Disproportionately big eyes, a sailor’s outfit, colorful hair… these are but a few of the trademark characteristics of girls in anime. Over at MakeGirlsMoe, computer learning algorithms can generate a nearly infinite set of anime characters, as seen in the video here.
Check out this crazy invention – the awesomely named “Multi Headed Nut Wizard.” It’s a garden tool designed for easily picking up fallen tree nuts and small fruit on the ground, even when they’re scattered in leaves. It appears to be an amped-up version of this tool.
Ari Weinkle presents a fantastically strange and wonderful computer animated short in which human figures are made of digital noodles. The director says they represent the transformation of stress and anxiety into creative catharsis, but all we know is we’re hungry for spaghetti now.
Barnaby Dixon gave his amazing bug puppet a somewhat creepy, yet awesome upgrade – a tiny screen that lets him display his own face on the bug’s head. He wears a GoPro camera while operating the puppet to bring even more life to his already dynamic puppet creation.
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.
