By today’s standards it was ugly, it was slow, and it was primitive, but Windows 95 was the first operating system I mastered inside and out, and I’ll always have a soft spot for Microsoft’s most memorable PC OS. That can be the only explanation for why part of me would also love suffering through a mobile version of...

This Stop-Motion Lego Ghostbusters Remake Is Full of Delightful Cameos

This Stop-Motion Lego <i>Ghostbusters </i>Remake Is Full of Delightful Cameos

Lego and Ghostbusters is usually all it takes to get someone to watch your stop-motion animated film. But this short from Digital Wizards Studios—made from $100,000 worth of Lego bricks animated over 2,000 hours—also features numerous cameos from The Simpsons, Doctor Who, Batman, Star Wars, Marvel, and Scooby-Doo. It’s just too bad it’s only five minutes long.

Amusing Animations Stamped Onto Naked Bodies Give Me Strange Feelings

Amusing Animations Stamped Onto Naked Bodies Give Me Strange Feelings

Remember the last time you fell asleep on the couch and your TV remote left an imprint on your face? Taking inspiration from that, DBLG, a UK-based ad agency, produced an amusing series of animations by imprinting characters and objects directly onto human skin.

It’s an animation style you probably won’t see Disney copying anytime soon, but as unsettling as Hey Pressto occasionally is, it’s...

This Captivating Sci-Fi Short Film Was Randomly Generated By a Computer

This Captivating Sci-Fi Short Film Was Randomly Generated By a Computer

We wouldn’t blame you for thinking that Julius Horsthuis spent weeks designing and animating his sci-fi short, Fraktaal, using 3D software. But as the artist reveals, “It so happens that I’m a lazy animator.” So he instead relied on complex mathematical fractal patterns to automatically generate the alien worlds and cities visited in his film.

It’s a good thing Halloween only happens once a year, because cleaning out a pumpkin and carving a fun design (that’s hopefully better than your neighbor’s) can be pretty tedious. With that in mind, you’ll realize just how much work went into this stop-motion animation that was carved into countless pumpkins.

This Surreal Animation Lets You See the Sounds of Rainforest Birds

This Surreal Animation Lets You See the Sounds of Rainforest Birds

Synesthesia is a rare condition where experiencing one sense (like sound) triggers an involuntary experience of another sense (like vision). If you’ve never experienced this phenomenon yourself, this colorful abstract animation by Andy Thomas simulates what it’s like to visualize sounds.

Inspired by a recent trip to the Amazon, Thomas turned the unique and diverse sounds of the birds who live...

Try to Watch This Maddening Animation Without Getting Incredibly Frustrated

If you haven’t already learned that life is just a bunch of disappointments, this maddening animation by Mainframe will teach you that you don’t always get what you want. What you expect to happen in each of these vignettes never does, leaving you feeling empty, unfulfilled, and probably a little confused.

Watching Robots Stuck in Repetitive, Mundane Tasks Is Stressing Me Out

Watching Robots Stuck in Repetitive, Mundane Tasks Is Stressing Me Out

If you’re living under the assumption that your job could never be filled by a robot, think again. Your day-to-day routine might not seem as monotonous as the tasks that factory line robots perform, but as Michael Marczewski’s stressful short film Vicious Cycle asks, is it really?

Even activities like chopping wood or playing baseball are boiled down to their boring, monotonous essence in this...

Guy Gets a String of Tattoos Around His Body That Come to Life When He Spins Around

If you’re going to endure all the pain of getting a tattoo, you probably want to ensure that whatever’s being permanently etched on your body is unique and original. So instead of a heart with a dagger through it, why not get a series of animated figures that turn you into a living zoetrope?

First, a quick refresher: If you’ve ever visited a science center, you’ve probably experienced a...

A Mesmerizing Animation Shows Just How Weird Our Solar System Is

A Mesmerizing Animation Shows Just How Weird Our Solar System Is

NASA’s Kepler space telescope spotted thousands of worlds during its four-year mission, proving that our galaxy is filled with planets. But even more surprising is what the Kepler database highlights about our own solar system: namely, that we’re a bunch of celestial oddballs.

That fact is made obvious by Kepler Orrery IV, an animation produced by astronomy graduate student Ethan Kruse of the...

King of the Hill's Opening as a Video Game Is Pixel Perfect

<i>King of the Hill</i>'s Opening as a Video Game Is Pixel Perfect

King of the Hill, the most underrated of all of Fox’s animated series, gets a perfect pixelated tribute by Mauri Helme who re-animated the show’s entire opening as if it were a 16-bit video game. The Super Nintendo might be long gone, but we’d happily dust off our old consoles to play a game like this. “That’s my purse, I don’t know you!”
