What If The Entire World's Population Lived In One City?

Video: Here’s a thought exercise that starts getting kind of gross the deeper you dive into it: What if the entire world’s population lived in one city? What would that city look like? How big would the city be? Or how small can you pack it? Is it even possible? RealLifeLore says that you can fit 7.4 billion people into a city as big as Palestine. Which is, like, basically a bit bigger than Brisbane.

This Dark Animation About The Future Is Stunning

Video: The music video for Lorn’s song Anvil doubles as a short animation about the future where the year is 2100 and overpopulation is dealt with by a mandatory postmortem social network. That is, a social network where people are forced to plug in and die. Yeah, it’s a wee bit dark.

This Drone Can Fly Forever Without A Battery

Want a drone to fly longer and farther? Give it a bigger battery. But that adds weight, which in turn reduces the drone’s flight time. It’s quite a conundrum. It seems like an unresolvable catch-22, except that someone has finally found a way to use wireless power to keep a drone flying.

The World's Largest Elevator Can Lift 3000 Tonnes Of Ship

Video: There are a lot of logistical problems that pop up when you build a 181m structure like the Three Gorges Dam in China’s Hubei province.

You just build the world’s largest elevator capable of lifting 3 million kilograms of boat and water.

Watch A Terrible Delivery Driver Make His Entire Truck Magically Disappear

Take A Cribs-Style Tour Of The Blood-Splattered Ash Vs Evil Dead Airstream 

Video: Ash vs Evil Dead returns to Stan on October 3, and we’re so excited we’re willing to forgive that this promo taps a fairly tired concept by patterning itself after an episode of MTV’s Cribs. That said… when was the last time Cribs zoomed in on a chainsaw? Grab a cold, in-jokey can of Shemps and enjoy.

Agents Of SHIELD's Ghost Rider Effect Involves This Silly Head Piece

Video: In Marvel’s featurette on the visual effects that make Ghost Rider’s flaming skull, even Gabriel Luna seems aware of how hilarious this looks.
