Oh My God Look At These Caterpillars

Ignore everything and watch these fluffy little dudes. They look like aliens or villains from some 1950s horror movie or something, but they’re all caterpillars you can literally find in the United States. Read More >>

One of the Largest Jigsaw Puzzles in the World Made Harder as Video Game Stop Motion

“Wildlife” is a very big jigsaw puzzle. Clocking in 33,600 pieces, it ranks among the largest manufactured jigsaw puzzles in the world and will set you back over £300. But if you think it’s hard enough to do on its own, imagine turning it into a stop motion movie of classic video games while you assemble it. Read More >>

Watch a Skier Almost Hit People on a Ski Lift While Doing a Double Backflip

I’m not 100% sure the skier in the video didn’t clip his head on the boots of the people sitting on the ski lift but even if he did, he’s still bad ass enough to complete a casual double backflip off a wild jump. I’ve watched the video multiple times and it’s totally nuts because after he completes the first flip he’s basically eye level with the lift and yet he kept on spinning to nail the trick. The distance he travels in the air is sick. [Newschoolers via Digg] Read More >>

These Magical Sculptures Look Like Animations But They’re Actually Real Objects

Artist John Edmark has done it again. With the clever use of a strobe light, he’s created sculptures that move like weird computer animations but are actually real, 3D printed objects that physically exist. It’s a bit hypnotising but so, so cool, because they move and grow and essentially come alive in such a bizarre way. Read More >>

Slicing Random Things with a Knife Heated Up to 1,000 Degrees Unleashes All Sorts of Fury

There are so many reasons to try this at home tonight: you get to see the metal blade burn that glorious fiery orange red, you get to hear inanimate objects make weird whining sounds as they get sliced open, you get to imagine what spontaneous self-combustion would be like, and in some cases you might even spot what looks like souls escaping from a bar of soap (that’s probably my favourite thing that gets cut).

These Crazy Coin Stack Sculptures Seem Impossible

Japanese artist Thumb Tani may have negotiated some deal with how gravity works on Earth for his coin sculptures. Or maybe he is somehow channelling Magneto’s superpowers. No way could be just carefully placing these coins on top of each other, because I struggle with making a penny stand up straight. Read More >>

Lighting 100,000 Firecrackers at the Same Time is as Ridiculous as You’d Expect

Here’s a really fantastic use of time, resources, and uh, creative freedom: get 100,000 firecrackers and light ‘em all up at the same time. Read More >>

You Can’t Even See the Plane Trying to Land Through This Impossibly Thick Fog

What the hell. The fog at Gatwick Airport was seemingly eating up any aeroplane that was trying to land on the runway. Some of the planes appeared to disappear into the unknown, never to be seen again (they were probably sent around). Others were able to land when the fog cleared up a bit, but still, that’s a scary time to be in the air. Read More >>

This Stabilised Footage of a Mountain Bike Ride is so Damn Buttery Smooth

Stabilising footage of Steve Storey’s mountain bike ride down a bumpy trail almost turns it into a casual cruise around the park. That is, if you only stare at the top half of the footage. If you look at the bottom half, you’ll see how much thrashing is actually going on. And if you try to look at both at the same time, you’re probably going to get a little bit sick because it looks so impossibly smooth that your brain will crash. [GoPro World via Digg] Read More >>

Coolest Art Nerds Ever Taught a Computer to Create a Rembrandt

This painting below looks almost exactly like the work of the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt, and as far as science and mathematics is concerned, it is a Rembrandt. But instead of oils and brushes, researchers from Microsoft and other organisations used data points and 3D printing. Read More >>

Fantastic Photo of a F-16 Flying Perfectly Straight Up in the Air

This here is one helluva shot. The F-16 looks suspended in space and time, perfectly perpendicular to the ground and the horizon while shooting straight up to all that is holy. The vertical pose reveals the weaponry on its underside and the super slick maneuver shows just how incredible these aeroplanes are. Great, great photo. Read More >>
