Here’s further proof that everything and anything looks cool in super slow motion. From The Slow Mo Guys comes this incredible 2500fps (that’s “frames per second,” y’all) look at paint splashing about on a run-of-the-mill boombox speaker.
How much do you know about owls? Not enough, I’d wager. Well, thanks to this short, informative clip from zefrank1, you’ll have a greater knowledge of these silent, majestic birds of prey. Pay attention–you just might learn something!
Good ol’ industrial videos: sometimes they’re informative, sometimes they look cool… and sometimes, as in this video from KukaRobotGroup, they’re BOTH! This clip demonstrates the plasma spray coating process performed in a vacuum by a robot. (That sentence just gets better and better as you go, doesn’t it?) Plasma spray (also called “plasma electric arc,” […]
If you had asked me two minutes and three seconds ago if it were possible to drill a square hole, I would have said, “No way, Jose. Get out of here–I have no time for your foolishness.” Then this video from Ozzy Mozzy came along, and am I a-singin’ a different tune. Enjoy! PS: Sorry […]
Today’s Video Worthy video comes to us from zincere80. In it, he describes his proposed designed for an air-pollution sorbent trap probe. What the heck does all that mean, you ask? Well, sorbents are materials that can be used in the exhaust stacks (a.k.a. smokestacks) of industrial manufacturing facilities to catch pollutants and filter them […]
Another good ol’ Russian dash cam video here, courtesy of Jay Patterson. It’s hard to say exactly what causes the accident that leads to this fiery inferno, but it’s pretty obvious that high pressure gas cylinders, especially those with flammable contents (hence the “hazmat” in the title) are not to be messed with. Danger! Danger!
So, technology, right? Without it, we wouldn’t have fish on wheels, as seen in this video from Studio diip. Most of the technical jargon involved is explained in the video, so be careful–you just might learn something!
This advert for Sony’s waterproof Walkman solves the problem many folks have with supposedly-waterproof electronic devices: It may say it’s waterproof, but how do you really know until you try it? Stick it in a bottle of water to begin with, of course. Brilliant! Thanks to StopPress for the source post.
Today’s Video Worthy video comes to us from juikuowu. Clearly filmed with a smart phone–because why else would it be shot in portrait instead of landscape?*–it shows smart phones being manufactured. Or part of the manufacturing process, anyway: specifically insert molding, where liquified plastic or rubber is injected into a mold over/around a metal part. […]
Way back in Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-One, hardly anyone had heard of the internet, because it barely existed. This old-timey news report from KRON-TV in San Francisco shows just how far the magical series of tubes we all count on has come in 30+ years. Thanks to Earthweek for the source post. Enjoy!
