Man pulls real, cute kitten out of computer

A video that suddenly wafts about the Web shows a magician's expertise in one technical area -- video editing.

When you wake up on a Sunday morning to messages from readers that say: "You have to see this," there are a few potential reactions.

One: "Oh, someone's trying to get to write about their new, very slightly useless gizmo."

Two: "Spam."

Three: "This video could actually be worth seeing."

Grumpily clicking on "play" on this video posted to Digg, but originally to LiveLeak (and who knows where before that), I still feared the worst. It was entitled: "How to Pull a Live Cat Out of a Laptop."

What ensued were 7 minutes of really quite captivating video editing, even if the live cat appeared to emerge from a desktop screen, rather than a laptop.

Before the promised live cat emerged, a laptop was used as a waffle maker.

After the cuddly kitten comes to life, there's a whole series of set pieces in which this unnamed performer manages to levitate an iPhone and turns it into a juice dispenser and a popcorn cooker. He also turns a juice bottle into a candy bottle.

It's all perfectly immature amusement, but sometimes that can make a significant contribution to life.

I do wonder, though, how many hours this gentleman took to create his opus, and whether he is a start-up CEO in his spare time.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
