Boston Characteristics’ Atlas robotic doing parkour

This is incredible (chilling?) video of Boston Dynamics' Atlas robot doing parkour. Parkour is the perfect sandbox for the Atlas team at Boston Dynamics to experiment with new behaviors. In this video our humanoid robots demonstrate their whole-body athletics, maintaining its balance through a variety of rapidly changing, high-energy activities. Through jumps, balance beams, and…

Definitely spectacular and hypnotic stop-motion animation utilizing matches

This is an incredibly well done and hypnotic stop-motion animation by Tomohiro Okazaki featuring every conceivable play on matches. And as if the creativity wasn't impressive enough on its own, it plays back at 60fps. The stop-motion video I made for my high school art class played back at two frames per second so 60…

Apparently snownados exist and if you guessed that they're dust devils but with snow you'd be correct. They're not nearly as interesting as Sharknados or firenados, but those are impossibly high bars for a 'nado. Keep going for another video of a snownado. According to The Weather Network they're so rare only a half dozen…

It's basically an excuse to create enhancements in assistive technology and a nice showcase for the current state of the industry. Also, cyborgs competing against cyborgs. Plus the competitions are…

This guy bought some titanium tetrachloride which basically turns into white smoke when exposed to air and decided to soak a ball in it to make the world's smokiest ball. A few weeks ago, I bought some titanium tetrachloride which, I heard is one of the most obnoxious chemicals. When exposed to air, almost immediately,…

This person invested 5 years constructing this world record domino robotic

Mark Rober, the former NASA engineer who builds all those package thief glitter bombs, spent 5 years building this robot that sets up dominoes. Not only does it set up dominoes, but it sets up, like, a lot of them. Apparently a world record amount at 100k over 24 hours. The robot is obviously super…

Scary Japanese basketball robotic sinks complimentary tosses throughout halftime at Olympics

During halftime of the USA-France men's basketball game at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Toyota Engineering Society's CUE 3 humanoid robot rolled out to midcourt and proceeded to start draining shots with the same ease at which it would also probably kill a human. And although the shooting is impressive, what I'm really interested in are…

This is what occurs when you put liquid nitrogen into an unclean container

This is a short video showing what happens when you pour liquid nitrogen into a dirty container. I'm not a scientist so I can't give a scientific explanation of what's happening, but as best as I can tell it make the dirt go move. And move away. With bubbly. Keep going for the full video.…

In an effort to get people back into museums, Pornhub (yes that Pornhub) has produced a "Classic Nudes" museum guide (the page is SFW but the URL is Pornhub so click at your own discretion). From orgies to outdoor, and even a little bit of nipple play, prepare to savor in every stroke of these…
