Loop Findr

Software developed by Collin Burger can automatically locate loops in video to create perfect GIFs - video embedded below:

Loop Findr is a tool that automatically finds loops in videos so you can turn them into seamless gifs.

Since their creation in 1987, animated GIFs have become one of the most popular means of expression on the Internet. They have evolved into their own artistic medium due to their ability to capture a particular feeling and the format’s portable nature. Loop Findr seeks to usher in a new era of seamless GIFs created from loops found in the videos the populate the Internet. Loop Findr is a tool that automatically finds these loops so users can turn them into GIFs that can then be shared all over the Web.

You can find out more background about the project here

There is also a loopfindr Tumblr blog which has examples and links to download the software (Mac only) here

Lego Microscope

This build was originally inspired by the Lego X-Pod sets. While trying to find a use for the pod itself, I realized that it was very close to a deep petri dish. I used a planetary gear system to allow both coarse and fine adjustment of the objective “lens”. A little more tinkering and I connected the focus to a magnifying glass and fiber optic light in the eyepiece, so adjusting the focus knobs would actually bring the writing on a Lego stud in and out of focus.

But how are they supposed to turn the knobs with those useless U-shaped hands?!?

The symbiotic relationship between local grass species, grazing animals, and the humans who milk them. Amor Sciendi takes an interesting scientific and historical look at the relationship of cheese and terroir, or cheeses taste the way they do because of where they are from.

If you’re still hungry, follow that with my video all about the science of cheese!

cheese <3

Tree Frog Eggs
Instead of laying eggs in water, some tree frogs deposit their spawn on leaves that overhang a pool. When the tadpoles hatch, they fall into the water below. This gives the advantage of the absence of aquatic predators that may eat the eggs.
