Mike Dawes – Jump (Van Halen) Solo Acoustic Guitar

“When I was 14 I heard Eddie Van Halen play for the first time and his playing changed my world. From transcribing his iconic ‘Beat It’ solo at school to attempting his signature techniques on the acoustic guitar.”

This guy is good! I’d never heard of him before. Really talented. Great tone. Really diverse player.

Galley Diaries #1 – Food Prep on a Super Yacht

From YouTuber TheCrewChef aka Nina Wilson.

She walks usthrough the maintenance of the galley, ingredients, prep, plating and serving.

I could not do this job, and it’s one I was considering doing for a while.

Machine learning breakthrough: Robot runs a 5k

“The OSU Dynamic Robotics Laboratory’s research team, led by Agility Robotics’ Jonathan Hurst, combined expertise from biomechanics and robot controls with new machine learning tools to accomplish something new: train a bipedal robot to run a full 5K on a single battery charge!”

Meet “Cassie”.

Note:: not about speed. More about endurance.

Happy Friday!

We made it again to another Friday. And it’s hot where I live. And things are slowly opening back up where I live. I hope things are okay wherever you are. We’re making it through this year.

And we have videos!

CopterPack First Flight

There is, of course, a website.

Not a lot of information. Battery life. Range. Emergency battery loss flight recovery. You know: the basics. 🙂

Still looks pretty cool.

The Kiffness – Numnum Cat (International Mashup)

“Once again, a cat brings people from around the world together in music!”

The original is adorable (and only 5 seconds long.) This is an awesome use of that segment.

Online Video Tutorial

A series of clips of people introducing their extremely varied instructional videos.

It’s so all over the place. I love it.

A 1 Kilometer “Ball Drop” On Solar System Bodies

“This animation shows a ball dropping from 1000 meters to the surface of each object, assuming no air resistance. This should give an idea for the pull you would feel on each object.”

From Dr James O’Donoghue.

Come onnnnn Ceres!!

And there we go. Allll video’d up for your Friday!

Have a great weekend everybody. Stay safe!

It’s FRIDAY!

Another week down. And where I live we’re slowly seeing things open back up again. Stay super safe everybody!

Also today I got my 2nd Covid-19 vaccine. Now to just wait out the 2 weeks for my immune system to learn martial arts.

It’s video time!!

The Seinfeld Theme Mixed With A Hit Song From Every Year Seinfeld Was On TV

This is definitely a gimmick, but holy cow it is executed extremely well. The video editing is awesome as well. A collaboration from “Seinfeld Current Day” and The Hood Internet, who I’ve featured here before.

Well done.

The Science Of Firework Color

A quick little doc about the chemicals that create different colours in fireworks. Nicely done.

How many robots does it take to run a grocery store?

“In Ocado’s grocery warehouses, thousands of mechanical boxes move on the Hive. Are they all individual robots? Or is this one giant hive mind?”

Chocolate Statue of Liberty!

“This new chocolate creation is very dear to me!

“It weighs 115lbs and peak at 7ft, it is my highest showpiece yet.”

From chocolatier Amaury Guichon. Holy crap.

And there we have it: Friday Videos all wrapped up.

Thanks for playing along at home everybody. Stay safe, Happy Friday, and have an excellent weekend.

See you next week.
