Watch: Amazing HD Footage of Mars Landing, Google Glasses, and Is This the Coolest Music Video Ever?

Sep 14, 2012

Welcome to Morning Watch, our daily roundup of funny/interesting/bizarre/creative/informative videos for you to start your day with.


One guy was frustrated with the choppy, low-res video taken from the Curiosity's buzzed-about landing on Mars, and so he spent a month painstakingly transforming the video into beautiful high resolution with sound. This footage will now likely become the cleanest video we've ever seen of another planet in our solar system. [Mashable]

Behold the first short film created entirely with Google Glasses, which aren't due out on the market until 2014, but are beginning to show brief glimpses of the way they may change our lives in videos like this one, shot recently during New York's Fashion Week. Watch as designers and models are fitted with Google Glasses so that they can record their experiences. Maybe you should put that iPhone 5 money aside for a pair of these instead. [Flavorwire]

Finally, check out this freaky music video for the Belgium indie band Willow. Filmmaker Filip Sterckx pushes the boundaries of how much you can accomplish visually with one actor inside a tiny box by demonstrating the illusion of movement using 3D projection mapping. Design Taxi asks whether this is the coolest music video ever, and we'll let you decide after watching it below. [Design Taxi]
