Simple robot arm is hilariously efficient at packing up bolts in a box

This robot is so dumb and goofy but also very, very decent at its very, very simple job: it packs up bolts in such perfect alternating orientation that it would make any factory worker jealous. In fact, with the soundtrack that the video is set to, I almost wish that I will come back as this robot arm in my next life. » 4/24/15 6:29pm Yesterday 6:29pm

Awesome video shows what it must be like to control and break gravity

Watch the unbelievable restoration process of making an old book new

There is honor in having a worn down book with creases on its spine and dogeared corners and highlighter marks on its pages and a cover that barely resembles anything anymore. But sometimes, a book gets a little too roughed up and is on the brink of falling apart and needs fixing. You can fix it! Or well, this… » 4/16/15 11:01am 4/16/15 11:01am

Seeing a trick from a magician's point of view makes it more impressive

This video of a magician's card trick flips the perspective around so that we can see everything from the point of the view of the magician. Somehow with the reverse angle, it adds more 'magic' to the trick and makes what the magician does seem even more impressive. I got lost just watching him shuffle. » 4/14/15 11:53am 4/14/15 11:53am

This Game of Thrones Iron Throne toilet must be so satisfying to sit on

Made from Kevlar, quarter inch Kydex plating and impact resistant foam, Armatus Designs created a real life version of the Batman suit. It won't stop bullets or make you Bruce Wayne but it is stab and slash resistant while still being pretty lightweight and flexible. I wouldn't recommend you putting it on and becoming… » 4/09/15 12:02pm 4/09/15 12:02pm

Perfect GIF loops of machines that don't actually exist

Canadian graphic designer and 3D artist Gareth Fowler makes these neat and perfect infinite loops of unreal machines. If you ask him what he does to figure out how these machines actually work he would say "seek out a mechanical engineering student/graduate, buy them beer, and have them explain stuff to you." » 4/09/15 7:44am 4/09/15 7:44am
