This is a video about the potential use of a remotely operated robotic system developed by the Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials that could collect COVID-19 test samples without the risk of exposure to a health care worker. Some more info about the system while I painfully reminisce about
This is a video of chemical engineer James Orgill of The Action Lab producing what he’s dubbed dry slime — slime that has been mixed with fumed silica (available on Amazon — often used as a thickener and anticaking agent) so it forms strings that don’t want to stick to
Because some people still believe in the respectable pursuit of knowledge gained from performing well-crafted scientific experiments, this is a video of a man in a laundry basket wearing a children’s safety helmet testing the 1MPH – 9MPH speed settings on his treadmill. Honestly, I think 7MPH looked the funnest.
This is ‘A Decade Of Sun’, a timelapse of the sun using photos captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Each day of the past ten years is represented by a single second of footage, with 24 frames/second (each frame one real-time hour), for a total of 61-minutes of retina-melting
This is a video from Youtube channel The King Of Random of a bunch of nested balloons being popped and filmed in ultra slow motion. Could you even imagine watching this sort of ultra slow motion video as a king in medieval times? You’d swear there was so much sorcery
This is Starsounds, an ambient music track created by composer Brian Eno (who, FUN FACT: actually coined and popularized the term ambient music) using the infrasound acoustic waves stars produce, which have been sped up to be heard by human ears. That’s cool. You know what would be even cooler?
This is ‘A New View Of The Moon’, a worthwhile short created by filmmakers Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh, who brought a high-powered telescope to the sidewalks of Los Angeles and invited strangers to take an up-close glimpse of our natural satellite. Their reactions are great, and I’d be lying
This is a video of Youtuber PetTheDamnDog (I’m never not!) demonstrating how to suspend a full water bottle from the edge of a table using a length of rope and three toothpicks, with only one toothpick actually making contact with the table. So is this how bridges work? No clue.
