    Among the nicest things about Youtube is certainly the splendid choice of animated short films. Here are some of my current favourites:

    Of course there's Oktapodi, a hilarious film about the power of love. I can watch this one over and over!

    Then also nice but a bit calmer is Going Green, a film about a traffic light fed up with it's daily work.

    And finally something to think about: The Lost Thing. With nearly 16 minutes not really short, but definitely worth watching. Reminds me a bit of the art of Tinguely.


    Enjoy!

    This home-made electric assist pedal bicycle races and smokes gasoline motorcycles.
    The same Lithium-Ion's that power our flashlights power this bicycle.
    Electric power is the future of racing.

    Enjoy,

    I just learned something new about high voltage circuit breakers at power substations. When a HV circuit breaker is opened, the electrical arc continues to conduct electricity. This is bad. To extinguish this current flow quickly, there are "air blast" systems that shoot a 1200 psi blast of air at the switch, blowing the ionized air mocules apart, extinguishing the arc immediately. Pretty cool.

    Here's a video of an air blast HV circuit breaker operating. It sounds like a gunshot when it goes off. I wouldn't want to be standing near one when it operates!

    This is one of my favorite YouTube videos of one of my favorite bands.

    I hope you enjoy the tunes and the awesome light show...

    It gets really good at around 2:00 and I bet you you'll recognize the tune!

    That's intense, never once have I seen one of those giant breaker arcs and on thinking on how to disable it, arrived at "giant can of compressed air"..

    Neither did I. In a way it's wonderfully old school, but then so is electricity itself.

    Good old Ford.

    No need to wait for the car to arrive on dealer showrooms before seeing a major problem. Things have indeed improved at Ford.

    Here's a 10 minute ride inside a Blue Angel's cockpit while performing maneuvers. Warning, if you're prone to motion sickness, you might want to skip this one. I recommend watching in full screen to get the most bang. http://www.neatorama.com/2009/06/28/...s-cockpit-cam/

    Ever watch Boardwalk Empire on HBO? You won't believe how much of the scenery is actually CGI. Just amazing.

    I believe it. The stuff still standing from that Golden Age doesn't even remotely look as good as what you see in the show. There is no way they could actually restore all that. (Even though it is HBO.) Without CGI, it's simply not happening.

    This link was on the same page from the one above. I thought it was hilarious.

    Remember those crazy CGI musical instruments in the Animusic series of videos? Intel just made a real life version of them.

    PhotonWrangler, once again, you've posted a really interesting and entertaining video. I really enjoyed viewing it as I have many of the other videos you've linked. Nonetheless, it troubles me to see this particular one here on CPF.
    As entertaining as it is, it is a promotional COMMERCIAL for THE INTEL Corporation published through their CHANNEL INTEL YouTube presence. It even ends with the "INTEL CHIME" we are all so familiar with from their TV commercials.

    Considering the emphasis here at CPF on not allowing members to link to product pages or manufacturer's web sites, along with the strict enforcement of this rule, I find this video to be in the same category; worse actually, because it is an actual commercial.

    One could start a whole thread here in the Cafe about viral marketing and indeed it would be an interesting topic of discussion but this video is a classic example of it. I find viral marketing by large corporations to be an insidious manipulation. By getting you to link to their amusing video they are getting you to distribute their advertising and brand awareness to hundreds of your "friends" here at CPF and perhaps, ultimately thousands of others, as indeed, that is how viruses spread.

    EZO, honestly I struggled with that one myself before I posted it. Yes it falls into the viral marketing category, however I'm not sure I could come up with another, more unbiased link to the same subject. MODs, if you feel this is inappropriate then let me know and I'll remove it, or you can take it down yourself. I do not want to knowingly violate any rules here.

    Thanks for your reply PhotonWrangler. I appreciate the tone of your response.

    It really is an entertaining video and the marketing department at Intel deserves credit for creating something so compelling that you would post it regardless of who published it. It raises interesting questions. One of those questions is whether it's OK to post this kind of thing. Perhaps a Mod might comment?
