Simple robot arm is hilariously efficient at packing up bolts in a box

This robot is so dumb and goofy but also very, very decent at its very, very simple job: it packs up bolts in such perfect alternating orientation that it would make any factory worker jealous. In fact, with the soundtrack that the video is set to, I almost wish that I will come back as this robot arm in my next life. » 4/24/15 8:20pm Friday 8:20pm

What an insane 343x camera zoom would look like zooming in from 3 miles

In the future, we might be able to zoom in from an impossible far off distance and see a target like some insane sniper. Daniel Taylor made this simulation that shows what an extreme 343x super ridiculous zoom would look like and it’s crazy to imagine that this could be real.

Awesome video shows what it must be like to control and break gravity

Can you imagine if you had a knob you can turn to sway gravity whichever way you like it? Clemen Wirth’s imaginative experimental video, Gravity, just does that. Water can be poured upwards, paint can drip sideways, flying balloons can fly down and the whole world can be bent in any shape you want. It’d be such a… » 4/21/15 2:30am Tuesday 2:30am

Guy invents color-coded chord wheel to translate music into paintings 

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. » 4/16/15 9:33am 4/16/15 9:33am

Seeing a trick from a magician's point of view makes it more impressive

This video of a magician's card trick flips the perspective around so that we can see everything from the point of the view of the magician. Somehow with the reverse angle, it adds more 'magic' to the trick and makes what the magician does seem even more impressive. I got lost just watching him shuffle. » 4/14/15 7:40pm 4/14/15 7:40pm

Real life Batman suit is strong enough to stop stabbings

Made from Kevlar, quarter inch Kydex plating and impact resistant foam, Armatus Designs created a real life version of the Batman suit. It won't stop bullets or make you Bruce Wayne but it is stab and slash resistant while still being pretty lightweight and flexible. I wouldn't recommend you putting it on and becoming… » 4/10/15 1:38am 4/10/15 1:38am

Photos show popular food deconstructed neatly

Here's a neat series artist David Schwen made with The Daily Share: he deconstructed pizza, cheeseburgers, tacos, sandwiches and hot dogs and then placed each of their ingredient separately on lunch trays. The comfort foods look almost surgical under this sort of layout. And, well, they also look like a slightly… » 4/09/15 10:01pm 4/09/15 10:01pm

Perfect GIF loops of machines that don't actually exist

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." » 4/09/15 9:24am 4/09/15 9:24am

The making of this black crystal bottle is ridiculously precious

There's a problem when you make things too precious, people are going to be afraid to use it. Take this Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac bottle, it's made by Baccarat Crystal and passes through the hands of twenty people before it's finished. Sure, it's fun to see black crystal transformed into a decanter for liquor… » 4/07/15 5:58pm 4/07/15 5:58pm

Spectacular video shows birds suddenly flying away from a power line

What a fascinating view. I don't pretend to know what triggers a bird's decision to take flight or what makes an entire flock want to take off all at once but man, is it cool to see. This video shows three recordings of starlings taking off from a power line: in real time, at half speed and at 300 frames per second. » 4/02/15 11:27am 4/02/15 11:27am

Photo of US Air Force F-16 Thunderbirds flying perfectly into the sky 

I love this spectacular picture of the US Air Force Thunderbirds flying in perfect unison into the sky because the trail they leave behind look like the fingers of a cloud monster giving the jets a boost into the air. And because they're above the clouds, it almost looks like they're flying on a Hoth-like different… » 4/01/15 11:31pm 4/01/15 11:31pm

A fun story about how sunglasses are made

Dick Moby is an Amsterdam-based brand that makes really cool sunglasses and they also put together this cute video to show how they… » 3/31/15 12:23pm 3/31/15 12:23pm

Hypnotic hyperlapse of Paris teleports you all over the beautiful city

Maxime Gaudet's hyperlapse experiment video of Paris lets you jump all over the city in 3 minutes. The video moves at such a frenetic pace that the feel of the video doesn't quite match up with the feel of the City of Love but it's still a lot of fun to watch because it feels like you're teleporting all over the place. » 3/29/15 11:00am 3/29/15 11:00am
