Los Angeles-based Vine maker Zach King shows us “magic tricks” in his series of quick-cut videos. He makes magic of mundane tasks like dressing up in the morning, frying breakfast, making money, getting into locked cars, and readying himself for bedtime.
Inspired by Hermann Rorschach and his famous inkblot test, French photographer Nicolas Rivals creates a striking series of light paintings called Light Rorschach. Rivals burns steel wool, spins it around and around, and captures the light streaks reflected against a body of water. See the symmetrical results after the jump.
Good news everyone! DeviantART user Unrellius spent the better part of a year creating a monumental cast image for one of the greatest cartoons ever made. The vast 5056×3576 pixel imagine contains just about every character from the 140 episodes that aired over the seven seasons of Futurama.
See the full image on DeviantART. If you have as many eyes as the Purple fruit snake from Vergon 6, you may just be able to spot Waldo.
How well do you know your aye-aye peepee from an aye-aye teetee? In this episode of True Facts, Ze Frank introduces us to a nocturnal primate with a rather creepy middle finger.

Space is big. Really big. It would take a gargantuan trek of 21.24 billion kilometres for you to reach the outer edges of our solar system, and a further 435 sextillion (that’s 10 to the power of 21!) kilometres to reach the furthest region of the observable universe. There is so much to explore but what we’ve seen so far has been incredibly beautiful.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory keeps an extensive catalogue of cosmic images taken by the various spacecraft up in the heavens. Here’s a small selection of our favourites space images taken in 2013.
The only things certain in life are death and taxes, or so the saying goes. However, in this animated short film, death isn’t such a sure thing as a trainee reaper rolls in to a ghost town to claim the soul of the last inhabitant. Check out what happens in Reaping for Dummies below.
Reaping for Dummies was created by a group of five students as a graduation project for the 3D design and animation course at the Idèfagskolen school in Tønsberg, Norway.

As you know, we here at Prawn Central LOVE us some LEGO games, so it’s with a lot of excitement that we got our grubby mitts on LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, the latest LEGO game from Travellers Tales. If you’ve played a LEGO game before, I doubt there’ll be much in this review that’s new to you, but I think you should read it anyhow, if only for the entertainment value. Excelsior!
While Ze Frank’s rather informative video made you rethink what you knew about hedgehogs, he neglected to mention that they are in fact the cutest things in the world. Case in point: Darcy the Flying Hedgehog.
Instagrammer/hedgehographer Shota Tsukamoto from Tokyo, Japan named his three-year-old hedgehog after D’arcy Wretzky, the former bass player of The Smashing Pumpkins. Despite the prickly origins of her name, Darcy’s most adorable nature is seen in the multitude of quirky scenes that Tsukamoto’s photographs her in. Have a look at some of our favourite photos of Darcy after the jump.
All fans of JRPGs, stick up your hands. Odds are, you lot were also fans of Final Fantasy at some point or another.
