Sit back and enjoy this 14-minute video from a bread factory in Korea, where ingredients are combined, then kneaded into dough and baked in industrial ovens. Then the freshly-baked loaves of white and chestnut bread glide along an assembly line, tumble out of their pans and head to the cooling racks before slicing.
With enough skill and epoxy resin, you can make a guitar out of just about anything. Maker Noe Hervas shows off a colorful electric guitar he built by cutting a custom wood mold, filling it with stacks of guitar picks bathed in clear resin. At least he saved one pick to play it with.
The word “meteorite” conjures images of rocks falling from the heavens, but each day our planet is pelted with tons of micrometeorites, mostly smaller than grains of sand. Project Stardust founder Jon Larsen gets us up close and personal with 41 of these tiny, otherworldly objects thanks to a scanning electron microscope.
No, this isn’t one of those primitive building videos where they create the tools they need to make things. Omozoc’s latest video uses stop-motion animation to make it appear that a woodworker is crafting an object using their hands as their only tools. If only we could use our fingers as tiny routers to curve the edges on things.
Redditor Youknowimtheman says their brother is learning how to use the 3D animation program Blender. His short film, “Necromorphosis,” is anything but standard-issue CGI and is one of the strangest things we’ve seen in a while. And if we had to watch it, so do you.
It’s no Floppotron 3.0, but DJthefirst’s self-playing electromechanical dulcimer has got some serious soul. Put your headphones on, crank up the volume, hit play, and enjoy this soothing rendition of the Kate Bush track Running up That Hill (A Deal with God).
The motors used in electric-powered bicycles are usually pretty heavy. Engineer Tom Stanton wanted to see if it would be possible to rig up a tiny but strong 1kW motor from a drone to propel a bike. The trick was creating a series of gears and belts to reduce the motor’s high rotational speed while increasing its torque.
We all have a pretty specific image in mind when someone says “caveman.” But did these thick-browed, cave-dwelling early humans exist, or is this just a caricature created by popular culture? Today I Found Out digs into what we now know about the Stone Age, and how closely it matches up with these stereotypes.
Mandalorian armor is made from a rare metal known as Beskar. Since we can’t get Beskar here on Earth, artist Bobby White created this tiny version of Mando’s helmet out of other precious metals and adorned it with diamonds and black rhodium. He used 3D modeling software to produce castings, then refined the pieces by hand.
In 16th century France, a mysterious book was published, filled with illustrations of 120 strange monsters and not a single word of text. Video essayist Hochelaga explores the imagery of The Drolatic Dreams of Pantagruel and its creepy, grotesque, and comical creatures, and what they might have meant.
This wonderfully satisfying machine sprays out an even layer of batter onto a spinning platter, cranking out perfectly round crepes in seconds. When each one is done, a mechanism ejects the delicious disc onto the assembly line. Here’s another similar machine working its magic.
With news that Deadpool 3 will bring the character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, TortillaDelta13 couldn’t wait for the movie to come out. So they got to work editing footage of Ryan Reynolds’ snarky hero into scenes from The Avengers and other MCU flicks as Nick Fury’s gun-for-hire to take down Loki.
Stylophone expert maromaro1337 performed a medley of the heavy metal music hidden in plain sight in the corridors of the 1990s first-person shooter, DOOM. The game’s soundtrack swiped riffs from Metallica, Pantera, AC/DC, and Anthrax, among others. See how many you can identify without opening your eyes.
Cambry from JerryRigEverything uses a wheelchair to get around, but obstacles like staircases can certainly get in the way. So she and her husband Zack reached out to Scewo to test out their amazing motorized wheelchair, which not only can climb stairs but can go off-road, and lift its passenger to a standing height.
There’s something so satisfying about how you reload weapons in video games. In this compilation video by Kommander Karl, he shows how you can use the same method to reload everyday items like a vacuum cleaner, a toaster, and a pencil sharpener. We do the same thing every time we use a caulk gun.
Ready to make your own horror movie? Sound effects are a big part of building the suspense, and this unique musical instrument from AzzamBells makes unsettling sounds. It has bars, springs, and clackers that reverberate to create its creepy noises. Three built-in microphones let you easily record its sounds.
Combination padlocks aren’t necessarily the most secure locks, but there’s a certain appeal to not needing a key to unlock them. In this video from Maker B, they show us how they machined pieces of stainless steel bolts and assembled them to form a working combo lock that looks like it came right off the store shelf.
You know what would have made the Jurassic Park movies better? If the dinosaurs wielded weapons. Imagine if the velociraptors had Gatling guns or if the T-Rexes had flamethrowers. North of the Border gives us one of those things by sculpting a the king of the dinosaurs cosplaying as a fire-breathing dragon.
The tilt-shift lens technique is known for making real-world locations look like miniatures. Flurdeh applies the same effect to video games, offering up tilt-shift takes on Fallout: New Vegas, Bioshock Infinite, CyberPunk 2077, and Skyrim and more. We loved watching tiny street fights break out in Batman: Arkham Knight.
Most of the water slides we’ve ridden on are done in under 30 seconds, but it takes more than 4 minutes to complete a ride on this 3654-foot-long slide. Two passengers share an inner tube down the record-breaking water slide at Malaysia’s Sim Leisure Escape.
Here, kitty kitty! What’s that you say? Meow’ll be back? Get to the catnip? Littlebigdaddy redubbed a series of cat videos, replacing the the meows with an exaggerated impression of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The result is internet gold… at least until it gets really annoying.
Pilot Stefan Langer takes us on a fly-along in his single-seat glider, as he gets tugged along a runway and uses winds to carry his plane into the mountains of Austria. Around the 12-minute mark, he reaches the edge of the alpine range, eventually passing over the ski resorts of the Kitzsteinhorn and Hintertuxer glaciers.
Musician Leo Moracchioli has always had a thing for puppets, so it’s only natural that he’d expand his repertoire to include a song from a puppet show. His heavy metal cover of the theme from Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock will have you dancing your cares away and saving your worries for another day.
After seeing Studson Studios’ model of Howl’s Moving Castle, the guys from Nerdforge were inspired to build a similarly complex new cover for their basic black Xbox Series X. After building a form-fitting wood wrap for the game console, Martina used foam, junk, and toys to create the structure. Hopefully it won’t overheat.
