Why aren’t you watching the MarbleLympics?

0

Event 9 just went live and if anything, these games have proven to be a shocker!  As much of a fan of real life curling I am, I couldn’t watch the Marblelympics version.  It was just too boring.  I’m sorry. However, the other 8 events are quite engaging, you should skip around the playlist, watch … Continued

Blue Marble Machine

0

That was pretty neat.  Apparently, it took him 3 months to make that.  I can see why.  All the resetting, and rejiggering and accidentally bumping things.  It’s madness, but also pretty ace.

Skyline Shades

0

The Ukraine company HoleRoll has these ace blackout blinds for windows.  Through (I assume) laser cutting fabric and material, you get a gorgeous shadow/lightbox view of either the Manhattan Skyline, the London Skyline, or the general night sky.  Unfortunately, the prices are quite high – $178 for one pane of the panel.  That’s the base … Continued

Would you like a Kool Kandy Kane?

0

Candy Canes are a traditional Christmas delicacy.  And I use the word delicacy lightly.  It’s not exactly rare.  It is one of those things though that you really only see at one time of the year.  If you ever wondered how they are made, here are a series of videos curtesy of MAKE that show … Continued

Crazy Difficult Time-Lapse of NYC

0

Julian Tryba has a pretty neat Time-Lapse, or layer-lapse as they call it, of New York City: I admit, that was pretty ace.  Each scene in the video has as many as 300 different layers, all being independently turned on and off to the beat of the music.  A time-lapse done well to music is … Continued

The 2017 MarbleLympics

0

I stumbled on the qualification round for the 2017 MarbleLympics last night.  I proceeded to watch the first 4 events before I realized the time.  This morning I finished the entire games.  What a rush of excitement it was.  I won’t give many spoilers, except to say that there were plenty of upsets and new … Continued

Trick Pool Shot

0

Technically, this was Snooker, not that it really matters that much, this was an incredible shot.  I think I’m equally impressed with the amount of room that this pool hall has.  I lost count of the number of tables visible, but it seemed like quite a set up.  Another thing that always amazes me is … Continued

Rt. 1

0

An intrepid designer built Route 1 from the original Pokemon games (possibly from Gold/Silver, not Red/Blue).  I like the various touches of trainers, and “wild” Pokemon that appear throughout the level. Pokemon was something of a revolution back in the day.  I remember my first time I beat the Elite Four.  I was so nervous … Continued

Some of the Eclipse

0

Here’s some 360° video of this Monday’s total Solar Eclipse.  Witnessing this event in person was amazing.  We drove 16 hours down to Greenville South Carolina only to be stuck in clouds. Not to worry though, because that was a major fear of ours, we were prepared and rushed in the opposite direction of the … Continued

Rocket Engine Underwater

0

When I was a kid I loved launching model rockets.  I spent many hours building them from kits, and wrapping paper tubes, and newspaper, and one even from a cardboard tube that a rug was in.  That was a fun one, we put an “F” type engine in it, there was so much black smoke … Continued
