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.
Firemint, the developer behind Real Racing 2 on the iPhone/iPad, has a demo video to show off a neat multi-player trick using the Apple TV and the AirPlay mirroring feature for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2: 4-player split-screen.
Gizmodo friend and amazing filmmaker and photographer Vincent Laforet says that calling this time lapse video of Utah and Arizona "breathtaking" is an understatement. He adds "Holy cow". I agree with him completely, although I'd have added "Holy Jesus-on-a-pogo-stick-christ!"
Wow, now that's something you don't see everyday. Watch as a urology fellow at Southmead Hospital in Bristol peels a grape with the aid of a da Vinci surgical robot, which is normally used for things like heart valve repair. [News Scientist]
Commercials have become so effective at focusing on what us human people want that we can't stop watching them. Oh scantily clad women. Oh short attention spans. Dogs can join in the braindead fun now too, there's a commercial made with sounds only a dog can hear.
The first time I saw waves light up in beautiful colors as they crashed onto the beach I thought someone had slipped me some acid. It's real, though. Bioluminescent phytoplankton cause this spectacular light show, and wow, someone's surfing it.
This didn't take a lot of time. The obligatory Hitler gets angry about the iPhone 4S video is out. My favorite phrase: "I want people to know that I'm better than they are". It's funny because it's true.
Nope. No uncanny valley here—we see a few shots of actual, humanoid talking. No dead doll faces. Just pure bloody brilliant action. Did you see that motorcycle?! Well, Mr. Spielberg. I'm officially watching this. [MSN UK via /Film]
Our very own Sam Gibbs, news editor extraordinaire, made an appearance on Al Jazeera news today to discuss the "world's cheapest tablet," which will be sold in India to students for the subsidised price of £22, and later in shops for £38.
Gizmodo and their new UK branch are still excluded from Apple events because of a certain "kerfuffle" last year, which meant we weren't able to bring you hands-on photos and video. Not to worry though, as our new UK sibling TechRadar still graces Apple's good books. For now, anyway.
Nerves get to you when you have to follow on from the master of the reality distortion field. A potentially lacklustre product to launch under the colossal global attention only Apple manages to generate. Tim Cook certainly had his hands full. [Funny or Die]
This just blew my mind. Back in 1987 Apple made a video about a future computer that would have a touchscreen with a computerize assistant you could talk to. They were off in their prediction by only 18 days. Wow.
