Human evolution explained in the cutest two-minute animation

In a perfect world—or at least in the perfect world I have in my mind—kids would learn about chemistry, history, or human evolution theory through claymation short films as cute and clever as this one. Actually, adults would learn like this too. Everything could use more claymation. » 8/21/15 5:27pm 8/21/15 5:27pm

This cool Christmas tale features love, spaceships, and scary meteors 

Anomaly is an unusual Christmas tale, set in the late 60’s, which tells the story of a group of people connected by the same astronomical event: A frightening meteor that will enter and exit the atmosphere. It is weird and sad and hopeful and just really interesting to watch. » 8/19/15 5:42pm 8/19/15 5:42pm

The crazy simulator where pilots learn how to fly the F-35

How do pilots learn how to fly a fighter jet that cost a trillion dollars to develop (or a $100 million a pop to make)? By hopping in a total bad ass simulator that mimics everything about the F-35 in basically the sickest video game ever. The pilots in the simulator look like they’re flying some space age ship, with… » 8/17/15 5:31pm 8/17/15 5:31pm

Cool time-lapse of a US aircraft carrier crossing the new Suez Canal for the first time

Watch the USS Theodore Roosevelt navigate through the new Suez Canal with all of its fighter jets on deck. It’s super cool because the aircraft carrier is so big and the water of the canal is so calm that it feels like the Earth is moving around the land formation that is the USS Theodore Roosevelt. » 8/13/15 4:25pm 8/13/15 4:25pm

This video of a Soyuz flight to the ISS is simply outstanding

This is so cool. Stitched together from both old and new clips of Soyuz launch footage over the years, this video shows what a Soyuz flight from Earth to the International Space Station looks like. And it’s absolutely incredible. You get to see the launch, approach and how it docks to the ISS from multiple angles. » 8/06/15 6:45pm 8/06/15 6:45pm

Watch the Moon cross the face of the Earth in this incredible video

Here’s an absolutely stunning video that shows our Moon fly by and cross the face of our Earth. The detail is incredible, the size difference is dramatic, and it’s just lovely to see the phenomenon happen from outside Earth. We see the Moon streak the sky every night, this is what it looks like from space. » 8/05/15 5:22pm 8/05/15 5:22pm

Breaking Bad expertly recreated with GTA V graphics is just fantastic

That’s it. GTA V is such an amazing world that it can be used to create anything. Let’s make movies and full seasons of TV shows using just GTA V graphics because this is just stunning. Here is a Breaking Bad tribute done completely with GTA V and it sums up a decent amount of the series pretty well. » 5/16/15 5:04pm 5/16/15 5:04pm

Man pretending to be a robot looks like a robot pretending to be a man

Dancer Madd Chadd is so, so good at doing the robot that he actually looks more like a frighteningly realistic robot pretending to be a human than a human dancing like a robot. In this latest video, he's sitting down and attempting to eat a sandwich like a robot would and it looks absolutely perfect. » 2/20/15 7:59am 2/20/15 7:59am

Fascinating photos reveal how they built the SR-71 Blackbird

Built and designed in the 1960s after the A-12 Oxcart, the SR-71 Blackbird is still the fastest, most vanguardist air-breathing airplane in the history of aviation. These once classified photos reveal how Lockheed built both birds in secret, in California. They look taken at the Rebel base in Hoth. » 2/07/15 3:41pm 2/07/15 3:41pm

New gorgeous Guardians of the Galaxy concept art revealed

Olivier Pron was the lede matte painter for Guardians of the Galaxy. His concepts for the movie sets—and other movies and personal projects—are extremely cool. I love the Chris Foss-iness of Xandar, the home planet of the Nova Corps. The rest of his work is equally great. I wish I could roam his worlds with an Oculus… » 1/09/15 7:00am 1/09/15 7:00am

The Life Aquatic trailer in the style of Kubrick's The Shining

It's hard to turn an optimistic movie as full of light and absurd humor as Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou into a dark horror movie that tells the story of a man turned mad-man in the style of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining—but Iván Róbert did it.

8-bit game version of The Matrix is a better movie than its sequels

Being better than a Matrix sequel is not saying much, I know. But after recently re-watching the whole trilogy (and enjoying it!), it's still nuts how much better the first one was. The action sequences in the sequels may have been more insane but this 8-bit game version of The Matrix brings back more fond memories… » 9/24/14 7:30am 9/24/14 7:30am

Watching the iPhone 6 Plus being pulverized by a bullet is so satisfying

RatedRR continues with its six days of torture for the iPhone 6 Plus. And being RatedRR, at one point they had to take out the guns and shoot at it. And being a dedicated hater of gigantic phones like this or the Samsung Note, it's a real pleasure to watch it being pulverized by a 50 cal bullet. » 9/23/14 7:00am 9/23/14 7:00am

This video shows how pretty much everything in Game of Thrones is fake

By now, we know that Game of Thrones uses a heavy VFX hand when it comes to building the world of Westeros but it's still amazing how real their visual effects can make it look. That's because pretty much everything is fake. Seriously. Anything far off in the distance or people standing around or flags waving have all… » 7/08/14 7:51pm 7/08/14 7:51pm
