Thirty seconds into watching this video, my face already hurt from smiling too much.
Artist Anthony Petrie thinks the pop culture art scene has gotten a little stale. So many rehashes of the same ideas, same properties, with the same old techniques. This is art! Do something different! Be bold! And with his upcoming solo show—and a little help from the Predator—he’s doing just that.
Many people consider themselves big Star Wars fans. But how many of those people not only have a ton of creativity, but the guts to put it out there for the world to see? This California resident is all that and then some.
We’re only a few days away from the day Marty and Doc arrived in 2015 and things are about to get very Back to the Future. Online, in stores, basically everywhere, fans will soon be celebrating the great film series.
One of the most striking things about Mad Max: Fury Road is the insane palette, full of rich, bright primary colors. But director George Miller said if he’d had his way, the movie would have been in black and white. Now you can see what that would look like.

I’m probably guiltier of hyperbole more than any other writer on this site, but please, please, please do not fail to watch this utterly unbelievable awesome version of that insane car chase from Mad Max: Fury Road, remade with go-karts, paintball guns, and shockingly high production values.
Yesterday, we learned that Disney is adding some absolutely massive Star Wars expansions to their Florida and California parks. Now here’s a video showing the highlights of Bob Iger’s keynote speech—along with more concept art that wasn’t officially released.
Two of the biggest events so far this year were the release of Mad Max: Fury Road and a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. What happens when you put those together, and throw in a lot of original trilogy stuff too? One of the coolest mashup videos we’ve seen in a long time.
Pretty much what it says on the tin, folks. "The Big Wind" is a colossal, roving fire-extinguisher of Hungarian design that combines one part T-34 Soviet tank with two parts MiG-21 turbine engine. Bring it all together, add a trio of operators, and you've got a Mad-Maxian chimera that can gush water at a rate of 220…
Sometimes the traffic on roads develops emergent properties, creating beautiful patterns you never realized were there.
Shaylee was busy playing with her toys on the couch when footage from one of NASA's Space Shuttle launches started playing on television. Anyone who's witnessed something as awe-inspiring as human spaceflight will surely identify with her sense of wonder. All together now: ISSAWOCKETSHIIIIIIIIP!
MAKE Magazine's Jeff Highsmith wanted to build his 4-year-old son an interactive model of an Apollo spacecraft. The result was the surprisingly complex play area seen here – but to really appreciate the thought and effort that went into this project, you really must watch the making-of video. Seriously, this'll blow…
Then again, maybe it wouldn't. After all, in a world where Frankfurt, Germany is home to an Imperial Starport, All Terrain walkers, Lambda-shuttles, TIE fighters, and even the occasional Star Destroyer might amount to little more than quotidian traffic on an airport apron.
If you don't already know why a helium balloon tethered to the floor of a minivan has the power to make your jaw drop, you're going to want to see this. Seriously – set aside five minutes of your time, have a seat and watch. You won't regret it.
This is genuinely incredible. Luca Iaconi-Stewart may just be the world's greatest paper-airplane-maker. Seriously – this guy's work makes your crease-and-fold creations look like utter child's play.
Artist Adam Magyar uses sophisticated software and high-speed camera rigs of his own design to capture beautifully haunting slow-motion footage of commuters, trains and passengers inside NYC's Grand Central Terminal.
In European cultures, we cremate our dead or bury them in a simple pine box. But coffins are a lot fancier in Ghana, where the Ga people believe that life continues in another world after death, and they want it to carry on in style. Here are some stunning examples of Ghana's famous coffin art.
Nautical trade routes stretch like so many lengths of string in this arresting visualization of intercontinental commerce in the 1800s.
