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…

7:54– Special song written just for me- Lincoln Hoppe, http://lincolnhoppe.com/

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.

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?

These remarkable Dolphins in Western Australia display incredible ingenuity when hunting for fish in the shallows. With little room for error, it would appear fortune does indeed favour the brave.

Nikon in Space: time-lapse view of the world | Nikon 100th Anniversary

 

By: Nikon Europe

Originally published on Apr 18, 2017

Nikon’s history in Space began with the Nikon Photomic FTN, a modified Nikon F camera that was used aboard the Apollo 15 in 1971 and Nikon cameras have been aboard every manned space flight since. This film, edited by SmugMug Films, is a compiled time-lapse video using thousands of still images. The bright flashes are lightning strikes hitting the earth, watch and enjoy.

This is the first of many remarkable moments, both big and small, which we will be sharing in the lead up to Nikon 100th Anniversary! Stay tuned for more. 🙂
