Halloween: in 5-part Harmony

This is a made-for-YouTube musicial rendition of the 1978 horror flick Halloween. It's not gruesome; but it's awfully weird. Very well done!
I actually don't know who did this; I am impressed with the production, though!

Robot Fish Swims Through the Air

This Fin-Fish remote control blimp floats so gracefully through the air that it is liable to hypnotize you at your office desk until quittin' time. There isn't any information on device, but it appears to be an entry in the annual Airship Regatta held in Germany. And, and like the Air Ray, it is probably built with a helium-filled balloon and servo-driven fins.

Projector Phone Puts Everything Out There


Just last week 3M announced that their MPro110 handheld projector would be shipping on September 30, which was great news for those who’ve been following the development of mini projectors over the years. Their palm sized projector weighs just a third of a pound which is an impressive feat, but the real ‘holy grail’ of mini projectors would be the oft-promised version that’s small enough to fit into a cellphone. So given that 3M is the first company to get a handheld projector to the market, I’m kind of surprised to see that Chinavasion is already selling a projector equipped cellphone.

It’s a tri-band GSM model that features all of the options you’d expect on a smartphone these days like a touch screen, bluetooth, digital camera, microSD card slot and what appears to be a bastardized version of the iPhone OS, but it also includes a built-in 640×480 projector, which is definitely something most consumers would not expect. The photo above shows a supposed actual projection from the phone, but the video I’ve included below seems a bit more indicative of what the projector’s quality is really like.

Incredible Beings Under of the Sea

Although the presentation was given ten years ago (the presenters start by cracking jokes about the then-current box office hit Titanic), ocean explorer David Gallo has some amazing video of animals and other interesting stuff in the deep sea. The thirteen-minute presentation is crammed full of video showing strange octopods, colorful jellyfish, beautiful tubeworms (including a worm fight!), and scary fish — but there’s also some really interesting video of deep-sea hydrothermal vents. The vents are surprisingly active, showing clouds of sulfurous volcanic crud pouring out. Despite this seemingly toxic environment, there’s a thriving ecosystem surrounding the vents — and Gallo has video to prove it. If you’ve ever wondered what’s down there, check out this video!
