Watching this knife get sharpened sent satisfying tingles up my spine

It’s unfair. Something so simple and basic should not be able to leave a lasting impact on me like this. The act of sharpening a knife, though absolutely a skill, is a chore of maintenance, not something that can be this satisfying to watch. But just take in this video below, hear the knife on the whetstone, see the… »8/17/15 7:04pm8/17/15 7:04pm

Watching lasers cleaning stuff is one of the most satisfying things ever

I wish I could go through life with one of these lasers that can remove any substance from most surfaces. Accumulated dirt, steel rust, bronze patinas, plastic residues, oil... anything. Above you can see oxide being remove from a steel plate (source video) but check out this collection I just made. So satisfying. »1/05/15 11:46am1/05/15 11:46am

Man makes pliers out of solid wood using just 10 cuts and pure genius

Watch David Warther making wooden pliers using a simple pocket knife his dad—famed master carver Ernest "Mooney" Warther—designed in the early 1900s. It only takes him ten cuts and a few seconds—so simple and fast that it feels like magic. Also, I can watch this man talking and doing this forever. »12/22/14 6:05am12/22/14 6:05am

Watching this machine punching through metal = Total satisfaction

Behold the TRUMPF TruPunch 2020! I don't know if the TRUMPF TruPunch 2020 is the best. I don't know how much the TRUMPF TruPunch 2020 costs. Hell, I don't know anything about the TRUMPF TruPunch 2020. Except watching it in action is a surprising source of inner satisfaction. Also, trumpf should be a verb. »12/18/14 11:07pm12/18/14 11:07pm

The beautiful process of making a Beretta shotgun is hypnotizing

Here's a short film by Ancarani Studio that shows the process of making a Beretta shotgun. It's an artistic take on the process so shots are dolled up and it's not like every Beretta gun comes with its own birth movie but I love seeing how futuristic robots and old fashioned human craftsmanship work together. »12/15/14 10:22pm12/15/14 10:22pm

Fascinating video about a lighthouse keeper gives me goosebumps

There is no music in this short. No narration. Just the sounds of the daily routine of one of the last lighthouse keepers in the world: Leonardo Da Costa. He maintains the lighthouse at Cabo Polonio, Uruguay, a dangerous coast full of sunken ships. If you experience ASMR, you are going to love this. »12/02/14 12:30am12/02/14 12:30am

Watching this guy making lids for pots is so satisfying I get goosebumps

Casey thinks watching people making pots is soothing. It is true. I also think it is extremely satisfying. Watch master Hsin-Chuen Lin creating two different kind of lids for the same jar and you will see what I mean. It's such a pleasure I get goosebumps. At last, I understand Demi Moore. »10/05/14 11:40pm10/05/14 11:40pm

Few things are more satisfying than seeing a submarine punch through ice

Pinching bubble wrap. Getting something stuck on your teeth out after trying for minutes. Watching pop tarts being made. And spring coils. And pretzels. And caligraphy. There are many strangely satisfying things in the world. Seeing a nuclear submarine breaking through arctic ice is one of them. Enjoy: »10/05/14 1:58am10/05/14 1:58am

Going to spend the rest of the day watching this mesmerizing GIF, thanks

Take me to the stake, but I'm not a fan of the Bugatti Veyron. I just think the design is a bad pastiche of old and new. But I'm a fan of watching things being carefully made and a fan of strange industrial machinery like the trolley above, used to join the different parts of the car. So satisfying. »9/09/14 6:40am9/09/14 6:40am
