A window into another world is what you often see on Gizmodo UK’s ‘Watch This’ page.

It's Polish Independence Day, and like in any other country, the youngins love celebrating their country's liberty by destroying parts of it. "Youths" butted heads with (and threw things at) riot cops in Warsaw. Check out the view from above.
You'll have to go see the new Muppets movie to see it in its entirety (not that you need another reason) but here's a first look at Pixar's new Toy Story short Small Fry which finally gives us a look at what life is like for those crappy, and quickly forgotten, fast food toys.
So much for getting a good night's sleep tonight. Researchers at the Tokyo Metropolitan University have created this disturbing robot cat mask that's able to mimic the movements of the wearer's eyes and mouth using a non-contact interface to measure the movements of the muscles in their face.
What happens when you combine the female Siri (sorry UK Siri man), with an Australian electro-artist? Dubstep Siri of course! Listen and be amazed by the 'Massive Bass', and the somewhat reluctant sounding Siri. [YouTube via Gizmodo Australia]

A pillow to the face is a good way to silence the snorer you sleep with. Unless you're the snorer. In that case you'd probably prefer to share a bed with Jukusui-kun, a robot polar bear that doubles as an intelligent pillow, gently waking you by tickling your face so you'll roll onto your side.
