Nowegian Anders Helstrup has captured one of the most astonishing moments in skydiving history – clear footage of a thumping meteor whooshing past him at 300km/hr, all on video. Helstrup jumped from a small plane that had taken off from from Østre Æra Airport in Hedmark. [This post first ran on our tech and gadget website, Techly]

Late last night, filmmaker Tatia Pilieva released her short film entitled First Kiss. It is a project with a simple premise: she invites total strangers into her studio and simply asks them, in their own time, to kiss each other. Beautifully shot, the result is a perfect combination of awkward and heart-warming.
A Go-Pro fell out of a plane, landed in a pig pen and was found intact: you won’t believe what it recorded!
We don’t have many details of this, but take the YouTube video description for what it is. A GoPro is ready to go in a skydiving plane with a bunch of jumpers. Somehow, it accidentally falls from the plane, and tumbles down, spinning furiously (and we see a cool effect of recording framerate/spin-rate almost matching) all the way. And it keeps recording.

This video is really freaking me out. Arturo Castro, who made the video, used an opensource framework to create this application, which digitally substitutes his face in real time. One day, the world will be just like The Running Man.
I was in Metropolis, hanging with my buddy, Dan Rutely, and he’s like, ‘Do you want to see the new video I just finished?, I’m like, ‘yeah, buddy, Dan!’ The video’s a trip that messes with perception of visual reality. I could go into an explanation here, but just interact with it yourself. He’s since […]
This work left me amazed. I originally caught wind of this here. Sandy Noble created these artworks by using a Polargraph, which is a pen attached to a string that is run by two motors. Love it.
Don’t we all get tired of our interior design every now and then? Sometimes I prefer the simple white, other days a colorful hippie-style, and that etno style is really comforting somehow, too. But who can afford to buy new furniture all the time? The team at Mr Beam from The Netherlands came up with a perfect solution for a daily redecorating.
Simply astonishing, that’s about the only way to describe this artful collaboration between Shinichi Maruyama and Tetsushi Wakasugi.
This video is mesmerizing, overwhelming, and terrifying. Little wonder I love it! I’ve watched it several times in the hopes of trying to figure out what part is my favorite. But by the time the video is over, I’m too exhausted to even process fully what I’ve just seen. So I’ll just settle with the […]
Most insects don’t bother me, except for ants. I find ants incredibly disgusting, mainly because where there is one, you know there are about fifty more. So when I heard that some guy took a colony of ants, placed them in his scanner, and videotaped them, I was a little disturbed, to say the least.
