Delayed once, Gavin O’Connor’s police drama Pride and Glory is making it to the big screen 10/24. We hope this is a winner, with Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Jon Voight in the cast.
The amazing Metamorphosis is the work of Glenn Marshall, who used Processing.org, an open source animation and interaction language. It’s set to music by Scottish group Boards of Canada.
Like Ruben’s Tube, these musical Tesla coils by Steve Ward and Jeff Larson are designed to be seen and heard. Above: listen to them play the Zelda theme song. Even crazier: Lightsabers.
Just when we didn’t think Red Alert 3 could get any campier, they release this remix trailer, with George Takei saying “‘All your base…” and Jenny McCarthy making very suggestive noises.
Physics class needn’t be boring: a Rubens’ Tube uses sound waves, propane and fire to put on a pyrotechnics show. It was MADE for hard rock: skip to 2:00 to really watch things cook.
Feist is a quirky little Mac-only jumping game, developed with the Unity engine by Florian Faller and Adrian Stutz. We’ve given it a spin and find it to be simple yet strangely hypnotic.
Above is a methane rocket test by XCOR Aerospace; check out those shock diamonds! There are certain advantages to methane, including lower price, higher density and easier storage.
We had a good laugh with this video from College Humor about Professor Wikipedia. It starts off slowly but hits the nail on the head regarding Wikipedia’s usefulness (or lack thereof).
As if the last GameStop trailer wasn’t enough, this trailer for Gears of War 2 goes into details about the new weapons and execution animations. About the latter: freakin’ awesome.
F1 racer Mark Webber gives us this stunningly rendered tour of the upcoming Grand Prix night race in Singapore, which will comprise 61 laps in all and over 300 kilometers.
We’re anxiously awaiting the public release of This Way Up, a creepy Tim Burton-esque short about two undertakers. It’s currently making the rounds on the film festival circuit.
Above: Designer toy store Rotofugi does a great job turning the tables on toy collectors with this funky commercial. Bearbrick, Gloomy Bear and Wee Ninjas all make cameos: Ninja, please!
Shakerboys is a hypnotic video by West London based artists Viewmanoid that makes you want to take the day off and chill; it’d be perfect as an iTunes Visualizer plugin.
Every Easter Sunday Eve, two rival churches in Vrondados, Greece engage in a “rocket war” with the aim to hit the other’s belltower; they use up to 80,000 fireworks in the display.
You don’t need to understand German to appreciate these Star Trek commercials. They’re made for the German Sci Fi Channel and are pretty darn funny; oh Spock, you rock.
The crazy guys at EepyBird are most well known for their Mentos + Diet Coke experiment. Their latest video is called Extreme Sticky Notes: think slinkies. Lots of slinkies.
Cliff Kushler, who brought you the famous T9 text entry system, is now working on Swype. It’s an amazingly fast and intuitive way to type; the video above will knock your socks off.
Coming 1Q 2009, Plain Sight starts innocently enough with a cute robot gallivanting around a Tron-esque cityscape. That is, until he takes out a sword and starts kicking robot ass.
The movie above was filmed at NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory at Berkeley; Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt have turned magnetism into a visual and auditory feast for the eyes.

There’s a classic fourth wall moment in Gremlins 2 where they break into the movie theater; the fan-made video above has them breaking into your DVR. PS: Making of video, here.
We have mixed feelings for the chatty Killzone 2 video above; it’s trying to sell the multiplayer aspects of the game, but the absence of foul-mouthed 14 year olds is deafening.
Above is a fantastic skateboarding video shot with a Red One Camera; it’s cheaper than professional cameras but will still set you back $17.5k for the body alone.
Jake von Slatt is one of the better-known steampunk artists; above, Wired interviews him. Datamancer has actually taken von Slatt’s idea and sells Mac and PC steampunk keyboards.
