We’re at the halfway point of June, and the final Friday before Summer.
We can do this!
It’s also video time…
LEGO Car Factory (red car)
A mostly modular, fully automated car assembly line made completely out of Lego.
Cyclo Knitter by George Barratt-Jones
“I decided on making waiting for your train in the winter more enjoyable.
“By making a man-powered machine that creates scarfs in 5 minutes.”
Pretty great. The expressions on the peoples’ faces when they create their own scarf is kinda great.
KITKAT Online Factory Tour
This is actually a four part video playlist that tours the KitKat factory in Kasumigaura, Japan.
The Japanese really,
really love KitKat, and make a bizarre range of flavors of them including Green Tea.
How to Make Donuts Vending Machine from Cardboard
No joke. A functional donut vending machine. Using the correct coins and everything. From cardboard.
A 3D VR demo that examines the insides of a cartoon cat.
Pretty well done! Created by Leap Motion, who have been making strides in the VR space for a while.
Note: may seem gross to some people. Your mileage may vary. Void where prohibited.
Have a lovely weekend everybody.
It is, once again,
And it’s video time! Here we go…
Europe in March, 1939 Color Home Movies
Footage taken from a 1939 cruise on the SS Normandie. Not much else is known.
It’s super clear! Kind of amazing.
Smooth Criminal But Every Other Beat is Missing
What a weird concept. It sounds vaguely experimental. And decidedly is a “march” now.
See also Toto’s
Africa with the same treatment.
Robert DeLong – Favorite Color Is Blue ft. K.Flay
An odd song but I like it, and a really glitchy, 80’s inspired video.
An action scene created with paper and pencil, and an iphone.
Pretty well done!
The only description text in Japanese translates to “It is a shot”. And… yeah I guess it is. 🙂
And there we go! Friday! And Videos! And Friday Videos!
Have a great, great weekend.
Friday! Happy June. Happy almost Summer.
KEYSCAPE – Greg Phillinganes: Electric Piano Hits!
This video is one of a series that demo keyboard emulation software made by SpectraSonics.
But this particular one features Greg Phillinganes, who has sessioned on more #1’s from the 70s, 80s and 90s than nearly anyone. His range is incredible. Plus: he’s funny.
STAR WARS 4.7: Skywalker vs Starkiller. Movie Mashup.
Combining footage from the first Star Wars and newer ones to create an epic dogfight sequence.
Editing. It’s a thing!
While Darwin Sleeps
“More than three thousand insects appear in this film each for a single frame. As the colours glow and change across their bodies and wings it seems that the genetic programme of millions of years is taking place in a few minutes.”
Beautifully shot. Meditative.
Ink – Written by Hand
“Not long ago, handwriting was taken for granted as something anyone could generally do well. Today, children are taught how to type on tablets – putting pen to paper is an afterthought.”
This is calligrapher / photographer Tanja Tiziana, from Toronto.
Hipsters and their old timey pen-and-ink skills… 😉
That’s what I’ve got.
Happy Friday folks!
Have a great weekend.
