Not that everyone hasn’t already seen everything on the ‘net.
- Animal of the Month – Armadillo girdled lizard:
- YouTube – A History of Evil (5:40)
- “Animated Documentary-Mockumentary about Evil in western civilization from Ancient Greece to present day.”
- Nils Frederking‘s Brilliant Folding Furniture (0:52) [via]:
- garfield minus garfield
- “Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?”
- 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.
- THEBLOG WEEMADE
- “Sharing the artwork and creativity of kids. Please post to theblog weemade!”
- YouTube – Furniture Porn: The Movie (1:09)
- Chairs going at it.
- Marc Johns Art:
- 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.
- Ping Mag – Geospatial Technology: Mapping For Human Rights
- “Geospatial technologies using satellite imagery, internet-integrated mapping or GPS aren’t just for spyware – these days they are employed to detect, map and analyse human rights violations to help NGOs like Amnesty International. Using widely available tools such as Google Earth, Lars Bromley, director of the Geospatial Technologies and Human Rights Project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), has been digitally capturing atrocities against civilians in Darfur, Zimbabwe, North Korea, the Gaza Strip and Burma. He tells PingMag all about geospatial technologies.” – Go look at the pictures.
Last, but certainly not least
