Jazz Sabbath

Jazz Sabbath

This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve heard Black Sabbath’s music turned into jazz. But Jazz Sabbath created an entire album of Ozzy and company’s metal reworked into a concert-worthy jazz performance. Seriously, this is some really great music, so consider making a purchase from their Bandcamp page.

Making Thomas the Tank Engine Evil

Making Thomas the Tank Engine Evil

While his eyes always gave us the creeps, Thomas the Tank Engine is a pretty charming character. But in the hands of Adam from North of the Border, he’s is anything but pleasant. To turn Thomas evil, Adam sculpted a clay version of the anthropomorphic train with a blood red body, pointy teeth, and spider legs.

Heavy Metal Misirlou

Heavy Metal Misirlou

Musician Leo Moracchioli takes a detour from the beach with this scream-filled cover version of the Dick Dale and the Del-Tones surf rock classic Misirlou. The song that Pulp Fiction made famous (for the second time) sounds especially great when played with anger as Leo does.

Bending a Wire Bonsai Tree

Bending a Wire Bonsai Tree

Bonsai trees are typically living plants that require an immense amount of care and precision pruning. These talented artists show us how they make bonsais that require no watering – using thousands of strands of stiff metal wire to create their intricate designs. We wonder how long the process takes to do in real time.

Flaming Matchstick Races

Flaming Matchstick Races

Just Perfect set up a fun competition in which flaming matchsticks race toward a finish line. We’re not sure if the chemicals in different color match heads affect how quickly they burn or if other variables like the patterns and wood cause the lines to burn at different rates. Can you guess which color will win?

Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma’s animated short is one of the most artful things we’ve seen rendered in Unreal Engine 5, and its production design and storytelling are top-notch.

Filmmaker Scott Portingale and composer Gorkem Sen created this engrossing short film using macro and time-lapse photography to explore how fluids move, and chemicals react and change states.

AI-Generated Cereal Boxes

AI-Generated Cereal Boxes

AI image generation technology continues to improve – though it’s still not great at dealing with things like text and logos.

Formula 1 One Wheel Skateboard

Formula 1 One Wheel Skateboard

The Q has a love for Formula 1 racing. But we’re guessing from his past projects that he can’t afford to own a real F1 race car. He does however have a single F1 wheel and tire, so he got to work building a custom electric skateboard that rolls on it. It works much like the Onewheel, though it’s a bit trickier to straddle.
