There can be no denying that designer Guillaume Binard’s “Oceanwings” look slightly ridiculous. But with the promise of letting you fly underwater, they’re a strangely tempting prospect too.
The idea is that the winged wetsuit lets you glide effortlessly through the water, like a… well, like a fish, we guess. In fact, a video made by Jérôme Espla, below, does a good job of making that look like a reality. But the big question is: would you try it out?
Video. With the lights on, John V. Muntean's LEGO creations look like something a five-year-old would build. "Look, mummy, it's a horse!" But turn the lights off, shine a spotlight on these creations and suddenly their real raison d'être is revealed; intricate shadow designs that change as each mass of LEGO bricks is turned.
Video. None of us will probably never make it to the red planet, but if you want to get a feel for what Mars would sound like (or hear what it's like from inside an airlock), saddle up with this video from Cody's Lab. He drops a camera inside a vacuum chamber and then turns down the pressure to mimic what it's like on Mars. He actually makes it so that there's no air inside the chamber at all, which means that sound can't be created. It's pretty chilling to hear that sort of silence (even if we hear silence all the time).
