Video: Lots of kids are terrified of thunderstorms, but not Zoey. Her dad, who you might remember from the glowing stick figure costume he made her a few years ago, is back with this over-the-top Princess Cumulus thunderstorm costume that's as wonderful as it is impractical for actual trick-or-treating.
Before the idea of a 'smart home' came long, people had to actually walk over to a switch to turn lights on and off — it was barbaric. Now you can illuminate your entire house with just a few taps on a smartphone app, but Philips wants to make life even easier than that with a new motion sensor that automatically turns its Hue lights on and off for you.
Video: Watching lightning streak across the night sky is already one of Mother Nature's most spectacular displays. But photographer Ron Risman has managed to improve that natural pyrotechnics display with a stunning 4K video of the spectacle that's perfectly edited and synced to a rousing soundtrack.
Using the Panasonic Lumix G7's 4K photo mode which captures still shots at up to 30 frames per second, photographer Matt Taylor captured remarkable before and after night photos revealing just how bright the light generated by a nearby lightning strike can be.
If you've got years of camping experience under your belt, you're probably able to just tune out those things that go bump in the night. But if you only head out into the great outdoors once a year for a weekend camping trip, you'll appreciate the CampGuard lantern which will stand guard and automatically sound an alarm to scare off forest intruders.
Volcanic lightning is one of nature's most epic displays, but what exactly causes the phenomenon is a longstanding mystery. Now, by studying high-speed footage of electrified volcanic outbursts at Mount Sakurajima, scientists have arrived at an answer — and it points to a new method for predicting powerful eruptions.
Matches are a great way to start a fire when you don't want to rub a bunch of sticks together, but their short burn time makes them terrible when you just need a little light. Here's a better idea: a matchbook full of tiny disposable LED torches that you can keep tucked away for when you need some emergency lighting.
Video: In our continuing coverage of Mother Nature's wrath on the planet Earth (also known as lightning strikes on this blue marble), here is an otherworldly view of how this world of ours gets pummelled by electricity. Being so far removed from the ground, like how British ESA astronaut Tim Peake is, the lightning strikes that scar Earth are almost peaceful. Maybe even beautiful?
Video: The weather has been really fun and generous with lightning strikes these days. We've seen it destroy trees and gotten an up close view of it striking but this one might be the coolest angle yet: from outside a flying aeroplane window. The lightning hits the tip of the wing and then streaks in a straight line like a laser shooting out. Pretty cool.
Video: I know what my nightmares look like in real life now: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know what my version of hell would be: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know all this because this time lapse footage from Blue Dog Films is terrifying in the worst ways, with lightning buzzing and snapping all over the place and clouds morphing into every imaginable shape all at once.
