From filmmaker Virgilio VilloresiUna Giornata Perfetta (A Perfect Day), a stop-motion and rotoscope-driven music video for Italian singer/songwriter Vinicio Capossela. Though it was animated in 2009 by Virgilio Villoresi, Cossignani Carlo, and Piero Tonin, the video hearkens back to a few decades earlier, featuring typewriters, record players, pop-up books, and other quirky but charming bric-a-brac from earlier generations.

Cold ice cream inside a warm brioche: this treat is called an oxymoron, which is a word that means “a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms.” Sounds delicious, but what’s this gadget assembling itself in the video above? Why, that’s an Oxymoron Maker designed by Andreu Carulla.

In the archives: a lawn chair assembles itself, Todd McLellan’s Things Come Apart, more stop motion, and so many videos about how things are made.

DIY experiments and videos are two of our favorite things, so we were thrilled to hear about GE’s Six Second Science Fair. The week-long celebration resulted in over 600 submitted projects, and GE’s compilation video, via jtotheizzoe, includes a wide variety of shared experiments from kids and adults alike.

It’s fun to watch, but it’s also an excellent resource for checking out science experiments (like these) that you can do yourself. We’re definitely inspired to try a few…

How much science can you fit into 6 seconds?

Update: from Joe at It’s Okay to Be Smart, here’s a list of all of the experiments explained, including some links to instructions.
