Thread: Interesting Video Finds Part 3

    Having posted this one, with Geico ads, I couldn't very well complain about the little bit of commercialism involved with PhotonWrangler's contribution.

    The last reply to my question about allowing viral marketing on CPF that I ever would have anticipated from a Moderator is the posting of currently running television commercials.

    Thanks for the replies and for your understanding, gentlemen.

    On a technical note I think they used the soundtrack from the Animusic video throughout, as I hear absolutely no room noise during the video - no footsteps, crowds talking, cellphones ringing or cameras clicking. So now I'm starting to wonder if their contraption is actually playing the music or simply "lip-syncing" to the pre-recorded track. It's an amazing accomplishment regardless.

    PhotonWrangler, despite my sour feelings about corporations creeping into every facet of our lives, including viral videos here at CPF, the fact is that the video you posted is really cool. It occurs to me though that many people out there may not know that reference you made to the original Animusic video and may never have seen any of them. So, to keep things in context, here is it, the one that started it all, "Pipe Dream":

    That's the one. Thanks, EZO. That is a very cool series of videos. I remember seeing an interview with the two guys that created them. If I can find that I'll post it here also. Wondering if it was done using Maya, a 3D animation tool that includes physics rules.

    Apparently not Maya, but according to the FAQ on their website they seem to use just about everything else including their own proprietary software and Autodesk 3ds Max. More HERE and HERE.

    You have probably seen this video before... it went viral and have almost 30 million visits now:



    Now add a 10 year old kid and two multichampion trials riders to the mix:



    If you think the guy in the motorcycle can't ride, think again:



    The most amazing thing about the last video is that there is not a stunts video. Most of the footage came from actual competition (no double-takes, nervousness, the need to do things not flashy but effective...)

    I like my Emerson too. But don't think it's tough enough to chop down a tree. Maybe a skinny tree.

    I really liked the EDC Raps.

    I was looking over the kits on a site owned by Ladyada and I ran across a kit called SpokePOV. It puts LED POV animations on yer spinning bike wheels. The kit even comes with software that enables you to program your favorite ani into the LEDS.

    OLED panels might be integrated into auto bodies someday for signal lights and futuristic effects.

    I knew the second I saw those animated taillights after the 1:25 mark that these are without question the way of the future; there's no way any retailer will be able to keep these in stock once they hit the market..

    As I mentioned before I love looking for animated shorts on youtube. A friend of mine knows this, so when he found the following little gem he mailed me the link. What can I say, I absolutely love it.

    Ok, this one is all about advertising, but try to look past that aspect.

    This is a video about the reprisal of the famous "Mean Joe Greene" Coke spot. The current ad is for a fabric softener, and they did a great job or recreating the feel of the original Coke commercial, even down to the music which is done in the same style and key as the original ad. And the punch line at the end is pretty funny.

    Mean Joe Greene does it again

    Nerdy goodness.

    The Wiki on "singing Tesla coil" says that they use MIDI and control the coils via fiber optics using PWM.

    There are other tunes on YouTube by Crazeman5522 including "In the Hall of The Mountain King" among a few others.
