How to make an Academic Poster – Introduction (Tutorial part 1)

Hello everyone, and welcome to the new inDesign tutorial series. In this series I will be teaching you how to make academic posters with InDesign CS6. If you go to conferences as a scientist or engineer you often need to bring your own poster to present your research. I think most people don’t really enjoy […]

FLYING PHONE SCAM EXPOSED (so I built a REAL one)

FLYING PHONE SCAM EXPOSED (so I built a REAL one)

I saw this video on Twitter with over five million views and then again on YouTube with nearly 1 million views Basically, this guy modified his cellphone case with propellers to take selfies Which is awesome my only issue with it is that it’s not only fake, but it’s a scam which I’ll explain in […]

The most unexpected answer to a counting puzzle

The most unexpected answer to a counting puzzle

Sometimes math and physics conspire in ways that feel too good to be true. Let’s play a strange sort of mathematical Croquet. We’ll have two sliding blocks and a wall. The first block starts by coming in at some velocity from the right, while the second starts out stationary. Being overly-idealistic physicists, let’s assume that […]

Are perpetual motion machines possible?

Are perpetual motion machines possible?

[MUSIC PLAYING] What if I told you I built a machine that creates energy? My ingenious design works like this. As the wheel turns, the coins fall in the slots so that one side of the wheel is always heavier than the other, which would keep pulling that side down, and the wheel would never […]

What If Humans Disappeared?

What If Humans Disappeared?

The first few weeks would be chaotic. Within hours, power plants would run out of fuel and shut down. As lights go out and electric fences lose their […]

Animals come in pretty much every color, but blue seems to be the rarest. What’s cool, though, is when we do find a blue animal, they’re awesome looking. Nature doesn’t do halfway […]

Why graphene hasn’t taken over the world…yet

Why graphene hasn’t taken over the world…yet

– [Cory] It may not look like it, but I’m creating one of the strongest and most versatile materials on Earth, graphene. You’ve probably heard buzz about it. Graphene made big waves back in 2004, and it’s knocked around science news ever since. – A global race for graphene. – You know, it’s not just […]

CARNIVAL SCAM SCIENCE- and how to win

CARNIVAL SCAM SCIENCE- and how to win

11 feet, 11 feet. It’s no secret that carnivals exist to make money And to do this most effectively, they do a bunch of little tricks to make you overestimate your chances of winning in some cases to such an extent that it’s basically a scam. So I spent a couple days coming down to […]

Seeing the Smallest Thing in the Universe

Seeing the Smallest Thing in the Universe

Have you ever looked through a microscope? It’s a very different world from ours. But this is what makes up our world. Those are cells in your lungs. Well, that makes you wonder what makes of this world? What would it look like if you zoomed in even farther to the individual molecules that make […]
