Is that a proton torpedo exploding through space? Nah. Maybe the world's most incredibly unsafe powerline crackling in the night sky? Or how about a CGI bit from The Hobbit? Well, no, but close. It has to do with a dragon, see.
I thought I would be bored with silly Siri videos by now but nope! Not even close. I'm still laughing my ass off. This one shows a make believe feature in Siri that I wish was really real: Siri can rap any Notorious B.I.G. song.
The sequences of this video would marvel anyone with a pair of eyes. Couple it with the lyrics of What a Wonderful World recited by Sir David Attenborough and you would make our wonderful world even more wonderful. [Thanks Nick!]
This is beautiful, like an animated Monet painting of New York City. Our very own Matt Toder had this simple but amazing idea: to take every single cool NYC time lapse and layer them together into one single video.
This very rare video was recorded in the 1980s. It shows Steve Jobs talking about the origin of Apple. It's fascinating to see how he hints at the Next Big Thing, back when the Macintosh was still a secret project in development.

Watching this cube slowly turn itself inside out as its internal gears mesh together is a mesmerizing and puzzling experience. It looks like it should never work, but it does.
While authorities debate the authenticity of Iran's high school gym UAV display, The Daily Show has tackled the whole imbroglio on its own. Who ever thought talking about an RQ-170 Sentinel could be funny? Game of Drones! Yes!
