    Wow! Thanks for posting that enjoyable video PhotonWrangler. He's great. I love that he's not just some nerdy but gifted little kid; he's also got an engaging personality and sense of humor to go along with his talent.

    I learned of him this morning when I saw him doing a live performance of a Billy Joel song on the Today show. I had to pick my jaw off of the floor!

    They mentioned that he has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder; somehow his disorder seems to be helping him in his performances with his incredible ability to focus on the music that he hears, translating it "from his ears to his brain to his fingertips" (his own words) rapidly and accurately. And it seems to have given him an ability to look past typical social inhibitions, allowing him to express himself in a uniquely pleasant and engaging way.

    Rock on, little Ethan!

    Popcorn popping in slow motion. The 400x stuff at the end is amazing.

    Cool! The Phantom Flex camera strikes again! I wonder how these two young guys can afford a 50-150 thousand dollar camera like that to goof around with in their backyard. I mean, the Dumt og Farligt guys have the budget of a popular national TV show. In any event, I enjoyed some of their other "slowmoguys" videos I watched as a result of your link even though they aren't quite as flat out crazed as those two other guys. (they come close a few times, though)

    I still really wanna' have a Phantom Flex to play with the more I see what these cameras can do.

    There is an interesting video making the rounds that purports to be an unidentified "pulsating winged being" briefly caught on a security camera in Cilandak Town Square, South Jakarta Indonesia on September 11, 2011.
    It is allegedly surveillance camera footage from an outdoor shopping mall and a group of "security guards" immediately comes running over to investigate the spot where the "creature" landed.
    Usually, these kind of things turn out to be hoaxes or just an insect in front of the lens. That may likely be the case here as well but after watching it carefully several times and stopping the action, I am intrigued by the light reflecting off the floor, nearby objects and the far walls and when viewed frame by frame the "being" does have a certain "humanoid with wings" appearance. Anyway, see what you think.

    Looks fake to me. The timing of the pulsations doesn't quite match the reflections in the surrounding windows and walls. It looks like a fairly well done fake, but a fake nonetheless.

    Yeah, I totally agree, PhotonWrangler. I went to the trouble of downloading the video, doing some post processing and watching it in slow motion and stop frame. It does seem to be a hoax or perhaps a viral marketing video for an upcoming film or video game. You are exactly right about the reflections not quite matching the actions of the "being". It is actually pretty well done but the real giveaway is the flashed beam of light on the rear wall at exactly the 7 second mark which is totally out of sync with the actions of the "light being" and very obviously projected from the right side by someone out of the frame, off camera. This is visible even if you watch at normal speed but unmistakable in slow-mo.

    Well, I guess I kind of enjoyed the whole thing anyway and it definitely fit that criteria for "Interesting Video Finds".

    This timelapse video of the Northern Hemisphere is the highest resolution single-shot imagery ever taken of the Earth at 121 Megapixels (0.62 miles per pixel)
    It was captured by Russia's first domestic geostationary meteorological satellite Elektro-L during its orbit 36,000 kilometers above the equator.
    Unlike most NASA photos of the Earth from space, these images were snapped in a single shot. By contrast, NASA's photos are usually composites of several photographs.



    This next one is one of the largest whole disk images of our planet, each image is 121 megapixels, and the resolution is 1 kilometer per pixel. The video is composed of still images taken every half hour in four different wavelengths of light, three visible, and one infrared that have been interpolated (smoothed) to create the video. The infrared light is reflected by forests and vegetation, which appear orange in these images.



    Edit: If you have the bandwidth try viewing these videos in 1080P or 720P full screen HD directly on YouTube.

    You are welcome! Yeah, I kind of had the same reaction.

    I read that these videos are being compared to the famous "Blue Marble photo" taken on December 7, 1972, by the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft.
    Somewhere I read that it is the most famous, most viewed photo in history.

    This video by photographer Patrick Colpron of a remarkable six-sail kite designed and flown by Steve Polansky was shot, edited and posted to YouTube with an iPhone4.
    The soundtrack is Lighthouse by Patrick Watson.
    It is like an impromptu video poem.

    I've did my fair share of jumping off cliffs into water but nothing like this. I would buy this guy lunch too.

    If you're a reporter who's been sent out to cover a sandstorm and you arrive too late for the storm, don't try to fake it.

    Had that been a female reporter, no one would have known she was faking it.

    Solve a 4x4x4 Rubik's Cube. I've tried it. What it's made with. LEGO's and a computer.

    Designing, building, then watching it work was probably fun. That's why I posted the video, I think it's pretty cool & interesting that they built it using LEGO'S.

    I'll admit, it's an interesting piece of engineering.
