I hate optical illusions. They make me feel like there's a hole in my puny brain. This illusion, where two cigarettes — one big, one small — are actually the same freaking size is making my brain light on fire. HOW. HOW. HOW. [The Awesomer]
This blows my mind. There is brain juice flowing out of my ears. Chan Hwee Chong, an artist, only needs one pen to create beautiful pieces of art. On top of that, Chong never even lifts the pen from the paper. It's all done in one stroke.
I'll say this for Casio: It makes some incredibly bad-ass videos. To show off its G-Shock G9300 Mudman, Casio sent Cameron Zink and Kyle Strait to Virgin, Utah where they proceed to flip out on camera like you won't believe. The whole episode is positively stomach turning. But the very end? You're not going to believe it.
Since China has a ton of people making a ton of money these days, they're just spending it wildly. Like buying £1.5 million yachts that don't work. As the yacht was entering the water for the first time, it started sinking and eventually capsized.
This is perfectly even mix of completely adorable and completely frightening. Adorable, because, well, it's a baby being cute and infantile. Frightening because her mushy baby brain's already been transformed by an iPad.

The big bad truck in this video is missing a freaking wheel... but somehow still driving. I'm not kidding, the front left tire is just GONE. Disappeared. Non-existant. And yet the truck can even make turns! How in the? What in the? Huh? Watch.
A blurred image is the worst. And no matter how steady you think your hand is, it can be easy to ruin a shot. Luckily, Adobe's cooking up a Photoshop feature that'll automatically eliminate blur. You won't believe your eyes.
Somehow, someone in China's gotten their mitts on an iPhone 4S already. Or so this video claims. The brief vid, dug up by MacRumors, shows off some impressive benchmarking and Siri settings. It seems faster!
Motorola just sent us this pulse-raising video to drum up hype for an upcoming product that'll appear next Tuesday the 18th. Shame there's nary a glimpse of the actual product, unlike Samsung's Nexus Prime teaser. Please see us after class, Moto.
Can you imagine the devastation caused by a morning swig of the "Bay in a can" energy drink? Urban Outfitters would have to amp production of denim shorty-shorts to dangerous levels at the very least. [YouTube -- Thanks, Nick!]
Whenever I see a cockroach scampering around I don't even think, I just stomp the shit out of it. HOWEVAH. If I saw this freaking robot cockroach climbing my walls, I'd shriek and freak out like a little baby. This thing is seriously scary.
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.
