Making toys cooler through electronics.

Now I don’t know a whole lot about electronics but this guy seems to be talking in terms that someone who had a basic knowledge of electronics and circuits could actually understand and be able to make something with this video.

Well that’s not me and it’s likely not you either, but I rather wanted to show this video as an example of how much fun you can have by just pursuing a topic and learning about it. I’ve always looked at my neat little toys as no more than they were but if I was just a little bit of a tinkerer I could make what ever I wanted out of them.

Valuable “Life Hacks”

This video could make your life a whole lot easier, or at least very specific aspects of your life. I can safely say I knew about none of these except maybe one and they are all incredibly mind-blowing and satisfying to me. There’s a link within the video to a previous installment which I’m sure is just as helpful.

Bee Removal

Here’s a pretty interesting video someone created of the process of removing a large bee-hive from inside a wall of their house. You get a pretty good idea of the process and some interesting facts about bees along the way. Apparently the whole thing only took about five hours, which is quicker than I would think.

The Credit Crisis Visualized

I’m not an economist by any means so when someone starts talking about really any aspect of our complex economy, I’m pretty much lost. I think I need about 100 videos like this before I would truly understand it but this one helps a lot. Apparently there are a lot of layers to what’s going on here and if something different starts happening on any one layer, it’s going to send the whole thing to a screeching halt. Pretty scary.
