In this video there is a two way highway with a manhole cover between the two lanes. It's raining and all of a sudden a huge geyser of water shoots up out of the manhole cover. One of the passing cars gets hit by the flying manhole cover. The geyser dies down and then near the end of the video it does it again.
Here's a photo which showed up on Yahoo's most emailed photos list. Apparently it is a giant rockfish which was caught by a NOAA vessel in the Bering Sea according to the caption on the photo. The guy in the photo is holding up a 38 inch ruler to the fish to show how big it is.
Here is a pretty bizarre demonstration of a starfish shaped robot that generates it's own walking algorythm. Apparently the robot gets a sense of itself and then uses that to 'walk'. Near the end of the video they damage the robot and it is still able to walk around based on the new modal it generates. Or something.
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.
Here is a video of a pool of corn starch on a Spanish TV show. The mixed up corn starch in a concrete mixer and then poured it into this pool. The trick is that it is a non-newtonian fluid which means that when force is applied to the liquid it exhibits properties of a solid. In the video the two hosts of the show repeatedly run over the top of the corn starch. Just to show that it is actually liquid the one host sinks into the corn starch while the other host continues to run around on top of the liquid. Near the end they have some bystanders also run over the liquid and the other host sinks into the corn starch too.
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.
According to Wikipedia ferrofluid is composed of nanoscale ferromagnetic particles in a carrier fluid. When you put a magnet near the fluid it forms all kinds of crazy spikey liquid shapes. The caption for this video doesn't say but I believe they have an electromagnet below and above the ferrofluid seen in the video. They move the magnets around to create the shapes. Additionally they seem to have the strength of the electromagnets connected to a clap on clap off device. Near the end the two presenters cap which causes the ferrofluid to move and stop. Weird looking stuff.
Here is a video of a 2006 Ferrari which was burning on the side of a highway. For the first part of the video cars just keep driving by ignoring the burning Ferrari until finally someone stops the traffic. Near the beginning of the video it looks like the gas tank explodes because there is a huge fireball plume before the fire dies back down. It seems like the driver of the Ferrari is standing a ways back down the road calling emergency services on his cell phone. Guess they don't make them like they use to huh?
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.
In this video the green car runs a red light (according to the caption) and hits a motorbike. The guy on the motorbike rolls onto the car windshield and hits his head on the glass (you can see the cracks where he hit it) before coming back down on his bike with his shoulder and finally falling to his feet on the pavement. From here he starts walking around yelling and throwing up his hands. It's pretty amazing that he is able to walk around after being hit like that. He walks off camera for a moment and stands on the center divider (so he doesn't get hit again) before walking back and picking up his backpack out of the street. The lady in the car gets out and watchs talks to the guy from near her car.
