Here’s a cute and surprisingly adorable video of cameraman Garth De Bruno Austin being approached by a wild rhino, requesting a belly rub. A wild animal approaching a human is quite surprising, and if the animal happens to be a rhino things aren’t quite likely to end on a happy note like this one. As Austin pointed out, he has filmed this rhino for a few years and has developed a level of trust.
Why would you want to run 20,000 Volts through a watermelon? For science, of course. Creator of this video, TheBackyardScientist on YouTube, pumped 20,000 volts into a watermelon with the help of a capacitor.

The modulOne from PassivDom is quite an interesting house. Or, to be more accurate with the company’s description, “autonomous 3D-printed mobile house”. The Ukrainian company behind the house says it is “mobile and transportable house with Passive House parameters”. It is claimed that the thermal characteristics are high enough for the house to use 20 times less energy than an ordinary building. Of course, this comes in rather handy as autonomous function and off-grid living are the major selling points of this house.
Netherlands-based artist Jeroen van Kesteren has created this wonderful set of airships, for a series titled Orphanage for Lost Adventures.

The flying ships have been created over the last year, and each can take almost a month to complete.
How do things in the universe compare on the scale of size? Well, take a look at this video and be amazed. It starts with the fabric of space and time, goes on to the singularity of a black hole followed by quarks, protons, and eventually to stars, black holes and galaxies, superclusters and everything in between.
Checkout Fravel, the cute suitcase that would love to be your pet. The bag has a cat-like shape, accented by its ears, which respond to touch. You can pet your suitcase, and she’ll respond by moving her squishy, jelly-like ears. On the bottom of the luggage is a little heart that beats (rather, blinks) faster when you take her out for your journey.
The movie will be on theaters on June 2.
