Some Incredible Coke + Mentos

It’s simply fun to watch.  I don’t know what the world record is.  Or why he’s using Nutella.  All I do know is that it was a joy to watch a grown man have that much excitement.  The video is way better then the reddit gif originally makes it out to be.

This isn’t Necessary

Marketing people never stop amazing you do they.  The those from Coca-Cola Israel released a short lived marketing gimmick camera that attaches to the bottom of a standard Coca-Cola bottle.  It takes a photo whenever it detects a change in tilt of at least 70°.  That photo is a selfie.  It’s interesting, but as I said, unnecessary.

1 Trillion Frames per Second

Light is the fastest thing we currently know about.  It travels at 6.7 times 10 to the 8 miles per hour.  That’s fast.  Wicked fast.  Researchers at MIT have come up with a  hardware and software camera that can record at 1 trillion frames per second.  By firing a laser for less than a trillionth of a second, they are able to watch the light travel over time and illuminate objects.

The still life photograph was nice, but I really like the coke bottle one.  One of the interesting side effects of this is because of the hyper speed of the camera, the distance the photons of light have to travel relative to the camera sensor is important.  You see this towards the end with the colorized wave image of the coke bottle.  That’s where the software comes in.  They have to modify the resulting image so that the waves are in the right order chronologically.

Pretty neat.  One of the few TED talks I’ve been able to make it through all the way (partly because it’s only 10 minutes) and understand everything they said in.  You should watch it.

Coke Shotglass

If you ever wanted an edible shotglass made of coke, this video is for you:

Honestly, the rubberness of it looks weird to me.  I would prefer if it were frozen.  It would probably feel better while you drink from it.  The glass wouldn’t last long, but that’s the idea I bet.  How would warm gelatiny coke taste?  Probably strange.

Stumble Apocalypse

This will end up being the last Stumble post of the year.  I used to have one a month, but sadly, Stumbleupon isn’t what it used to be, and isn’t something that I stay up all night doing anymore.  Many of these pictures come from Imgur, and Reddit now, but I still mix in some stumbles, because it’s still a great way to kill time.

So let’s get down to it, here are you guys ready for another dose of stumbles?

Stumbleing

It’s been long overdue or something, but here is the latest in what could be a long awaited list of wrong stumbles around the internets.  As always its full of the usual memes, gifs, Nazis, 4chan, motivationals, and other general internet shenanigans.  I could write some more, but I am electing to just go ahead and move onto the finals so now:

Get motivated!
