Viral video week in review (Oct. 29 - Nov. 4)

Halloween videos and science stuff dominated the week in cool IT video


First, there was a video by Youtuber MinutePhysics that did an animated video showing how you can break the speed of light with a laser pointer.

Then there was another science-related video from YouTuber vsauce explaining how "The Internet" weighs about as much as a strawberry.

Finally, we saw this video from NASA that explained how they could soon be developing a real-life tractor beam:

Other stuff that grabbed my attention this week:

* New trailers for Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol and Grand Theft Auto V hit the web.

* Doctor Who encyclopedia gets an iPad app.

* Nintendo reminds me why dads and sons shouldn't play video games together.

That's it for this week! If you want to find out about the latest videos as they hit the InterWebs, follow my RSS feed.
