Steampunk theremin goggles
A wicked build by [Sarah] - theremin steampunk goggles. Photo sensor  will feel the amount of light and the slider would adjust the pitch of the sound produced. Check out the demo video!
AK-47 Underwater at 27,450 frames per second
Shooting a gun underwater in slow motion is (unsurprisingly) hypnotizing stuff, and the comments explain the physics of the process too.
Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter - AHS Sikorsky Prize Flight
Constructed by the team AeroVelo from University of Toronto, the human-powered helicopter won the Sikorsky prize. Ivan Sikorsky was a Ukrainian aviator who was inspired by Leonardo's flying machines early on. And doesn't this helicopter look like one? Also check out the same team's Snow Bird Ornithopter video too.
Urban Species: Kinetic Lifeforms Created by U-Ram Choe
Korean artist U-Ram Choe treats his kinetic sculptures like living beings, stating that they have their own life cycle. Indeed, they are as complex as living forms, and they come with a manual to extend their life cycle!

OpenReflex -a 3D printed analog camera by Léo Marius. Made out of a surprisingly small amount of simple parts, it is compatible with any photographic lens with custom mount ring, prints in 15 hours and assembles in about 1.
