It doesn’t make the kind of sticky mess that Stretch Armstrong did, but it’s still fascinating to watch this bucket of weird golden goo as it runs between every blade of PressTube’s industrial shredder. At one point, the gunk that emerges looked kind of like brains.
It’s the video clip absolutely nobody was asking for. On a sunny July day, Jake Alewel decided to ski with his shirt off, then used video post-production software to stabilize the image using his right nipple as its center point. The result is equal parts hilarious and disturbing.
If you had any doubt that Japanese commercials are weird, tune into this ad spot for Domino’s Pizza, which includes a battle between rock and roll chickens and rapping pigs who represent four chicken-topped pizzas and four pork-topped ones. Picasso’s horse is just a bonus.
We don’t even know where to start with this ridiculous VR game, which drops you into an assembly line where they build cats. It’s your job to slap on eyeballs, tails, ears, noses, and even buttholes as quickly and accurately as you can. Coming 8/29/17 to HTC Vive.
To celebrate his millionth YouTube subscriber, Andrew Rea of Binging with Babish decided to give a tour of his kitchen, then replicated an SNL fan favorite, the 15-layer Taco Town taco we were first introduced to back in 2005. The cook starts at 5:21. Guacamolito sauce ftw!
Researchers from Tokyo University and Keio University designed a pair of robotic arms and hands that are controlled with the user’s legs and feet. Called MetaLimbs, the extra limbs can be modified with different “hands” and even provide haptic feedback. Think Doc Ock IRL.
We can’t believe it’s not butter! Unlike the guys at your state fair, chef Devwrat Anand Jategaonkar and his team used margarine as their clay. Their record-breaking sculpture of the Trimurti of Elephanta weighed over 3300 lb and measured more than 8 feet wide by 6 feet high.
It may look a little bit like a sideways stargate, but this robot is designed to carefully position itself around a Jenga stack, methodically pluck out a wooden block, and move it to the top of the stack. We’d be curious to see if it could play an entire game, but we’re guessing not.
(Gross) It’s an age old story of a girl falling in love with her one true soulmate – except in this case, her significant other just happens to be creepy alien creature. Oh Yeah Wow’s video for Millington’s jangly love song starts out silly, and ends like a horror film.
If you think Bob Ross should always be painting happy little trees, you might want to look away from Alexander Reben’s horrifying clip, in which they ran footage from The Joy of Painting through deep-learning audio and video processing software. The brown acid is bad.
Paradigm is a hilarious point-and-click adventure set in a post-apocalyptic world filled with mutants, including a pug with a mullet, a giant sloth, a human duck, and whatever its eponymous protagonist is supposed to be. PC & Mac demos available here. Drops 4/5/17.
One of the stranger cooking machines we’ve seen – this thing takes in grain, salt, and water, then applies heat and pressure to make rice crackers. The resulting explosion causes them to fly out of its mouth like jet-powered frisbees. Here’s a similar machine.
