PIZZA + MATH = MORE PIZZA!!!

AsapSCIENCE breaks down the math of pizza and explains how to get the maximum amount of pizza for the least amount of money by always ordering the largest size possible. Diners get more total pizza area than they may realize by order larger sizes.   On their AsapTHOUGHT channel, hosts Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown were joined by Sara Lynn Cauchon the Domestic Geek to explain … Continue reading PIZZA + MATH = MORE PIZZA!!!

SO THIS IS HAPPENING – Remote Controlled Live Insects

So it looks like this is really  happening… Humans remote controlling insects! A group of engineers and scientists has come up with a way to remotely control insects, which they believe could provide an “improved alternative to remote-controlled drones“. The teams from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the University of California Berkley created the insect-computer hybrid robot using a living beetle. They inserted electrodes at specific parts of the beetles’ … Continue reading SO THIS IS HAPPENING – Remote Controlled Live Insects

WATCHING A MATCH BURN IN ULTRA-SLOWMO IS HYPNOTIC

It’s usually over in an instant, but when you capture macro footage of a match head igniting at 4,000 frames per second, suddenly that almost instantaneous event becomes a fascinating look into the science of fire and ignition. And believe it or not, YouTuber UltraSlo had to throw an additional 2,000 watts of light on this match head to capture this mesmerizing footage—that’s a lot … Continue reading WATCHING A MATCH BURN IN ULTRA-SLOWMO IS HYPNOTIC

5 COOL WAYS TO PUT OUT A CANDLE…and learning something

We all know how to blow out a candle, but why do that, when you can learn so much about physics by getting a little creative with your flame-extinguishing methods? As Physics Girl shows us in her latest video, there are a whole heap of experiments you can do with a candle to show off the power of fluid dynamics, invisible chemistry, and, yes, even … Continue reading 5 COOL WAYS TO PUT OUT A CANDLE…and learning something

3D PRINTING CARTILIDGE AND MUSCLE IS NOW POSSIBLE

A team of biomedical researchers at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine has just completed an invention 10 years in the making. It’s a 3D printer that can craft relatively simple tissues like cartilage into large complex shapes—like an infant’s ear. Using cartridges that are brimming with biodegradable plastic and human cells bound up in gel, this new kind of 3D printer builds complex chunks … Continue reading 3D PRINTING CARTILIDGE AND MUSCLE IS NOW POSSIBLE
