So how do you top a bunch of excavators playing the world's most massive game of Jenga? You put them to use doing what they were designed for: building stuff. Except stuff, in this case, happens to be the world's tallest sand castle towering over 41 feet.
Cat dressed up as Princess Jasmine on a magic carpet is winning Halloween, so far. We dare you to watch this adorable fur baby glide around on a magic Roomba carpet without screaming, "Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?"
This short film by French director Loïc Bramoullé displays the coolest spacesuit I've ever seen. Not just because its mean range of weapons, but also for its (artificial) intelligence to make decisions that protect its owner—a cute cat that seems a bit out of place—from things like evil alien bees.
Veterinarians see some crazy things come through their office doors. But perhaps the most entertaining - at least in cases where the animals come out just fine - show up on x-rays.

Seeing a smart cat walk on a treadmill to its plate of food tickles me more than it should. I scream out aww under my constant laughter. I must be a bad person. But let's be honest. Metaphorically, we've all been this cat before. We've seen our goal but we kept walking in place not knowing how to get there. Literally…
Here's a tiny kitten so happy to eat that he wiggles his ears out of pure enjoyment—or something—like Gizmo the mogwai. Apparently, animals moving their ears when they feel pleasure is a thing.
Interaction designer Chris Woebken has taken Halloween to its logical conclusion: helping one species pass for another.
These images—created in collaboration with animal ophthalmologists—show how cats see the world compared to humans. Cats have a wider view angle, focus the scene from a farther distance, see at night, and detect fast movement easily. All they need to hunt you down.
After a too-long hiatus, we're happy to announce that Gizmodo's Photoshop Contest has returned. And what better occasion to inspire its revival than the brand new cat Monopoly token sitting our desk, just begging to be put in outrageous situations.

Youtuber rasmusab has posted a video that's as adorable as it is thought provoking.
