Google Instant x Billy Joel

Google Instant x Billy Joel

The folks at URLesque use Google’s new Instant search technology to keep up with Billy Joel in “We Didn’t Start The Fire”. We wonder if Google Instant can keep up with rappers.

AC: Brotherhood Dev Diary #2

AC: Brotherhood Dev Diary #2

The Ubisoft crew still do their ridiculous hoodie gimmick, but they also share a lot of juicy details about Assassins Creed: Brotherhood, like the ability to summon your customized assassins.

Newspapers Are Still Useful

Newspapers Are Still Useful

The creators of the Newsday iOS app use a clever bit of anti-marketing to promote their app. Go on, guess – what can you do with paper newspapers that you can’t do with digital periodicals?

Dead Space 2 (Multiplayer Trailer)

Dead Space 2 (Multiplayer Trailer)

The sequel to one of the best horror games ever has a multiplayer mode. Play with or against your friends, either as engineers or the ghastly necromorphs. Left4Dead in space anyone?

Mario Turns 25

Mario Turns 25

On 9/13/1985, Super Mario Bros. was released in Japan, and the most famous video game character was born. Don’t forget the man behind the legend – Shigeru Miyamoto. Happy birthday Mario!

The Cat Organ

The Cat Organ

We’ve all heard of Keyboard Cat, but never seen a real Cat Keyboard. Played at an eco-festival for the Prince of Wales, at least the guy didn’t squeeze real cats in a crowd full of environmentalists.

Shark Cage Fail

Shark Cage Fail

Despite the fact that Patrick Walsh and Paul Damgaard were inside of a “protective” shark cage, the 2-ton, 15 foot-long Great White headed their way isn’t going to let that get in his way.

Southwest Time-Lapse

Southwest Time-Lapse

Photographer Dan Eckert shot this amazing reel of time-lapse imagery throughout California and Arizona, and it’s truly stunning. The more ambitious shots required Dan’s custom-built camera rigs.

Story Card Trick 2

Story Card Trick 2

Australian magician James Galea shares a simple story in mind-boggling fashion, seemingly making a pack of cards match his tale even though the deck has been shuffled and cut.

Tesla Coil Iron Man

Tesla Coil Iron Man

If you’re going to play with something as dangerous as a high-voltage Tesla coil, you’d better do it to some Black Sabbath – and wear chainmail, like the guys in Arc Attack! do.

Grum: Through the Night (Video)

Grum: Through the Night (Video)

If you like 80’s synth music, buddy cops, Jerry Bruckheimer, mullet-moustache combos and bromance, it’ll be worth your while to watch this goofy video from Grum. (Thanks Michael!)

Edmonton Jiffy Jeep

Edmonton Jiffy Jeep

How fast can you disassemble a Jeep? If you’re a member of this crack military team, you can do it damn fast. Actually, it takes them less than 2 minutes to take it apart and put it back together.

MINI Countryman: Flow

MINI Countryman: Flow

This commercial for MINI’s new sportster blew our minds with its incredible CG effects, seamlessly placing dozens of MINIs in situations which are physically impossible. Behind the scenes here.

Team Fortress 2 Rage

Team Fortress 2 Rage

(NSFW) If you play TF2, and run into a guy named ChoZo, you might hear just a little bit of swearing. If Tony Soprano and Tony Montana had a child, they’d name him ChoZo. (Thanks, Everyone!)

Extreme Baby Carrots

Extreme Baby Carrots

Maybe if some of those other vegetable farmers came up with a hilarious marketing campaign like the baby carrot guys, more kids would eat them. Bonus: extreme pterodactyl at 0:23.

Caprica: Season 1.5

Caprica: Season 1.5

(Spoiler Alert) The sometimes cheesy, frakkin’ good time is back, and new parts of the BSG mythos get filled in this time. More teasers here. Premieres 10/5, not 2011 as this trailer says.

Two-Minute Hobbit

Two-Minute Hobbit

If you don’t have the time to read – or wait for the upcoming Hobbit movies – the dudes from Brothers Grim and Grimy explain the little barefoot dude’s story in 1:55 flat. Dude. Did Hurley write this?

Baby Talk Show

Baby Talk Show

Gather round everyone, this baby has some things to say. She’s concerned about a lot of things, like rock n’ roll and the ozone layer. And what do you think of her table? Isn’t it a nice table?

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Tron Bonne

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Tron Bonne

Tron Bonne gets introduced in the most awesome trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 yet. Heroes and villains battle it out atop the S.H.I.E.L.D. Heli-Carrier in typically over-the-top fashion.

Human Pac-Man

Human Pac-Man

How about a little game of Pac-Man? Guillame Reymond latest stop-motion clip features 111 human pixels acting out the classic arcade game. The 2-minute short took about 4 hours to shoot.

Star Trek Theremin Theme

Star Trek Theremin Theme

There’s no better way to play the theme from Star Trek but on one of those squealy theremins. Actually, there is one better, geekier way: dressed in full Starfleet garb on the transporter deck.

HDR Video Demo

HDR Video Demo

We’ve all seen incredible photos shot using HDR (high dynamic range) techniques, but this cool video shows what happens when you shoot HDR video, using a pair of Canon 5D Mark II dSLRs.

Animated GIF Music Video

Animated GIF Music Video

(NSFW) At once hypnotic and annoying, Evan Roth’s video for Girl Talk’s Cache Rules Everything Around Me was made entirely from animated GIFs he found around the web. Nice Pixies sample too.

New! Film Camera

New! Film Camera

Digital camera too confusing to use? Don’t know what to do with all those buttons and settings? Tired of viewing your pictures on their small screen? Then try the new 35mm Film Camera!

Cats at IKEA

Cats at IKEA

Ever wonder what might happen if you let 100 cats run amok in an empty IKEA store? Yeah, us neither. But this is the Internet, and where there’s a will (and a cat) there’s a way.

Watermelon Slingshot (Epic Fail)

Watermelon Slingshot (Epic Fail)

In this teaser for the new season of The Amazing Race, a contestant makes a mockery of launching a watermelon out of a supersized slingshot. “Ouch” doesn’t even begin to describe it. (Thanks Jeremy!)

LEGO: NES Quiz

LEGO: NES Quiz

Ninjamoped (formerly known as Rymdreglage) are back with more chiptunes, video games and LEGO. Their latest stop-motion videos feature popular NES games recreated using LEGO.

Red Bull Stratos

Red Bull Stratos

This year, BASE jumper Felix Baumgartner will jump from the edge of space – 120,000 ft. – and reach supersonic speeds in free fall in an attempt to beat Joe Kittinger’s 102,800ft jump in 1960.

The Solo Adventures

The Solo Adventures

Daniel L. Smith’s short film won “Best Animation” from the Star Wars Fan Film Movie Challenge, and rightly so. We guarantee you’ll love the ending. Shame that it’s in anaglyphic 3D.

Halo: Reach – Deliver Hope (Ext.)

Halo: Reach – Deliver Hope (Ext.)

This extended cut is twice as long, with most of the added time spent on sweeping through the ground battle. It’s not twice as awesome as the first release, but it’s no less fun to watch either.

Train Near Misses

Train Near Misses

While the title gives it away, you’d have to have a heart of stone not to be scared by the footage in this video. Remember, making a train stop ain’t easy. Don’t be as careless as these fools.
