A ‘Star Wars’ LEGO Super Star Destroyer Disintegrating in Slow Motion

A LEGO Super Star Destroyer dives nose-first into a floor and disintegrates catastrophically in this slow-motion video from the Wired video series Battle Damage. The footage is reminiscent of the climactic destruction of a Super Star Destroyer in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. The video was released today in honor Star Wars Day (“May the 4th be with you”).

The Eshima Ohashi Bridge is a Japanese rigid frame bridge with an unusually high span that–from certain angles–makes the structure look like a roller coaster for cars. In reality, the 144-foot-tall bridge features grades no steeper than 6.1% (long lens photography exaggerates the incline). The bridge connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato in Western Japan. The bridge’s high span is designed to accommodate boat traffic, as Sakaiminato is a major fishing port.

Gary on Chair

Gary aka the Concerned Kitten is an eight-week-old white kitten born with a distinct set of questioning black eyebrows who lives in Bolton, Greater Manchester, UK. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Gary’s human explained how the little guy got his name.

‘As he grew they got bigger and started to spread out. We started saying how confused he looked so I penned him ‘Concerned Kitten’ and it’s just stuck. Aside from his stage name, Confused Kitten has been given another name, Gary, after Gary Barlow because when the Take That star sings he holds his eyebrows up to get to the high notes.

Astonishing Videos of a High-Performance Quadcopter Performing High-Speed Passes and Acrobatic Tricks

A quadcopter flies at astonishing speeds and performs aerial acrobatics in this remarkable video uploaded by YouTube user quadmovr. The extraordinary speed of the quadcopter and the near supernatural skills of the pilot defy belief and–among online commenters–arouse suspicion. The identify of quadmovr is a mystery, however in the last nine months the account has posted more than 20 videos of the high-performance quadcopter in flight. There is also a quadmovr blog on RCGroups that purports to show photos of various iterations of the quadcopter.
