Neon Skateboard Tetris: Dangerous Stunts Involving EL Wire

September 23rd, 2009 by frankie23

This looks terribly dangerous, yet pretty damn awesome. I’m kinda amazed at the co-ordination that went into this. Plus, the balls it’d take to skateboard down hills in fucking San Francisco…

Giant Robot Spider

April 20th, 2009 by frankie23

This is a lovely way to start the week! Footage of a giant robot spider in the warehouse district of Yokohama, wandering around, spitting steam and water. The thing is apparently 40 feet tall, and as you can see, there’s at least three people riding on it’s back. I think I’m in love. Who wants to help give the inventor some more funds so we can bring one of these to Burning Man?

I don’t really have much clever to say about this one; it’s a fucking beautiful video, a delightful track, and it just makes me smile.

Doctor Who Theme Played With Tesla Coils

February 23rd, 2009 by frankie23

This is probably the coolest thing I’ve seen, or heard, more properly, all month. ArcAttack, a self-proclaimed “high tech musical collaborative”, perform the theme to Doctor Who using a pair of Tesla coils. This performance is from Chattacon 2009, which apparently is a southern sci-fi convention held in January. There’s some random trivia in with your awesome, eh? I’m just astounded I didn’t have a tesla category previous to this…
