How Dirt 3 games in live action -its totally fast and furious

Zooming over an empty Oakland Bay Bridge, careering round corners of deserted residential streets, dodging between moving trams, flying over hills….

Professional rally driver Ken Block seemingly managed to close down the entire of San Francisco to make an incredible short film showing him tearing around the city in a seriously souped-up Ford Fiesta.

For his latest internet film, Block screeches round the ghost town pulling various stunts at terrifying speeds.

The famous driver is behind the wheel of a 2012 Ford Fiesta which boasts 650 horsepower taking the car from 0-60mph in 1.8 seconds.

In a scene that looks straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster, Block drives between moving trams at one point.

Hurtling down endless, empty streets Block leaves tyre marks and billowing smoke in his wake. At points the car flies metres into the air as he accelerates over hills.

Six minutes into the video, Block is joined by his athlete friend Travis Pastrana, who appears on his dirt bike.

Block spins the car round Pastrana as he wheelies the bike.

The 10 minute film has become an immediate internet sensation, having been viewed almost 100,000 times since being uploaded onto Youtube today. [Read more...]

5-million-plus views for ‘A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self’

Jeremiah McDonald’s video “A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self: 20th Anniversary Edition” picked up an additional 4-million views over the weekend.

The video features a 32-year-old McDonald having a conversation with his 12-year-old self. It is funny and well-edited, but what makes it so special is that the young man playing 12-year-old McDonald is actually 12-year-old McDonald.

(You may wish you too had had the foresight at 12 to make a video tape of your preteen self talking to your imaginary older self, but then again, do you really want to be reminded of your preteen self? Probably not.)

So, how did 12-year-old McDonald get the idea to shoot the video? [Read more...]

Innovation Synchronized Robots Dance to ‘Thriller’


The NAO robots, built by Aldebaran Robotics and programmed by MIT’s Patrick Bechon and Jean-Jacques Slotine, utilize a process called quorum sensing to synchronize themselves. In nature, quorum sensing is when bacteria emit molecules into the environment so individuals can keep track of how many organisms are around them and what they’re doing.

That’s interesting because while synchrony allows large numbers of robots to do the same thing at the same time–such as dancing or marching–it also allows large number so robots to do different but related tasks at the same time.

In other words, synchrony is an enabling technology for large scale co-operation. And that opens the way to an entirely new set of tasks that robots could do–think manufacturing and construction. Perhaps even nest building.

Robot construction sites built into robot factories, which will assemble robot man-birds, who will learn to build nests to hatch robo-chicks. The end is nigh, my fellow humans. Enjoy the dance performances while they last.
