Foo Fighters countdown could mean next Sonic Highways

Foo Fighters countdown could mean next Sonic Highways

The countdown clock on the Foo Fighters' homepage isn't just readied for Halloween. On the contrary - it's set for 24 days from now, hitting zero at Midnight on the 20th of November. At that time, the band headed by Dave Growl could well release a new season of the HBO-centric documentary series Sonic Highways. The logo plate on the website indicates as much. On the other hand, this could be a place for the launch of an EP - the band recently recorded five songs in Austin, after all.

Shredder makes mincemeat of bulletproof glass

Shredder makes mincemeat of bulletproof glass

Many materials are impossibly durable and hard -- modern metals, carbon fiber, bulletproof glass. Trying to break or otherwise structurally compromise any of those things is not easy, hence their use in all sorts of applications, including security ones. If there's one thing humans are really good at, though, it's destroying stuff, rendering the seemingly indestructible into rubble. Bulletproof glass is no exception.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer 3 released in 4K and Music editions

The original "3rd" Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer (otherwise known as the first full-length trailer) has already garnered many millions of views in just over a day. Now Lucasfilm has decided to bestow upon us two new versions of the trailer - one without words, the other in full Ultra HD, aka glorious 4K resolution. These trailers show the same content as before - they're just better for one reason (far higher-definition) or the other (time to bask in the greatness of John Williams' score alone).

3M makes a 4th gold Delorean for Back to the Future day

Just three gold Deloreans were ever made of the model made famous by Back to the Future - now 3M wants to change that. To make a fourth model, in celebration of the date at which Marty and the Doc (and Jennifer) traveled forward in time to 2015, 3M is bringing out the products. As you're about to see, they've not changed the makeup of the metal, they've wrapped it all up. You'll see not only an eye-searing rendition of the Delorean, complete with tinted windows, you'll see it wrapped by a scientist!

Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer released in full

The first full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released to the public - not just a teaser, but a full, real-deal trailer this time.

LEGO safe has functional 3-number combo lock

When people aren't amazing us with virtual blocky creations in Minecraft, they're using real-world LEGO blocks to do the same. In this case, one crafty LEGO user has created a safe with a functional 3-number combination lock. The safe itself looks about 6 x 6 x 6 inches overall, but it's not the size that matters -- it's the lock, which the creator, Jason Allemann, shows off on video (available after the jump!).

Netflix’s first original movie now available for streaming

Netflix’s first original movie now available for streaming

Netflix has done big things to the television industry, and it’s poised to do even bigger things to the movie industry. We’ve known for many months that Netflix has feature film aspirations, some that involve launching movies on its service the same day they release in theaters. The movie industry has largely not been receptive to the company's plans, with some theaters going so far as to threaten boycotts, but that hasn’t stopped Netflix from plodding on.

Project puts real-time virtual emotions on your stoic face

In a demonstration of what is perhaps the freakiest technology ever, Stanford researchers have managed to take the facial expressions from one person's face and transplant them onto another person's face...in real time through video. Imagine that you're channeling your inner stoic, sitting without expression in a chair, but a live video feed of your face shows you smiling, singing, sticking out your tongue, or any number of other things.

Star Wars 7 trailer coming on Monday night, right here

The first big Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer will be released on Monday night at right around 8PM EST says a number of anonymous sources. Multiple sources, that is to say, adding up to a rumor that's nearly as good as the real deal. In addition to the first big trailer for the movie appearing on Monday, there'll be an "official one sheet" - that's the main movie poster - for The Force Awakens on Sunday morning. These bits and pieces will be different from previous releases which, in turn, were teaser posters and teaser trailers - they don't count!
