Huge Vortex Cannon

This video is of a large scale vortex cannon trying to do what the big, bad wolf could never do. Simple physics on a large scale, always a blast! (Pun Intended)

Large Vortex Cannon

World's Worst Carwash

This is hilarious! Demonstrates very well the power of water.

Crazy 3D Video Displayed On A German Building

555 KUBIK | facade projection | from urbanscreen on Vimeo.

I ran across this video on Engadget of a new 3D video process being projected on a building in Germany for an ever-growing crowd. Very cool stuff! Maybe we'll be seeing this type of advertising here in the states soon!

RC Formula 1 Car via Blackberry Storm

This is about the coolest thing I've seen in a long time! These guys made a program for their Blackberry Storm using the accelerometer data inside to drive their little RC racecar. They posted the video on Youtube and someone in the Formula 1 racing community saw the video and asked for them to consider running the program for a real F1 supercar!

This is a must watch!

ArcAttack Tesla Coil - Star Wars Imperial March

Here's a video of another huge tesla coil being used along with an audio digitizer to play the imperial march from Star Wars. The different tones and sounds are produced by changing the duration and power output of the electrical arcs that dissipate in the surrounding air. Very high voltage stuff!

Cool T-Mobile UK Commercial

Crazy. Now that's how you make a commercial. Apparently this was filmed at 11am on January 15th at Liverpool Street Station. Probably a pretty big budget and a logistical nightmare to get this one recorded.
