Using the power of engineering and brilliant inventions to save lives!!! Great times collab-ing with Bill and Melinda Gates! You should check out the Gates Annual Letter here: http://b-gat.es/2lhhtmJ

Pre-order a paper microscope here- https://www.foldscope.com/order

Read the published paper on the paper centrifuge, its cool- http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016…

Summary: I met with Manu Prakash from Stanford to talk about 2 of his labs’ inventions the Foldscope and the Paperfuge. Combined these cost only 68 cents and they can be used to diagnose Malaria. Both of these are examples not only of simple, brilliant design, but of how engineering is used to make a positive dent in the world.

Extrapolate from johan rijpma on Vimeo.

In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement is causing deformation in a systematic but speculative way.

This work was created with support from ”Animation Artist in Residence Tokyo 2016” part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho) ”Project to invite overseas creators of media arts 2016” and the Mondriaan Fund.

Rocket Powered Fidget Spinner

By: TheBackyardScientist

Originally Published on May 30, 2017

Ok thats it, Fidget Spinner trend is over, cause this is the best one ever!! 😉 I built a custom fidget spinner out of 1/4in aluminum plate and strapped 3 E sized rocket engines.

Really, I just wanted to do this. I saw Stephens video and needed answers. Plus, this gave me an excuse to buy a Plasma Cutter ive been eyeballing for yearssss. (dont tell sandra I could have made this with a jigsaw..)

The spinner has a 6 inch radius, so it travels ~37 inches to make a full circle. Its spinning 88 times per second (5200 per minute), so that means the tip is traveling 276 feet per second, or 188.182 MPH. so yeah, 1000mph fidget spinner is pretty much impossible… Who will accept my challenge?

Road Safety / The Virtual Crash Billboard / Serviplan France

By: Serviceplan France

Originally published on Apr 11, 2017

LA SECURITE ROUTIERE D’ILE DE FRANCE AND SERVICEPLAN GIVE PEDESTRIANS QUITE A SHOCK… FOR THEIR OWN PROTECTION

Serviceplan held an unprecedented field operation on 22nd March in Paris to raise awareness about the dangers of being a careless pedestrian, which results in 4,500 victims each year in Ile-de-France.

The idea behind the operation was to display a specially designed interactive digital billboard near a busy pelican crossing. Equipped with a movement detector, speaker, and camera, the smart billboard made the sound of squealing tyres whenever a pedestrian attempted to cross the road while the “red man” was displayed.

The frightened faces of the disobedient pedestrians were projected directly onto the billboard. Their faces were then featured on the road safety billboards, and their photographs are shown alongside the caption: “Don’t look death in the face. Check the lights and cross safely”.

The digital video and posters, created under real-life conditions, will be used as part of the forthcoming “Quinzaine Régionale des Usagers Vulnérables” (15-28 May 2017) (train station billboards, Facebook campaign, etc.)

In this video I muck around with some cool fidget spinners and super strong (but small) neodymium magnets! I show off the fidget spinners, and their variety of colours. You can use the magnets to build your own custom big fidget spinner.

Travelling through the past and present to define our future.
Italian culture along with art, architecture, music and food have made Italy great in the eyes of the rest of the world. Have you ever wondered how these masterpieces from the past have shaped today’s present, and how they can continue to be a source of inspiration in the future?

Three hundred years ago, Italy’s “Grand Tour” was a journey made mainly by wealthy young people to experience the beauties and artwork of Italian cities and culture to find that inspiration that revolutionised the modern world. Today Google re-invent it and made for everyone.

【360° Movie】Tokyo Light Odyssey

【360° Movie】Tokyo Light Odyssey (Full) from WOW inc on Vimeo.

About the Work
From the lights of skyscrapers and homes, to the neon street lights and headlamps of cars and trains in motion… fragments of the city float like stardust out of the darkness against the curtain of the night sky. This new vision of Tokyo is explored with omnidirectional motion graphics.

This work was born from ‘Beyond Motion Graphics’ ( http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics ) an internal company project at WOW aimed at exploring new possibilities for motion graphics. In using VR technology, consideration was given as to what kind of images to showcase and express as pieces of art.

作品について
夜のとばりに包まれた高層ビルの光、街頭のネオン、電車や道行く車のヘッドライトから家々が湛える暮らしの灯りまで、暗闇から現れる星屑のような街の断片を浮遊しながら、東京という都市の新たなビジョンへと至る、全天球型のモーショングラフィックス。

本作は、モーショングラフィックスの新たな可能性を問うWOWの社内プロジェクト「Beyond Motion Graphics」( http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics )から誕生。VRの技術的側面に加え、それによって切り拓かれるべき映像=アートとしての表現性に注目した。
