Japanese creative group Ugoita spices up traditional origami crane figures by adding electromagnets to their feet. The paper cranes stand on a board where the electric currents are applied to make them move and dance like the most awesome boy band I've ever seen.
German TV channel Dein Sky Film just posted this cool dashcam video showing a TIE fighter crashed on a highway. I don't know if this is a viral ad for the new Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens or what, but whatever this is, it's really cool.
Swiss ex-fighter pilot Yves "Jetman" Rossy completed this awesome formation flight with aerobatics Champion Veres Zoltán in the skies of Dubai. The video contains a surprise at the end—is it another pilot flying a wing or a new Jetman model altogether?
These two guys were hiking in the High Tatras Mountains, in Slovakia, when they bumped into this frozen lake with crystal clear ice. The water is so transparent that they seem to be floating a few feet above the ground.
I know most of the food we eat contains iron to some extent. And I also know that iron is vital to keep us going. But watching this awesome science experiment where corn flakes get attracted to a magnet creeps me out a little. This is why it happens:
I've seen videos edited with footage from ISS before, but I like this one above the rest for two reasons. One: A human-made spacecraft is going land on the surface of a comet for the first time ever, and we NEED to celebrate it with some good space porn. And two: The remarkable editing work of Guillaume Juin.
Forget Kiss and any other heavy metal band. The guys from the band Modest Mouse got the best pyrotechnics ever at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, three days ago: An actual meteor blazing through the sky. Never the rock was so real in rock'n'roll.
The first stage of Smart Highways—a project created by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and Hejmans Infrastructure—is finally completed and looks amazing. Located at N329 in Oss, Netherlands, this futuristic road has lines that glow in the night and charge during the day. Increasing driver's visibility and safety.
NBC12 posted this photo of (allegedly) the most patriotic sunset I've ever seen. According to them, the image was taken by two viewers from the Virginia Center Commons—a mall in Richmond, Virginia.
How many times did you use the word awesome today? Five, ten, fifteen times? We use the word awesome so often and, most of the time, so incorrectly that the term has lost its original sense— maybe forever. Comedian Jill Shargaa explains why in this AWESOME TED talk.
Nike has created this huge touch-sensitive LCD basketball court for a training session with Kobe Bryant. The court has built-in motion sensors that track every player's movements individually. It can also display training exercises for them to follow and show statistics on performance. Check out the amazing video.
Simon Ata is a breakdancer based in Melbourne, Australia, and he works hard everyday to stay fit so he can perform properly. Judging from what I see in this video the guy is more than ready.
Most animals contract and dilate their pupils depending on the light available around them. Geckos are no exception but unlike other species the difference between those two stages are much more dramatic. They go from having cute round pupils in low light to evil narrow slits when it's too bright.
This video shows how powerful low frequency sounds—blasting at full volume through the insanely powerful speakers of car—can affect vapor clouds. The movement is so unreal and seemingly unnatural that it feels like someone edited a series of jump cuts following the rhythm of the music.
This is Rummu, an abandoned soviet prison and forced labor open mine located in Estonia. Underground waters flooded the quarry and the place oddly went from being a horrible punishment facility to become one of the most enjoyable beaches I've ever seen.
An artist metamorphosed three contortionists into animals using some incredibly realistic body painting. She created three different detailed designs including a tarantula, a giraffe and a seahorse.
This video—shot from a drone over West Palm Beach, Florida—takes you into the heart of a fireworks display. It almost feels like you are flying between explosions surrounded by colors hundreds of feet above the ground. I thought fireworks couldn't get any better and I was wrong. This is awesome!
