There’s an iPhone laying somewhere on this carpet. You have to stare really hard and probably scour every pixel of this picture and possibly stop blinking for at least four minutes in order to find it, but I promise you that it’s there. Jeya May Cruz dropped her iPhone onto this rug and basically saw her phone vanish before her eyes. Who knew iPhones had an invisibility feature.
Video: In a dystopian future, a group of robot prisoners break free and are allowed to venture into the unknown, where they meet a strange duo who help them reset their identities. Or… something. There’s not too much of a story here, but damn, this short sci-fi film looks exceptional.
Damn. That’s a good statue. This 50m-tall bronze figure depicts Guan Yu, an ancient Chinese general, and majestically towers over Jingzhou, China. Shanghaiist says that over 4000 strips of bronze have been stuck onto the body of Guan Yu and he stands atop the 8000 square metre Guan Yu museum. All that is great but damn, I just can’t get over how fantastic the statue looks.
Video: China still isn’t sure if it will release Ghostbusters, but the country’s filmgoers won’t be lacking for supernatural insanity if it doesn’t. Witness the trailer for fantasy epic League of Gods, touted as a riff on the X-Men though it’s actually inspired by ancient Chinese mythology. It’s a CGI smorgasbord, and it looks NUTS.
Using the Panasonic Lumix G7‘s 4K photo mode which captures still shots at up to 30 frames per second, photographer Matt Taylor captured remarkable before and after night photos revealing just how bright the light generated by a nearby lightning strike can be.
When you think of the daily abuse that aeroplane seats have to endure, it’s a minor miracle they aren’t torn to shreds after just a week of air travel. The fabrics used for the upholstery must be just short of indestructible, so it makes sense to eventually recycle those materials into bags and packs that can easily survive your daily commute.
Apparently some people are angry that the new Ghostbusters movie has “ruined their childhood”. But I must confess that this came as a shock to me. Because either these people discovered a way to travel back to the 1980s… or they don’t understand how the simple progression of time works.
Bad news American perverts: McDonald’s free public Wi-Fi will begin using filters to keep customers from watching porn in its US restaurants. The filtering will eventually affect all corporate-owned locations. McDonald’s says the new policy is aimed at creating “a safe environment”.
An underwater survey off the coast of Greece has uncovered a massive cache of wrecked ships, sunk over a span of more than 2000 years. And researchers just keep finding more and more to add to that tally.
