    This is a video from the Panteón de Dolores, a 590-acre cemetery in Mexico (the country's largest) with some 700,000 graves. That is a lot of graves. In my backyard? Just a single guinea pig grave. But beyond the fence? An ancient Indian burial ground. And trust me, you d... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of OMOTE real-time face tracking and projection mapping. In this example, it's used to apply "digital makeup" to a model, then transform her into a cyborg, all in real-time. That's pretty impressive. I actually have a couple friends who it would... / Continue →

    Meet Mr. Knocky. He's a battery-free drum toy controlled by swinging two hand-held triggers. Not digging the sound of his plastic drums? No worries, you can swap them out for other percussion surfaces like a soup can or Pringles can. He is not recommended for use drumming o... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Redditor LivingOaks' mom's eyeball. It has a naturally occuring blood vessel that spells love in cursive. Although personally I think it actually spells lovem. Still, I'm jealous the blood vessels in my eyes don't spell anything. Maybe if I pop a fe... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Brazilian boy who built himself a little model excavator using plastic syringe hydraulics. Most impressive. I'd pretend I could have made something like that growing up, but I'd be lying. The only thing I was making at his age were messes in my pants. "... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy demonstrating Lenz's Law with neodymium magnets and a thick-ass copper tube. Why does the magnet fall so slowly? SCIENCE. Via Wikipedia because I suck at explaining things except 1) where babies come from and 2) RPG strategies. Eddy currents (also... / Continue →
