Phonebloks

This post is about a unique approach on phones.

A phone only lasts a couple of years before it breaks or becomes obsolete. Although it’s often just one part which killed it we throw everything away since it’s almost impossible to repair or upgrade.

The design

The design of the phone is innovative : anyone can build a phone from exactly the blocks they want, and when there is problem with a block, the solution is to replace only the needed module.

Your body is my canvas

This is an interesting video from TED about an innovative canvas for art – the human body.

Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it–literally.

She covers everything in a scene–people, chairs, food, you name it–in a mask of paint that mimics what’s below it. In this eye-opening talk Meade shows off photographs of some of the more outlandish results, and shares a new project involving people, paint and milk.

Why Do We Kiss?

This is an interesting video fromĀ scishow about the history and the possible reasons for kissing.

Hank gets all up in your face about kissing — where does it come from, why do it we do it, and do other animals do it?

Why Do We Clap?

An interesting video about the meaning of clapping.

Is Google Knowledge?

This is a video from pbsideachannel about an interesting idea about knowledge.

“Google it” seems to be the quick and easy answer for every question we could possibly ask, but is finding facts the same thing as KNOWING?

Having billions of facts at the tips of your typing fingertips may not necessarily be making us any smarter. Some people even think it’s making us more stupid and lazy. Whatever way we process the vast sea of data available, the question remains: is the act of googling the same as knowledge? What the episode and find out!

Welcome to The Magic

Another view on Disneyland – Welcome to The Magic – A Disneyland Timelapse.

Over 20,000 images to show the one and only Disneyland Anaheim.

Is the Internet Cats?

This is an interesting video about Internet and Cats.

I think we can all agree that the Internet has an intense, borderline obsessive, appreciation for cats. With felines as its spirit animal, the internet can even seem cat-like in personality.

Where does all this kitteh love come from? Humans made the internet, and humans have had an affinity for cats for centuries. But can we make the jump from “the internet loves cats” to “the internet IS cats”? Watch the episode and find out!

Animal Superpowers

This is a video about some very interesting animal superpowers.

Evolution has come up with some pretty amazing ways to get things done when it comes to animals, plants and microbes. From radiation-resistant bacteria (like Dr. Manhattan) to geckos who climb glass using atomic adhesion (like Spider Man) to a shrimp that can shoot a bubble the temperature of the sun (like Aquaman), nature is pretty super.
