With the dawn the GoPro camera, anyone can become a first person cameraman. These videos are great, especially in time lapse mode. The only problem is, the videos are often shaky when sped up. Thankfully, Johannes Kopf has unveiled a new technology to smooth out any first person time lapse. He calls it Hyperlapse.

In a futuristic world reimagined, everyone will be equipped with electronic eyes. No longer will people need external computing devices, rather their new eyes will create a hybrid augmented reality for their users. Soon everything will become a ‘game’.
Sight Systems isn’t coming any time soon, but it’s a cool thought of what the future holds.

This video by TTCdirecktor was posted online in June, but has only started to trend now. Cats chasing laser pointers is a common genre online, but this video takes the concept to the next level.
After outfitting a tissue box with a GoPro camera and a laser pointer, TTCdirecktor pulled his homemade contraption across the floor to capture stunning slow motion action of his kitties attacking the laser dot. After adding Enter the Grinder by William Werwath the art piece was complete.

After much sweat and toil, Taylorveltrop has finally unveiled his complete project. Using a Microsoft Kinect, a Nintendo Wii, a treadmill, and computers, he created a quasi virtual reality remote control robot avatar. To test his project, he successfully brushes a kitty in another room with only virtual reality control.

To keep kids interested in science and aviation, Pima Air & Space Museum holds a Great Paper Airplane Project each year. This year, they built the world’s largest paper airplane, named the Arturo’s Desert Eagle. The plane measured a gigantic 45 feet long and 26 feet wide, and flew over the desert of Arizona for ten seconds and hit a top speed of 100 mph! Naturally, the plane was equipped with a GoPro camera to capture the action.

Everyone knows that cats always land on their feet when they fall, but how do they do that? The phenomenon perplexed the nerdy cat owner who runs Smarter Every Day, so he set up his high speed camera and began testing with his kitty, dropping his pet upside down.
The physics behind the phenomenon of cats always landing on their feet is even more amazing once you begin to understand the science behind it.
The nerdy cat video (which is just a perfect recipe for the Internet) has naturally gone viral, amassing over 125,000 hits in just two days. It is already featured on the coveted YouTubeTrends.

Having the amazing opportunity to work in space is many scientists dream. And one of the best parts of being in space is the fun parts! Like experimenting with toys from Earth, such as the yo-yo.
Since the physics are different in space, the yo-yo behaves differently, causing the tricks to have new outcomes.
PhysicsCentralAPS just published this video NASA Astronaut Don Pettit showing us some cool new and classic yo-yo tricks in space that has started to trend.

One of the most important parts of actually being in space is that astronauts can conduct physics experiments in zero gravity they otherwise couldn’t on Earth. Here, a NASA astronaut conducts a small, yet amazing experiment. After ‘charging’ a knit needle with a piece of paper, he squirts drops of water near the needle, causing them to orbit it just like a satellite.
