Birds can make some crazy noises, from mimicking sounds of their environment to singing repetitive patterns unique to their species. TED-Ed looks at the ways in which our fine feathered friends pick up their songs, and carry them on generation after generation.
Artist Cyril Bagnost presents a cool take on 3D acrylic illusion lamps, with whimsical low-poly designs cut precisely to the outline of the animal. The bulldog and panther are pretty sweet, but we also dig his Jeff Koons-inspired balloon dog. Lamps are powered via USB.
Whether or not you loved The Last Jedi, you’ve got to hand it to the effects departments for their work on the film. While we assumed the Vulptex (aka “crystal foxes”) were CGI, it turns out they built an amazing animatronic puppet for close-ups, then scanned it for digital use.
“There are generally no shark builds that can justify bottom tier.” TierZoo applies his eSports analysis on sharks, which have a couple of the most infamous builds in the real life meta. They’re proof that Blizzard is part of nature – they both take way too long to nerf OP stuff.
If you currently have or have ever had a cat, you’ll be able to relate to Gus Johnson’s video, in which he demonstrates one of the many ways in which our furry friends can be a-holes. He missed the part where kitty sits on your head and starts making biscuits on your eyelids.
It’s been a while since we posted a cat video here on The Awesomer, so this 10-minute supercut should more than make up for their absence, as we meet dozens of kitties to see what they’re up to after a dip into the old wacky weed. Most of them are just naturally high.
The animators from Rollin’ Wild envision what the world would be like if all animals were round and puffy, as if they were balloon floats in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. While they’re definitely silly looking, we’re glad there’s such a thing as natural selection.
