Amazing Short Film - The Centrifuge Brain Project

19 July 2013 1:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Comic-Con did a little something different this year in Hall H and showed a collection of short films gathered from around the world. Out of all the films they ended up showing this was my favorite, and I can guarantee it's going to entertain the hell out of you!  

The short is called The Centrifuge Brain Project. It was created by Till Nowak of Frambox Digital, and it gives us some insight on some insane scientific experiments with amusement park rides. Enjoy the show!
