Rube Goldberg

I love, love, love Rube Goldberg machines!

This is an amazing one!

From YouTube:

From the OK Go album "Of the Blue Colour of the Sky" available at http://www.okgo.net/store

Director: James Frost, OK Go and Syyn Labs.
Producer: Shirley Moyers.
The official video for the recorded version of "This Too Shall Pass" off the album "Of the Blue Colour of the Sky". The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The "machine" was designed and built by the band, along with members of Syyn Labs ( http://syynlabs.com/ ) over the course of several months.

There is an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the warehouse here: http://www.okgo.net/this-too-shall-pa...

OK Go thanks State Farm for making this video possible.

Mid-Day Distraction: Coke Can Meets Molten Lava

lava

From the 'About' section on YouTube:

Lava flow and two cans of Coca Cola. The first can had a tiny hole punched in the top to prevent it from randomly exploding. I wanted to see if it would fountain as it heated up but, the can just sort of squirted coke.

The second can was sealed but, fell over. The lava caused a leak on the lower side. Footage is first from my Nikon D800 and then my old GoPro Hero 2. I had to pull the GoPro away at the end not from the spraying coke but, due to its proximity to the quick moving lobe of lava.

The lava was flowing a bit too cool causing it to be less fluid.
This series of videos is scientific in nature seeing how differing sealed objects react to the 2000 degree lava hitting it. If anyone's worried this is littering, relax. These items all melted.
