The most insane immersive movie experience ever! Watch 3D projection mapping and a PlayStation Move controller transform this guy's room into the movie he's watching - What film would you want to experience with "Immersive Imaging"?

Great instrument & playing..:)
Hang Drum
I recently stumbled across an instrument called a hang drum (see http://goo.gl/kDZ7e, h/t to +Kimberly Carr and +Tyoshi Sakamoto).

Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia describing the instrument: http://goo.gl/h6NOo.
A Hang (pronounced [haŋ], with vowel sound between those of the words hot and hungry) is a musical instrument in the idiophone class created by PANArt in Switzerland.[1]

The Hang is made from two deep drawn, nitrided steel sheets[2] that are attached together creating the recognizable 'UFO shape'. There is nothing inside the Hang but air. The top ("Ding") side has a center 'note' hammered into it with seven or eight 'tone fields' hammered around it. The bottom ("Gu") is a simpler surface that has a rolled hole in the center with a tuned note that can be created when the rim is struck.

The Hang uses some of the same physical principles as a steelpan but with a nitrided surface and structural change of having two clamped shells with a small opening so that the instrument is a Helmholtz resonator.[1][3] The creation of the Hang was the result of many years of research on the steelpan as well as the study of a diverse collection of instruments from around the world such as gongs, gamelan, ghatam, drums and bells.[4] Metallurgical and acoustic research by the makers has led to significant changes and refinement in structure, design, and process over the years since the first Hang was offered.

The sound produced by the hang is really amazing. Check it out!

CubeStormer II

Is a robot which set a Guinness World Record of 5.270 s for the fastest robot solving a Rubik's Cube on 11th Nov 2011 .The CubeStormer II is built from four Lego Mindstorm NXT kits, which are controlled by a custom-made Android app running on a Samsung Galaxy S II. The bot takes a photo of each side, then computes the most efficient way to rotate to the parts so that each side shows just one colour. The project was commissioned by ARM Holdings and designed and built by Mike Dobson and David Gilday.The official human fastest time is 5.66 s
