Jetting Thtough the Grand Canyon, 1959

“They wouldn’t be allowed to do it today, but back in 1959, experienced military pilots would sometimes buzz the Grand Canyon when flying out of nearby Nellis AFB.”
Holy cow. This is some very shaky super-8 footage, but it is breathtaking nonetheless.

Lagoa Multiphysics 1.0 - Teaser

Okay this is a little nerdy, but it’s pretty amazing. Lagoa is a physics engine created by Ubisoft team members. Some of the effects it can create are pretty mind blowing. All of what you see is generated by a computer.

Enjoy your weekend.

Lenny Kravitz crashes the VOP Choir in New Orleans

VOP stands for “Voice of Praise”, a New Orleans youth gospel choir. Despite this being filmed by a cohort of Lenny Kravitz, this was allegedly a spontaneous event. If you can ignore the video lag, it’s pretty cool. Lenny’s all right.
