Star Wars fan and model builder @HanakiMasatoshi has built a floating mini-model of the Millennium Falcon in celebration of the release of Rogue One in Japan.

As you’ll see, he didn’t use the Force to make it levitate. He used a magnetic system designed by a Dutch company Crealev, which allows an object (up to 20 pounds on some models) to hover. See more in the videos below. [click to continue…]


Earlier this year, a group co-workers who were tired of their drab office decided to cover the walls with a superhero mural made from over 8,000 Post-It notes. Four months later they decided it was time to reclaim the wall and get back to work, so they used a leaf blower to quickly destroy what to oodles of hours to create.

Watch the sad end of an era after the jump.

booger beatdown

Birdie from Street Fighter V has an idle animation where he picks his nose and flicks a booger at his opponent. Gross, I know, but amazingly the booger actually does a tiny bit of damage.

As you’ll see in the fight below, the stars aligned and a player was able to deliver a knockout booger blow. I laughed harder than I should.

While most moviegoers don’t seem all that enthused about the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot (who knows? maybe it’ll be good?), YouTubers DidThatJustHappen are pretty excited about the film. In fact, they created a Human Torch-like drone and deployed it over a training yard (which looked like a real town) at a fire fighting academy. The end result looks pretty fantastic indeed.

jedi battle

GoPro cameras catch amazing first-person videos, including this one of a Jedi during a battle. The fan video is the work of Bill Parker who has done lots of effects-heavy videos with a focus on science fiction. This one is so good the folks at GoPro asked him to submit it to their Video of the Day contest.

samurai jack

Genndy Tartakovsky’s Samurai Jack had a brief run on Cartoon Network from 2001 to 2004, but it still has many loyal fans. Tartakovsky has attempted to get a feature film made to finish up the series, but it hasn’t come to fruition thus far.

However, animator avemagnadude has created a beautiful short based on the character. It’s a tribute to his battle against the demon Aku and it will make you wish more than ever that a Samurai Jack movie happens one day.

boring jurassic park

Though the theme park’s name sure is catchy, Jurassic Park is a bit of a misnomer. Paleontologists are quick to point out that many of the park’s residents aren’t actually from the Jurassic era. So, CollegeHumor decided to take a look at what the park might look like if it was accurately named for different geological eras. After watching it, you’ll totally understand the decision from a marketing perspective.
