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.
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]

And they say electric cars don't go fast. A group of BYU engineering students have built an electric streamliner that peaked at speeds of 175 mph. With that quiet electric motor I'll bet the "whoosh" it makes is gorgeous.
Is anyone more associated with the old brick cell phone than Zack Morris? I don't think so. Watch that grey beige brick phone of his evolve from complete brick to... slightly less of a brick in Saved By The Bell.
Jonason Pauley, who looks like the spitting image of Toy Story's Andy, is making a re-make of Toy Story. Only it's the same exact movie except real toy versions of Woody, Buzz and the gang are used instead of Pixar's wizard CGI.
The original Cardboard Warfare? Three and a half minutes of pure paper kickass. Cardboard Warfare 2? Twenty-five minutes of beiged paper, boxed artillery, fly-like-paper planes, bizzaro world fun. It's the World War 2 to the original's World War I.
Amy Shackleton is a 25-year-old artist who paints without paint brushes. No, silly, it's not finger painting or graffiti or spilling paint and calling it a day, it's real masterpieces that look amazing. She uses squeeze bottles to make them.
I've never had this much fun reading the alphabet since I was a kid and finally conquered the L, M, N, O stretch of my ABCs. But this video is way cooler—the letters actually animates itself to represent a word it begins with. It's so goddamn clever.
