Friday Links!

From Griffin Cheng, and this is stunning: The First-Ever Images of Atoms Moving Inside a Molecule. Next, and don't be deceived by the title, because these are spectacular: Dew-covered insects. One more, and I've always wondered about this: how a spider walks without sticking to its own web. One more, and this is very, very clever: how to build a speech-jamming gun.

From Steven Davis, and this is entirely surreal: A mind-melting animation. Also, and this is quite wonderful, it's Film featuring the modern automata of David Secrett. Here's one more related to automata, and it's equally fascinating: Profile of the Jaquet-Droz: master watch, clock, and automata makers.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and you are required by space law to go watch this: Absolutely mindblowing video shot from the Space Shuttle during launch.

From Mark Lahren, and if you enjoy the history of music, you'll love this: Classic Tracks. It's the story behind some of the famous tracks in history.

From Daniel Willhite, and this is a wonderful blast from the past: Highway Hi-Fi Phonograph.

From Robert McMillon, and these are incredibly clever, it's posed ant photography.

From Kadunta, and I don't know why anyone is surprised: Sexually Rejected Flies Turn to Booze.

From Michael M., and this would be incredible if successful: Iceland plans to turn excess carbon into stone .

From Daniel James, and this is one of the cleverest advertisments I've ever seen: Guardian open journalism: Three Little Pigs.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and you have to see this to believe it: Mr. Trololo.

Here's your "the future is stranger than we can imagine" patent of the day: haptic tattoos.
