Five Freakingly Awesome Videos To Blow Your Mind!
Ok, now the above video is what I call pretty dang, freaking awesome..... working gears shaped in the form of a cube! It looks to be a totally impossible contraption, and one that could never, ever work in a million, billion, zillion years..... but it does! Not only that, according to this post, the parts were all simply made with a 3D printer!
Now, as totally awesome as that is, get a gander of the video below, a video of balls .... running uphill! Yuppers, it's just an illusion, but boy, oh boy, is it a dandy!
Ok, as cool as the two videos above are, they're not the only illusion that I've got for you, no sir, because, as you can see below, we have a video of some shaded squares. They might seem, at first glance, to be rather plain and boring, but, trust me, they are anything but. However, that said, I'll let you figure this one out for yourself, but don't worry, it's easy:
The illusion below is an old one, and is one that makes your mind insist that what your seeing isn't real, but it really is! I've seen this one before in books, but, however, this is the first time that I've actually seen it demonstrated in a video, so enjoy:
The last video might not really an illusion per say, like the others, but it's still nonetheless pretty cool. This video comes from Apple's recent Beatle promotion and it transforms iconic, but static, Beatle images, and ones familiar to millions of fans worldwide, into seemingly living, animated ones, and is nicely done:
Well, in conclusion, there you go, five cool, if not downright freakishly, awesome and mind-blowing videos, and ones that demonstrate that what may look real sometimes is anything but, and what seems totally unreal at times, actually is!
And that's my 2 cents 4 this glorious, but cold as hell, Monday, December 12, 2011
