Happy Friday!

Almost the New Year. Time for some videos! Let’s go…

Awesome LEGO Indiana Jones Boulder Scene with 6 Motors!

“Beyond the Brick’s Joshua Hanlon talks with Caleb Watson about his LEGO Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark scene in LEGO at BrickCon 2018.”

No stop-action animation here. He recreated the scene using motors and gravity.

Insane!

Ballance

“Jirí, who likes to decorate Easter Eggs in an engineering way including EggBot drawn stroboscopic patterns (Eggstatic) or a laser created temporal patterns in photochromic paint (Eggstatic 2), decided to move from eggs to balls this year.”

So basically: Zeotrope Xmas tree balls created using EggBot. (And a lot of careful design decisions.)

These are beautiful!

Wired: Watchmaker Breaks Down Swiss vs Japanese Made Watches

“Professional watchmaker Ryan Jewell breaks down two different Carpenter watches; one watch with Japanese movement and another with Swiss movement.”

Finger Machines

“This film started as a couple of explorative clips for Instagram, but for some reason I couldn’t stop making them and I demanded to know why.”

I find it oddly soothing. Creepy, but soothing.
