Magnetic Attraction

0

Science is so cool.  Did you know that?  I can’t imagine what I would have done with things like this when I was a kid.  As far as I would have been concerned, it was magic.  And when you think about it, magnets are kinda magical aren’t they? {reddit}

Crazy Tesla Coil Gun

0

Ok, last time there was a LASER Gun, today it’s a Tesla Coil.  It’s ridiculous.  The Tesla Coil is not quite as dangerous, but also completely terrifyingly dangerous, science is weird like that.  Anyway, this channel is pretty neat, you should watch it to learn more about things. {reddit}

Super LASER

There’s really no need for this, but like a good America, it had to be made.  I don’t know if he’s American, but it doesn’t matter, this is American to the core. I need one. {reddit}

Contact Shot

0

Everyday you learn something new.  I remember watching Contact many many times, but not being a cinematographer, or really anyone with an eye for filmography, I never paid too much attention to some of the great camera work in the film.  So, that being said here’s a behind the scenes commentary on how the scene … Continued

A 360° View of The F-35

0

This is a pretty good video that goes over some of the advanced features of the new fifth-generation fighter, the F-35: It’s a nice video, the beginning of it doesn’t really merit a 360° video, but it’s still cool.  There’s alot of 35,000 foot type view information given of the different systems and how they … Continued

The Wind in Real Time

Real time data, weather data, it’s all interesting isn’t it? On Nullschool.net you can explore real time wind data and watch weather patterns form.  It’s pretty neat if I do say so myself.  Check it out if you can, I am. {nullschool|reddit}

Wine Cooled PC

0

You can file this under the folder of “why?”, but someone decided to make a liquid cooled PC, which instead of using water, or coolant, they used wine.  Yes, they now can serve warm mulled wine to guests 60°C in a few hours.  I don’t drink Mulled Wine, but according to them, that’s the perfect … Continued

Yes, Water does spin backwards in Australia

I just thought that you should know that.  Yes it’s not that scientific of a test, and yes all the theoretical math and science should answer the question for you, but I thought you should know for yourself by watching this six minute video.  Don’t say I never did anything for you.

What happens when you Breath In Noble Gas

0

Crazy things.  Of course you know that helium gives you chipmunk voice. The others get surprising.  I think my favorite is Xenon, “It almost feels like it’s attracted to the ground”. It should be noted that this is something you should never do as they very likely can kill you if done in excess and … Continued

LEGO Engineering + Science

0

It’s always fun watching people push LEGO to the limits.  Here you can get a crash course in gear reduction and how to generate torque.  It’s interesting to see the differences in weights that can be lifted.  And it soon becomes apparent that the limitations aren’t in the gearing, or the motor, it’s the other … Continued
