Welcome back to Friday!

We made it!

And yes, it’s the 13th. But so what! Right?

Here we go. Video time!

Madeline the Robot Tamer & Mimus

“Mimus is a giant industrial robot that’s curious about the world around her. Mimus sees the world differently than us – she uses sensors embedded in the ceiling above to see everyone around her simultaneously. Mimus can react and move quickly around her space to follow your actions and try to decipher your body language.”

A fascinating video. I like it!

Arrival – Making Of – Oblique FX

Oblique FX‘s VFX reel for this amazing film. (Seriously, if you haven’t seen it, it’s recommended.)

Arborio, where the rice was born.

“Arborio is a little village outside of Milan, approximately 60 km. The best ‘arborio and Carnaroli rice is produced in this village of 500 souls. Enjoy this ‘corto’ about Arborio rice and the paniscia, recipe for risotto with nduja (salame cover with lard)”

Mmmmmm risottoooooo… ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautiful Reactions

(Chemical reactions, that is.)

I think my favorite is Zn + Pb(NO3)2 -> Pb + Zn(NO3)2

Bonus Video!

We Went Inside A Secret Train Buried Under Grand Central

Note: A BuzzFeed video.

I’m a little late to this (Aug. 2016) but it’s pretty interesting!

And there we go! Videos! For your Friday the 13th!

Have a lovely weekend everybody.
