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.

Star Wars Campaign Ads

Star Wars Campaign Ads

With the presidential elections behind us, it’s time to turn to the hotly contested Palpatine and Calrissian race; yes, that’s really Billy Dee Williams trying to unite Jawas and Sandpeople.

Quantum of Solace: Combat

Quantum of Solace: Combat

This trailer for the upcoming Quantum of Solace game shows its COD4 lineage with many familiar moves: cover, dash and switch make a comeback, as well as our fave: blind fire.

LBP: Gradius Recreated

LBP: Gradius Recreated

It was bound to happen: PSN member RRR30000 has recreated the first level of Gradius in LBP; it’s fully playable and includes an amazingly detailed (and dangerous) boss at the end.

Short Film: Digital Human

Short Film: Digital Human

This isn’t the first thousands of photos film we’ve featured, but Micah Spears’ Digital Human focuses on the pervasive nature of tech in our lives; the NYC street scenes are particularly telling.

MDS Robot

MDS Robot

Developed by MIT and UMass students, the Mobile Dextrous Social (MDS) Robot is now available for sale. It can manipulate objects, as well as interact verbally and with facial expressions.

Mario Bros. Gypsy Jazz

Mario Bros. Gypsy Jazz

Chicago-based web dev and journalist Adrian Holovaty is also a skilled guitarist; check out this awesome gypsy jazz video with him playing the Super Mario Bros. 2 theme. Thanks, Jerry!

Angels & Demons

Angels & Demons

Da Vinci Code fans should check out this teaser for Angels & Demons, which follows Tom Hanks to the vatican; it blends the Illuminati, a Papal Conclave for a new pope and stolen antimatter.

John Williams A Capella

John Williams A Capella

Above is a goofy lip-synched a capella video by Corey Vidal, done to John William themes including Star Wars and Indiana Jones; it was done with the original singers’ blessing.

Mecha Costume

Mecha Costume

We’ve personally dressed as a skeleton, a ghost and a pumpkin for Halloween, but this mecha costume is just plain awesome. The kid wanted to be a robot, and his dad absolutely delivered.

Video: The Gloaming

Video: The Gloaming

The Gloaming is an atmospheric and creepy short that makes us seriously reconsider long nights at the office; it’s directed by USC student Andrew Huang and stars Randall Rickert.

Video: Red Bull Rampage

Video: Red Bull Rampage

After a three year hiatus, Red Bull Rampage is back, and we found the freeride mountain biking footage above as exhilirating as ever. It’s held at Zion National Park in Utah.

Prince of Persia, 1985

Prince of Persia, 1985

Original Prince of Persia fans are in for a treat: this recently uncovered video from 1985 shows creator Jordan Mechner’s little brother serving as an animation reference for the game.

Video: LEGO Minigun

Video: LEGO Minigun

While some LEGO replicas just look cool, this double-barreled Minigun promises to annihilate the competition at the next cubicle battle with a firing rate of 58 rubber bands per second.

Teaser: Splatterhouse

Teaser: Splatterhouse

No, this isn’t the latest Saw trailer; Splatterhouse is a remake of a classic 1988 Namco beat ’em up and will be available mid-2009. The gameplay has a long way to go, but we dig the cinematic.

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

We’re man enough to confess our man crushes, but this Guitar Hero: World Tour ad is almost too much; it’s got Tony Hawk, Michael Phelps, A-Rod and Kobe doing Risky Business in their skivvies.

Italian Police LP560

Italian Police LP560

Lamborghini has gifted a brand new Gallardo LP560 to Italy’s State Police; with a 0-60 time of 3.7s and a top speed of 203 mph, the mere sight of one will slow speeders down. Thanks, Verto!

Video: Duff Beer

Video: Duff Beer

Here’s to you, Barney: although it seems to be available only in Europe, iFoods.tv’s Niall Harbison gives a glowing video review of Duff Beer above; it’s brewed in Belgium.

Video: Modded Wall-E

Video: Modded Wall-E

We’re robo-crushin’ on DJ Sures’ modded Wall-E: he takes Disney’s cheap $40 single-motor version and gives it multiple servos and a freakin’ personality, all with only 7 hours of work.

Video: MB SLR 722 GT

Video: MB SLR 722 GT

There’s nothin like a supercharged MB SLR 722 GT toolin’ around a track to get us all hot and bothered. Now, try watching EIGHT of these 5.5L V8 680 hp beasts at once: 0-60 in 3.3s, kiddos.

Video: Hipsters in Space

Video: Hipsters in Space

If bloggers, trendy chicks and art school students drive you nuts, Current TV’s Hipsters in Space is sweet, sweet retribution; it even features a hipster averse Dj Steve Aoki.
