  • Headless Robotic Dogs Are The Stuff Of Sci-Fi Nightmares [Video]

    We aren’t sure if androids dream of electric sheep, but after watching this demonstration of Boston Dynamics’ Spot, we know that we have nightmares of electric dogs. Weighing in at 160 pounds, Spot is an electrically powered and hydraulically actuated four legge-d robot designed for indoor and outdoor operation. What exactly does that mean? We’re not sure, but we’re guessing it means these hellish automatons will track us down wherever we run to when Skynet goes live.

  • Skydivers Come Within Inches Of Airplane Prop In Nope Video Of The Year

    When you choose to go skydiving, you’re already taking some pretty big risks. After all, you’re jumping out of plane at 15,000 feet and falling at 120 mph. With all that going on, the last thing you need is the pilot of the airplane diving 180 degrees, coming within inches of chopping you up with the plane’s prop. Yet for some reason, that’s just what this pilot decided to do…

  • These Girls Tried Cosmo Flirting Tips On Real Guys And Their Reactions Are Hilarious

    Four girls try getting sexy with real guys using the tips from a fashion magazine. There’s no shortage of advice on how to get a guy’s attention, but who takes those tips seriously? These ladies agreed to give it a whirl, and while the tips got mixed reviews (although the “ass grab” turned out to be a turn on) the results were nothing less than laugh-out-loud worthy. — Source: GoodManProject

  • Taiwanese Animators Tackle The Super Bowl…and Nail It [Video]

    Did you somehow miss out on the Super Bowl? Maybe you were overcome with gluttony, forcing wings down your gullet while everyone else was crowded around the TV, screaming at the idiocy of the refs or the idiocy of the Seahawks. Well none of that matters now, because this crude CGI cartoon from Taiwanese Animators has everything you need to know about the game, from training with Conan O’Brien to Katy Perry’s halftime show to a measles-infected trip to Disneyland.

  • Brilliant Parody of Every 90s Commercial [Video]

    The youth of today have no clue what it was like advertising to 90s kids. Every commercial needed a bunch of bored brats, parents that just don’t understand, sports superstars, cartoon sound effects, and people transforming into silver goo a la Alex Mack. Check out this brilliant parody, featuring all of those tropes along with a horrific twist, and try not to immediately head out for Big Game Liquid Slam and Big Game Pizza Pigskins.

  • Using A Drone To Deliver Chocolate Is Awesomely Complicated [Video]

    So you finally got yourself a drone and naturally, your first instinct is to use it to deliver chocolate to your buddy on the other side of town. But if this video is any indication, there is a ton of planning and practicing that must be done to accomplish such a feat safely and successfully. In the video, a drone travels 7 miles across Hong Kong, over hills and skyscrapers, to deliver a piece of chocolate in less than 14 minutes. The video footage is impressive, offering natural views of a city often thought of as nothing more than a mass of people and giant buildings. But what’s really interesting is the description of how such a feat was accomplished, with extensive research into elevation and a team of seven pilots so the drone is never out of sight. It may not be practical, but damn is it awesome.

  • The Simpsons As Animated Pixel Art [Video]

    Why do we love pixel art so much? Is it because it reminds us of the hours we spent playing Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis as kids? Or the hours we spent drawing pictures on our calculators in high school instead of paying attention to whatever we were supposed to learn in Calculus? Whatever the nostalgic reasons for loving pixel art, it makes sense to use the medium to pay tribute to another nostalgic favorite—The Simpsons. Pixel artists Paul Robertson and Ivan Dixon recreated the iconic Simpsons intro while adding in references to so many episodes, you’ll nostalgia-gasm before the 2 minute video is through. The Danny Elfman-scored theme song has also been recreated by Jeremy Dower in a retro style that sounds like something from a Commodore 64 SID chip. Now excuse me while I fall down the rabbit hole of Simpsons reruns.

  • Frustrating Video Game Recreates The IKEA Furniture Building Experience

    Höme Improvisåtion, a hilarious game created by a small team in just 48 hours as part of Global Game Jam 2015, accurately recreates the frustrating experience of assembling IKEA furniture. In the game, you receive a delivery containing multiple interlocking pieces and no instruction manual. And you thought it was tough trying to follow IKEA’s wordless pictograms. To make it simple, all of the peg on the pieces are the same size, so every piece fits together. Oh wait, that makes it incredibly difficult. Check out a clip of the game below, then download it for free for Windows or OSX at Höme Improvisåtion.

  • Wanna-be Daredevil On A Mountain Bike Tried To Base Jump Off A Cliff. Keyword: Tried.

    Welp, you win some and you lose some. This one would be filed under lose. Watch this incredible point-of-view footage of a failed bike base jump from something called the Bolivian Death Road. In the link you’ll see a few examples of jumps that actually worked out. Somehow, incredibly, this extreme bro didn’t die but he did suffer fractures in his forearm and obliterated knees.

  • Steve Buscemi And Danny Trejo Star In A Very Special Episode Of “The Brady Bunch”

    The Snickers ads with people transformed into angry and outrageous celebrities have been great thus far. But when the teaser ad featuring Danny Trejo as Marcia Brady first appeared, we knew we were in for something special. Snickers released this brilliant Super Bowl commercial created by BBDO New York a few days early, and it looks like Trejo isn’t the only unlikely star appearing as one of the Brady girls.

  • Djokovic Versus An Abrams Tank Is The Greatest Tennis Match Ever

    Novak Djokovic is currently ranked number one in tennis worldwide, but if you’re not a tennis fan, you probably had no idea. That’s because a lot of folks just don’t pay attention to tennis. But what if Djokovic were to face off against an Abrams tank outfitted with a tennis racquet? It would be the biggest sporting even since the Fridge boxed Manute Bol! Watch the awesome video below, then check out more work from Australia-based independent filmmaker Michael Shanks at Facebook.

  • Jimmy Kimmel Pranks Health Nuts With “Fake Cold Pressed Juice” Made With Fun Dip and Skittles

    Jimmy thinks it’s crazy that people have been paying $8 a bottle for cold-pressed juice, which is supposed to be better for you. So we decided to invent our own juice company and went to the Farmer’s Market to see what people thought of our “cold pressed juice.” However we didn’t tell them until after they’d had some that the juices were made with Fun Dip, Tang, Creamsicles and Skittles.

  • NFL Bad Lip Reading 2015 Edition [Video]

    The often overlooked yet greatest benefit of capturing football in high-definition is the fact that we can read every player’s lips and enjoy these always great Bad Lip Reading videos. It’s true! Before HD, football fun was in the form of blooper VHS tapes made up of hours of looped replays punctuated by Boots Randolph’s “Yakety Sax.” Those were dark days, indeed.

  • Street Artist Creates GIF Viewable From Space [Video]

    Street artist INSA is know for his GIF-ITI works where he photographs his street art as he slightly modifies it each step of the way in order to create an animated GIF. Recently he teamed up with Scotch distiller Ballantine’s and traveled to Rio De Janeiro to create a work of GIF-ITI that’s viewable from satellites orbiting the Earth.

  • This New Video Game Trailer Captures The 90s Perfectly [Video]

    A Kickstarter campaign has sprung up for an indie computer game called Strafe and it looks incredible. The first-person shooter eschews high-tech graphics and innovative gameplay for Quake-style mindless rampage. In fact, the graphics look just like the 1996 classic. And to show just how much they love the ridiculous 90s, the developers created this retro-ad that’s just like a Genesis commercial from our childhood but taken to an insane extreme. In a world where new games with their vast, three-dimensional worlds are too much for our 30-year-old brains, this game looks like something that’s just our speed. Just imagine blowing away those alien creatures while chugging some Surge…

  • Edited State Of The Union Address Posted By John Boehner [Video]

    Last night, President Obama delivered his annual State of the Union address, and now that the Republicans have taken control of Congress and the President is halfway through his final term, he’s adopted a bit of an IDGAF attitude. He took a few jabs at his opponents and vocalized his disdain for climate change deniers and torture. But, as a Reddit user pointed out, if you watched the address on House Speaker (and Republican) John Boehner’s YouTube Channel, you probably missed those parts. In fact, you definitely did, because they were edited out. At the 43:25 mark in the video above, President Obama actually said “I’ve heard some folks try to dodge the evidence by saying they’re not scientists; that we don’t have enough information to act. Well, I’m not a scientist, either. But you know what — I know a lot of really good scientists at NASA, and NOAA, and at our major universities. The best scientists in the world are all telling us that our activities are changing the climate, and if we do not act forcefully, we’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods, and massive disruptions that can trigger greater more »

  • Explore The Andromeda Galaxy In 4K [Video]

    A couple weeks ago, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captured the largest and sharpest picture of the Andromeda Galaxy. The full image, capturing 100 million stars and thousands of star clusters across 40,000 light-years, is 1.5 billion pixels and would require 600 HD screens to view the full image. We don’t know about you, but we don’t have that kind of set-up. This video allows you to explore the image on your small single screen. But pump the quality up to 4K and watch it fullscreen and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

  • Costumed Do-Gooders Create NYC Subway Etiquette Video

    New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority has been working hard to educate subway passengers about the do’s and don’ts of subterranean travel. Although things like don’t litter, don’t take up multiple seats, and don’t dance on the pole and kick someone in the face seem fairly obvious, about six seconds into any subway ride will show you just how uneducated commuters can be. To help educate travelers, Christian “CJ” Koegel and his partner Chris Zelig wore full-body suits and recreated the MTA’s Courtesy Counts campaign. Hopefully these do-gooders will be rewarded with a key to the city or, at the very least, their video will go viral.

  • Spectacular Cockpit View From Red Bull Air Race

    We’re not professional aerobatic pilots or anything, but this looks pretty damn insane. The video is from Czech pilot Martin Šonka’s point-of-view in his Edge 540 V3 during the Red Bull Air Race in Ascot, UK. Be sure to watch it in HD and fullscreen to maximize the awesomeness.

  • New Documentary Examines Atari’s Unbelievable Downfall [Video]

    Since anyone reading this article is probably a video game junkie we have a gallery of the 24 Signs You Grew Up A Video Game Junkie. Once you’re don’e scrolling through and determinng if you had a problem as a kid be sure to watch a the video about Atari’s unbelievable downfall. New Documentary Examines Atari’s Unbelievable Downfall [Video] In 1982, Atari was leading the video game revolution and was fastest growing company in the United States. With the popularity of Steven Spielberg’s E.T. in theaters, Atari hoped to cash in on the success with a video game based on the movie. But in order to deliver the game in time for Christmas, the game was rushed, developed in five weeks rather than the six months to a year spent on previous titles. 1.5 million units of the rushed game were sold, but it was obviously flawed and universally panned. And Atari had 3.5 million unsold E.T. cartridges to get rid of. So what did they do? Legend had it that Atari disposed of the unsold cartridges in a landfill in New Mexico, but the story was usually dismissed as nothing more than urban legend. Then in 2014, an excavation more »

  • Nintendo Powerglove Repurposed As Stop-Motion Animation Controller [Video]

    Robot Chicken animator Dillon Markey was tired of running around sets, going from his computer to the camera to the puppets between every shot. He dreamed of a controller he could wear on his wrist to save his sanity and a hell of a lot of time. Then he realized that such a device already exists..sort of. The Nintendo Power Glove, a glove with programmable controller, was the coolest looking accessory when it came out in 1989. Who wouldn’t want to control a video game with their hand? It was even a prominent part of Nintendo commercial/feature film The Wizard, where antagonist Lucas Barton states “I love the Power Glove. It’s so bad.” He was right, it certainly was bad. Only two games that took advantage of the technology were released and the accessory quickly failed. Now Dillon Markey has saved the Power Glove’s reputation by transforming it into a Bluetooth controller. He’s been using the device for a year and a half now and s constantly amazing other crew members on set. What failed accessory will Dillon tackle next? Our vote is for the Sega Activator. That stupid mat must be good for something.

  • One Of Those Days 2: Hands Down The Most Insane First Person Ski Video You’ll Ever See

    X-Games gold metal winner Candide Thovex was having another one of those casual days in his home resort of Val Blanc, France.

  • Tilt-Shift Video Of Norway Looks Like Tiny Toy World

    We can’t get enough of the fantastic, toy-like worlds created with tilt-shift photography. And “The Little Nordics,” a time lapse, tilt-shift video of Iceland and Norway from Damp Design, is one of the best we’ve seen. The footage was shot using Panasonice GH3 and Canon 7D and 650D cameras then the tilt-shift effect was added in post. For some behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot, check out Damp Design on Facebook.

  • A Clockwork Orange Recreated In Grand Theft Auto [Video]

    Long before people with nothing better to do complained about the sex and violence portrayed in video games such as the Grand Theft Auto series, they complained about the sex and violence (and ultraviolence) in films such as Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. With that in mind, it’s only fitting that iconic scenes of Alex and his droogs from that film have been recreated using Grand Theft Auto graphics. Now if only someone will recreate the entire movie…

  • Drone Footage Of Frozen Chicago In Magnificent 4K [Video]

    Soaring Badger Productions created this incredible video showcasing a bird’s-eye-view of Chicago in the dead of winter. All footage was captured in temperatures below 10 degrees Fahrenheit using a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter and GoPro Hero 4 camera. Filming took place over two weeks and was made difficult by the GoPro’s battery quickly draining in the extreme conditions. Be sure to pump up the playback quality to 4K and fullscreen view for the full effect.
