Damn. They’re getting pretty good at this.

Catching Sand Fleas

I didn’t even know these things existed. I’m sure they’re harmless, but as far as I’m concerned it’s another reason to avoid the beach.

Airplane Vs Zero Hour

Who knew? “AIRPLANE!” is actually a shot-for-shot remake of the 1957 film, Zero Hour.

One Week in One Minute

While most time-lapse videos show things moving, with this one I wanted to capture as little motion as possible. My thinking was that if there’s anything gross living in the water meter pit in my basement I wanted to know about it. So I set up this time-lapse and condensed a week of time into one minute.

It’s interesting to see the things that move; the pipes condensing, the water meter moving during the day, and the water level slowly lowering. But what I think’s more interesting are the areas that don’t move. It’s a little eerie to see the days fly by while literally nothing happens.

It kinda reminds me about this recent story about a French apartment left neglected and untouched for 70 years, or the seal on King Tut’s tomb as it was discovered thousands of years exactly how it was left. There’s a very specific part of my brain that gets tickled by this stuff.

Terminator-Inspired 3d Printer

This is a pretty cool 3d printing demo.

It’s fun to extrapolate how fast 3d printing will get in the future. We’re getting closer, quite literally, to objects appearing out of thin air.

Hantu Tinggi, or, The Creepiest Video I’ve Ever Seen

Hantu Tinggi is a Malaysian mythic demon with a similar vibe to Slender Man. Fine. Nothing too scary there. Every culture has its share of ghouls and goblins.

But this video is seriously one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen.

The New Tesla’s “Insane Mode”

Check out this video of the new Tesla P85D accelerating from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds.

To get a sense of the amazing forces during acceleration, check out how the little girl’s phone clings to the seat at the 2:47 mark. Unreal.

Ridiculous Archer Video

Meet Lars Andersen. This guy’s talents are amazing. But there’s something about seeing him running around shooting those arrows that really cracks me up.

Making the 1980s HBO Intro

If you’ve ever seen 1980s HBO, you’ve seen this intro. Enjoy this fascinating (and extremely dated – I mean, they had to physically create a bronze HBO!) making-of.

As a young kid, seeing the camera go inside the “O” with the spinning lasers was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

Real-time Digital Modeling of a Face

At first this video doesn’t seem too special, but skip to 1:48 to see what’s possible.

We’re officially *that* much closer to not being able to believe our eyes anymore.

Slow Flying Airplane That Hovers like a Helicopter

So apparently the Russian Antonov An-2 has such a slow stall speed, it can appear to hover like a helicopter. In this video it’s going around 20 MPH.

There are some reports of people even jumping out of one of these planes without a parachute, and not getting injured.

Just crazy.

Getting Fancier with the 3DRobotics IRIS

After lots of practice I’m getting more comfortable flying the quadcopter. That’s not to say it’s easy (or not still terrifying), but it’s getting more familiar.

My next challenge is to get some interesting shots with the mounted GoPro. This weekend I did some flying upstate, and made this compilation. Some shots are a little shaky but overall it’s a fun first foray into ariel videography.

Musicless Music Videos

I can’t explain why, but these musicless music videos really crack me up.

I guess they’re funny because they shine a light on the silliness of the music video genre.

Long Island City Snow Time Lapse

In advance of yesterday’s snow storm I aimed my webcam out the window and started recording.

The accumulation isn’t particularly interesting since there was a heavy wind and a hot vent, but at least watching the Citibank building’s lights is pretty cool. It’s also neat to see how dark things get when the show stops at around 10PM.

How Does Zach King Upload His Videos to Vine?

Vine sensation Zach King has been getting a lot of press lately. And for good reason – his Vines are truly amazing.

I understand how these effects could be achieved by using After Effects and similar programs, but my question is how does he upload these pre-recorded videos to Vine? From my understanding Vine only allows you to upload video shot directly within the app.

Any thoughts? Leave a comment!
