The Best Action Camera: Q2 2014 Edition

You can’t just do something dangerous and insane these days without filming it for posterity. And while action cameras let us relieve these life-highlights over and over, they aren’t all created equal. We decided to see for ourselves which one could handle your extreme adventures best.

Earth 2.0: What We Know About The First Earth-Sized Planet In A Habitable Zone

When you’re looking for alien life, the best place to look is somewhere like Earth; the only place we know of that life exists. Kepler-186f, the first Earth-sized planet to be found in the habitable zone of a star, is the best bet we’ve ever found.

Ford Built A Mustang On Top Of The Empire State Building Last Night

It’s been 50 years since Ford built the world-renowned 1965 Mustang and placed it high above Manhattan on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Last night, Ford came back with a bigger, yellower, all around more complicated car from 2015 and decided to recreate the famous stunt as a 50-year homage — only this time, they did it in the snow and over the course of just five hours.

Oreo Fed Me Strange Cookie-Concocted Recipes And I Didn't Die

Traditionally, you’d eat an Oreo straight of the box, or sometimes very recently dipped in a glass of milk. The people at Oreo felt the need to show that their biscuit is more diverse than that, however, so they put it in a bunch of weird recipes and made me eat the result in order to prove something about the future. Gizmodo tried these foods so you don’t have to.

The Man Who Collects The World's Rarest Architectural Artifacts

For Evan Blum, it started as a hobby when he was young. His father, an architect specializing in reuse, exposed him to the world of architectural antiques — and it wasn’t long before Evan’s own collection had outgrown the space he lived in. Today, 41 years later, it’s how he makes his living.

Shocking Image Of Kiev's Independence Square Before And After The Riots

Kiev grows more violent every day as Ukrainians riot against its authoritarian government. Witnessing the transformation through media outlets could never sum up the amount of devastation conveyed in this single image of the city’s Independence Square.

The New Museum's Soviet Spaceship Is A Wasted Opportunity

Back in 1963, a Czech sci-fi film called Ikarie XB-1 told an epic story — set 200 years in the future — of an eponymous spaceship that went in search of a mysterious, unknown planet. This month, the fateful spacecraft has been recreated on the top floor of NYC’s New Museum.

A Peek Inside The Super-Sheds Where NYC Stores Its Mountains Of Salt

The US northeast has been buckling under this year’s winter weather, in part because America is running out of road salt. Gizmodo wanted to see what the country is dealing with ourselves, so we visited three of the biggest salt sheds NYC’s five boroughs have to offer.

A Walk Though NYC's Insane Super Bowl Boulevard

The stretch of Broadway that runs through Midtown Manhattan is always an overwhelming sensory experience — but, this week, it’s even more intense.

An Entire Apartment Built Out Of Five Shipping Containers

In Brooklyn, New York, a married couple built an entire apartment out of five shipping containers for $US50,000. The home is built on a lot that’s only 6m wide and 12m deep. You can watch a video about its construction here.

Tour The Hidden Art Gallery On The High Line's Last Unfinished Stretch

It’s easy to forget that beyond the tourist- and greenery-covered High Line, there are still 300 yards of old, rusting train track. This last patch of decaying NYC railway will soon be turned into the final stretch of the super-successful park — but for now, they’re home to a little-known outdoor gallery.

Brooks Cambium Review: Never Break In A Bike Saddle Again

Ask any cyclist: Racing saddles are uncomfortable. Especially for the first few months, when they feel like pieces of wood. But Brooks, the venerable British saddle maker, wants to change that with Cambium, a new saddle that arrives already broken in — without any of the normal torture. Your more sensitive parts (read: your crotch) will thank you.
