The Scientific Hangover Cure

Hangovers are something everyone know about when they decide they’ll get some drinking on when they go out with friends on a Friday/Saturday night. Except for those who either don’t drink or have to drive others who do around. Now it’s all fun and such when the drinks are going. The mood is right and everyone’s having a great time […]

How Do Pain Relievers Work?

Lets throw in one of these informational posts in here, shall we. This time around we’ll talk about something that no one wants to experience but on the other hand we can be lucky that it’s there. I’m talking about pain. Without the feeling of pain, we would not know that something is wrong in some parts of our body. […]

How to Pronounce Uranus

How to Pronounce Uranus

Word pronunciation can be a tricky business sometimes. That’s mostly noticeable when you meet new people or discover new things. You know how things are spelled on paper but when you need to say those names and or thing out loud, you can make a rather significant mistake. That more so applies when you’re learning a new language and only […]

Awesome HD Slinky Slow-Mo

Awesome HD Slinky Slow-Mo

Here’s the deal. We had a couple of slow motion videos (because those are cool) and we also had a video featuring a slinky (those were cool too.) Now what would you say if I tell you that we’re going to combine the two and have a video about a slinky in slow motion? Hm? Sounds good, no? Well, there’s […]

We Are All Related – vsauce

We Are All Related - vsauce

Who do you think of, when you hear of the word family? Mother and father of course, sister or brother if you have any, your grand parents and maybe some aunts and uncles for good measure. Usually things come to a stop there, maybe someone is young enough to still have their great, great grandmother or father alive, but that’s […]

Ascending Aggies – PVAC Demonstration

Ascending Aggies - PVAC Demonstration

Here we have another gem that’s been invented at an engineering college in Utah. This time we’re not really talking about anything too ground breaking, but it’s still something that should’ve been done a long time ago. Many probably remember the old movies or cartoons, where its characters had to climb over a wall but had nothing to hold on […]

NASA | SDO's Ultra-high Definition View of 2012 Venus Transit

We’re staying  in space waters a bit more with this post. Err, space, spaces? Not waters. Anyway! There’s no denying that there’s a lot of stuff happening in space all the time. By that I mean ever single moment we think of, there’s something going on. Which is understandable since it is pretty darn big and majestic, how can it […]

Mars One introduction film – Living on mars in 2023

Mars One introduction film - Living on mars in 2023

Quite a bit of time has passed since man was given the opportunity to go out in space and land on the moon to have a little walk about. It’s been 40 years since that and it’s only logical that after all this time, the desire to set foot on another planet is growing strong. Of course there’s always that […]

How High Can We Build?

How High Can We Build?

What’s the highest thing you’ve ever stood on? How high was it? I’m sure many of you’ve been on Eiffel tower or some other high structure. The lucky ones of you have probably also been in Dubai and stood on the tallest building as of today. I can’t really imagine how it must feel to stand on one of those […]

#NobodyPayingAttention – May

#NobodyPayingAttention - May

I don’t remember talking to anyone lately, who would say that time isn’t passing by quickly. I mean just look at it, celebrating new year feels like it happened last week while in reality it was almost half a year ago. Even the 80’s feel like they happened 20 years ago. Time is passing by quickly, no doubt. Mostly due […]

Is Pluto a planet?

Is Pluto a planet?

Don’t we just love astronomy? I mean think about it, all those planets, moons and stars that surrounds us. There are so very many that there’s no way someone would be able to find us if they didn’t know where to look for. But for a common human being, 8 planets, a star and a moon are more than enough […]

MaKey MaKey – An Invention Kit for Everyone

MaKey MaKey - An Invention Kit for Everyone

It wasn’t long ago when I was saying in the post about the motion controlled input, that perhaps that is the future someday. Perhaps I didn’t think this one through since I mostly focused on the controller free input techniques. Now what if we turn that around a bit. As in completely and say that instead of having no physical […]

Introducing the Leap

Introducing the Leap

Computer technology has come a pretty darn long way when it comes to inputting certain commands to a machine. From simple on/off switches that presented ones and zeros, then do keyboards that were able to give so many more of the commands at once. Buttons were and still are the top notch technology when it comet to input it seems. […]

Okay, now honestly guys; how many of you did yawn just by reading the title of this post? I’m sure there were a few of you who did and a bit more who lied and said they didn’t! But do you actually have any idea why you yawned just by reading the title, or for that matter why didn’t you? […]
