This Prisma-type effect on photos and videos will probably get old one day (that day might have been yesterday) but my eyeballs are still enjoying how footage of real life can get transformed into moving art.
There’s really not too much to this, but if you need a break from the world or a little time-out on brain activity, just watch this totally silly video of silicone being poured over Lego bricks.
Watch as the guys from Baltimore Knife and Sword make a 400-year-old Dandao sword from China using some really old techniques and machinery.
Work can be frustrating. Sometimes you just want to line up every computer screen in the office and run over them with a 12-ton steamroller.
When I close my eyes at night, I can still hear that beautifully creepy score from Game of Thrones’ season finale, I can see the Great Sept of Baelor and the characters inside, and I can feel that chilly sense of doom.
Sending nudes isn’t a new phenomenon—the advent of camera phones took care of that—but for teens these days, a bevy of social media platforms make sexual exploration on the internet that much more thrilling, and that much more dangerous.
Friction welding already looks out of this world. I mean, watching two pieces of metal forge together through friction as they turn bright space orange?
I think the moral of the story (to my peasant ears, at least) in comparing a $5000 Martin D-42 guitar vs a $150 Motion TD-107 guitar is that if you know how to play the guitar, you can make any damn thing with strings sound good.

When you put footage of New York City through a neural network, you get a city that looks like beautiful, moving artwork.
“I don’t want to die.”That’s what Destin from Smarter Every Day says as his oxygen level drops dangerously low and yet he’s completely unable to put his oxygen mask back on to save himself because his brain isn’t functioning properly.
These soft patches of grass in Siberia look like a cool trampoline, but are actually concealing dangerous bubbles of methane.
What happens after you pull the parachute and land safely on the ground? Well, it’s gotta get packed up.
Everyone who was born without a smartphone in their crib knows how a printing press works... in theory.
Antarctica isn’t exactly a place I want to know more about. I mean, it’s cold, it’s dark, and it’s probably not meant for human life.
Billy Mitchell takes video games very seriously. He’s been called one of the greatest arcade gamers ever, and there’s even a documentary about his insane high score in Donkey Kong called The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.
Myanmar, Liberia, and the United States of America. Those are the only three countries left in the world that don’t use the metric system.
It’s easy to pinpoint certain things you love about a movie. I love Total Recall because of Arnold Schwarzenegger and scenes with exploding eyeballs.
Air hockey is Canada’s greatest pastime. Okay—that’s not exactly true, but who the hell doesn’t love a game of air hockey?
Artists David Bayo’s skills are all the more impressive when you lean it to get a closer look at his work.
