    That’s amazing ! Now, please dudes make the same thing with a kind of space suit to make people drifting :)

  • Tommy

    I don’t see how everyone is calling this fake already. Did the artists say that? My roommate made a levitation device that worked on a much smaller scale, but in a similar manner.

    I’m pretty sure this is real too.

      well, it’s done by an animation firm if that tells you anything.

  • porkchop

    wouldnt want that thing around all the computers

    not a fake! all they would have to do is power the electromagnets inside the balls in staggered stages, so that they’d pulse on and off (and so go up to the magnet and fall back down) in rotation like christmas lights. The result would be a kind of cascading slow-mo pillar. booya, naysayers.

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
