Watch An Orange Explode at 62,000 FPS


For no reason whatsoever, you can now watch an orange explode at a frame rate that truly captures all of the pulpy chaos.

Brought to us by Slo Mo Lab, the orange is loaded with a small firework, and the explosion is filmed at 62,000 FPS. For those who have no idea what that means, it’s OK.

Just know that the camera used to do this is very expensive, and the filmmaker protected it from the explosion with a plastic Wal-Mart bag. Please enjoy.

Pizza Condoms Deliver


It’s been said that sex is like pizza… Even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good. Now, thanks to a packaging concept by Russian designer Marina Malygina, the two have officially been combined. And it’s not bad.

The Pizza Condom is wrapped in what looks like a pizza with the works. And, to reinforce the theme, the condom is then housed in a small delivery box. How good your pizza will be, is completely up to the delivery boy.

The Light Inside, A Photo Series of Glowing Fruits and Vegetables


Brought to us by Romanian photographer Radu Zaciu, The Light Inside is a wonderful photo series of glowing fruits and vegetables.

Created by placing a light source inside pieces of produce, the project was inspired by the German word for ‘lightbulb’ (glühbirne) — which translates to ‘glowing pear.’

The result is a surreal photo series that often resembles a painting, X-Ray, or planet. Check out more below, or over at Zaciu’s Flickr site.
