Why you should make useless things | Simone Giertz
 
11:58
In this joyful, heartfelt talk featuring demos of her wonderfully wacky creations, Simone Giertz shares her craft: making useless robots. Her inventions -- designed to chop vegetables, cut hair, apply lipstick and more -- rarely (if ever) succeed, and that's the point. "The true beauty of making useless things [is] this acknowledgment that you don't always know what the best answer is," Giertz says. "It turns off that voice in your head that tells you that you know exactly how the world works. Maybe a toothbrush helmet isn't the answer, but at least you're asking the question."

MIT Media Lab: Program in Media Arts & Sciences
 
06:25
What is it like to be a grad student at the MIT Media Lab? The Media Lab is a community of inventors who work together in 25+ research groups, doing the things that conventional wisdom says can’t or shouldn't be done. Students come to the Media Lab through the Program in Media Arts and Sciences (MAS), based within MIT’s School of Architecture + Planning. Each year, the program accepts approximately 30-40 master’s and PhD students with backgrounds ranging from computer science, to music, to architecture. Here is a snapshot of life at the Media Lab, from research to community and environment. For more information, visit: https://www.media.mit.edu/posts/open-house/

Amazing Technology Invented By MIT - Tangible Media
 
03:41
At the MIT Media Lab, the Tangible Media Group believes the future of computing is tactile. Unveiled today, the inFORM is MIT's new scrying pool for imagining the interfaces of tomorrow. Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that's only the beginning. Created by Daniel Leithinger and Sean Follmer and overseen by Professor Hiroshi Ishii, the technology behind the inFORM isn't that hard to understand. It's basically a fancy Pinscreen, one of those executive desk toys that allows you to create a rough 3-D model of an object by pressing it into a bed of flattened pins. With inFORM, each of those "pins" is connected to a motor controlled by a nearby laptop, which can not only move the pins to render digital content physically, but can also register real-life objects interacting with its surface thanks to the sensors of a hacked Microsoft Kinect.

Why our universe might exist on a knife-edge | Gian Giudice

The biggest surprise of discovering the Higgs boson? That there were no surprises. Gian Giudice talks us through a problem in theoretical physics: what if the Higgs field exists in an ultra-dense state that could mean the collapse of all atomic matter? With wit and charm, Giudice outlines a grim fate -- and why we shouldn't start worrying just yet. (Filmed at TEDxCERN.)

TRANSFORM - Amazing Technology Invented By MIT
 
11:38
TRANSFORM fuses technology and design to celebrate its transformation from a piece of still furniture to a dynamic machine driven by the stream of data and energy. Created by Professor Hiroshi Ishii and the Tangible Media Group from the MIT Media Lab, TRANSFORM aims to inspire viewers with unexpected transformations, as well as the aesthetics of the complex machine in motion. The work is comprised of three dynamic shape displays that move more than one thousand pins up and down in realtime to transform the tabletop into a dynamic tangible display. The kinetic energy of the viewers, captured by a sensor, drives the wave motion represented by the dynamic pins. The motion design is inspired by the dynamic interactions among wind, water and sand in nature, Escher’s representations of perpetual motion, and the attributes of sand castles built at the seashore. TRANSFORM tells the story of the conflict between nature and machine, and its reconciliation, through the ever-changing tabletop landscape.

It costs 70 MILLION dollars per kg! But why?
 
12:28
Sometimes science can be expensive!!! I frequent deal with stable isotopes which can happily reach tens of thousands of dollars per gram. In this case ~$70 000 per gram for 41K. In this case I only had about 1/3rd of a gram. Now it might seem like a lot, but bear in mind this is not really something you can sell. The market for 41K in the entire world is almost nothing. Indeed the only thing that gives it value is it costs so much to make it. Thankfully, this stuff did good work! We got some of the best measurements on the hydration of potassium in the world!! Indeed they were good enough to highlight some of the previous knowledge about 41K, to the point where I had to bring this sample out of retirement and send it back to the reactor to check the properties of the nucleus. I wont be adding this to the patreon feed, but many thanks to all those who support this channel! https://www.patreon.com/Thunderf00t

Making glass invisible Science Experiment for kids! REQUIREMENTS :- Container (Pyrex) Beaker (Pyrex) Vegetable Oil WHAT TO DO :- Pour vegetable oil into the larger container and then immerse the smaller container in to the larger container WHAT HAPPENS :- The beakers looks like a ghost like object in the container, almost invisible WHY THIS HAPPENS :- The real secret behind this science experiment is the index of refraction. When light travels through the glass, and then through the oil, the speed of light slows down and then it hits the glass and refracts or reflects and this is why the glass looks invisible.

MIT Hobby Shop
 
05:33
In the 1937-38 academic year, Vannevar Bush, then Vice President of MIT, granted a group of 16 MIT students permission to use a room in the basement of building 2. With equipment they found around the Institute they set up a wood and metal shop in the 16-foot by 22-foot area. The club members chose the name "Hobby Shop" based on their belief in the philosophy that the well rounded individual pursued interests outside their profession - hobbies. Now in its 75th year, we take a look back how the Hobby Shop began, and evolved to what it is today.

Autonomous robotic plane flies indoors at MIT
 
02:48
For decades, academic and industry researchers have been working on control algorithms for autonomous helicopters — robotic helicopters that pilot themselves, rather than requiring remote human guidance. Dozens of research teams have competed in a series of autonomous-helicopter challenges posed by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI); progress has been so rapid that the last two challenges have involved indoor navigation without the use of GPS. But MIT's Robust Robotics Group — which fielded the team that won the last AUVSI contest — has set itself an even tougher challenge: developing autonomous-control algorithms for the indoor flight of GPS-denied airplanes. At the 2011 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), a team of researchers from the group described an algorithm for calculating a plane's trajectory; in 2012, at the same conference, they presented an algorithm for determining its "state" — its location, physical orientation, velocity and acceleration. Now, the MIT researchers have completed a series of flight tests in which an autonomous robotic plane running their state-estimation algorithm successfully threaded its way among pillars in the parking garage under MIT's Stata Center.
