Watch A Guy Use 90 Instruments To Play A Single Song

Video: How many instruments can you name off the top of your head. Fifteen? Twenty? If you just got to 25 and you’re patting yourself on the back right now, slow down: The Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix is home to over 6000.

How Did Language Begin?

Video: There are many theories on how human language began. Some think it may have started from imitating sounds that already exist in real life. Others think it could have started with our sounds that come from natural reactions (pain, etc.). Or it could have been grunts and noises made when needed to work together. Or maybe even out of love.

China's New Vertigo-Inducing Glass Bridge Is Both Great And Impractical

If you’re looking for something to do in China, you should definitely check out the pyramids at Xian. However, if you decide to do two things (or more), the newly constructed glass bridge in Hunan is worth a look… and a walk.

This Totally Crazy Wingsuit Video Made Me Stop Breathing

OK, which guy is crazier. Graham Dickinson, the guy we see in the video below who’s so impossibly close the ground and the trees and the mountain face and basically centimetres away from crashing the entire time during this wingsuit video. Or the camera man, Dario, who is seeing all the ridiculous things Dickinson is doing and still has to keep track of him and react fast enough to capture the footage.

Netflix Knows Exactly When You'll Get Hooked

In Australia, we often have the double-edged sword of being slightly late to see new broadcast TV shows. We have to wait, but we also have a better idea of whether they’re worth watching. But now that on-demand, all-you-can-eat streaming video services like Netflix are around, we aren’t drip-fed episodes of shows — we get them all at once. So how do you find out what you like? Well, you watch it and see. And Netflix knows exactly how many episodes it’ll take to draw you in and make you watch an entire season.

Ask Gizmodo: How Do I Make My Home Theatre Smarter?

Dear Gizmodo, I have a Denon amp/receiver which has just blown up and needs replacing (15 years old). It was connected to my TV, DVD player and Foxtel box with a 5.1 channel speaker system — I want to be able to maintain all of this, and reuse the existing speakers. In addition, I want to be able to bring the unit into the 21st century with wireless and music streaming. I would like to be able to add wireless speakers around the house and be able to control them via iPhone. Any advice would be welcome! Cheers, Glenn.

Hilarious Japanese Superhero Uses A Camera Flash To Defeat Bad Guys

Superheroes come with a variety of powers and abilities — some better than others. The protagonist of “The Last Sentoshi” may have drawn the short straw, being armed with a camera flash affixed to a (admittedly lovely) stave, but it in no way diminishes her ability to defeat the forces of evil.

Man Spends 14 Hours Riding The Longest NYC Subway Route

New Yorkers aren’t exactly known for taking leisurely strolls, but leisurely subway riding? The concept is as foreign as ketchup on pizza. That’s why most city slickers will have no idea that the longest non-repeating subway route is 250km and includes over 54 transfers. Why should they? Who on Earth is ever going to ride that?

Mr Bean's 25th Anniversary Sees Rowan Atkinson Riding Around London Atop His Famous Mini

It’s been a long time since we last saw Mr Bean, the hilarious character Atkinson himself described as a “a child in a grown man’s body”. But for the show’s 25th anniversary, the man himself brought Mr Bean — and his memorable Mini — out of retirement for a drive around London.

The Syrian Refugee Crisis Is Our Children Of Men Moment

We often use old sci-fi movies as reference points for our own hopes and fears about our present reality. That computer interface is so Minority Report, we might say. That food is something out of Soylent Green. That building is so Jetsons. It’s imperfect, but it’s a shorthand to talk about the way that the world is changing, for better and for worse.
