  • "This is breaking my brain" couldn't say it better

  • How much do you pay for a vacation like that? "Ending life on Earth, for a day!"

  • Okay I learnt one thing from this video. Never try to learn physics😂😂😂

  • 4:46 felt like a Holden Caulfield quote

  • My brain just broke

  • Nice

  • This is why Kodak black is the goat

  • da noodle shall save me

  • Check out the history of the Peugeot 403... it nearly closed the company because there were too few parts sold for it... It was too reliable... (it was the last time they made that mistake)

  • Thank you for sharing this! Also great style at the end, brings back the 90's :)

  • Wow, this was truly amazing!!! Nature have so many ways to solve "issues" that are so hard for humans to recreate.

  • But doesn't the basic nature of this principle pretty much prevent it from being used as a robot? I mean, since the tip of it gets deployed last, putting cameras or any actuators at the tip would mean it would still stay blind until it is fully extended. That would mean if you tried using it in an unknown environment, like a crushed building, searching for survivors for example, you would have to know ahead of deploying it where it would have to go and how long it would have to be in order to see something at the end of its full deployment length. Using a try and error method where you just randomly blow the thing up again and again until it randomly finds a useful way would also not work that well, especially if it gets punctured, because then you can't retract it anymore. And if you would put little cameras all over the surface in order to continuously see something, you would probably lose a lot of the "squeezing through cracks" abilities.

  • I did this when I was 8 with a piece of plastic. Never knew it could be so useful! Good job

  • Does this not also have consequences for the famous Michelson Morley experiment? An attempt to measure the ether that failed which caused the conclusion to be that the ether does not exist. They used a setup where light would bounce around in two different directions and the phase difference would cause an interference effect. If you could cause that interference to change by rotating the experimental setup then you'd show that light speed is not the same in all directions. However that would still only be the roundtrip time and not one way light speed. Anyone have thoughts on this or should we begin to reconsider the existence of the ether?

  • “So I can fly your drone?” “No, you can control the camera on the drone.” Lol 🤣

  • Anyone know about wim Hof method many people and me haven't been sick in years. Remember to feed your minds with nourishing stuff not bullcrap

  • 6:03

  • So, while it can be turned with the muscles, can you actively turn it through a snakelike path? It seems to me like if you can't make it wind like that it would have limited search and rescue use.

  • Is it any wonder that mutations happen with ALL THAT going on?

  • learned helplessness is also heavily propagated through the media and some families, especially to certain marginalized groups. They are told "no matter what, you will be persecuted, mistreated, and misunderstood. Nothing you do will change it". I grew up poor, and my family raised me that way too (it wasn't entirely wrong, this world is built around connections-if you really want a good job the best way to get it is just to know the right people regardless of your qualifications). It's quite possibly why upward mobility is so difficult, generations of learned helplessness get passed on to the children, so that even when a rare case where they do get a chance to move up appears, they won't take it because they are told they can't get it (or that "if it sounds too good to be true, it's a scam")

  • Humans in the past: Wow, By 2021, We'll have flying cars and futuristic robots that will be able to do anything! Humans in 2021: SNEK !

  • Excellent video. Just one thing - screw fittings aren't ubiquitous. In the UK, bayonet fittings are more common, except in spotlights(which tend to use the small ES fitting).

  • What will happen if we decrease the distance

  • Hint; the speed of light isn't constant.

  • It is in front of us. If the speed of light was different, then black holes would have had egg shape event horizon, and our observable universe horizon would have been shifted as well, so one side of the sky would have been brighter then the other. Also we would not see the same homologous universe in terms of star age distribution.

  • Ve: Photon, what speed are you travelling at ? Photon: Yes.

  • Awesome video, thank you.

  • Can you also explain the Method By Ramanujan to finding the value of pie... pls

  • Humans are bad in creating. Just salvage what you can! Putting fish in the lake was a bad idea? So would it be wrong to salvage the salt out of the lake? (I'm no expert. That's why the question marks.)

  • Imagine it: Instant snake.

  • That's how we put new sewer pipes in the ground look up sewer lining

  • You know a design is great, when you are jealous of it that it's not yours. It happens to me a lot on this channel.

  • Thumbs down for wearing masks. You should be smarter than that.

  • Start two clocks. Separate them slowly. Fire beam from one clock, stopping it. Stop other clock when beam arrives. Difference in time over difference in distance is one-way speed. Not impossible.

  • That’s me....that’s why I am here

  • This is crazy. Cool though! Halfway through if I paid close attention I saw it for what it is but as soon as I took my eye off it it did the weird but common illusion!

  • When a girl says "I don't have STD'S" and you make your junk indestructible before penetrating her. Then she says: I thought you said was 5 inches...That was HUGE.

  • Every time i have a good idea someone else makes it ffs

  • I saw this principle used for sewer drain repair a while back with a flexible sock coated in a resin. As it inflates it works its way through the damaged pipe and then hardens forming a new solid wall. Very clever

  • This shows, how greed can effect lives of thousands if not, millions. The Soviet Union wanted to retain the name of nuclear superpower and be ahead of the US, that motivated them to make Chernobyl, since they just cared of name, they forgot of safety and the disaster occured.

  • Nicely explained.

  • An easy way to get synchronization is to go”ooh oooohhhh oohhhh ooohhh oooooohhh” in a room full of guys

  • ayy i have that robot too but it only stretches up to 4 inch

  • i know what i could use that for 😏

  • Danish Ole Roemer was the first to discover that light has a speed in 1676 :-)

  • I'm gonna try to ignore this "robots that bend" / "soft robots" / "flexible robots" trend for as long as I can.
