    This is a video from German watchmaker Nomos Glashütte of one of their modern watches being assembled. It was a treat to watch(!), mostly because I've always been fascinated with watchmaking (and collect vintage Doxas). Everything is so small. Did you know the jewels in a wa... / Continue →

    This is a Caribbean Pygmy Octopus that recently hatched at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in Florida. It's so teensy! If this were a Disney movie, it would think that pencil eraser is its mother. This is not a Disney movie though, this is real life. There are no ha... / Continue →

    This is a collection of cross stitch embroidered microbes and viruses designed and needled by Alicia Watkins (links to her Etsy store where they're all available). Great, now I'm convinced I have something. Probably the measles. Psyche -- I was vaccinated as a kid! See, I c... / Continue →

    This is a video of sushi chef Hironori Ikeno preparing his special -- tiny slices of fish atop single grains of rice. There is no way I could get one of those in my mouth without losing it first. And if it did make it to my face, I'd probably accidentally vacuum it up my nose... / Continue →

    This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before... / Continue →

    This is a short stop motion video from IBM that they created using SINGLE ATOMS as individual pixels. Do you know how small an atom is? No? Well imagine a bouncy ball. Now imagine a SUPER F***ING TEENY bouncy ball. That's how small an atom is provided you imagined a bouncy... / Continue →

    This is an Alien chestburster carved out of pencil lead by Hungarian DeviantARTist cerkahegyzo. It's not one of those giant pencils you used in kindergarten either, it's a regular one. Which reminds me -- in high school I carved mine and a girlfriend's initials into a tree tr... / Continue →
