Video: What's a porg, you ask? Well, it's not quite a pigeon, and it's not quite a hog, so to answer your question, I have no idea.

Video: Forget the uncanny valley and not-quite-perfect CG humans freaking you out, this title sequence for London's recent OFFF digital arts festival will make you so uncomfortable you'll want to burn your laptop.

Video: Modern materials engineering allows us to build what looks like precarious glass skywalks perched hundreds of metres off the ground.
