This video beautifully symbolizes my experience with Drones.

One Week in One Minute

While most time-lapse videos show things moving, with this one I wanted to capture as little motion as possible. My thinking was that if there’s anything gross living in the water meter pit in my basement I wanted to know about it. So I set up this time-lapse and condensed a week of time into one minute.

It’s interesting to see the things that move; the pipes condensing, the water meter moving during the day, and the water level slowly lowering. But what I think’s more interesting are the areas that don’t move. It’s a little eerie to see the days fly by while literally nothing happens.

It kinda reminds me about this recent story about a French apartment left neglected and untouched for 70 years, or the seal on King Tut’s tomb as it was discovered thousands of years exactly how it was left. There’s a very specific part of my brain that gets tickled by this stuff.

Terminator-Inspired 3d Printer

This is a pretty cool 3d printing demo.

It’s fun to extrapolate how fast 3d printing will get in the future. We’re getting closer, quite literally, to objects appearing out of thin air.

Hantu Tinggi, or, The Creepiest Video I’ve Ever Seen

Hantu Tinggi is a Malaysian mythic demon with a similar vibe to Slender Man. Fine. Nothing too scary there. Every culture has its share of ghouls and goblins.

But this video is seriously one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen.

The New Tesla’s “Insane Mode”

Check out this video of the new Tesla P85D accelerating from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds.

To get a sense of the amazing forces during acceleration, check out how the little girl’s phone clings to the seat at the 2:47 mark. Unreal.

Ridiculous Archer Video

Meet Lars Andersen. This guy’s talents are amazing. But there’s something about seeing him running around shooting those arrows that really cracks me up.

Making the 1980s HBO Intro

If you’ve ever seen 1980s HBO, you’ve seen this intro. Enjoy this fascinating (and extremely dated – I mean, they had to physically create a bronze HBO!) making-of.

As a young kid, seeing the camera go inside the “O” with the spinning lasers was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.
