Voice Activated R2D2

Voice Activated R2D2

Short of becoming a Jedi, this voice-activated R2D2 does it all; it’ll respond to simple commands, act as a room sentry and even play tag using an infrared sensor to detect motion.

Trailer: Bitch Slap

Trailer: Bitch Slap

NSFW: forget about political correctness pretenses with Bitch Slap, which debuted at this year’s Comic Con; heavily bosomed babes aside, the cinematography looks pretty sweet.

Prince of Persia Trailers

Prince of Persia Trailers

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a trio of Prince of Persia trailers up; suffice to say, they’re all good, but our favorite is the story trailer, which although lengthy at 5 minutes is absolutely gorgeous.

Latest Trailer: Harry Potter

Latest Trailer: Harry Potter

The “real” trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is above; a bit more expository and light-hearted than the international one, it also squeezes in some new, tantalizing scenes.

Latest Trailer: Watchmen

Latest Trailer: Watchmen

While the previous trailer was more artsy, this theatrical Watchmen trailer establishes the storyline and is narrated by Rorschach, with help from Silk Spectre and Doctor Manhattan.

Video: Squeeze Me

Video: Squeeze Me

Arguably the coolest use of flip books we’ve ever seen, this imaginative music video for Kraak and Smaak’s Squeeze Me is directed by Dutch duo Superelectric and Andre Maat.

Gameplay: Bionic Commando

Gameplay: Bionic Commando

This trailer for Bionic Commando eschews cinematics and exposition for good ol’ fashioned gameplay; we’re positively stoked at how fast-paced and action-packed this game looks.

Lopsided Robot Battle

Lopsided Robot Battle

Simultaneously cruel but a bit funny, this lopsided battle pits ALCNON, a 1.3 meter, 16 kg robot against a much smaller opponent; it’s like David vs. Goliath, minus the slingshot.

Teaser: 2012

Teaser: 2012

Day After Tomorrow’s Roland Emmerich is ending the world yet again with 2012; this teaser with some seriously screwed monks above really is just that: a teaser. Click here for plot spoilers!

Video: Grendizer Returns

Video: Grendizer Returns

With spinning saws aplenty, Grendizer is at the top of our awesome robots list: directed by Paolo Lamanna, the action-packed video above also has Cinema 4D outtakes at the end.

Left 4 Dead: Minigun

Left 4 Dead: Minigun

As if we hadn’t been sold long, long ago on Left 4 Dead, this minigun gameplay video is icing on the cake. Bloody, bloody icing with lots of carnage, but tasty icing nonetheless.

LBP x Mirror’s Edge

LBP x Mirror’s Edge

With Mirror’s Edge out, players may experience a strange feeling of deja vu with this LBP mashup video; totalitarian governments are no match for the cutest runners on earth.

Video: Stop Motion London

Video: Stop Motion London

Cued to Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger and Around The World, this stop motion video perfectly illustrates London’s frenetic pace. Trip across the pond, anyone?

Video: Evolution of Tech

Video: Evolution of Tech

Created for Saturn (think Best Buy for Germans), Evolution of Technology mixes robots and biology to explain survival of the fittest; apparently, we all evolve into hot, blue-skinned babes.

Street Fighter II: The Best

Street Fighter II: The Best

Joe Esposito crooning You’re The Best to a Street Fighter II gameplay montage just seems transcendent; we can only hope the Capcom gods deign to include this in-game one day.

AUR, Robot Lamp & Actor

AUR, Robot Lamp & Actor

No, these actors haven’t gone mad: the desk lamp above is AUR, an MIT robot that uses a hybrid control system that lets it react to and interact with on-stage performers.

Video: Parkour Can Throwing

Video: Parkour Can Throwing

This video puts our office hoops game to shame: watch as several French kids put a Parkour twist on recycling cans, with amazing long-distance kicks and behind the back tosses.

Matrix on Windows

Matrix on Windows

Neo should be happy the Matrix didn’t run on Windows, or he’d be subjected to the scenes in this hilarious video; it’s filled with Microsoft in-jokes, including the dreaded BSOD.

MotorStorm: Features Trailer

MotorStorm: Features Trailer

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is shaping up to be an awesome party game; this trailer shows off 4-player split screen, wicked avatar customization and hair-singeing jumps over lava.

Eve: Quantum Rise

Eve: Quantum Rise

This Eve Online trailer for the Quantum Rise expansion lays it on thick, with “breaking news” of a surprise invasion. The real star of the show: enhanced stability and gameplay tweaks.

levelHead

levelHead

levelHead isn’t new, but this crisp Vimeo video does a much better job at showing off the spatial memory game; it uses a Sony Eyetoy, solid plastic cubes and runs on Ubuntu and Debian.

Video: White & Nerdy

Video: White & Nerdy

Being 80s/90s kids, we’re happy to see Weird Al at it again with White & Nerdy; this music video’s been out for a little while but we like the way it speaks to nerds of all colors (and species).

Mega Man Stop-Motion

Mega Man Stop-Motion

Made with AfterEffects in only 20 hours, this Mega Man stop motion video by Nicolas Menard features paper cutters of death, dangerous Oreos and a hat tip to classic Nintendo controllers.

Akira, American Style

Akira, American Style

With a Warner Bros live-action Akira due in 2009, American Akira is both hilarious and terrifying, similar to what might happen if Michael Bay made a Transformers movie. Oh, wait…

Video: Tokyo Reality

Video: Tokyo Reality

Although we liked Reverie, we prefer Akihabara News’ use of the EOS 5D MKII in Tokyo Reality for its multiple “day in the life” shots; if you like people watching, this is your video.

Guitar Hero: Heidi Klum

Guitar Hero: Heidi Klum

If the last Guitar Hero: World Tour trailer was a bit too testosterone-loaded, this video with a smokin’ Heidi Klum should restore balance to the force; not responsible for dropped jaws.

Gameplay: Demigod

Gameplay: Demigod

GPG’s Demigod isn’t an easy game to define–an RTS version of Diablo? A DotA descendant? Either way, it looks pretty fantastic from the trailer above; expect it to arrive February 2009.

Short Film: Khoda

Short Film: Khoda

Reza Dolatabadi’s Khoda looks rotoscoped, but it’s actually 6,000 individual paintings created over the course of two years and compiled into the five minute “psychological thriller” above.

Repo! The Genetic Opera

Repo! The Genetic Opera

Repo! The Genetic Opera has all the makings of a cult classic: it’s a rock opera-musical with human organ repo-men, 64 songs and Paris Hilton; it hits select US theaters November 7.

Wii Music: Run-D.M.C.

Wii Music: Run-D.M.C.

25 years after the original Run-D.M.C., the Reverend shows he’s still got it; this time, he’s beatboxing to Beethoven with his two sons on Wii Music: “Follow the note and rock it out!”

Video: Circular Painting

Video: Circular Painting

Made for the Discovery Channel, this video is a funky time-lapse animation of eight artists expressing the fate of the world on a circular wall in Cape Town, South Africa in July 2008.
