What Sorcery Keeps This Giant Ball Floating on a Tiny Stream of Water?


We’ve all made a tiny ping-pong ball float on a hair dryer, but what YouTube’s Veritasium is demonstrating here—a giant styrofoam ball floating on the side of a thin stream of water—seems to contradict every scientific law governing our universe.
 But there is an explanation as to what’s happening.

This Glove Makes VR Objects Feel Real

A glove like this, which uses techniques borrowed from soft robotics to push back on a user’s fingers and simulate the sense of touch, could be important in future exploration of virtual space, adding more sensation, and thus more reality, to virtual reality. Its creators say it could grow into a new controller for virtual games or even medical devices.

Welcome to the working week


Like the shapes of bodies frozen by ash in Pompeii – an exaggerated arm movement, or an open mouth breathing onto a window dripping with condensation – many of the people in Michael Wolf’s Tokyo Compression photos appear forced into odd poses. Yet these are unstaged images: the positions adopted simply show the everyday contortion of the subway commute.

Aloha!


A 36-year-old California dad named Sholom Ber Solomon doesn't exactly need any convincing from his 9-month-old daughter, Zoe, to play dress-up. He's got a flair for matching costumes, and the hilarious photos he takes with his baby girl are going seriously viral.
 From ballerinas, to hula dancers, to literally a bucket of fried chicken, Solomon and his little lady have taken on quite a host of characters.

Would Your Dog Eat You if You Died?

In 1997, a forensic examiner in Berlin reported one of his more unusual cases in the journal Forensic Science International. A 31-year-old man had retired for the evening to the converted garden shed behind his mother’s house, where he lived with his German shepherd. Around 8:15 p.m., neighbors heard a gunshot from the direction of the shed. Forty-five minutes later, the man’s mother and neighbors found him dead of a gunshot wound to the mouth, a Walther pistol under his hands and a farewell note on a table. Most of his face and neck were gone—and there were tooth marks around the edges of the wounds. A half-full bowl of dog food sat on the floor. The German shepherd was calm and responded to police commands. On the way to an animal sanctuary, the dog vomited some of its owner’s tissue, including skin with still-recognizable beard hair. No one tracks the frequency of pets scavenging their expired owners’ bodies, but dozens of such case reports appear in forensic science journals over the last 20 years or so, and they’re the best window we have into a situation dreaded by pet owners: dying alone and being eaten.

One Japanese diver has been friends with the same fish for 25 years.


Hiroyuki Arakawa has been entrusted to oversee one of the Shinto religion’s shrines called torii, which is located beneath the surface of Japan’s Tateyama Bay. Over the decades, he got to know marine creatures who live around the shrine, and, most importantly, became buddies with a friendly Asian sheepshead wrasse named Yoriko.
 Their beautiful relationship was captured on a viral video, in which we see Arakawa’s custom of greeting the fishie with a kiss.
