Robotic House Builder Prototype Video For The Win
This video shows off a prototype of a house building robot. The robot has a pattern that it follows and it just builds one layer on top of another by laying out material (like concrete) and contouring it. The initial robot in the video is a small prototype which seems to be using clear and near the end of the video it moves to larger prototypes using concrete.

Guerilla Marketing Skateboarding Projector Stunt From Holland
Here's a video of a guerilla 'marketin'g tactic from Holland where they drive around with a projector in their vehicle projecting a skateboarder riding around on the top eve of buildings. It's a cool effect but didn't seem like it would be very effective. How long until we see Sonic running around NYC on buildings?

Hypocritical BMW Commercial Which Professes Their Innovative Ideas
In this commercial there is a guy who builds machines similar to Leonardo Da Vinci. He calls himself a kinetic sculpture and his sculptures are made of light materials and powered by the wind. The sculptures look like robotic crop sprinklers with wings. The main idea of the commercial is that the only thing standing in the way of innovation is ourselves. This is somewhat hypocritical because the commercial is for the car company BMW. BMW has been making the same cars for the last 50 years. An innovative car company. What a joke.

Guy Builds A Lego Flamethrower And Tests It In His House For The Win
The latest Lego build is a video of a guy who built a flame thrower out of Legos. I'm not sure how much of a part the Legos actually play in the flame thrower. I assume he has some kind of trigger or rubber bands or some such that lets whatever he is using out of it's container. I don't see that there is any lighting mechanism so he probably just used a hand lighter. The Legos are mainly just the body and handle of the flame thrower. The best part (or worst part) about it is that he is testing the flame thrower inside the house. Is this guy a runner up for a Darwin award?

Guy Built A Moving Stargate Out Of Legos For A Good Time
A guy build a moving stargate out of legos and has a bunch of photos to show for it. Unfortinately there doesn't seem to be a video of the starget in action. However, he has the starget hooked up to a RCX treadmill (whatever that is) which spins the stargate around for a random number of seconds and repeats that seven times. The chevrons (the little red things on the gate) have LED lego blocks in them which light up as well. Legos seem to be a pretty way to fast prototype things based on some of the other projects I've seen done with them.
Check out all of the photos of this lego stargate for yourself.Read More >>

Illusionist Floats Between Two Buildings In Las Vegas In This Video
Illusionist guy floats between two buildings in Las Vegas in this Video. There is not a continuous camera on him the entire time as they cut between camera views. Before he starts he gives one of the "spectators" his own camera to film it with. One thing I thought was kind of weird is that the comments the people make seem pretty close to the same comments made in the video where this same illusionist walks across a pool. When they show his shadow against a wall while he his doing his trick there isn't any wire shadows that I could see but the video quality is pretty poor.

Guy Builds His Own Stonehenge Using Sticks And Rocks For A Good Time
Guy in this video is working on his own Stonehenge using only sticks and rocks. In the video his rolls a one ton rock along a specially designed wooden platform using only his hand. He shows how he uses a stone under a huge block of concrete to spin it around and how if he puts another stone under it he can move it with a lever system. In another video clip he moves an entire bard using this method. He takes a huge Stonehenge style block and drops it upright in a hole using some weights, rope, and sticks. In order to get the huge piece of rock high enough to drop it in he rocks it back and forth and sticks a stick in each side of the fulcrum after he rocks it. Reminds me of the Coral Castle guy in Florida. He puts the National Geographic (?) Easter Island guys who were doing something similar to shame though.

Street Fighter Ryu Verses Duck Hunt Ducks In This Mashup Video
Here's a mashup of Street Fighter and Duck Hunter in this video created in Mugen. Apparently Mugen is a build your own Street Fighter clone engine. This guy must have imported the Street Fighter character and moves and put it against the background of duck hunt. It seems like it is actually playable (in that he actually hits the ducks programmably instead of being scripted to the background movie). Mugen has a training mode which this is probably part of. It looks like there are over two hundred different characters you can import and play with in Mugen from a quick web search on the topic.

Build A Do It Yourself LCD Wall Projector In This Video For Around $100
In this video they show you how to make a wall projector out of an old LCD and one of those overhead projectors. The video shows the guy taking an LCD monitor apart and removing the LCD itself from the case. He then places the LCD on top of the overhead projector projection area and tapes it down on the sides. Additionally he adds one small computer fan to the side to keep it cool (though I'm not sure how much good that tiny fan is doing). The end result is what looks like about a 100 inch screen projection on the wall. The whole setup can probably be completed in under $100.

Weird Looking Blacklight Ultraviolet Time Fountain Video
Here is a weird video of something called a 'Time Fountain' which is an illusion that looks like water drops as suspended in air. Apparently the drops of water have fluorescence in them which causes them to glow in the dark. The guy has a rack of blacklight (ultraviolet) lights setup near where the water is dripping. The lights are timed to the water dropping so it looks like the drops are suspended in air. Additionally he can make it look like the drops are falling in slow motion by varying the blacklight flashs. Lastly near the end of the video the water drops seem to reverse and flow upwards. An explaination of how to build your own is available here.
