Watch a Camera Dissolve in Acetone Fumes

Watch a Camera Dissolve in Acetone Fumes
Tune in and watch this video from YouTube channel Amazing Timelapse and watch an old Konica camera as it dissolves from acetone fumes. What’s amazing is that it’s not even in the acid itself, it’s just above it. 

Pennywise Living Dead Doll Makes: Float On

Pennywise Living Dead Doll Makes: Float On
I don’t expect to see the new Stephen King IT movie any time soon, because I don’t go watch scary movies at the theater. It’s not that I am afraid of the movie, I’m just afraid my wife will scream and dump an entire ocean of soda on the person next to us like she did when we saw House on Haunted Hill back in the ’90s.

Big Mouth Billy Bass Gets Dissected, and Still Refuses to Die
A Big Mouth Billy Bass is either the best gift in the world or the worst depending on your love of singing fish. Most people can’t stand having this singing fish on their wall. These people will be glad to see one sliced open, but not to fry it up in a pan.

That Dad Screaming in Terror is the Most Watched Twitch Clip Ever
Remember that JurassicJunkie dude that I talked about yesterday? The one who screamed literally like a little girl when his toddler daughter walked into the room whilst he was playing horror game Outlast 2? Well, the clip has been very popular.

Plush Nikon and Canon Lens Pillows: For Time-lapse Naps
Serious photography buffs can never have enough lenses. But lenses are expensive and fragile, so you certainly wouldn’t want to throwing them around – at least not until now. With these plush lens pillows, you can feel comfortable that no amount of tossing or squeezing will break them.

Guy Playing Creepy Horror Game Nearly Has a Heart Attack
Twitch user JurassicJunkie was streaming the creepy survival horror game Outlast 2 the other night, and all things seemed business as usual. Right up until a cute little blonde child sneaked up on him, and he literally screamed like a little girl.

Cooking with LEGO: Part of a Nutritious Brickfast

Cooking with LEGO: Part of a Nutritious Brickfast
What if food was made of LEGO? Watch as this guy makes some toast and eggs for breakfast, except his ingredients are all LEGO bricks. BrickBros Productions’ stop-motion animation is fun, but I don’t think it would be tasty.

Do Not Mess with the US Navy and Its Giant Railgun

Do Not Mess with the US Navy and Its Giant Railgun
For those unfamiliar with the concept of a railgun, it’s a dangerous weapon which uses a massive electrical pulse, instead of gunpowder or other chemical propellants to fire its ammo. The US Navy is showing off the latest iteration of its railgun, and it’s a beast.

Giant LEGO Space Shuttle Can Actually Fly

Giant LEGO Space Shuttle Can Actually Fly
Many fans fondly remember LEGO set #1682, the Space Shuttle Launch. It was released 27 years ago, and is a classic. Well, last month Adam Woodworth created a tiny drone version of LEGO’s shuttle that could fly indoors, which was cool enough, but now he has created a larger version that can fly like an RC plane.

Giant D20 Pouch: Diceception

Giant D20 Pouch: Diceception
Back in the day, we kept all our varied dice for playing D&D tossed inside one of those purple Crown Royal whiskey bags. We thought we were so cool, but that bag was as close as we got to adult beverages for many years.

Japan Loves Hamburger Straws

Japan Loves Hamburger Straws
Oh the Japanese, they love weird foodstuffs. The latest weird thing McDonald’s fans are up to in Japan is something called the Hamburger Straw. For some reason people buy those cheap McD’s burgers and them cram a straw through them.

Guy Solves Rubik’s Cube While Waterskiing, No Big Deal
I have a hard time solving a Rubik’s Cube while sitting on my couch at home, but some brainiacs can not only do it fast, but they can do it while being daredevils. Take, for instance, juggler and magician Joey Fratelli, who recently created a very cool POV video where he successfully solves a Rubik’s Cube while waterskiing across a lake.

Add IR Thermal Vision to Your Homebrew Projects

Add IR Thermal Vision to Your Homebrew Projects
Thermal cameras are pretty nifty devices. They let you see the heat signature of objects by capturing infrared light. There are off-the shelf thermal camera devices like the ones from FLIR, but they’re kind of pricey, and not particularly friendly to hacking into your own projects.

Google DeepMind Learns to Walk and Feels the Pain

Google DeepMind Learns to Walk and Feels the Pain
Google’s DeepMind artificial intelligence algorithms can be used to drive lots of different types of experiments, and now it’s recently been used to teach a CGI character to walk all on its own. However, this is the Internet, and that just can’t be good enough all on it’s own.

LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader LED Light is Pure Blocky Evil

LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader LED Light is Pure Blocky Evil
If you like Darth Vader and LEGO, this is the desk lamp for you. It looks like an oversize Vader minifig with a massive Lightsaber in his hand. While the lightsaber has a proper red blade, it uses white LEDs to shed light on your homework, LEGO builds, or whatever else needs to be enlightened by the power of the Dark Side.
