Hot Wheels Road Trip

Pinball Marble Run https://youtu.be/Zm572Lp0u3Y

Ride along on the Hot Wheels car as it travels through 8 different track sections all connected by teleporting tunnels. From the backyard to the big hill to the pool and back, this track’s got it all.

Each section worked on its own from tunnel to tunnel. The cart is powered entirely by gravity at all times.

In total there are 11 cuts in the video, 7 between locations and 4 for slow motion footage. The jump section and the loop section were filmed twice, once in 30 fps and again in 120 fps, and the final video cuts from the normal speed footage to the slow motion footage for the duration of both the jump and the loop.

The cart worked reasonably well underwater and only fell off the pool track a few times. The main problem with the pool track was keeping the track connected and in place. A rock was attached to the end of the track in order to weigh it down.

In total about 200 feet of track was used, nearly all of which is present in the 4th section. Filmed with a GoPro Hero4 Session mounted on a modified 2014 Pharadox car. Filmed in California and Colorado.

Brian Greene: It’s Easy to Teach Kids to Love Science. So Why Do We Keep Failing at It?

Transcript – I think there are a lot of reasons why there are some people – and I don’t consider it to be some major epidemic sweeping the land but yes, there are some people who resist the insights of science. And I think a lot of this has to do with how we teach science to young kids in school, right. For many people – and I’m talking from experience – people have told me this that science for them in school they didn’t understand it as a body of investigative knowledge that gives us insights into how the world works. No, for them it was some facts that they were made to memorize and spit back on an exam that had no direct relevance to anything that they could directly see or touch or in some sense it was just abstract nonsense that they were force to memorize. And the tragedy of that is when a young kid realizes that science reveals the hidden underside of reality and what it reveals is so exciting – when I talk to kids and tell them about black holes, tell them about the Big Bang, tell them about quantum mechanics and quantum tunneling, how particles can go through barriers that you wouldn’t have thought possible I can’t tell you the number of times kids will say to me, that’s science? That’s cool. And science needs to have that experience for kids where it just grabs them as the most exciting dramatic story of discovery. And if you have that experience as a young kid science is not a subject. It’s not a test that you have to take. Science is your ticket to understanding the world and the universe and then it’s with you for life. If you can have that experience it changes everything.
