Seeker of amazing stuff, seek no more for ye have found it.

Amazing Stuff is an ever-expanding virtual exhibition of all the amazing stuff to be found in the world and on the web. It opened to the public in 2011.

The exhibition is divided into two sections:

Amazing Stuff – The main exhibits that absolutely cannot be ignored. With a combination of videos and images, these aim to inform about unique and amazing aspects of the world which we hope will be new to you.

Amazing Videos – A steady stream of the latest amazing videos to hit the web to make sure you don’t miss out. These videos usually don’t need much explanation or may relate to something we’ve already featured on Amazing Stuff, but each one is still hand-picked by us to ensure that only the most amazing ones get through.

Selection criteria

Although there are no hard and fast rules, Amazing Stuff tends to be:

Totally unique, like Felix’s machines
Little-known, like the pink lake in Senegal
Cutting-edge, like the mind-controlled wheelchair
Visually impressive, like these slow motion stunts
Extreme, like the man who swam the Amazon

Amazing Stuff is curated by Duncan and Oki, who roam the fibre optic forests from Newcastle-upon-Tyne (UK).
