You’re Listening To A Musical Instrument Made Of Jell-O

You’re Listening To A Musical Instrument Made Of Jell-O | Secondary Science Scoop | Scoop.it
As a species, we’ve sure put a lot of work into designing strange, noise-making implements that we pretend are perfectly normal by labeling them as “musical instruments.” Consider a tuba or a sitar--these are oddities by any aesthetic standard.

 

Okay...so this is really nothing cooler than this! #1. I want them all. #2. What a great video to get your kids talking! How are the sound waves transmitted? Why do you have to touch the Jell-O? Do bigger pieces make different sounds? Why?

How Our Brains Set the World Spinning

How Our Brains Set the World Spinning | Secondary Science Scoop | Scoop.it

If there’s ever excuse to publish an optical illusion as cool as the “Rotating Snakes,” I’ll take it. This illusion was invented in 2003 by Akiyoshi Kitaoka of Ritsumeikan University in Japan, and ever since, Kitaoka and other scientists have been trying to figure out why it works. A new paper by Stephen Macknik at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix may have the answer.
