Mercedes claims that its new fuel cell technology results in vehicles with no omissions, so it's as if they're invisible to the environment. And to drive this fact home, literally, they created a vehicle that was invisible to everything else.
Under the right conditions, the cameras in your smartphone can shoot excellent video. Unfortunately, if the light is poor or there's a lot of background noise or you've got shaky hands, the quality is going to drop significantly. Here's a clever little rig that will help your video shine.
Prepare to be impressed. This tiny one-year-old dude plays the drums like a pro; as if it’s nothing -- it’s incredible. And no, I don’t mean kiddie drums. I mean a proper full-sized drum kit that’s way bigger than he is. If this little guy doesn’t have a music career by the time he’s 10, I’ll be amazed.
This video was posted over a year ago, but it's too trippy not to share. The concept is simple. Mount a camera to a electric drill and see what happens. What you get is a completely abstracted image of the world. Wait for the night-shooting part, it gets even better.
Sure, it's an ad for a Portland-based restaurant called Bamboo Sushi, but instead of promoting the establishment, it uses beautifully filmed hand-crafted miniatures to bring attention to the issues with current fishing practices that are damaging the world's fish stocks.

A group of 850 mattress-equipped people have set a new world record for the human-attached mattress domino effect. The New Orleans-based stunt took a full nine minutes for all the dominos to topple, but beat out the previous record holders in Spain with just 526 bedders.
Planning to steal a Boeing 737 or an Airbus A320? Pranas Drulis at the Baltic Aviation Academy has got you covered: these videos show how to start up these planes from cold to ready to taxi, step by step.
When I think of flying robots, music doesn’t spring forth into my mind – it’s more rise-of-the-machines-type stuff sadly. Then again I don’t work in a robotics lab at the University of Pennsylvania – but I wish I did. The classic theme tune re-imagined is simply awesome.
A set of massive Olympic rings began their journey on the Thames yesterday showing that the run up to London 2012 is well and truly in-gear. London’s historic Tower Bridge even had to open to let them through – a sight rarely seen.
Prometheus, the film that started off life as an Alien prequel, but has since morphed into its own beast, is set for a June 1st launch in the UK. This fake TED2023 talk introduces us to Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland talking cyborgs and Gods, giving us a taste of what’s to come.
