I love PBS and this fan-made PBS superhero movie trailer with Carl Sagan, Mr. Rogers, Bob Ross, and Bill Nye is just plain awesome:
I found a really interesting YouTube channel today where a blind man named Tommy Edison sheds light (har har) on what it’s like to be blind. His video about colors is below:
This is an amazing documentary about the research computer scientists are doing on slime mold. They are using the slime mold to solve maze and networking problems and even operate robots.
In one experiment, oat flakes were placed on a dish to represent the major cities around Tokyo and the slime mold was placed in the corresponding location for Tokyo. The mold created a network between the oat flakes that was strikingly similar to Tokyo’s rail system. My complaint about the experiment was that it did not seem to take topography into consideration, but I looked into it and they used light to simulate mountains, water, and other obstacles. Neat!
This video is a pretty cool tribute to PBS‘s Mister Rogers:
Someone named Bigre created a pretty cool falling puzzle game called “The Dropper” for Minecraft and a couple people recorded themselves trying it out in the video below. In the falling puzzle game, you start out very high up on the map and the floor drops out beneath you. The goal is to survive the fall without breaking blocks.
Eee! I can’t wait until Christmas… next year! :xp: The Hobbit is going to be released December 14, 2012 (just in time for the end of the world, har har). I’m so excited!
I’m feeling a bit like this (terribly cute!) sloth today. 😉
