  • ‘History of Game Controllers’ in 76 Seconds (Video)

    ‘History of Game Controllers’ in 76 Seconds (Video)

    Last week I watched a short film by French filmmaker Alain Resnais, which traced the making of a red plastic bowl all the way back to the origins of Earth minerals. I’m reminded of Le chant du Styrène because a recent video simply called History of Game Controllers takes a similar, if much less ambitious, backwards approach to […]

    ‘Kubrick In Color’ Explores Director’s Palette (Video)

    When most people think of director Stanley Kubrick (The Shining, Full Metal Jacket), if indeed they think of him at all, they probably visualize one of his perfectly composed shots without giving much conscious thought to the colors inside them. But Marc Anthony Figueras has a new short video out that takes a chromatic view […]

    ‘The Colors of Feelings’ From Thomas Blanchard (Video)

    It’s Friday, which means it’s almost the weekend, which means you might be in the mood to just veg out in front of some swirling colors and soothing music for a few minutes. If so, I present to you The Colors of Feelings, a new video from artist Thomas Blanchard. The Colors of Feelings was […]

    The Tempo App Speeds Up and Slows Down Your Videos

    Video and film are the only media that can effectively manipulate time itself, which is why slow-motion (and it’s less cool cousin, fast-motion) are so effective. Tempo is a new app that lets you take advantage of the power of these techniques more easily and conveniently than before. Tempo gives users four speed settings (five if you […]

    Carbon3D: The Liquid 3D Printer (Video)

    3D printing is still in its infancy in terms of reaching its full potential, but it turns out there’s already a faster and cooler alternative to traditional 3D printing. It’s liquid 3D printing, represented by the incredible Carbon3D 3D printer. Liquid 3D printing utilizes some magical/scientific combination of liquid resin, oxygen, and (of course) lasers to create […]

    ‘SDO: Year 5′: NASA Releases Solar Highlight Reel (Video)

    The sun: What’s it been up to? Sure, we see it almost every day up in the sky, but that doesn’t mean we really know what’s going on up there. Luckily, the people at NASA have been keeping an extra-close watch at the sun’s activities for the last five years with the Solar Dynamics Observatory, […]

    POW! WOW! Taiwan 2014 Video Released

    Last summer, the global street art festival known as POW! WOW! made its way to Taiwan for the first time, and the results were typically memorable. But if you weren’t in Taiwan last summer, you can still experience the vicarious thrill of the festival thanks to the official POW! WOW! Taiwan 2014 video now hitting […]

  • ‘Every X-Man Ever’ Included in Comprehensive Timeline from IGN (Video)

    ‘Every X-Man Ever’ Included in Comprehensive Timeline from IGN (Video)

    The X-Men franchise is known throughout the world for being a giant, tangled mass of a seemingly infinite number of intersecting characters and worlds even by the standards of modern comics. So it’s an understatement to say that outlining every single Marvel Comics mutant in one video is an ambitious undertaking, and why it’s so […]

    Mark Broderick Does 9 Front Flips During BASE Jump (Video)

    BASE jumping, even in its most typical, unadorned form, is more than sufficiently dangerous for most people. The danger of it, in fact, is probably the whole point of why people do it. But Mark Broderick is decidedly not most people, as a recent video of his BASE jumping exploits demonstrates. The video shows Mark […]
