Combined Virtual And Physical Chess Board Projection Game Prototype
This video from Microsoft shows off a prototype device that projects a screen onto a tabletop and then allows you to interact with it via motion sensing. Probably the best example of it's use in the video is they have one side of a chess board (the side you are playing) as physical objects and the other side as virtual. So the person you are playing against is displayed via the projection over the chess board.

Giant Pumpkin Grows In Time Lapse And Then Explodes With TNT
Apparently a guy grew this giant pumpkin to set a record and he captured the pumpkin growing on time lapse in this video. The pumpkin goes from a flower to a giant mammoth in the video. Finally at the end of the video they blow up the pumpkin with half a pound of TNT. It looks like they move the pumpkin before blowing it up because there isn't anything else green around it at that point but the field could have died back as well. It looks like they put a board under the pumpkin so it wouldn't rot into the ground before they were read to blow it up.

Demonstration 3D Physical Virtual Mesh Video Game System Video
In this video there is a maze like physical 3d structure with a projector on each side of it. The projectors project sections of a 'video game' onto the real 3D structure. However, the characters in the video game are limited by the physical 3D strucure so when you move around you are really moving your virtual character around on the 3D structure. The 'ladders' in the game are virtual (projected on the physical structure). It is a mash up of a physical 3D game board and virtual game pieces. The 'game' is really just a simple walk up and down ladders and move around on the physical 3D object ala Donkey Kong. This might be interesting if it were applied more like projecting characters or pieces on a physical 3D battle diorama or some such.

Treadboard Drives Around Like The Hoverboard in Back To The Future II
So here is a video of what seems like a cross between a snow board, a skate board, and a snowmobile and/or tank. There is a tread at the front of the board and a tread at the back of the board (like a snowmobile) except that the board is the size of a snow board. The engine is in the middle with the riders feet in front and back of the engine. The engine seems kind of big (like the size of a lawnmower engine). In any event the video shows this 'Scarpar' driving around on snow, logs, dirt, grass, and all kinds of other terrain. Reminds me of the hoverboards in 'Back to the Future II'. Now all they need to do is combine this thing with the military drone technology for the win.

When Blue Is Not Blue In Magical Fantasy Land Japan
So for some unknown reason the most emailed photo on Yahoo right now is this photo of an arrangement of 'blue roses'. As you can see in the photo the roses are not even remotely blue so I have no idea how blue has turned into lavender is the magical fantasy land of Japan. They might be blue based (verses red based) lavender but these are not blue. Back to the drawing board there DNA scientist guys. How about mixing in some jelly fish DNA so the roses can glow in the dark for the win.
Head over and see the full sized photo of this not so blue blue roses.Read More >>

Czech Ninjas Take It On The Chin In The Head And On The Back Literally
This video is some video clips of a couple Czech Republic ninjas getting crazy breaking stuff. First up is your standed kick/punch/headbutt to the pine board. They move on to punching through stacks of ceramic tiles and a sledgehammer to bricks on the head and gut. Good thing the guy with the sledgehammer didn't miss or ninja #2 would be in a world of hurt. And the closing video clips are of one guy breaking a bamboo cane over the other guy's back and leg. Ouch. In some countries they cane you as a punishment but in ninjaland getting caned is a reward!

Funny Pirate Gang Carjacking Mashup Video For A Good Time
This video is a mashup of a gang car jacking with an 18th centry pirate attack. The video starts out with some guy getting lost in a bad part of town and having a black car pull up next him. A bunch of pirates spill out of the car and "board" this car via ropes and grappling hooks to the Pirates of the Caribbean theme music. More pirates spill out of the trunk with pirate flags and muskets. The guy is finally pulled out of his car and the pirates chase him around the two vehicles to some humorist tune (Benny Hill?). Finally, they knock the guy out and stuff him in the trunk. Then two pirates have a duel before all of the pirates sailing away in the two "ships". Oh and they have to give a jump start to the ship they just captured before they take off.

AD&D Meets Legoland Miniatures In Live Action Everquest For A Good Time
Pull on your nerd hat and prepare for another one of those OMG WTF moments of "Why didn't I think of that one?". So there is a guy that put togather something called BrickQuest. Basically he took the original board game idea added a little Everquest, a little AD&D, and built the sets with legos and lego characters ala pewter miniatures. One other thing it reminds me of is an old game written in GW-BASIC in the 80s called Wizard.bas in that you don't know what's in the next room until you move there. But wait, that's not all. It has ninjas! Black ninjas and red ninjas and even a Ninja Warlord. What's not to love about this game? As far as I can tell you basically have to buy all the legos yourself and then put it togather with some imagination (or copy the stuff in his images) though he does provide a rulebook. Lego ninja's for the win!
If you're a lego ninja nerd and you can't help it head on over and check out the BrickQuest board game.Read More >>

Skateboard Video Where The Skaters Skate Around On Thin Air For A Good Time
So this video is an excerpt from a much longer verion of the same video. You've probably all seen skateboard videos before and if you've seen one you've seen them all right (besides skateboard crashs as those are always good). Well the twist in this skate board video is that they greenscreened the skateboards and then edited them out of the video in post production so it looks like the skaters are skating around on air. Reminds me of the second Back To The Future movie with the hoverboards. It really plays tricks on your eyes to seem them skating around on thin air. Only in a few places does it look wrong (messed up in post production).
Check out the video of the invisible skateboards for yourself below or click over and view it on the original website.Read More >>

Guy Pulls Some Crazy Bouncing Coin Shotglass Tricks In This Video
The guy in this video appears to have mastered the art of flipping quarters into shot glasses and other such containers. The video itself is quite long and consists of all kinds of different tricks the guy does with the quarter to shoot it into a shot glass. Most of the time he throws the quarter down on the table and it bounces up into the glass. Near the end he gets really outlandish and bounces the quarter across the room and into shot glass inside a pot (and it breaks the shot glass). In another one he bounces the coin over a cutting board into one shot glass where it bounces out again and back across the table to land in a second shot glass. You've got to check this one out.
Check out the full video of the crazy coin tricks for yourself or watch it below.Read More >>
