This is what it looks like when you boil your GoPro just so you can see what it looks like to poach an egg in real time

This Japanese guy nearly destroyed his GoPro in the process, but for a worth cause.

Watch how dramatically this model’s face changes using “electronic make-up”

By using sophisticated facial mapping and face tracking and video projection, this model undergoes remarkable changes that looks like something straight out of a sci-fi film.

The World’s Smallest Movie: A Boy And His Atom

IBM researchers used a scanning tunneling microscope to move thousands of carbon monoxide molecules (two atoms stacked on top of each other), all in pursuit of making a movie so small it can be seen only when you magnify it 100 million times.

ESO Antenna TimeLapse
The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is a revolutionary instrument in its scientific concept, its engineering design, and its organization as a global scientific endeavor.
Thanks to its high resolution and sensitivity, ALMA will open an entirely new “window” on the Universe, allowing scientists to unravel longstanding and important astronomical mysteries, in search of our Cosmic Origins.

Some say he has absolutely no fear… all we know is that this is The Stig bungee jumping in an F1 race car

Holy shit, I nearly needed a change of pants just watching this.

That time in 2008, when Robin Williams jumped out of the audience and highjacked a BBC sponsored TED conference, because he could

During a taping of a BBC sponsored TED conference in 2008, taping had to stop temporarily due to technical issues when a voice shouted out from the crowd “Why, at a tech conference, is everything run so shittily?”, and then… Robin Williams.

Scientists at MIT were able to recover voice and other audio just from a silent video of a bag of chips and some leaves

By analyzing the nigh imperceptible vibrations of leaves and a bag of potato chips, scientists at MIT were able to reconstruct intelligible audio from 15 feet away. All those sound waves bouncing around from the conversation bounced off the chip bag and the leaves— something so minute, you might not think it would be possible to reconstruct an entire conversation from, but they did.

The NES30 is the best looking NES inspired modern game controller ever
There hasn’t been a shortage of novelty modern game controllers that mimic the look of the iconic NES controller, but the NES30 is perhaps one of the best looking ones, incorporating X,Y and shoulder buttons in a way that doesn’t disrupt the design flow of the original. Compatible with iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.

How an artificial superintelligence might give birth to itself, and why humanity might be fucked in the process

Lately, Elon Musk has gotten a lot of press for saying that true, self aware AI could be a bigger threat than humanity than nukes, and I personally don’t think this is hyperbole. While it seems inevitable that artificial intelligence will only continue to grow, become faster and more capable, there one day might be a point of no return, where AI becomes self-aware, self-repairing, self-evolving, and it might once that threshold is crossed, such a superintelligence could grow exponentially until human beings, once its master, becomes relegated to no more than worker bees— biological data collection and experience units feeding into an ever-growing artificial intelligent meta-organism.

NASA has an “impossible” engine that could change space travel forever

Until yesterday, every physicist was laughing at this engine and its inventor, Roger Shawyer. It’s called the EmDrive and everyone said it was impossible because it goes against classical mechanics. But the fact is that the quantum vacuum plasma thruster works and scientists can’t explain why. Shawyer’s engine is extremely light and simple. It provides a thrust by “bouncing microwaves around in a closed container.” The microwaves are generated using electricity that can be provided by solar energy. No propellant is necessary, which means that this thrusters can work forever unless a hardware failure occurs. If real, this would be a major breakthrough in space propulsion technology.
