  • NYTimes Video: The Edible Martini (3:45)
    • “Chef/mad scientist Dave Arnold of the French Culinary Institute has figured out how to vacuum infuse a martini inside a cucumber.” – I have to admit I’ve watched this video over and over and over.

  • YouTube – Boston Dynamics Big Dog (3:29)
    • The quote from Core77 is priceless: You have to see this video–this %#&*@ robot simply won’t go down. Watch as the guy tries to kick it over at the 00:36 mark. Watch as it goes uphill and downhill in snow, traverses slippery ice, and leaps accurately over demarcated distances. The most disturbing thing is that once it loses its balance, like at the 1:29 mark, it frantically scrabbles to regain its footing with the grotesque urgency of a locomoting cockroach. This machine looks like it will carry out its mission at any cost.
