This Bench Is Built Using Two Power Mac G5s

This Bench Is Built Using Two Power Mac G5s

The Apple Power Mac G5 was an iconic computer—but, launched back in 2003, it's since been superseded by the Mac Pro. So what better way to celebrate its long and useful life than using its bold looks elsewhere in the office?

Good night, Chicago
23-Oct-14   By: Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Casey Chan to Gizmodo

Good night, Chicago

I like Chicago. The city is clean, the architecture is nice, Wrigley Field is fun, a river cuts through it and the lake is right there. I wanted to make fun of the Bean but it drew me in like a mosquito about to be zapped. And hey, I realized that I don't really like ketchup when I visited Chicago. It's a nice place.

Classic sci-fi spaceships make me nostalgic for a future that never was

French illustrator Manchu is one of the masters of classic sci-fi illustration. His worlds and spaceships are massive, optimistic, colorful, and sometimes even zany on his alien spaceship designs. Masterfully crafted, his work reminds me of another one of the greatest: The British Chris Foss.

The new Double Down burger is even more ridiculous than the original

The new Double Down burger is even more ridiculous than the original

Foodbeast found a new KFC Double Down burger that is even more insane than the original: the Zinger Double Down King at KFCs in Korea. Instead of just sandwiching bacon and cheese with two fried chicken filets, this Double Down uses the same fried chicken for buns but adds a sauced up burger patty in between too.

New Tron-like smart highway has lines that glow in the dark

The first stage of Smart Highways—a project created by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and Hejmans Infrastructure—is finally completed and looks amazing. Located at N329 in Oss, Netherlands, this futuristic road has lines that glow in the night and charge during the day. Increasing driver's visibility and safety.

A man returns to Chernobyl after leaving decades ago

A man returns to Chernobyl after leaving decades ago

This is the music video for It's Alright, by Fractures, filmed in location in Chernobyl, Ukraine, right after the Maidan revolution that shook that country. It's not as visually or musically powerful as Paolo Nutini's Iron Sky, but I like the overall tone.

Can anyone really eat this insane five-patty Japanese cheeseburger?

Can anyone really eat this insane five-patty Japanese cheeseburger?

I always feel guilty eating plain double cheeseburgers at Shake Shack, but after seeing the Tower Cheeseburger by Korean-Japanese fast food chain Lotteria, I won't anymore. These people are crazy. And the real thing even looks crazier than this beauty marketing shot:

Air New Zealand made a Lord of the Rings movie for an epic safety video

Air New Zealand loves to make fun in-flight safety videos that can include anything from body paint to supermodels to Richard Simmons to Betty White. This time though, they've gone beyond epic: the safety video is basically a full on LOTR and Hobbit movie set in Middle Earth. It's impressive.

How to cut a goose feather into a lovely quill pen

How to cut a goose feather into a lovely quill pen

I'm not going to lie, I don't really need to know how to cut and make a quill pen from a goose feather. No one does anymore. But! I was completely fascinated by the process of it. It's funny how he uses both vintage tools (an 1800's era quill cutting knife) with modern technology (a NYC metro card!).

Wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas made this impressive time-lapse showing the massive migration of wildebeests from Kenya to the fresher pastures of Tanzania. Will calculates that about 1.5 million wildebeests crossed the Mara River, Kenya, during the five days they spent shooting.

These photos are so incredibly perfect that I can't believe they're real

This image is so impossibly flawless in every aspect that is hard to believe it is real. Technique, composition, subject matter—it's like a perfect dream, but it's an actual photo of Svolvaer, Norway, by extremely talented Max Rive. His other work is equally perfect and stunning to the point of disbelief.

What the USA thinks of Europe and what Europe thinks of the USA

What the USA thinks of Europe and what Europe thinks of the USA

Stereotypes today are typically outdated and vaguely racist but when harmless, they can be quite comical. Like these quick hitter animations about what the USA thinks of Europe and vice versa and what different parts of Europe thinks about the other parts. They're a lot of fun to watch.

This New Ikea Desk Goes From Sit To Stand With The Push Of A Button

This New Ikea Desk Goes From Sit To Stand With The Push Of A Button

Sitting is comfy, but hours (and hours and hours) on your rear-end isn't great for your bod (even though it probably won't kill you ). Standing is good, but tiresome after a while. Hybrid desks can be pricey but Ikea is betting on Bekant, a workspace that raises and lowers on two telescopic legs with a button push.

This is first trailer for Avengers 2: Age of Ultron and it looks amazing

Comicbook Resources got the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, apparently leaked early by Movieweb, and now it appears it has leaked everywhere. It's narrated by Ultron (James Spader), and features all the team members—plus the much anticipated Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor. [UPDATED with highlights]

All the President's Men Is What Made Me Want to Become a Journalist

Ben Bradlee was editor of the Washington Post when the newspaper did something phenomenal: It took down the Nixon administration in the Watergate scandal. I didn't know anything about Bradlee or newspapers or the Washington Post when I saw the 1976 film about the scandal—I only knew I wanted to work somewhere just like that.

This is what happens when you give McDonald's to organic food "experts"

"What happens when you serve McDonald's food to some experts and pretend it's a new organic meal?" ask Sacha and Cedrique. To answer this question they went to a organic food fair in Houten, Netherlands, armed with disguised McNuggets and Big Macs. You can imagine what happens—or just watch their video:

I really want this sci-fi short film to be made into a full movie

Into Dusk is a sci-fi short film about a terminal patient—Ellie—and her lover—Wren—who is broke, desperate to save her life—and has a gun. Jason Ho filmed it to attract investors to make a full feature. I would watch a film that explores how a normal drama could develop in a future world with different rules.

These Insanely Detailed Star Wars Models Are Truly Works of Art

As the next wave of leaks from the next Star Wars are oh-so-slow to trickle in, hopefully this will tide you over: A colossal collection of 140 photographs featuring Industrial Light & Magic's model-building process from 1977 to 1983. It's simply incredible.

Hot Chip: I Feel Better
22-Oct-14   By: Kelsey Campbell-Dollaghan

Music videos allow artist to convey profound emotions: Joy. Sorrow. Bliss. Anger. It's also capable, in rare instances, of making you nearly pee your pants with laughter. Such is the case with Hot Chip's classic 2010 video for I Feel Better.
