Ever since Apple dropped its latest MacBook Pro with a cool but mostly unnecessary Touch Bar, programmers have been jumping at the chance to make cool but mostly unnecessary apps to run on it. This new one does not break from that tradition but it does turn your MacBook Pro into Kitt from Knight Rider.
Grant Thompson does silly stuff with science and when he received a request to flush sodium down a toilet he knew who to call — the man who flushed mercury down a toilet with a hypnotic swirl. All cleaned up, the mercury toilet meets its ultimate demise in a mushroom cloud of destruction.
Video: Few have $500-odd to spend on a single book, let alone one containing photos of Apple's products and ultimately destined for a coffee table made of crystallised children's tears. We all had a laugh at Apple's reveal and now comedians are — unsurprisingly — ripping into it.
It's precisely one month until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits Aussie cinemas. I don't know about you guys, but my hype is steadily rising off the charts. The latest cinematic hors d'oeuvre from Disney is a short 360-degree video that puts you in the cockpit of an X-Wing scout as it comes out of hyperspace in a seemingly empty star system — that's not empty for long.
Video: Jumping out of an aeroplane with a parachute on your back has its own risks. But at least in the air there's nothing to crash into until you hit the ground. Speedflying, on the other hand, where athletes like Jamie Lee parachute down mountains just inches above massive rocks, is basically a non-stop life-risking thrill ride.
Video: There's nothing odd about this. There's nothing surprising about it either. If you watch a very hot knife cut through a piece of styrofoam, it's going to be exactly as satisfying as you'd think it'd be.. The styrofoam shrivels up after each cut and turns into this goo that looks more like a marshmallow than anything else.
The NES Classic Edition sold out everywhere in a matter of minutes yesterday. Nintendo has promised that more are on the way but that means you have to do things like wait and have patience. The internet is here to help. This video is a twofer. You can experience the vicarious joy of opening that sucker up and you can see what's in its guts just by clicking play.
Seriously, I strongly warn you to not lean into your screen to get a better look at this monstrosity. This video shows the remains of a dead cricket that some random hiker stepped on while enjoying the great outdoors. Suddenly, the tranquillity of nature was interrupted by the reality of life and the parasites that erupted out of the cricket's corpse.
Hey, if Canon can get into the satellite game, there's nothing really stopping Intel from making its own drones. In fact, Intel has previously impressed with its flying robot technology, demoing 100 of the little dudes in this year's Vivid Sydney. Now it's one-upped itself by synchronising 500 drones to create the most controlled "fireworks" display ever.
Video: Besides the free lollies, Halloween is supposed to be about scaring yourself silly. But don't waste your time on horror movies, haunted houses, or ghost stories. Just watch this behind-the-scenes look at how Hyperflesh makes its oversized baby masks. You'll be terrified of going anywhere near a daycare afterwards.
