    This NASA time-lapse shows the sun’s activity for the past three years in three minutes. The photographs are shown at a pace of two photos for each day. Thus, there are a little over 2000 photos in this video that are shown at around 12 frames per second. The images were captured by the camera on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
    "“This image, is a composite of 25 separate images spanning the period of April 16, 2012 to April 15, 2013. It uses the SDO AIA wavelength of 171 Angstroms and reveals the zones on the sun where active regions are most common during this part of the solar cycle.” "

    20Foot Long Balloon Dinosaur

    Larry Moss’s Airigami team did and assemble a huge-ass balloon dinosaur in the lobby of the Virgina Museum of Natural History. This balloonimal is an acrocanthosaurus, which is a carnivorous dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous period. At 20 feet long, it's almost a 1:1 scale model. Cool. It took about 4 days to complete. This time lapse video shows the building of a 20-foot balloon acrocanthosaurus at the Virginia Museum of Natural History April 19-21, 2013. Design and project management by Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle. Crew included Phil and Dee Cosmos, Marsha Gallagher, and TJ Michael

    Unfortunately, the whole thing is in French. Basically, the robot has a levitating arm that can grab a can of soda and drop it down the vending machine for free. It's controlled by a gamepad. But seriously, watch this guy in action. It's insane. The action starts at around the 1:20 mark of the video. When you see it work, you'll wonder why people need to spend a dollar on that carbonated sugar water again. Haha...
