While any kind of heavy-duty factory machinery is inherently interesting to engineers, there is something particularly awesome about a video sequence that's captioned with "Automatically aligning the mushrooms". Set to trance music.

trying out plex in place of boxee for managing media on my tv-mac-mini. looks pretty nice, especially the media server bridge for itunes (no need to reindex 25k mp3s this time). just wish the media server would allow your indexed catalog to be a source for another machine, so that my media server can index everything and my tv-box and laptops just act as thin clients
