Ben, the protagonist of this film, doesn’t know if the end of the world is real or if it’s all just a nightmare. But! It’s a nightmare that’s so cool that I actually wouldn’t mind living there. I would sit comfortably on a rooftop, grab a beer, and just watch that beautiful world go to hell.
Dystopian visions of the future always portray scenarios where humans have destroyed Earth and turned it into a desolated and almost uninhabitable place. But our planet probably doesn’t really care. It will just wait us silly humans out until we disappear and then flourish again just as beautiful and full of life as…
If you were a kid between the release of the first Star Wars movie—in 1977—and today, you’ve probably played with as many awesome Star Wars toys, action figures, vehicles, aircraft, LEGO sets, plush toys, anything as possible. This great short film about being a kid will instantly bring you back all those childhood…
Imagine having a magical device that can duplicate any organic life you put into it. You could have an army of adorable pets, a mountain of your favorite veggies, man, you could even erase hunger from the face of the Earth with it. Unfortunately, such a device only exists in this short film and even there it doesn’t…
Whether we are talking about a distant planet in a galaxy far far away or uncanny living creatures that are half-men and half-spiders, Mother Nature is ruthless and its rules apply the same everywhere. Make sure you don’t miss the twist at the end of this short because it’s so damn good.
Corporations aren’t inherently evil, they’re only as greedy as the humans behind them. It’s the same thing with robots. Robots have no emotions—they’re just a pile of metal, screws and circuits—but they will be as mean, selfish, and avaricious as the people programming them.
In the post-apocalyptic future depicted in this short film there are no smartphones, computers, or octopus-shaped robots trying to destroy what’s left of humanity. Here, people live like they used to in the Wild West. They ride horses, wear funny hats, and are well aware that their life is worth less than the bullet…

Japanese airliner ANA just announced the R2-D2 Jet—a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner painted to look like the iconic Star Wars' droid. The aircraft will take off this fall and will serve to promote the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.
This neat commercial for Cycling Canada—an organization for the promotion of cycling in Canada—shows a bunch of bikes riding themselves and having fun. The cyclist-less bikes appear drifting on dirt roads, descending mountains full speed, and zooming across the city.
Tim Bavington—an artist based in Las Vegas, Nevada—is not the first artist who tries to paint music but he might be the most precise at it. He came up with a color-coded chord wheel that helps him translate notes into colors so he can make paintings that are exact visualizations of his favorite songs.
If you thought penguins were just cute and adorable, this amazing photo—featured in National Geographic's Your Shot—of an Adélie penguin angrily confronting the camera may make you think otherwise. It was captured by Gordon Tait near Casey Station, Antarctica, while shooting a series of time-lapses.
Whether they make us laugh, cry, be inspired, or turn us angry, great monologues stick to our brains long after we leave the theater, sometimes for years, and often become part of our popular culture. The guys at Cinefix put together this neat video ranking their favorites in movie history.
Prepare to get hypnotized by the skills and precision of Overgaard & Dyrman, a design brand located in Copenhagen, Denmark, that makes beautiful furniture mixing traditional hand crafted techniques with modern technology. This video shows the process of making one of its gorgeous Wire Dining Chairs.
Youtube user DBZGTBGM1991 compiled this neat video showing how Darth Vader's "I am your father" line—probably the most famous line in movie history—sounds in 20 different languages. My favorites are Japanese and German—because they sound pretty scary.
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."
I've never been too keen on playing dress-up but this clever cup trick made me change my mind. It's very easy to make, works like a charm, and you can create your own characters—which is what makes it exciting. You just need a few transparent plastic cups, a permanent marker, and some basic drawing skills.
Even though my eyes see the artisan's finger placed for reference next to the small piece of ebony at the beginning of the video, my brain can't believe that the resulting pot is the size of his finger nail. The level of detail is so perfect that my stubborn mind still thinks it's a full size pot.
