I just can't believe that nothing in this video is real

Despite being four years old, this 60-second spot for a brand of kitchen countertops is still some of the best, most realistic 3D I've ever seen. It's not only the perfect produce falling in slow motion—it's everything. The fruit, the tomatoes, the bits of quartz, the stones, the gas, the vitroceramic. Everything. » 10/27/14 1:15am Monday 1:15am

This is now Earth's largest ship—so big it can lift oil rigs off the sea

This is the Pieter Schelte, which is now the largest ship sailing the seas, surpassing even the Maersk Triple-E*. Built by Daewoo in Korea, this catamaran is so huge that it can lift entire oil platforms off their base, pick up the base itself, and then transport it all to port—which is exactly what it's designed to… » 10/18/14 3:23am 10/18/14 3:23am

DiverXO—a three Michelin-star restaurant in Madrid, Spain—is known for its radical flavors and textures. Eating there is not just about the food.

These giant RC airplanes are so huge that you can fly a kid inside

I have seen big RC planes in the past, but this is really getting out of hand. I watch these videos of giant scale RC planes—the one above is 85 percent of the original size!—and I have to wonder what's the point. OK, I know the point: It's awesome, but you may as well build the entire thing. » 10/10/14 1:02pm 10/10/14 1:02pm

I can't believe this orangutan is not real

When I first saw this ad I spent a while scratching my head wondering how could they train an orangutan to do the stuff this one does.

Insane 73-foot canyon backflip is not the craziest thing in this video

Jeff Herbertson's backflip over a 73-foot canyon at Red Bull Rampage 2014 is pretty insane. But, somehow, it seems easier and less terrifying than the beginning of his run, which made me grab my chair's arms. No matter how may of these videos I see, I would never get use to them. » 10/07/14 12:42am 10/07/14 12:42am
