Follow me ghost car navigation is the definitive road guide

Jaguar Land Rover says they are developing a 360 Virtual Urban Windscreen that "will allow drivers to get a complete, unhindered view of the road." I can't wait for this to be real and standard in every car, although it's probably still a long time away. The best feature: Follow Me Ghost Car navigation. » 12/19/14 11:28am Yesterday 11:28am

How they made the crazy visual effects of Transformers 4

Skip the terrible movie that was Transformers 4 and let's just enjoy the awesomeness of this visual effects reel from ILM for Transformers: Age of Extinction. It has all the coolest parts of the movie anyway, which is all the parts with any Transformers transforming and any Transformers causing explosions. » 12/18/14 11:37pm Thursday 11:37pm

Seeing a giant rubber band ball being cut in half is freaking gross/cool

This has to be one of the grossest and coolest things I've seen in a while: A guy cutting a giant rubber band ball in half. At one point it feels like the thing is alive and getting ready to jump on the dude's face and suck his bodily fluids out of his eyes, mouth, and nostrils. Disgusting spaghetti monster. » 12/18/14 2:05pm Thursday 2:05pm

This is how sex robots would look inside one day (NSFW)

I initially thought this was a photo of a real art installation reflecting on the the objectification of women. It is not. It's a computer generated cutaway of a futuristic sex robot made by French 3D artist Cesar Vonc. After seeing this, I don't think I would be able to get aroused by a sex robot ever become available » 12/18/14 1:47pm Thursday 1:47pm

The magic of writing on water with a fountain pen

I love to watch someone write with a fountain pen. It tickles my neck to hear the strokes and see the trail it leaves. This video, however, shows a fountain pen writing a little differently. It's writing with water. It's like magic seeing the ink of the fountain pen instantly flow through the capillaries of the water. » 12/17/14 10:26pm Wednesday 10:26pm

The giant tubes that launch missiles in strategic nuclear submarines

Impressive photo of the giant tubes that house four of the 24 Trident II D5 Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBM) carried by Ohio-class nuclear submarines. 14 of these submarines travel for months underwater, carrying fifty percent of all the active thermonuclear warheads in the US arsenal. » 12/17/14 2:38pm Wednesday 2:38pm

This weird medieval instrument sounds like a badass electric guitar

I didn't know a medieval instrument could sound so cool until I saw this video. French musician Guilhem Desq electrified his hurdy gurdy and connected it to a sampler to create these amazing sounds that seem to come straight out from Tom Morello's guitar. Go to the two minutes mark to see what I mean. » 12/17/14 8:00am Wednesday 8:00am

A tank cut in half is a pretty damn cool thing

There's never enough things cut in half. My favorite books when I was a kid were cutaway books. Everything in the world should be cut in half and put on display. Like this Leopard I tank, the democratic heir to the Panzer and Tiger tanks that made the Wehrmacht famous and the first line of defense against the Soviets. » 12/17/14 6:21am Wednesday 6:21am

I want to live in this cool spaceship from Star Citizen

This is the Anvil Industries' Carrack, a 403-foot (123-meter) ship and a maximum crew of five. It is not real, but it feels real because every detail in its interior has been designed as if it were a real vessel. It's one of the ships from Chris Roberts' Star Citizenpersistent alternative universe, where I'm sure I… » 12/17/14 5:22am Wednesday 5:22am

Here's some new Game of Thrones season 5 footage

HBO has very slowly teased and trickled footage from Game of Thrones season 5 with a secret website and now this new elaborate seemingly self-destructing mobile-only video teaser. Luckily, the footage—which could only play once and not be screenshotted—was leaked online and we have a few more seconds to get excited. » 12/16/14 11:16pm Tuesday 11:16pm

Behind the scenes video shows how 7 scenes are filmed in 1 take

Johnnie Walker has a pretty neat commercial on air these days that covers 7 different backgrounds in just one long take. It's a well choreographed and perfectly timed spot, a man is at a bar and starts walking. As he moves along, the scenery changes along with him to give him a wild journey until he's back at the bar. » 12/16/14 9:59pm Tuesday 9:59pm

This amazing photo of a city is actually a game world map

When I first saw this my first thought was "wow, Shanghai is looking really crazy these days," thinking that it was a photo. Then I zoomed in and saw it was a painting. The author is a young French artist named Klaus Pillon—who says it is the world map for an incoming indie video game. His work is great. » 12/16/14 7:42pm Tuesday 7:42pm

Spectacular photo of airplane flying by volcano's molten lava eruption

I don't know if I would be happy to fly so close of an active volcano that is ejecting lava like in this photo featured on National Geographic's Your Shot. I know the plane is not flying over the lava, but you never know when Earth is going to get mad. For photographer Baldur Sveinsson, however, it's business as usual. » 12/16/14 7:01am Tuesday 7:01am

Excellent short on relationship problems and interdimensional physics

BAFTA-winning animator Jonathan Hodgson said Rabbit and Deer—a short film by Péter Vácz and Attila Bertóti—"is a stunningly directed and beautifully crafted play on the universal conflict of emotional incompatibility." He's completely right. Some of the best 15 minutes I've spend in front a screen this year. » 12/16/14 5:54am Tuesday 5:54am

These cool animated optical illusions never get old

I never get tired of Brusspup's Amazing Animated Optical Illusions series because I love making my eyes feel dumb and in turn making myself feel even dumber. It's always good to humble yourself with optical illusions. Especially optical illusions that seem to be animated to move but are actually just well designed… » 12/16/14 12:03am Tuesday 12:03am
