Strange and wonderful sights and sounds

You know that saying ‘truth is stranger than fiction’? It’s true, and real life sights and sounds are stranger and more beautiful than anything a computer could generate. Here’s 3 cool examples of that.

2. NASA on SoundCloud

3. Hang Drum Magic

Ever heard of a hang drum? Us neither, and they are kinda impossible to describe, so have a look at this video. Cute guys playing them too, which is a happy coincidence. The duo is called ‘Hang Massive’. For real…we’re just going to walk away from that one…
