Timelapse Tree Growth


The above video chronicles the growth of a tree over the course of 5 years.  Something I’ve always wanted to do to be honest. The below video chronicles the growth of the same tree, from a different angle, for an additional year. {PetaPixel}

R/C F-16 Drone


You know, my birthday is coming up soon, something like the above would be an excellent gift… Apparently, this guy spent around $1,500 total on the whole system.  I love the pan-tilt he put on the Ken doll’s head.  And the hands that are just barely visible in some shots.  Very, very well done. It really makes … Continued

Custom Jurassic Park Car


It must be because of the 20th anniversary of Jurassic Park, but I’ve been seeing lots of Jurassic Park themed photos, and posts, and stuff lately.  This project takes the raptor shaped cake. These 2 people turned a 33 year old Suburu into an ace looking Jurassic Park Jeep replica, Here’s what the car looked like when they … Continued

These fail after 37,112 attempts


What are LEGO Bricks? How many clicks does it take to get to the center of a LEGO brick? Unlike the question this is modeled on, we have an exact answer – 37,112. Well, almost exact.  You see, Phillipe Cantin tried LEGO Bricks from the 1970s.  His reasoning being he wanted to see how older bricks would … Continued

How Floors are made


Honestly, I’ve always wondered how those were made. Also, I’m not that big of a fan of the wide boards, I like the smaller 2.25 inch boards.  They look nicer, and are less likely to warp over time, but that’s me. This is all good to know, since I plan on doing it all myself … Continued

Paper Parkour


This guy has skillz.  Drawing skills at least.  That and hand eye coordination, moving all the correct folded paper pages correctly, and on time.  Nicely done dude.

Alternate History Thursday – A WWII Birthday


Today is the 124th birthday of Adolf Hitler.  In our alternate reality, Hitler isn’t the horrible dictator we know him as today.  As we’ve, America is Communist, and if you know about history, and Adolf Hitler, you know that he hated Communists.  Anyway, I digress. World War 2 went on for the same number of … Continued

Tilt-Shift Pond


I like ponds, I like photography, I like time-lapses, tilt-shift I can live without, but it’s ok.  The above video combines all 4. Now, this is a much larger pond then the ones I’ve built over the years, but that being said, if I had the space, I would totally build one this size, or better. … Continued

You should go see Elysium


Matt Damon. Si-Fi. District 9. That’s all you need to know about the above trailer. Hell, Matt Damon was all I needed to know, and I’m in. This looks like a killer movie though.  And the more I see of Neill Blomkamp, the more I like.  I really think that in time, he will make a … Continued

VHS – Forever


In honor of the the 57th birthday of the VHS, YouTube has a new special mode on select videos.  Unfortunately, you have to go to the actual site to see it.  You might be thinking 57 years, that’s along time.  Anyway, go watch All Your Base, the way you’ll recount it to your children. {VentureBeat|YouTube}
