The MP3 Experiment

I love the Improv Everywhere guys and their unique videos. In this clip, 3000 participants downloaded an MP3 track and loaded it onto their iPods before heading out to various retail stores in Times Square. The MP3 consisted of a voice giving the participants instructions. Best to just watch the clip for yourselves to see its ingenuity.

Homemade Spacecraft

I found this clip over at Vimeo and it’s well worth a looksie. These guys decided to try to send a camera up into the upper atmosphere using a weather balloon hoping to capture the footage of its incredible ascent. What I like about this is the way it’s constructed like an experiment for a science class at school but clearly an incredible amount of forward planning, effort and expertise went into it. The footage is beautiful to watch and it showed me just how small we are but how much we can achieve. This is not NASA or the European Space Agency sending a billion $ satellite into space, but can you imagine the things that the child in the video learned from this experiment?! Lots I’m sure. To teachers out there, get your hands on a weather balloon and blow some pupils minds.

by the way if you’re viewing this via non-Flash supported device (you know who you are – rhymes with Snapple), be sure to check it out on a PC when you get a chance.
