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.

Kimbo is a bulldog. He lives in Finca Bellavista, the Endor Moon-like tree village six miles from Golfo Dulce, Costa Rica. For humans and dogs alike, this is paradise on Earth. But how does Kimbo take a walk there? By zip-line.
Fancy yourself a real-time pseudo-Holodeck? Yeah, it's been my dream too, ever since I was a Next Generation-watching kid. Sony's kind of done it using a combination of PlayStation Move and projection mapping, plus a helping hand from lycra-clad actors.
You know what looks like a lot of fun? Dropping Soviet T-80 battle tanks from huge Soviet cargo planes, using both a parachute and retro-rockets to slow them down just before they land safely on Earth. Don't believe me? Watch.
