Pocket Rockets

Do you fancy being able carry your own rocket launcher around with you? OK, just me then. I have actually made miniature rockets like this using matches and tinfoil but this guy takes them to a whole new level.

Cardistry

Quite a hypnotic video showing the art of cardistry or fancy card shuffling. I could watch this for a long time but I'm not sure I would want to play this guy at poker.

Knock Knock

Watch a wonderfully animated love story that that takes place across multiple screens of iPhones, iPads and MacBooks. It is a music video for the band Brunettes Shoot Blondes and their song Knock Knock and it has gone viral. The video tells the story of a lovestruck rabbit, who dashes across the Apple devices to catch up with the object of his affections. It's an incredible combination of live action camera work and animation, intricately synchronised between a series of devices with different sized screens.

Home-Made Cloud

Another great moment on Jimmy Fallon's show. Jimmy and actress Lucy Liu perform science experiments with Kevin Delaney, with gasses of different densities. The impressive conclusion shows them making a giant indoor cloud.

Drum Pad

Japanese YouTuber oodairago has uploaded multiple videos of himself playing a virtual drum kit on his iPad. Dexterous to say the least, he doesn't miss a beat. Certainly takes up a lot less space than the real thing for the budding drummer.

Tyre Roll

There are many reasons why I love the Japanese and this is just one of them. There really was no reason to watch this all the way through but I'm glad I did. Which of the different size tyres can ski jump the furthest? You can't tell me you don't wish you could try this.

Back to the Whoture

Doctor Who and Back to the Future meet in a witty little video with some cracking special effects. The DeLorean is a sight to behold but I still think that the TARDIS is a cooler mode of transport.

Time Trap

This is a lovely little sci-fi short. Humorous and intelligent it has won several awards and you can see why. After losing control of his engines, cyborg archaeologist Fripp finds himself stranded on a post-apocalyptic Earth. In order to repair his ship he must dip into the dead planet’s history for some spare parts.
