Crab Footed Miniature Steam Locamotive Moves Around In This Video
This video features a pretty bizarre vehicle. It is a miniature steam locamotive except that instead of wheels and a track it runs on crab legs. There looks to be maybe 50 or so crab looking feet that moves the miniature engine around.

Illusionist Walks On Water In A Hotel Pool In Las Vegas Or Miami
The illusionist in this video appears to walk on water in this video. It looks like he is in either Las Vegas or maybe Miami by the look of the hotel in the background. In any event he walks up to the hotel pool while holding a small video camera and while being filmed by his crew. He steps out into the water and proceeds to walk across. The from sides it really looks like he is walking on something solid an inch or so under the water. However, when it switchs to his personal camera view it looks like he is just windmilling his legs while something else moves him across. At one point someone swims under him and at another point he takes off his shoes and they sink into the water. Based on his windmilling legs I'm going with he's using some kind of wire harness.

Pulsing Optical Illusion Video Tweaks Out Your Vision For A Few Seconds
This video has a pretty crazy optical illusion going on in it. Basically you sit there for a minute or so while these diamond lines pulse in the center of the screen. What is weird is if you screen shot the video it looks perfectly normal. However, when you are watching the video the center four or five lines or so seem to be moving towards the center and all the other lines are moving away from the center. When you look away from the optical illusion your vision seems to 'bubble' in the center of whatever you are looking at. It goes away after maybe 10 or 15 seconds. Crazy looking.

Resonating Spores Look Like Tiny Galaxy In This Video
Here's a pretty crazy resonance video I found over on a video site. You maybe have seen some of our other blogs where they use resonance to form patterns in sand and water. In this video which is similar a guy has about a�30cm�diameter piece of paper covered in moss spores. The paper is vibrated and it causes all kinds of crazy patterns to form in the spores (powder). The different frequencies cause different patterns to form. He focuses on two patterns in the video where the spores spin around like a galaxy in the center of the paper; first clockwise and then counterclockwise.

Crazy Dune Buggy Fails To Top A Hill And Drives Back Down
In this video out at this big dune buggy event there is a really high sandy hill that the duners race up and down. So this white dune buggy track picks up some speed and drives up the hill trying to make it all the way to the top without falling back down. He almost makes it (maybe ten feet from the top) before his buggy tips over on it's side into the sand. This is there gravity takes over and tips the dune buggy back on it's wheels and the guy drives it back down the hill without crashing. In an alternate universe the buggy would have started running down the hill end over and end and probably exploded.

Video Of The Swedish Police Officers Raiding The Pirate Bay Serverfarm
Apparently on the 31st of May a group of about 50 Swedish police officers raided the�server farm of the company�which hosts the server for "The Pirate Bay" website. "The Pirate Bay" is a website which indexes torrent files (which are filesharing�pointers to other files). Some of these pointers point to files which may infringe copyrights in certain countries. However, "The Pirate Bay" is a prefectly legal service (according to the owners and the local law apparently) where it is hosted which is in Sweden. To make a long story short the MPAA alledgidly put political pressure on a Swedish politician who put pressure on Swedish police to 'raid' this data center. This video is from the security cameras in the data center. It's pretty funny watching these 'police' wander around in the datacenter and pick their noses (literally). Police don't wear uniforms in Sweden or what? Even more interestingly is that usually after the guy with the camo jacket wanders by the police come back and cover the security cameras with garbage bags. Could they be any more unprofessional if they tried? This video doesn't show it but apparently they took ALL of the servers in the datacenter regardless of who owned them. For the win?

Female Japanes Android Unveiled In Japan For The Win
So here is a video of a demonstration in Japan showing a human like 'android'. The android stays sitting in the chair the whole time so I'll wager they still need to work on that whole walking thing. The actual face looks pretty real but�I noticed they covered up the hands with gloves because they probably made it look fake. The android moves around but you can tell the motions are driven by servos as they are hardly smooth to say the least. The commentary in the video is all in Japanese so good luck with that. Maybe they need to pair up with the company working on that robotic pack mule for the US Army.

Video Rendered In Maya Of A Tornado Eating An Oil Refinery
Here's a video I found on Google Video of a Tornado rendered in Maya. The partical effects seem to be done pretty well and it looks like the tornado is ripping through an oil refinery or some such. There are all kinds of what look like sheet metal particles swirling around outside of the body of the tornado itself. And where the tornado moves through the refinery there are explosions and fire gouting up into the air. The video doesn't perticularly look very real but they did add a camera shake effect so it would seem like someone was holding the video camera.

Set Of Robot Vacuum Cleaners Dance In Unison To Music
There isn't really any caption information that explains this video but as far as I can tell these are a couple of vacuum cleaners. There is a music track playing in the background and the vacuum cleaners 'dance' to it. I can't tell if they are automated or someone is controlling them via a remote control. One modification they seem to have is the little multicolored white tube sticking out of the top of each one. On top of the tube seems to be a styrafoam ball which puffs up and down on a cushion of air blown out by the vacuum. These look much bigger than your standard Roomba so maybe they were prototypes or some such?

Metal Robot With A Latex Einstein Head Walks Around And Talks
We're one step closer to�a Futurama future! This video has a group of scientists from Hubo Labs working on a robot version of Einstein. I'm not sure what their overall goal with the project is other than maybe creating a robot tour guide or robot grade school history/science lesson. The head of the robot is a human shaped latex head of Einstein while the rest of the robot is your generic Japanese looking robot. The head and face of Einstein has facial expressions and 'talks' (though I assume it is pre-recorded). The head itself looks pretty good but it would have probably looked better had it been on a human sized body and not a three foot tall robot body.
