  5. Watch 100 Years Worth Of Mainstream Hair and Makeup Styles In One Minute

    How accurate is it, costume nerds?

    On the one hand, everybody knows that fashion evolution is too complicated to be broken down decade by decade, to say nothing of how these sorts of videos usually favor the dominant and mainstream modes of style over that of marginalized communities and counterculture. On the other hand, hellooooo hair porn. Sometimes you just wanna watch somebody go from victory curls to crimped ponytails in under 60 seconds, y'know?

  6. Three Years of Selfies Create One Really Impressive Time-Lapse Lip Sync [Video]

    Can we end the "selfie olympics" now? This kid wins gold, silver, and bronze.

    A UK teen took a picture of himself every day for three years to create a time-lapse video for Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now." He wound up with a pretty amazing result, but we're a bit preoccupied with the fact that he just happened to post the multi-year project during the selfie olympics. Is he on some kind of Queen-themed time traveling mission?

  9. Tortoise Eats The Heck Outta This Salad, Mercifully Time Lapsed [Video]

    Proving that you can make anything interesting by time lapsing it and slapping some cliche dramatic music on top, Matthew Hoyos' video of a tortoise eating fruits and veggies is a real treat. At this speed, that tortoise is a terrifying eating machine with a vegetarian diet. As fun as the video is, I ache to know how long it took the tortoise to get through his meal in regular time.

  10. Beautiful Time Lapse Film Captures the Very Large Array as It Scans the Skies

    For those unaware, the Very Large Array is a collection of radio telescopes out in the desert near Socorro, New Mexico. With it, scientists are able to probe the edges of the universe, and witness amazing sites invisible to the eye. It was also a critical set piece in the film Contact, and what's more, the sight of all those radio antennas pointing skyward is more than a little iconic. Using time lapse photography and motion graphics, film maker Douglas Koke lets the amazing telescopes take center stage in his short film Signal to Noise. It's a pretty amazing look at an astounding piece of human ingenuity.

  12. ISS Passes Over African Storms While the Milky Way Rises [Video]

  13. 30-Story Building Built in 15 Days [Video]

    The Chinese construction company Broad Group have one-upped their previous record of building 15 stories in one week with this 30 story hotel built in just 15 days. Erected near Dongting lake, in Hunan Province, the hotel was assembled from pre-fabricated sections shipped to the work site. The finished product has all the comforts you'd expect from a modern hotel, and is also expected to be extremely earthquake resistant thanks to its unique design. Of course, one wonders how "complete" the building is with that crane still standing in the middle of it. Read on after the break for a longer, more in-depth look at this lightning fast construction project.

    Japan is rebuilding a life-size RX-78-2 Gundam that stood in the artificial island of Odaiba back in 2009. Relocating the Gundam to Tokyo, the series of videos seen below the break cover the construction of the Gundam, in a convenient, time-lapse format. Luckily for the human population of the world, the Gundam doesn't function as a real one, and is simply an intricate statue.

  15. Time Lapse: Manhattan in Motion [Video]

    Josh Owens' time lapse video of New York has confirmed that I will never, ever, get sick of time lapse videos. This one is particularly fun, since it captures the little details: Buildings blink like 1950s computer mainframes, an office party blunders onward, and elevators bounce like pogo sticks. Watch and enjoy. (via Laughing Squid)

  17. Time-Lapse of Building a LEGO Ship in a Bottle [Video]

    MOCpages user Julia Morley decided to build a LEGO ship in a bottle, mainly because how cool is that. She bought a $7 jug of wine (which she poured down the sink due to it supposedly being awful to drink), filled the bottom of the bottle with glass beads and floral resin in order to create a flat surface on which to work, and made some tools to aid in the ship-imprisoning process. She used LEGO design program Bricksmith to design the ship, then devised a plan to build the ship back-to-front with LEGOs that would fit into the bottle. Being fully aware of the kind of digital voyeur world in which she lives, Morley documented the process with a time-lapse video and posted it for all to see. As the beginning of the video states, the "project took a week of planning, three days of building, a large number of expletives, and some interesting use of very long tools." Head on past the break to see the custom tools Morley made in order to build encase a LEGO ship in a bottle.

  20. Time-Lapse Volcano Eruption [Video]

    The above is a time-lapse video of the inner workings of Mount Kilauea, a Hawaiian volcano that is one of the most active in the world. The scenes were captured this year between February 15 and March 6, featuring general laval flow and volcano walls breaking off and collapsing into the fiery crater. According to the US Geological Survey, one crater in the volcano houses a lake of lava two-hundred meters deep. Reports estimate that the eruption has caused about 150 detectable earthquakes, but luckily, locals aren't in danger. 200 meters deep of lava and 150 earthquakes add up to 350 scary things, by the way.
