The New and Improved VideoSift

The new VideoSift is here, and the community-based video aggregator is better than ever!

There was quite a bit of improvement "under the hood," with a new custom software written specifically for the site and new servers to handle the load. Visitors will immediately notice the streamlined look, thumbnail preview of the video clips, and a longer list of clips per page.

Congrats to the VideoSift folks who did an excellent job (I know how hard it is to move a site, let alone upgrading a content management system!).

All right, let's take a look at a few of the coolest videos playing on the 'Sift:





















Bubbles in Space
What happen if you pop a tab of Alka-Seltzer in a floating ball of water in zero g? Astronaut Don Pettit did the experiment onboard the International Space Station.

Jackie Chan's Ten Greatest Bloopers
Famous for doing his own stunts, Jackie Chan has gotten injured. A lot.

And of course, these mishaps were captured on film, and then shown as bloopers at the end of his movies: Link (Is there a bone this man hasn't broken yet?)

HAL Returns (as Hybrid Assisted Limbs)
This mobile suit, developed by Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai of Tsukuba University, Japan, allows its wearer to boost the weight he or she can normally lift by a factor of 10!

Amazing Hand Puppetry
Raymond Crowe is truly a master at hand puppetry - you just have to see for yourself:

Police! Open Up!
Kicking down a door is a LOT harder than it looks like in the movies, as this police officer found out!
