A window into another world is what you often see on Gizmodo UK’s ‘Watch This’ page. Showing videos from other sites or made by our very hands, you can while the hours away by checking out awesome timelapses, drone footage, educational videos, viral laugh-a-minutes, or even trailers for upcoming movies and TV shows.
Don't worry, you can watch the video because no one was hurt in this freak accident. It's crazy, a youth hockey team in Slovakia was actually practicing in the hockey rink as the arena's roof came crashing down.
Are timelapse videos the new cat videos? Whatever they are, I'm digging Stephen Banks's 'lapse from home ground (Bridport, West Dorset, to be exact), which took him four months to shoot on his Nikon D7000.
If mankind can ever reconcile its determination to construct edifices with its lust for things exploding in slow motion, we will have unlocked our essence as a species—tête à tête with God herself. Until then, enjoy shit bustin'.
Colour me sceptical, but reports are coming out of China that a boy called Nong Youhui who has “bright blue eyes just like westerners”, can apparently see in the dark like a cat. He proved his prowess by taking a series of tests in near darkness, which had onlookers and reporters alike convinced. His eyes apparently reflect light like a cat’s do.
There are plenty of thoughtful ways in which people can document their year. But when Sam Morrison's father bet him £60 that he couldn't do a backflip every day of 2011, another approach was born. Yes: Sam Morrison recorded himself doing a backflip every single day of 2011.
The Nazi UFOs are landing first in Berlin on February 11, 2012. That is Iron Sky's premiere date at the Berlinale international film festival, the movie that is going to rock or suck. If they kill a lot of the Moon nazis, it will be good no matter how bad it is.
Generally when I blow through a pair of denim, I just toss it out and never think of it again. But apparently, that pair of old, shredded jeans can be ground down to a pulp and reconstituted into a fresh pair of trousers.
This video shows the navigation path of Costa Concordia, the ship that ran aground in Italy. Lots of things went wrong after it hit the first rock, but her path reveals that they may have been a steering system failure before that.
Readers, I know you're intelligent. You know the average person doesn't swallow eight spiders each year; that the Great Wall of China isn't visible from space, and that cracked knuckles don't result in arthritis. But some of your friends are probably dumb, so show them this.
We all seem to still be alive and well after that solar flare and radiation storm the Earth was bombarded with earlier in the week. In fact it just seems to have created some of the most amazingauroraphotos ever. But NASA’s latest sun video shows the awesome raw power of our star in an ethereal beauty like no other.
The mechanism inside a DSLR that converts your press of a button to a giant, detailed JPEG is concealed by a click and an instant. But in that instant lies some incredible engineering—watch it all happen super slowly.
We knew Dubai was growing uncontrollably, but this video demonstrates how absolutely crazy this growth has been. It covers eleven years, from 2000 to 2011. These sheiks and their real estate developers are completely nuts.
TEPCO officials attempted to peer inside the damaged #2 Fukushima reactor this week but couldn't discern the level of destruction on account of all the Gamma radiation present. Good thing they didn't lower Bruce Banner in there.
This guy, 87mcmahan87 on YouTube, is one ballsy son of a gun. Just watch this video. He recorded himself zooming around on his motorbike on a super skinny and snowy mountain ridge in Colorado. I almost died watching him balance, teeter and tease fate like a madman. If he slipped up, he would've come crashing down to his death.
