They Built a Robot!

More Geek Week videos!  Can you tell, I’m loving this? I never would have found this without the awesomeness that is The Nerdist Podcast with Christ Hardwick, Matt Mira and Jonah Ray.

WIRED built a giant robot mech in partnership with YouTube, Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects. And now you get to see how we did it. From design to tech, prototype to insanely detailed finished product, you’ll find out how to build your very own. Just bring a lot of friends and a ton of parts.

A Long Walk Off A Short Pier…Into A Ball Pit

Another Geek Week Video coming your way!  This one is from Head Squeeze.  They give you the low down on the science behind the amazing 9qnn5my52akyrly2kj98_biggerfall that a free runner makes at the British Museum into a ball pit (No, not a pit bull, a ball pit.  I really don’t know why I have a fascination with these things.  Okay, maybe I do.)  60,000 multi-colored plastic balls in a pit…how can you resist?  When Patrick Stewart has a picture of himself in a ball pit…well, your argument is invalid.  Captain Picard says, “Make it so!”

 

Well, I could probably resist making the big jump that Blue did…maybe…probably…I would have been tempted just a little bit.  Resistance is futile.  Definitely don’t try this at home, kids.

Would you have been tempted too?

‘Til next time,
