Awesome Solar System Video Based on Incredible Space Art

 

This original picture was made by space artist licoti. This is only a few slices I took from the original image, which is pretty awesome looking and it's 30,000 pixels wide. Holy crap that's huge. You can go here and download it (17.4 MB). 

This video was made by Sylvafilm and took licoti's awesome image to a new video level.

Doctor Laser: A Documentary about Freakin' Lasers and Holographics

Have 20 minutes to spare? Sure you do! Sit back and watch this cool documentary about one of the last "practitioners of the holographic arts." I want to learn this trade.

"Jason Sapan, as his birth certificate calls him, is sort of like a laser Doc Brown, and his cluttered New York studio-laboratory (replete with devoted interns) feels something like a time machine, a living ode to a seemingly obsolete art."

Have things to Shoot to Bits? Build Yourself a M134 Airsoft MiniGun

So, you can go to [ this site ] and begin your journey into the fine arts of airsoft gun building. Watch this video below of this thing completely destroying whatever it shoots at. Pretty gnarly. 6000 rounds per minute gnarly.

"Solenoid valve regulates the flow of gas (CO2). Maximum pressure is 14 Bars (203PSI). Remote control system allows to operating without any additional cables. Battery powered with two 12V aku. Magazine hold 16 000 BBs. This means that you can still shoot for a long time. Large weight prevents wearing. But if you are strong you can try. A perfect place to install is a car or a defensive position."

My ONLY issue with this is that the barrel doesn't rotate. I do find that to be a huge part of the awesomeness that is the minigun. Either way, this thing is bad ass.

From the "I'd drive that" category, check out this new Porche 918. A pretty nice looking whip, indeed. Set in a carbon fibre shell, this beast sports and unconfirmed 708bhp and get this... LCD screens for in dash rearview mirrors. That's some tech right there. Apparently, the prototype cost over $20 Million to build.

35 Space Helmet Reflections that are "Off the Earth"

How many times have you seen a human face jammed inside a space helmet? That's right... 35. Here is a nice compilation of movie images that have been found within the digital construct that we call "the internets." I can only imagine that you WILL enjoy this fine matrix of intergalactic imagery.

Triangles are pretty great.. Just ask Zelda, she loves them. These nifty postcards are from the brain of TheFunctionalFox and I must say, good show ole' chap, these are delightfully acute. Get it? Ugh.. Triangle humor is tough... I know.
