YouTube literally can’t count all the views Psy’s Gangnam Style has, it actually broke the Internet!

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in News on Thursday 4 December 2014

Since Psy’s Gangnam Style music video went viral in 2012, two years later it’s still going strong. It was the first video to pass 1 billion views, and in May it passed the 2 billion mark. However, now instead of breaking YouTube records, Psy just broke YouTube itself. YouTube wrote in a short post: ‘We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met Psy. Gangnam Style has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!’

Best dad ever was caught dancing at a music festival and our lives may never be the same again!

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in Video on Thursday 4 December 2014

This is the best duo to spot at a music festival. The overly-prepared dad and the half-enthusiastic son. This dad definitely made up for his kid’s lack of excitement with some stellar dance moves. Dressed as only the best dads should be: shorts with long black socks, a fanny pack full of all the important dad gear, a safety string for his glasses (so he can safely groove out, of course) and ear plugs to comfortably listen to the loud bands.

Sticky notes that look just like a Piet Mondrian painting

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Design on Thursday 4 December 2014

When Oscar Wilde said that, ‘Life imitates art’, I didn’t think he meant sticky notes. ‘Monde Riant’ is an artful sticky note made by designers Catherine Denoyelle and Assia Quetin for Pa Design. It’s inspired by the minimalist and abstract works of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Just like the real-life artworks, ‘Monde Riant’ is composed […]

Video game screenshots juxtapose the Paris of today and of the French revolution

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Wednesday 3 December 2014

Thanks to technology, we get to compare modern-day Paris with photos of itself from the French Revolution, a time where photography hasn’t been invented yet! In his series ‘Then & Now’, gaming enthusiast Damien Hypolite went around 1790s Paris in the video game Assassin’s Creed Unity and took screenshots of iconic places. He then biked around the city – the real one – holding up the photos to stage a meeting between past and present.

By Rachel Oakley in Video on Tuesday 2 December 2014

We’re used to seeing koalas out in the Australian wilderness, perched high in gum trees, maybe out on the road while crawling from tree to tree. But a koala enjoying the beach? Yup. Over on Queensland’s Magnetic Island, it’s quite common to see koalas enjoying an ocean view on the sand while tourists look on […]

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Tuesday 2 December 2014

With little space to accommodate seven million people, Hong Kong’s homes had nowhere to go but up. As a result, the cityscape is a truly unique sight composed of towering skyscrapers, cramped housing developments, crisscrossing laundry lines, and countless apartment windows.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Food and Packaging on Monday 1 December 2014

Not all butchers sell meat, which is evident from Aubry and Kale Walch’s animal-friendly butcher, The Herbivorous Butcher. Due to open its first brick-and-mortar doors in April, this butcher is going to look exactly like a regular meat butcher shop with ribs, bologna, pepperoni, sausages, and jerky in the windows, except none of the products will contain meat.

This video of someone mountain biking has amassed 24 million views in one month and it’s not hard to see why

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in Video on Monday 1 December 2014

Because I have a fear of heights (don’t judge),  I sat on the edge of my seat and watched the video with eyes wide shut most of the time. In it, Danny Macaskill went biking at the scenic Isle of Skye in Scotland and spat at death in its face repeatedly by riding along the […]

If toddlers texted, this is what mums would have to put up with!

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Tech on Saturday 29 November 2014

Toddlers might know how to play with your tablet and even know how to access those embarrassing photos in your phone, but what they don’t know how to do is text. But what if toddlers did text? Can you imagine all those requests? Change my diaper! Feed me! Change me! Cuddle me! Amuse me! Turn the TV on! Turn the A/C on! It’s too cold, do something about it! They’d be blowing up Mum and Dad’s phone every few minutes.

In the hidden camera show Would You Fall For That, producers revived a clever social experiment by the classic TV program Candid Camera, to see whether or not people would be easily fooled to conform.

Sweat it out at this beauty of a sauna with amazing views across the bay

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in Architecture on Friday 28 November 2014

Compared to the standard four-by-two saunas we sweat it out at gyms and hotels, this beauty designed by Canadian studio Partisans is one of a dream kind that we wouldn’t want to get out in a hurry, heated up or not. A large percentage of the prefabricated design was constructed before it was transported and installed on a private island’s prehistoric formation by the bay, located at the north of Toronto.
