Band Of Drones Play Music!

band-of-drones

“The hexrotors create music in ways never seen before, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp,’ the company says. They even manage to play drums and crash cymbals with the help of a deconstructed piano action. And we can’t forget about the bells — there are many of them. Clearly a ton of work went into producing this; KMel notes that it had support from Intel and Lockheed Martin in bringing the band together. And soon the ‘Flying Robot Rockstars’ will be going on tour.” w/ photos + video

Pyro Board: 2D Rubens’ Tube!

“Rubens’ Tube is an awesome demo and here we take it to the next level with a two-dimensional ‘Pyro Board’. This shows unique standing wave patters of sound in the box. The pressure variations due to the sound waves affect the flow rate of flammable gas from the holes in the Pyro Board and therefore affect the height and color of flames. This is interesting for visualizing standing wave patterns and simply awesome to watch when put to music. Thank you to Sune Nielsen and everyone at Aarhus for sharing this demonstration with me! And thanks for having me at your conference.” — Veritasium

I have researched the Internet far and wide to present to you what I consider to be the 15 most ridiculous Ninja Turtle figures.” w/ photos
