‘Jaw Crusher’ turns big chunks of granite into dust

Big machines span the globe, tasked with doing things that would otherwise take humans long periods of time to achieve. One such machine is called the "Jaw Crusher", and it exists to turn big chunks of granite into much smaller pieces of granite -- even dust, which is produced to satisfactory degrees. What would you do with a bunch of granite gravel? Probably not much. But watching it get pulverized is oddly enjoyable.

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.
