BBC video shows animals attacking in slow motion

BBC, as you may know, has a YouTube channel dedicated to videos about the outdoor world (ones posted exclusively online), and it’s called “Earth Unplugged”. On Wednesday, the network published a new video that slows time down, giving us an incredible look at animals as they attack. The video is in slow motion, and includes everything from an alligator punching out of the water to a praying mantis grabbing a cricket.

Veteran Disney animator Glen Keane shows how VR and art mix

Veteran Disney animator Glen Keane shows how VR and art mix

Glen Keane, son of Bil Keane, is an American animator who, among other things, is a Disney veteran who helped bring us movies like Aladdin and The Little Mermaid. In a beautiful video, Keane takes us through many things: he touches, briefly, on his own father's animation, then his art and what it means to him, his time at Disney, his process and more. He narrates the video with wonderful candor, but then takes it one step further and dons a VR mask.

Amazon’s offline Prime videos give Netflix a reason to worry

Amazon’s offline Prime videos give Netflix a reason to worry

When it comes to streaming movies and TV shows, Netflix is the name on most lips. The service is popular enough that, as with Google, one may invoke its name as a sort of general indication of one's intentions -- "Let's find a movie on Netflix or something" -- without necessarily intending to use its service. At the end of the day, it's convenience that counts for most people, and users will gravitate to the method of least resistance, whether it is Netflix or a different company entirely. Netflix is pretty simple to use, but it has one big limitation: you need Wi-Fi.

Weaponized frisbee sports four scalpels, isn’t for playing

Weaponized frisbee sports four scalpels, isn’t for playing

You have probably seen at least one of YouTube user Joerg Sprave’s videos at some point or another — he has a lot involving slingshots, only they’re usually fun like the time when he used an entire christmas tree as ammo. Over the weekend he dropped a new video, but this one doesn't involve slingshots; rather, he took an ordinary frisbee and, using four scalpels attached to the plastic, turned it into a fascinating flying disc of unmitigated horror wonder.

Bugatti’s Veyron replacement gets spine-tinglingly vocal

Bugatti’s Veyron replacement gets spine-tinglingly vocal

Bugatti may have put the Veyron out to pasture, but the supercar company hasn't been idle, with a new video teasing its upcoming model and in particular how it will sound. The short video contains the usual hyperbole about "the endless hunt for speed" and how your (insanely expensive) Bugatti will push you "forward by pure instinct," but more importantly it gives us a brief snippet of the sort of aural pleasure delivered by what's expected to be an 8.0-liter W-16 engine.

Vine app might soon offer soundtrack feature

Vine app might soon offer soundtrack feature

Vine is that wonderful service filled with footage that loops like GIFs but that has the quality of an ordinary video, and a new apparent tease that has surfaced hints that, just maybe, those looping videos will one day include soundtracks added directly within the Vine app. The speculation follows a Vine video published earlier this afternoon by Twitter's United Kingdom Director Bruce Daisley -- it is simply titled "Test", and though it is an uninteresting video it has a very interesting addition.

Watch: man surfs with dirt bike, rides across ocean

If you thought GoPro's video of a man flying like a superhero down a mountain and through a split rock was impressive, DC's new video will blow your mind. Titled 'Pipe Dream', the video shows the successful conclusion of one man's two-year pursuit: to surf with his dirt bike. He took to the waves in full motocross getup, helmet and all. He also blasted his way over the ocean on the motor bike, dumbfounding a few people in the process. Full video after the jump!

Red hot nickel ball sends foam block into color chaos

Red hot nickel ball sends foam block into color chaos

That red hot nickel ball is still burning its way through all sorts of substances -- except for hockey pucks, that is -- and the latest item subjected to its hellish super-heated self is a block of craft foam...the kind you might find poked full of fake flowers. While the steam and sparks and other things we've seen from past burning sessions were intriguing, this latest one is downright fascinating, and a bit unexpected -- the hot nickel ball sends the foam block into chaotic colors.

Firefighter’s body cam shows first-person fire fighting

Firefighter’s body cam shows first-person fire fighting

Body cams have quickly become associated with police officers, but they're not the only ones wearing the little cameras. There are consumer versions designed for recording the important moments in your life, and other occupations are taking advantage of them, too -- firefighters being among them. The San Bernardino County Fire Department has begun using them, at least in certain cases, and late last week it published footage from one of those cameras on its YouTube page. In it we get to see what it looks like when fighting a raging inferno from a firefighter’s point of view.
