The Future is Here!

I don't know if this is for real - I got this link from a University site.

Check out the video footage on the bottom of the page.


Wacky stuff...

Pretty clever, but the behavior of the liquid is a dead giveaway--it doesn't splatter or run or move in any way, and the wiping is unnatural.

Then there is the problem of physics in the third one--to decellerate something of that weight and speed in such a short distance would require unreal amounts of thrust (with equally unreal amounts of noise) and the engines would have the highest thrust/weight ratio in the history of rocketry.

Cute though.

It's called "digital animation."

This one's for real, though. It's made by General Dynamics' Itronix for the military.

Dishwasher safe. Just make sure you turn it off before the wash cycle or the battery might not last the full eight hours.

Itronix says: "We drop each one 54 times from one meter, bake it in an oven, chill it in a freezer, vibrate it, and submit it to a shower of hurricane proportions,"
