Vaptur Delayed Recording for iOS

Vaptur is an eccentric video recording app for iOS devices. It can’t record videos in real-time. Instead, it allows you to record an event a few seconds after it happens, so it’s practically impossible to miss a moment.

The Jelly Baby Wave Machine

To promote the UK’s National STEM Centre, science teacher Alom Shaha shows how to build a device which demonstrates the principles of wave physics using some duct tape, kebab sticks and Jelly Babies. The Doctor would be so proud.

Bruno Smart Trash Can

The Bruno trash can has a hidden air pump at its base. It detects when you’re sweeping dirt into it and sucks them up into the trash bag. Its app lets you set a trash day reminder and alerts you when it’s low on trash bags.

Stellar Cave Drawings

Artist Julien Salaud creates amazingly intricate images of people, animals and abstract forms using phosphorescent thread as his medium. They come to life like drawings of constellations when lit with ultraviolet illumination.

Nissan Juke NISMO RSnow

Nissan’s NISMO division pits its ridiculously treaded-out JUKE RS against a group of husky dogs to see who can handle the extreme weather in Lapland best. We’re not sure who won the race, but we feel like winners just for watching.

Hole Punch Flipbooks

Bored at your desk? Got a hole punch, a notepad, and plenty of patience? Like artist Scott Blake, you too could create your own flipbook animation using these common office supplies. Too lazy for that? Just buy one that’s already made up.

Tom Hardy plays both Ronnie and Reggie Kray – English gangster twins who ruled East London’s crime scene in the ’50s and ’60s – in this adaptation of John Pearson’s critically-acclaimed book on the brothers’ lives.

Stan Lee’s Cameo School

Another Marvel flick, another Stan Lee cameo. In this Kevin Smith directed promo for Audi, the master of the Marvel universe teaches us how to nail these sort of roles with aplomb. Naturally, the clip itself has some great cameos.

Sports Reporter vs. Ghost Pepper

Back in 2007, while ESPN2 was covering an NMSU football game it sent reporter Rob Stone to the university’s chili farm. For some reason he took a big bite of a bhut jolokia, right after he’s told that it’s the world’s hottest pepper...

booq Cobra Squeeze Backpack

Sporting a curvy shell made from water-repelling fabric, the Cobra Squeeze can hold 15? laptops, and has nooks for all your gadgets and everyday carries. We especially love the terraced pockets inside which provide easy access to everything.

Lyrebird Mimics Construction Sounds

We’ve seen lyrebirds imitate the sound of mechanical objects and a toy laser gun. New Scientist shares this clip of a lyrebird in a South Australian zoo mimicking the sounds of hammers, saws, vehicles and even human voices.

Quadcopter Tricks

If you loved the twitchy remote-controlled helicopter, check out this equally amazing video by YouTuber quadmovr and his custom-built quadcopter. The tiny rotors make it sound like the toy itself is having fun. Woooo!

Attack on Titan (Trailer)

The English trailer for the live action adaptation of the hit manga and anime series Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan). We’re not too keen on the CGI titans, but at least they got Mikasa right. And that’s all that matters.
