On Thursday 15 February 2024, OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman unveiled the artificial intelligence research organisation’s latest AI tool, Sora, which, using nothing more than a brief text prompt, can create videos up to 60 seconds long so realistic that the average person would struggle to guess they were generated by a computer. Scary, right?

Though the video generator, which succeeds OpenAI’s infamous ChatGPT and its more advanced version GPT-4, has not been officially released yet, it’s already been made available to “red teamers to assess critical areas for harms or risks” and a “number of visual artists, designers, and filmmakers to gain feedback on how to advance the model to be most helpful for creative professionals.”

This has led to a number of mind-blowing videos made using Sora to appear online and, to be honest, some of them are so terrifyingly good that SCREENSHOT had to round up the most intriguing examples found on X (formerly Twitter):

Most of the videos shared were put out by OpenAI itself but CEO Sam Altman was also taking prompt requests such as the one above showing “a bicycle race on ocean with different animals as athletes riding the bicycles with drone camera view.” Pretty cool.

Plenty more example videos are around as seen below. Interestingly, many (if not all of them) are slowed down.
