Satisfying: Watch 10,000 Buckyball Cube Get Destroyed

vxz1gigw6qxr7ugpgaks

Remember the Buckyballs, these tiny magnetic balls that could be arranged into fascinating 3D arrays? They’re now banned, you know, because we’re all kids and we need the Consumer Product Safety Commission to watch over us like hawks… But even though new Buckyballs can’t be sold, that doesn’t stop people from having fun with the millions that were sold before the ban. If you have 2 minutes to spare, you should watch the video below, featuring a 10,000 ball cube getting smashed to bits. It’s therapeutic in a way, knowing someone spent countless hours building it, only to smash it for our viewing pleasure.

That is all. Carry on.

Awesome Time-Lapse Video Of Things Being Sanded Down

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 2.11.47 PM

Maybe the title doesn’t sound that appealing, but you have to watch this video. It’s a fascinating piece by Laurin Döpfner, where he sands down various objects 0.5mm at a time and takes a picture, stitching them together into fascinating footage. There’s really not much more to it than that, so if you have 2 minutes to spare, check it out.

Beyond Awesome: Roller Coaster Planet Through the Lens of Six GoPro Cameras

To say that the things you can do with a GoPro is limitless is no exaggeration. It’s the world’s most versatile camera, used by amateurs, hobbyists, professionals, and everyone else in between. In case you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a GoPro is, well, it’s a waterproof and shockproof HD video camera that’s compact and comes with a wide variety of mounts for added versatility.

The clip above, dubbed as LittlePlanet RollerCoaster, is an example of the awesomeness that you can achieve with the GoPro–well, six of them, actually, and video editing software VideoStitch. Mounted on strategic areas, the resulting video turns the roller coaster into its very own planet, taking you along on a very scenic and exhilarating ride. If this doesn’t inspire you to go out there and shoot something artistic, then I don’t know what will.

Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos Is Your Feel-Good Video Of The Day

hamster-burritos-1

Y’all have to watch this. If it doesn’t put a smile on your face, you’re smiling-dysfunctional. If you need a description before watching a video, the headline should have taken care of that. If you need details in your description, the most we can add here is that the vid was made by “HelloDenizen”, who’ve made just one more vid called BubbleP0rn. We’re not sure what that one’s about (ain’t nobody got time to be watching all the videos) but it does have 2.7M views so it’s probably pretty good.

Ball Shattering Glass At 10 Million Frames Per Second

high-speed-camera

There really isn’t much to say about the above, other than “Holy Crap!” The world is full of the infinitely small, infinitely big, and the ridiculously fast. For the latter, there are instruments like the HyperVision HPV-X Camera of Shimadzu. Shooting at a leisurely 10 million frames per second, the above animation apparently spans around 0.000024872s-0.000072s, depending on the actual playback fps (which we’re not sure about).

Watch These Two RC Copters Lift A Full Grown Woman Off The Ground

HeliGraphix-Heavy-Ultra-Lifter-Crane-RC-helicopters_1

We had no idea that remote controlled helicopters could carry this much payload. Watch the video below as two remote controlled helis easily lift a woman off the floor, and carry her around a few feet. Yes, to be honest, the video is a little painful to watch (especially halfway through), but it’s also impressive. We don’t know much about the company behind the stunt, other than they’re German and appear to assemble these machines themselves. Maybe. Or maybe they make videos of themselves flying these things acrobatically. We’re not sure because the website is a little dense and unclear. But we don’t really care in the end, because all we really wanted to do was to show you the video below.

Flappy Bird Playing Robot Is Better Than You

Flappy-Bird-Robot

We’d like to think the Flappy Bird mania is dying down, but we’re not sure. Just a couple of days ago we found out that someone had sold an iPad Mini preloaded with the game for $8,000, so crazy people are still crazy it seems. And it’s in the midst of all this craze that we now turn our attention to Liu Yang and Shi Xuekun, two developers from the Shaanxi province of China, who’ve created a robotic contraption that plays the game, and plays is well. Using a webcam, the swing arm of an old hard drive and a stylus, this machine manages to blaze through the pipes like nobody’s business.

The point? Really, there isn’t. This is just a fun project and maybe a demonstration of skill from two guys who claim they took only four days to build and code the whole thing. Check the video out to see how it fares.
