Attenshun, Apple fans! Are you going to buy an Apple Watch? Shut up. I know you are. It is superfluous if you have an iPhone but fuck it—if Tim Cook can't live without it neither can you. YOU MUST GET IT. There is only one true, big, hairy but: Battery life will suck flea-infested monkey balls. Don't worry, I'm…
Sploid reader Xian Min Zhang sent us the latest time-lapse video of the construction of his latest building: A 57-floor 2-million-square-foot (180,000-square-meter) skyscraper fully built with energy-efficient, factory-produced Lego-like blocks. He claims that they are now building these at a record three floors per…
Human cannonballs are not launched from real cannons but special cannons that use either springs or compressed air. That doesn't mean it is not risky: They suffer accelerations of 7G and can fly over a distance of 193 feet (59 meters). In fact, "more than 30 human cannonballs have died during the performance of this…
Our friend Lieutenant Chris Nigus—Weapons Training Officer with the Strike-Fighter Squadron VFA-27 Royal Maces—sent us his new video, which has some truly spectacular shots that I have never seen before. Like the night shot footage above—we only had photos—or this cool landing footage from a carrier's deck camera.
Behold the amazing photography of Black Little. This outstanding series belong to his latest monograph, called Preservation. It opens today at the Kopeikin Gallery in Culver City, California. If you are in Los Angeles, go see it. If you are not that lucky, you can see how beautiful it looks here [NSFW!]
This is Salt, the newest yacht concept by Lujac Desautel. It is a sailboat. It has a clean design. It is very pretty. It is not my ideal sailboat—I like classic lines—but it is the kind of ship that I imagine Steve Jobs would have wanted instead of the horror he actually got. I would happily live in it forever.
Andy and Jean don't race like we did when we were kids. They put on their parachutes, run up abandoned buildings in South Africa, and then jump back down to the finish line.
Look at all these happy pups! LOOK AT THEM! It just makes me happy to look at those happy faces.
Excuse me for putting up another aerobatic shot this week, but I couldn't resist this image posted by the US Navy. Their position in the sky seems counterintuitive, yet it is perfectly normal for them.
Do you need more in life than pulled pork mac & cheese on a glazed doughnuts and nitroglycerin pills? No, no you fucking don't.
If this hadn't been published by the US Air Force, I would think it's a fake and those F-16s from their Thunderbird exhibition team weren't real but cloned and perfectly aligned in Photoshop to form a delta formation. It was shot at the Daytona International Speedway during a practice flight for the Daytona 500…
I love mochi—the Japanese cakes made from rice that gets smashed into a gooey, elastic paste. I like all shapes and types, savory or sweet, is one of my favorite things to eat. I know how it is made it but I never saw them doing them by hand. Crazy.
Unreal photo by U.S. Army Visual Information Specialist Jason Johnston: The soldier looks so casual doing his salute that, instead of jumping outside of the airplane, it looks like he is walking on air towards the bay of the C-130 Hercules—like a real world superhero.
Arati Prabhakar—director of the Pentagon's advanced research arm DARPA—has revealed a breakthrough achievement in machine mind control. Jan Scheuermann, a 55-year-old quadriplegic woman with electrodes in her brain, has been able to fly an F-35 fighter jet using "nothing but her thoughts."
Here's the Galactic Empire's answer to the RC Millennium Falcon, an RC quadcopter TIE Interceptor. I want to see two dozen of these flying in formation across the sky—or a chase behind the Falcon. With real lasers.
The US Coast Guard just tweeted this photo of a coyote running across ice, taken from one of its ships in the Boston Harbor, near Quincy. I imagine this is what would happen if humans were destroyed, civilization disappeared forever, and everything was cold and miserable—which sounds like Boston to me.
My first thought when I started to see Danny and the Wild Bunch—a short live action and animation film by Robert Rugan—was: "Is this some dumb Pixar imitation." I'm glad I kept watching, because I love when sugar, spice, and everything nice goes to hell.
