Short film: R2-D2 adorably falls in love with a blue mailbox

Say it with me: awwwww. In a story that's a little like the first hour of Wall-E, this short film, Artoo In Love by Evan Atherton, tells a cute love story of R2-D2 and a blue mailbox. R2 starts holding picnics with it, zaps away people who want to mail things and holds an umbrella over its head when it rains. » 3/31/15 10:33pm 3/31/15 10:33pm

Watch more cute monster animation drawings get inserted into daily life

I just love the fake cartoon reality that augmented reality artist Marty Cooper creates within our world because his character drawings pack so much personality that I just want them to be real.

Lance Abernethy, a maintenance engineer from Auckland, New Zealand, 3D printed a cordless drill that measures 0.67 inches (17mm) tall, 0.27 inches (7.5mm) wide, and 0.5 inches (13mm) long and holds a 0.02 inches (0.5mm) twist drill.

This is what 8-year-old boys do when they're told to slap a girl

The public service announcement is emotionally manipulative and strategically pulls at the most basic things everyone likes (cute kids! young love!) and might even be scripted and is definitely edited nicely but still, the message is something that even children know to be true: Domestic violence is not okay. » 1/08/15 9:57pm 1/08/15 9:57pm

What it must be like being inside a kid's imagination

Here's a cute video that I hope turns into an entire series: imagining what's inside a kid's, well, imagination. The video starts off with the toddler waving a stick as he runs around (as kids tend to do) and then transforms into a level of Super Mario Bros. Being a kid is awesome. We just see the stick, they see… » 1/08/15 2:17am 1/08/15 2:17am

Short film: What happens when plastic toys go to war

This wonderfully made animation plays up war as something that's actually fun. There are guns that shoot out flowers and grenades that are actually caramel apple lollipops. But because war is actually a horrific thing, the short film takes a dark turn. If only it were always flowers and lollipops. » 11/26/14 11:57pm 11/26/14 11:57pm

Tiny hamster eating too much tiny Thanksgiving food is just so cute

I love Thanksgiving. Family and food and football and more food and Fall and friends and even more food. And though all of that makes me smile, nothing captures the essence of holiday better than this tiny hamster: it ate so much tiny Thanksgiving food that you can see the guilt and worry on its face. » 11/18/14 11:10pm 11/18/14 11:10pm

Escape from demolishing fire proves that cats have nine lives

Legend says that cats have nine lives. Science says that's superstition based on uncanny reflexes and amazing flexibility. Whatever. Looking at this video of the fire of the Towers Hotel—a historic hotel in Dauphin, Manitoba—I'm saying nine damn lives and scientists can go poop in a litter box for all I care. » 9/22/14 6:53pm 9/22/14 6:53pm

Tiny hamsters eat tiny cakes for a super silly tiny birthday party

After enjoying a tiny burrito two months ago, tiny hamster just went to a birthday party for his prickly friend tiny porcupine.
