"In this video I attempt to lift a 19kg (42 lbs) wheel over my head one-handed while it's spinning at a few thousand RPM. This replicates an earlier experiment by Professor Eric Laithwaite.
He claimed the wheel was 'light as a feather' and could not be explained by Newton's Laws. I wanted to find out for myself what I really felt like."

This list of 50 best hand-picked websites will be your guide in filtering the good from the bad of learning web design online.
You don’t need me to tell you that online education has obvious benefits over traditional education, such as affordability, ability to learn at your own pace, immersive communities and in most cases tangible end results.
What you may not know is that designers who are skilled in HTML/CSS/JS earn more and live longer and happier lives (at least 2/3 of this statement is actually totally made up).
But you came here to see if there are some resources in this post that you can learn from. So let’s get to it.

Garret Steider had the bright idea to create this awesome project that involves typography and food.
Carving into food and shaping each letter of the Alphabet with an extra taste of typography making this a very unique and probably very time consuming but the result is amazing.

This workshop is part of the Transformer project and was done in collaboration with Marcel Bilow/Buckylab and Ulrich Knaack/Facade Research Group.
Utopian yet practical
The Transformer project is one of the most utopian and at the same time one of the most practical projects of the Why Factory. It is based on a hypothetical material.
Various research institutions are busy with the idea of programmable matter.
But it is unlikely that such a material will be available for large-scale usage within the coming ten or twenty years. At the same time, the Transformer includes very practical, scientific strategies in the field of ergonomics, interactive design and negotiation which are related to furniture, building and urban design.

Better Poster is a resource for improving poster presentations.
Academic conference posters are often ugly, with tiny text, confusing layouts, and dubious colour schemes. Better Posters is about making posters informative and beautiful...
► Highly Supportive with Guidance:
► Do's and Don'ts of Poster Presentation
► Bonus I: Publish your poster with the Faculty of 1000 Poster
F1000Posters, an open access repository, provides a permanent, structured environment for the deposition of posters and slide presentations as well as a trustworthy venue for ongoing discussion and development of the information being presented.
The early scientific information presented in conference presentations is universally agreed to be an important resource but, unfortunately, it is almost always completely lost once a conference is over.
The system of removing work from view after a conference is over represents a vast loss to the scientific community of unique and potentially valuable information.

Dada's innovative approach to typography, photomontage, negative white space, layout, letter spacing and line spacing has played a significant role in the development of communication design.
Of course, many aspects of their style, technique and aesthetics were borrowed from Futurists. In particular, Dada adopted Futurists art of typography.
The Dada publications, including manifestos, magazines, and posters, reveals that graphic design was indispensable for establishing the movement's visual identity, and its strong design signature.
Given the rebellious nature of Dada, the Futurists' typographical experiments were more conducive to the spirit of Dadaism's subversive nature than to their own enthusiasm for depicting the energetic pace of machines.
This is perhaps why Dadaism contributions became more prominent. According to Tristan Tzara in the Dadaist manifesto:
"Every page should explode, either because of its deep seriousness, or because of its vortex, vertigo, newness, timelessness, crushing humor, enthusiasm of its principles, or the way it is printed."
This reflected exactly the founder of Futurism, Marinetti's virulent sentiment when he wrote:
"I undertake a typographical revolution directed especially against the idiotic and nauseous conception of old-fashioned books of verses ... Better still: my revolution is directed against what is called typographical harmony of the page ... I intend to redouble the expressive force of words." ...
