Flexible Video Display Prototype Developed For A Good Time
Here's an article about a flexible video display that Sony is working on. Apparently it is a combination of TFT and electroluminescent display technology. Electroluminescent is a cold light backing which takes very little electricity like you would use on a security vest. Sony is showing off a 2.5 inch flexible prototype display using the technology. Call me when I can actually buy it 5 years from now. I'm putting this one up there with e-ink and the laser laptop keyboard.

Robotic Air Hockey Player Puts The Smack Down In This Video
Here's a video of a guy playing air hockey with a robot he built. The robot tracks the puck with a camera and then uses it's harm to hit the puck away. It seems to be pretty good if a little slow. For example, it seems to have trouble recognizing when the puck is still on it's own side of the line after hitting it.

Demonstration Lithium Ion Battery Explosion Video
Here's a demonstration video of what can happen when a lithium ion battery explodes in a laptop. The video is a little slow so you'll probably want to click forward past some of it. In any event the first 'cell' in the battery explodes releasing some smoke and damaging the casing. The next cell explodes because of the heat from the first cell and blows a hole in the top of the cashing. Each cell explosion is progressively worse than the last one with the fifth or sixth cell explosion throwing out a pretty good size jet of flame.

Indian Guy Conducts Electricity Without Showing Any Signs Of Pain In This Video
A guy in India can pass an electric current through his body and he doesn't feel a thing (or so he claims). In the video he puts a live wire to his tongue and another wire to a fan and the fan starts up and works. At the end of the video he holds a lightbulb and an electric skillet. The flips the switch, the lightbulb turns on, and an egg is fried on the skillet. He states that some people accused him of having some kind of implants in his hands that allowed him to do it but they tested them and there was nothing. the guy is an electrician of all things. He does seem to have a little bit of a spasm when the current first hits but he controls it. Or the whole video is a fake.

Snoopy Rides His Dog House Into Space And Blows Up The Death Star
Here is a Star Wars fan film featuring Snoopy and his little yellow bird friend. Snoopy plays Luke Skywalker and leads the attack on the Death Star while riding his dog house. The little yellow bird plays R2-D2 and fixes the dog house when it gets hit. Everything else is pretty much the same as the original Star Wars except it is cell shaded. Near the end of the video Snoopy is saved by his bowl of dog food (WTF?) instead of the Falcon. Kind of a bizarre video overall much like the Peanuts cartoons. Use the force Snoopy use the force.

Mechanical Spider Vehicle Called Mondo Spider Walks Aaround In This Video
There are a bunch of different video clips of this mechanical spider vehicle and here is one of them. Basically the guy sits in the middle of the "spider" and walks it around with some joysticks. One thing I noticed about the legs is that some of them just seemed to slide along the ground as if the weight was on a different foot than some of the feet that were down. I assume this would allow it to walk on more uneven terrain but on blacktop it seems a little strange. It looks like the gas tank is right behind the drivers head. Apparently they also took this Mondo Spider vehicle to Burningman.

Guy Makes Art In The Top Of His Coffee Cup With Cream And Chocolate
So if you have nothing better to do with yourself you can sit around and make art in your coffee. The guy in this video takes about a half a cup of coffee or hot chocolate or whatever it is and fills the rest of the cup with cream. Next he takes either a small screwdriver or a paintbrush and creates little designs in the top of the coffee. Some of them get pretty complex and at one point he adds in chocolate syrup to have another color to mix in with the coffee and cream. He makes everything from bunny faces to butterflies to star patterns and whatever else he can come up with.

Super Crazy Ninja Cup Stacking Kid For The Win In This Video
The kid in this video is possibly a secret disguised ninja as she captures the "cup stacking" world record in 7.43 seconds. Who knew there was a cup stacking record anyway. In any event, first she stacks up a large stack in the middle and two small stacks. After breaking those down she stacks two large stacks and breaks them down again. Finally she stacks one extra large stack in the middle. These are plastic drinking cups like you would buy in the store. Super crazy secret ninja or little kid? You decide.

Beer Cannon Destroys Household Objects In Slow Motion For The Win
Here is a slow motion video of various household objects being fired at high speed at various other household objects and shown here in slow motion. Some of the things they fire out of the cannon are beer cans, mustard jars, sausage, whipped cream containers, and paintballs. They use a little white cup inside the cannon barrel to blow out whatever it is that they are shooting out of the cannon (you see the white cup in most of the shots). When they shoot the paintballs it works like a shotgun and peppers the target. They blast a TV, a radio, melons, flower pots, flower arrangements, bottles of wine, and all kinds of other stuff with beer cans.

Material Repulses Magnet Only When Very Very Cold In This Video
This video features an interesting material that only repulses a magnet while at a certain temperature. In the video they have the black cube material in what I assume is a styrofoam bowl. Next they place the magnet on the black cube to show that it doesn't repulse the magnet. Next they pour liquid nitrogen into the styrofoam bowl to cool down the black cube. This time when they place the magnet over the black cube the magnet is repulsed and floats above the black cube. When they take it out of the liquid nitrogen and it heats up a little bit it no longer repulses the magnet. For the win.
