Classic TV Commercials from 1948 – is that really the world’s first toothpaste rap?

What makes old television so compelling…especially the advertising. Is it the innocence? The lack of guile and uber slick psychological manipulation we get nowadays? Or is it the fact that they couldn’t care less about jump cuts and fast talking sales pitches in those days?

Mashup! – NAO Robot vs Judson Laipply…The Evolution Of Dance

We did a mashup for fun. Switch off the sound on the left hand video, click start and then immediately click start on the right hand video for the best effect. The robot is not being remote controlled. Just think, one day these robots will be doing this without all the programming, which will be part scary and part amazing. Man and Machine in perfect harmony?

This riveting International Space Station Video Tour is a must watch glimpse of an alien lifestyle

Ever wondered what it would be like to live on the International Space Station for six months? Think it would be easy? Well think again. Apparently not only is it a very busy place indeed, with lots of scientists doing amazing experiments and all that boffin type activity, but it also comes with its own share of weirdness. Like the fact that you don’t ever sit down. Not for 6 months or however long your tour is. No chairs you…

Remote controlled helicopters have become a popular craze. With the possible exception of Justin Bieber, they may be the most popular things on earth* (*this may be a slight exaggeration…. Justin Bieber really isn’t that popular.)

Lehmann LA100 – fully automatic Go-Pro flyer delivers beautiful aerial photography at a price

This whole aerial photography thing is going ballistic, judging by the number of new products coming on to the market every month. We’re seeing quadcopters at extremely low prices, toys with cameras on board and at the top end sophisticated flying machines which deliver the kind of video photography usually reserved for helicopter footage. But the one problem is that most of the time, piloting these flying cameras is a royal pain, unless you spend countless hours learning how to…

In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a growing craze in town and it’s called cinemagraphs.

How to Make Your Very Own MRI Music Video – The Manual!

A couple of weeks ago we broke the story of the first ever music video made in a multi-million dollar MRI machine, which was picked up by our colleagues at the BBC, TheVerge and Gizmodo and went on to grab 250,000 views in just 2 weeks. Sivu’s Better Man Than He is an awesome debut single, and it helps that I know James personally, and he’s a great guy. Another person who also seems equally awesome is Dr Marc E….

We’re not quite sure exactly what market this new Googo Camera is aimed at, but it packs some interestingly innovative technology. The product is the first peer to peer WiFi camera which can work directly with a smartphone without the need for a router or computer in between.

VinePeek – WARNING: compulsive video voyeurism, 6 seconds at a time

Look, if you’ve got anything you want doing for the next 2 hours, for goodness sake don’t…repeat…don’t go to the VinePeek site. The problem is you’ll get sucked into a world full of 6 second video clips culled from the new Twitter Vine service, and it’s not going to let you go. It’s compulsive, addictive and actually should be made illegal. Seriously. Quick warning, it’s unmoderated, which means *anything* could show up. Including cats and worse. Aaargh…

Better Man Than He – one superb song + one MRI machine = awesome debut music video

We’ve got a feeling this is the first ever music video shot entirely inside a medical MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machine, and it’s a doozy. It’s a fabulous song too, which helps. And no, no magnets were harmed in the making of this video. Full video after the jump.
