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.
With this imaginative fix, you can watch your camera fall to the earth with slightly less trepidation, secure in the knowledge that a trip to the grocery store and some everyday tools could make everything OK.
I seriously can't imagine any better use for Lego Minstorms than building a machine that can serve two types of Dutch beer, chilling them down to the perfect drinking temperature, opening the bottle and serving them. Can you? CAN YOU?

Google’s got a bit of a soft spot for Bletchly Park, known for being the British code-cracking institution of WWII.

Google’s put together a beautiful short film looking back on the pioneering work that paved the way for what we all rely on today.
