The rumors are true, Charlie Brooker’s tech-fi thriller Black Mirror is returning as a new Netflix original series. And it’ll likely be just as thought-provoking and chilling as the original.
Oh hell yes: BattleBots is coming back to TV. This summer, homemade robots will battle to the death on television, just as Asimov intended. They'll be faster and stronger than ever before. Which makes sense, because the last time BattleBots was on television was over a decade ago. Imagine what they could do now.
Monty Python's new mostly-live-show premieres tonight at the London O2 Arena. And they just released this video to show a little bit of what a few lucky bastards will get to see.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind is one of my favorite movies ever, which is why I imagine our first contact with aliens like the video above: all pretty light and pretty music and pretty choreography.
Just a day after an air show crash took the lives of
three nine people in Reno, Nevada, another plane went down during yet another air show. This crash took place during the Thunder Over the Blue Ridge show in Martinsburg, WV.
I love what happens when you put technology in the hands of very creative people like André Chocron. Using only time-lapse photography, the Norwegian director created one of the best music light shows I've seen.

What could this be? Did Pac-Man dye himself in chrome? Did the power of my goatee split a rounded mirror in half? If you can make out the logo in the top right corner, you'll have a hint...
The Daily Show asks a very good question about the Large Hadron Collider: "Why the f*** would you want to recreate the Big Bang?"
The Samsung Show touchscreen projector phone may not be the first projector phone out there, but it is the first one that isn't a prototype, and doesn't come from a completely obscure manufacturer.
Hackaday has a piece about an upcoming Discovery Channel show called "Prototype this!" It's due in October, and since it's about making and modding robots and other gizmos, it sounds like a Mythbusters-meets-Makerfaire geeky heaven. [Hackaday]

The Beijing Times quotes the head of visual effects, who says that the 28 giant footprints that stomped through the air above the city, ending at the stadium,…
Discovery Channel is looking for a host for their new Super Testing show. You've got to be male, and between the ages of 30 and 50, and enjoy blowing things up and testing them I'd assume. I'd guess the perfect future star is a reader of Giz. Why not an editor of Giz? I don't know, I think we're all too doughy. So,…
