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.



“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.
