  1. 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?

  2. 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?

  3. Here’s How to Get a Space Shuttle Off of an Airplane [Video]

    We've already seen the Space Shuttle Enterprise preparing for its flight on the back of a modified Boeing 747, and we've even seen it in the air over New York City. Now, here's a time lapse peek into what it took to get Enterprise off its piggyback carrier. Of course, this orbiter's journey isn't quite over yet. It's still got a barge ride to its final home at the Intrepid Air and Space museum on the Hudson river.

  4. The Milky Way and Aurora Rise Over South Dakota [Video]

    Just a quick reminder from filmmaker Randy Halverson: The universe is a beautiful, wonderful place. Or at the very least, South Dakota looks pretty great in a long-exposure time lapse video.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

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

    This all too brief time lapse video from the International Space Station shows our home planet with storms sparking over Africa. It's a breathtaking, if humbling, view, made all the more so by the enormous Milky Way galaxy rising behind Earth. Just a little reminder of how staggeringly huge and beautiful the universe is and how small we are.

  9. 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.

  10. Time-Lapse Construction of Life-Size Gundam in Japan

    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.
