Big Industrial Simulators in Finland

Mevea Simulation sit in Lappeenranta in Finland, and they may well make the greatest industrial simulators on Earth. I had to go check them out. They're at https://www.youtube.com/user/MeVEALtd BEHIND THE SCENES on the Park Bench: https://youtu.be/dvr0LzEb0ww And no, this isn't a sponsored video: I found out about them, emailed them out of the blue, and they were nice enough to agree to show us around and use their contacts to get us to the steelworks!

New Suzuki Jimny SUV 2019 - see why I love it... but you might not!

This is the all-new Suzuki Jimny. When it comes to design, it’s hard to find a better-looking small 4x4 than the Jimny, and the latest edition is doing as much as possible to stay true to the original, unique design. But in 2018, with the small SUV market so saturated, does the Jimny have what it takes to seriously compete with the competition?

25 WORST Product Flops You Might Remember

Drones vs Lightning ⚡

At the University of Manchester's High Voltage Laboratory, we see what happens when a DJI Phantom 3 drone gets hit with an electrical impulse of 1.4MV - basically, a lightning strike. Actually, two Phantom 3 drones. We had a backup. Thanks to the team at the High Voltage Lab! Here's their side of the story: http://www.mub.eps.manchester.ac.uk/science-engineering/2017/04/10/drone-vs-lightning/ And here's a teardown of the drone: http://www.mub.eps.manchester.ac.uk/science-engineering/2017/05/11/inside-the-drone/ The University of Manchester's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/universitymanchester You can also follow on Twitter: The HV Lab http://twitter.com/HighVoltage_UoM Vidyadhar Peesapati http://twitter.com/DrViddy Manchester Energy http://twitter.com/mcr_energy School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering http://twitter.com/eeemanchester Main camera: Fraser Cottrell / http://www.frasercottrell.com Edited by Michelle Martin / @mrsmmartin Audio mix by Matt Gray...

Moss Is Terrible For Emergency Navigation

10 TIMES ELON MUSK WAS A SAVAGE!

Elon Musk is known as Elon Reeve Musk FRS a South African-born American business magnate, philanthropist, investor and engineer. One of the smarter guys on the planet, and thus capable of using his words to really break down a bully or two. So, we went through his social media accounts, interviews and question and answer sessions to find the Top 10 examples of Elon Musk being an absolute savage CEO / Entrepreneur, proving that while he may be modest when it comes to naming endeavours like Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink or The Boring Company, he's definitely got a way with words...

G-Force, Jerk, and Passing Out In A Centrifuge

Thanks to the Starrship team for arranging this! I'm also over on their channel, flying with the Blades: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWY3-1gOrxk • At the Royal Air Force training centrifuge in Farnbrough, pilots learn how to avoid G-LOC: g-induced loss of consciousness. Let's talk about g-force, about jerk, and about how to keep circulation flowing to your brain. FAQs: * Isn't 3.6g a really low g-tolerance? * Yep. Turns out I would not qualify to be a fighter pilot. The average range for g-tolerance is 4-6; no-one was expecting me to pass out. The centrifuge team do not deliberately try to G-LOC people! To be fair,...

The Little-Known Patterns on British Streets

I thought about saying "secret patterns" or "mysterious patterns" in the title, but that'd be a lie: they're just mostly unknown! So let's talk about tactile paving, about design, about accessibility, and about those bumpy bits that you stand on when you're crossing a British street. // Thanks to Richard Holmes and the team from the RNIB! They're at http://rnib.org.uk, on YouTube at http://youtube.com/rnibuk and on Twitter at http://twitter.com/rnib !

How Zero-G Planes Work

The European Space Agency offered me a seat on their zero-g plane: it's an Airbus A310 that flies parabolic maneuvers, pulling up into the sky and then arcing back down, giving its passengers about 20 seconds of weightlessness (or "microgravity") at a time. Here's how it works. Some people would have filmed their script on the ground, and just messed about while floating. I decided to go for something a bit more challenging. ** If you're a masters or PhD student from an ESA member state, and zero-g sounds like your thing, have a look at the Fly Your Thesis program: http://www.esa.int/Education/Fly_Your_Thesis --...

Are Batteries Heavier When They're Full? (with Robert Llewellyn!)

Robert Llewellyn is lovely! He agreed to drive me at 135mph for this video, and I was in a remote controlled car that he drove over on his channel. Go see: https://youtu.be/LsLJasd1wEE ! And thank you to the physicists I pestered about this one. For a definitive, complicated, physics-based answer, see Luboš Motl's post here, which a couple of people referred to: http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/34421/does-the-mass-of-a-batterys-change-when-charged-discharged And, of course, thank you to our wonderful camera crew: Matt Gray, http://mattg.co.uk or http://twitter.com/unnamedculprit, and Mark Hankins from Hankin Films, http://hankinfilms.co.uk or http://twitter.com/hankinfilms !

How Green Screen Worked Before Computers

http://tomscott.com - http://twitter.com/tomscott - For those of us who grew up in the age of CGI, green screen is just "a thing that computers do". But how did effects like this work before the age of pixels? With the help of some suitably shiny graphics, here's a quick summary. Thank you to Matt Gray - http://mattg.co.uk - http://twitter.com/unnamedculprit - for sterling work getting the camera and lighting right!

The SPF Rating On Sunscreen Is Questionable At Best

http://tomscott.com - @tomscott - SPF is meant to be a multiplier, but it's much more complicated than that. And as a Brit in Florida, I have to take care about burning.

Third Person Driving with a Drone

http://tomscott.com - @tomscott - A filming drone, video goggles, a Mazda MX-5 Miata and a disused airfield. Paul and Oli compete to answer the question: can you drive in a third person view?

Calling The Police Doesn't Charge Your Phone Battery

In Slough, outside the headquarters of Blackberry, I talk about an urban legend that's almost true: the idea that calling 999, the British emergency number, could actually charge your phone battery. It's not quite right, but it's close. (It's easy to make fun of Slough. There's no second part to that, it's just easy to make fun of Slough.)

Why The Prime Meridian Isn't At 0º

http://tomscott.com - http://twitter.com/tomscott - If you travel to Greenwich, stand on the famous Prime Meridian Line -- which is marked with a physical line and a sculpture at the Royal Observatory -- and look at your GPS, it won't read 0° longitude. It'll be slightly out. Who's right? And why? Many thanks to my lovely cameraman Tom Morris (http://tommorris.org), who dealt with the cold wind admirably!

Tilting an Icy Floor Until You Fall Over: WinterLab

If you're in Canada, you need good winter boots. But how do you know whether they're actually safe, or whether you'll fall over the first time you step on ice? This is WinterLab, part of the Challenging Environment Assessment Laboratories at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, where they're testing winter shoes with science.
