    MINI FISH & CHIPS

    December 16, 2019


    Hello folks it is Barry here welcome to my
    virgin kitchen today we are doing another mini food if you have missed any of the mini
    foods already you can check out the playlist there should be a link here or in the description
    box down below loads of you have asked for a mini fish and chips that good old seaside
    classic and I am going to try and make your mini food dreams come true today without further
    ado we have all the tools here lets get cracking. It is fair to say folks we are building up
    quite a stash of mini food utensils many of these things including the cocktail sticks
    randomly have been sent in by you guys so thanks for that as always the rules are very
    simple we must fit the food on this teddy bear plate. The rip off winnie the pooh plate.
    The first ingredient is the humble baby potato we have a knife here and what I am going to
    do is turn this baby potato into chips. Which sounds a lot easier than it is but we will
    get there I am going to square it off first. Alright that will do but this knife is not
    being the most cooperative but I am just going to cut thin squares down like this ok cool
    and then across like this will give us our chips there we go.
    I will put these chips to one side I have patted them dry to get rid of any starch good
    times, this is a pack from some fish mix ok the smallest amount of fish I could get so
    I do have fish for dinner tonight randomly within this pack I found this bit of fish
    which I do not even need to cut to size so it is kind of like the runt of the litter,
    it is perfect so we need to make our beer batter next.
    Oh my gosh it is not even 9 o clock in the morning and I am drinking beer I feel like
    I am on a stag do that I had to do that so it will not spill when I pour into this shot
    glass just a little bit of beer there yes about half full that is perfect and if it
    was past midday maybe I would have some more but that is enough for now.
    Ok so what I am doing is adding an eighth of a teaspoon at a time into our beer to make
    our beer batter so we are going to need a bit more than that you know what I actually
    ended up adding eight one eighths of a teaspoon so should have just used a teaspoon so lets
    mix this together what should I use lets use this toenail thing so we are going to push
    the flour into the beer you can see that foamy look you get in there that happens normally
    just thicken it up so it coats our fish when we dunk it in there. Oh here we go getting
    a bit of a mix on now. I think it is quite thick but just to make
    sure and to make it worthwhile using the eighth of a teaspoon we are going to add one more
    in there, mixing it all through and that should coat our fish amazingly.
    For mushy peas this is a teeny speck of boiling water from my kettle I am going to plonk my
    peas in there which should cook it, and this mint this is a sprig of mint right here one
    leaf I have got these things that I think are things to cut off scabby bits on your
    feet. I am just going to cut teeny pieces of mint, and just put it in like that wow
    they really are teeny bits in there I am not going to need all the leaf, waste not want
    not all that stuff about half of it so we will just get through this.
    Turns out I do not have a device for mushing really so I am using the back end of a chop
    stick to mash down the peas and puree them. And we have made mushy minty peas look at
    that, cool. Lets turn that down a bit right folks this
    is the bit I am most scared of ok, and on the complete off chance you are trying these
    at home be very careful, we are going to fry both the chips and the fish in here separately
    I would normally oven bake my chips but this seems like too good an opportunity.
    So we will start by grabbing a chip with the tweezers, I wonder if these tweezers ever
    thought yeah I am going to be on youtube videos and stuff, here we go lets put it in the oil.
    Alright it is not coming off oh there it goes ok it is in there this oil is not red hot
    at the moment I want it to be quite slow so it will cook if it was piping hot it would
    just cook instantly and we do not want that. We want to give it at least 30 seconds.
    There we go chips away and as I say 30 seconds would be a good time to aim for want to get
    them nice and browned, it is on a super low heat and is cooking away like a dream.
    Look at that folks like a baby potato Jacuzzi they are starting to brown I have got my big
    tablespoon to hand that I am going to scoop these chips out any minute now and will rest
    them down. Amazing check out those fries, that is great.
    For the fish it needs a slightly larger pool of oil to sit in so I am warming this up again,
    so we will keep it low again but it is time to dunk the fish in the batter and then in
    there. Ok so it is time to grab the runt of the litter our fish into the batter, is it
    coming out yes, haha oh wow lets get it in the pan that looks weird.
    In it goes folks it is cooking away the batter has clinged on to the fish, in true fish and
    chip style the beer being carbonated makes bubbles so it should have that awesome fish
    and chip effect. It is starting to spit a bit so have turned
    the heat down the actual shape of it looks like a fish. An actual fish in there anyhow
    all we are trying to do now is get that nice brown colour.
    Look at that fish folks I am not sure where to place it no fish pun intended so lets serve
    it up straight away. Alright our rip off winnie the pooh plate
    is ready I have to say I love doing these mini foods I do find them quite a challenge,
    but lets get the chips down, just try and do a bit of styling on it look at that, flashy
    or what, one more chip. We will bring in our fish, look at that it just fits the requirements
    we are ok. So with the mushy peas my trusty one eighth of a teaspoon is going to help
    us out again, yes loving that a little bit more just because you know, why not.
    There we are then folks our mini fish and chips done, there is the beer bottle lid just
    for scale lets see what it tastes like. You are the cameo do you know what that is,
    it means you are making an appearance at the end, so this is some mini fish and chips do
    you want to have a try, you have to eat it in one big go, it is not a drink you are supposed
    to eat it I did say drink, what does it taste of chips even though you ate the fish that
    is good, can I finish it off, ok, oh my gosh, I was going to have some, oh whoops, tastes

    Erosion at the Beach

    December 15, 2019


    Hi, I am Elaine, and welcome to Fun Science Demos. Today we are here to find science at the beach. So, we will begin right here. Here we
    have a container filled with sand to represent our beach. And
    here we have water, it will represent our ocean. Watch what
    happens when I pour this water into the container. Do you see anything happening to the sand? If you notice, water is moving up that sand. The water is being absorbed
    by the sand. And just like when you are at the beach and
    you go walking right by that ocean water and you noticed how much firmer the sand is beneath your feet? That is because the water has been absorbed there. Here, much looser and softer. So, is that the only science we see at the
    beach? No, there is a lot more going on here. And
    you noticed our sand has changed color. I am going to pour a little bit more water in. Keep an eye on our ocean. And the area where the ocean meets our shore is called the shoreline. And see this
    line that I am drawing right across here, that represents our shoreline. Now I want you to keep an eye on that shoreline as I use this pencil to create waves. That wave energy over time is going to do something to that shoreline. Little by little that wave energy comes up to the shoreline and over time the waves and the water are changing that shoreline. What do you see happening? What do you see, what do you notice? What things are you seeing happening with all that wave action? Every day at the beach this wave
    action happens time and time again. And this is just a quick, wee snippet of what we will see. So let us stop making our waves, and see what we have here. Do you notice? Right along the shoreline it changed a
    bit. There is an arc, there is a curve. We even see
    different color sand. What happened? The waves came up, and they eroded our shoreline. They carried back, they carried away our sand- the little particles that are there- and they
    carried them back into the ocean. Where did they put them? Right along
    that ocean floor. Maybe they carried them to a different
    part of the beach. You have probably been to the beach, walked in, had your ankles wet. Walked a little bit further, had your knees wet. Walked a little bit
    further, and almost all the way up to your hips. And then
    suddenly you are way out in the middle of the ocean and then suddenly the water is down to your ankles again. What happened? It was erosion. Erosion, it pulls that sand back into the ocean, spreads it all over. And that is where science is at the beach.
    Science, it is cool, especially at the beach. For
    more about erosion, check our links in the video description.
    Thanks for watching.

    Top 10 : The Best Star Citizen Ships

    November 27, 2019


    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen CaptainShack here with TGN and welcome to TOP 10 ships of the Star Citizen universe Cloud Imperium Games is putting a hell of a lot of money and time into developing these ships and it really shows. So here are my top 10 favorites announced so far. Style and class baby. The 300i series is the Ferrari or Jag of Star Citizen. Each version of the 300i is built with sleek lines and a focus on speed and maneuverability. She’s got the engine power to get you in and out of a fight quick, and a sleek silhouette that can prove a challenge to nail when you’re on her tail in a dog fight. Coming in 3 distinct styles out of the factory, the 300i being the base model, the 315P giving you a more exploration focus with a robust sensor package and the 325A for more weapon focused pilots. If you’re looking for combat, the 325A is the way to go. The Avenger is actually one of the older ships in Star Citizen Lore having a bit of an interesting past. She started out as a standard patrol craft for the UEE advocacy. She’s got large engine mounts and specialized weapon mounts that favor center line guns, making her something of a marksman’s ship. The police avenger variation supports enhanced sensor suites for checking out a targets cargo bay, or tracking down a hiding criminal threat. Most navy pilots in the UEE will spend around 300 hours qualifying in an Avenger before moving to there combat assignment. It’s been stated that the Avenger will be kind of like the training ship for Squadron 42’s campaign. Think along the lines of the T-6 Texan from the US Air Force that’s used to train its pilots. You kinda get the idea. The T8A Gladiator is the UEE Navy’s top of the line carrier-based-atmospheric and space to ground dive bomber. Rugged and built Anvil Aero-Space tough. The Gladiator is the most capable and extremely modular bomber chassis ever designed. If you’ve got a target that needs to get blown to hell on the ground, or in orbit, the Gladiator will send it packing. Chances are we’ll get to fly one of these in Squadron 42’s campaign once it comes out. So the Starfarer is one of those ships we haven’t seen much on yet, but really has my attention. It’s the galaxy’s standard fuel transport ship. They can not only tout massive tanks of fuel from refinery to trading post, but they can also collect fuel from gas giants and extra solar sources to bring back and sell. It’s an interesting concept that I can’t wait to see more on. The Cutlass has hands down my favorite commercial attached to it over on the Star Citizen YouTube channel. It’s got style. The Cutlass has 3 distinct models to it, being low cost, easy-to-maintain ship that have been the back bone of local militia units for sometime now. They tout a larger then average hold, a dedicated tractor mount that the manufacturers insist are for “rescue operations” Yeah sure. Rescuing people from there stuff maybe. The pick-up truck of space. At least that’s how I’ve always seen the Freelancer. Big Cargo bay, small crew. Swivel mount Guns to protect your goods. The Freelancer is the hauler and merchant’s work horse. But with all the after market parts, and the 3 distinct variations these boats can come in, you probably can accomplish just about any mission. Looking for a missile boat for your wing? Check out the Freelancer MIS. A limited edition militarized variant that sacrifices the bulk of its cargo for an auto loading missile battery. Let’s just hope the rumors of “payload incidents” are just that… rumors. They only built a limited number of these things, so, you know. Boom! The Constellation is one of the most popular ships coming out of Star Citizen. A multi-crew vessel built from the ground up for long distance exploration. She literally is a home away from home. Designed with everything you and your crew need to survive out in the black. Large power capacity means long range, an advanced turret system means damn good defense for when that first contact goes so, so very wrong. Exploration is hardly the only option for a Constellation. Designed with large cargo areas, an insane amount of upgrades and customization options and an extreme versatility this vessel includes its own P-52 Merlin short-range fighter as a standard feature. The Merlin can scout, scan and cover the Constellation in the most dire of situations. Check out the different models to find the one that fits your style. Aegis Dynamics Monster of a ship: The Idris Frigate. Larger than a bomber but smaller than a ship of the line, Frigates sit in a sweet spot. While they lack the heavy armor and the capital weaponry of a cruiser, frigates are more maneuverable and are highly configurable. The Idris frigate is said to have a crew size of around eight to ten for optimal operation setup with the capability of holding 2 or more single seat fighters on board. Keep in mind this is still subject to change as the ship hasn’t been finalized yet. The F7 Hornet, this is the military workhorse of the UEE and most large scale organizations and my personal favorite fighter. Akin to an F-16 of today this baby comes in a variety of different models. If you’ve got a mission that needs doing, there’s sure to be a Hornet that fits it. From the stealthy F7C-S Ghost, to the two man Super Hornet that screams space superiority fighter. If you’re planning on sharing ammunition the hard way, the Hornet is a reliable choice. She’s not flashy but she gets the job done. For me this is the single most exciting ship in the lineup. The Reclaimer. Is she the ultimate war ship? Nope. Largest Weapon Capacity? Nope. Get this, she’s a salvage ship. Industrial salvage actually. The Reclaimer comes standard with a reinforced cargo bay, a long-range jump drive and launch pods for unmanned drones. It’s an ideal ship for taking advantage of deep space wrecks. So why is it my number one? Because joining up with my crew, floating through space, looking for the next big score sounds amazing. Using the ships’ tools, like tractor beams, floodlights, scanners to get the job done is what Star Citizen is all about. Finding the roll in the universe and diving in an immersive experience. It’s the ultimate utilitarian craft that looks like it’s straight out of an Aliens movies and I can’t wait to captain one. So guys, this is my look at the Star Citizen’s ships, I’m really excited for this title to come out. Which one is the ship you’re looking to get, or maybe you’ve already picked it up on their website. Let me know in the comments below. As always, watch your six and thanks for watching.

    Milking the WORLD’S MOST VENOMOUS FISH! – Smarter Every Day 117

    November 26, 2019


    Hey it’s me Destin, welcome back to Smarter Every Day. Sometimes I like to walk around in my yard barefooted, which is awesome until I hit a little sticky weed, which hurts. I’m about to ruin the beach for you. There’s an animal called the stonefish that is the meanest thing that I have ever seen. We’re gonna milk it, even though it doesn’t have nipples. Goggle up. Science is about to happen. [ music ] So this is the research aquarium here at James Cook University right? – Yep. This is where we’ve got everything that can bite and kill you. – OK cause you do what? What’s the word? Venomologist? – D’ahh. Toxinologist. – Toxinologist? – Destin how many times have we got to tell you this? – Toxinologist, Dr Jamie Seymour, grabbing a stonefish. – The most venomous fish in the world. – Most venomous fish in the world, with his hand. – Ahh. Just drain a bit of water. – So why are we not wearing leather gloves when we do this? – Probably because you can’t feel properly. – Oh OK. – Yeah it’s better you get a better feel for the fish. – OK, and so is the fish under stress right now? – No they can hold water up in their gills, so they can stay out of water for a couple of hours. – Really? – They’re inter-tidal animals, so they’re used to this sort of thing. – So they get kind of caught in pools and stuff. – Yes, and they’ll often get caught where the water’s drained out and then they’re away and running. So we’ll move our prop fish. See how the spines just whipped up then? – Yeah. – So that’s what we’re trying to look for. – That spine, there’s two spines. – Ahuh. There’s one there, there, there, there, there, there, there. All the way down the back. There’s 13 of them. And they’ve all got venom associated with them. – They all have venom sacs. – All of them, yep. A little hard to see because the animal’s got lumps and bumps all over him, but there’s a little lump on each of these spines, either side, so the spine comes up, there’s a venom sac there and there, as your foot or whatever comes down over the top of it, the spine goes into your foot, and there’s no venom sac until it gets about a third of the way down, and then what happens is your tissue compresses the venom sac and shoots it up along the spine which is now deeply embedded in your foot. – So it’s like stepping on a hypodermic needle that is upside down ready to squirt as soon as it has force applied. – Exactly. – OK that makes sense. – This is what we’re gonna use to stick over the spine of the stonefish so that’s gonna act like somebody’s foot. You’ve gotta get it the right thickness, so the spine will be like that and we’re gonna push this down over the top and it’ll squeeze the venom blades, and the venom will go boosh! – OK what do you do with the venom, as a toxinologist? – Ooh.. – I got it, I got it right! – Several things. One we’re trying to work out how it works, but one of the other things is we actually give it to the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories, who make an anti-venom for this thing. One of the most well used anti-venoms in Australia, because we probably get, I don’t know, seven, eight hundred, maybe a thousand people a year get stung by these things up the east coast of Australia. – Really? – Yeah. Someone’s gotta hold the fish and someone’s gotta put the thing down over its spine. – I can hold the fish, I ain’t scared. Am I capable of putting the rubber down over the spine? – It’s not hard. [laughs] – You do know me right? [laughs] – Ah maybe you should hold it then. Hold the fish like that. – Right. – And if he flicks, just hang onto him. – OK. I can do that. – I don’t think he’s gonna flick. I actually think we’ll use.. – I told my kids like when we’re doing stuff like this is hang on tight and don’t be scared. It’s like that here? – Exactly. Just remember if you let him go and I get nailed, I’m gonna so beat the crap out of you. – Alright. We’re gonna go 1920 by 1080 right? – Yep. – Alright what do you want? What 1500 frames per second? – Yep. – Got it? – Yep. – There it goes! – Good grief. And that would squirt into your foot? – Yep. [ music ] (In unison) Ohhhhh. (Jamie) Man, what a cameraman. This guy should get an Emmy award. – Ohhhh! (Destin) This guy does have an Emmy award, don’t you. – Yeah I’ve already got one of those. – That’s cool, look at that! (Destin) So how long does it take him to replenish that venom supply? – It’s now dependent on food. If they start feeding again, and they often don’t, but if you can get it feeding again, about 2-3 weeks. – Why would they not start feeding again? – They get grumpy. – Really. – We’ve had them in the lab here and often they won’t feed for 2-3 months. (Destin) And as you push down, that sac below.. (Jamie) There was a sac about here and a sac about there, so as it comes down, it comes down and it pushes on those sacs and there’s a little channel that runs up each side of the spine, so when the venom gets pushed out of the sac, it comes down the side of the spine and out the tip of the spine. – How sharp is that? – Yeah like a hypodermic needle. – That’s crazy man. – It’ll go clean through a wetsuit bootie. – Yeah? – We think it’s a pore formation venom, so it punches holes in things, in cell membranes and stuff. And it’s just designed for pain. – Really? – Pain, pain, pain and more pain. – Get away from me, I’m a bad fish. – Exactly. – OK point to the eye on this side. – So there’s an eye just there. – What?! – Yeah, just there. – Oh I see it! It’s very.. it’s clear. – Rocket scientists. (Destin) [laughs] Watch the cord, watch the cord. – Yep. Heh that’d be good, wouldn’t it. – Yeah, get some stonefish barbs in the face. – And get electrocuted at the same time. And there he goes. – Oh wow. – So here we are, filming one of the world’s ugliest animals. We have Destin, and we also have a stonefish. [laughs] This is the stonefish, and that’s the world’s ugliest animal. – Thank you. Alright let’s put him back. OK I hope you enjoyed that episode of Smarter Every Day about the stonefish just like we’re enjoying super hero hammock time, put your spiderman glasses on. Anyway, if you would like to support super hero hammock time and more Smarter Every Day episodes please go to audible.com/smarter and download a free audio book. Where do we listen to audio books? – In the car. – That’s right. Anyway if you would like to listen to a book, we’re reading one together right now at super hero hammock time. What book are we reading? – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. – That’s right, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. You can get that or any other audio book you want for free at audible.com/smarter. That helps Smarter Every Day and it helps us do things like spend daddy time together. – And tickle! – And tickle. Anyway, if you’d like to support us, audible.com/smarter. I’ll leave a link in the video description. Thank you so much. I’m Destin, you’re getting Smarter Every Day. Have a good one. Bye, can you say bye? Say bye. – Bye.

    MINI FISH & CHIPS

    Hello folks it is Barry here welcome to my
    virgin kitchen today we are doing another mini food if you have missed any of the mini
    foods already you can check out the playlist there should be a link here or in the description
    box down below loads of you have asked for a mini fish and chips that good old seaside
    classic and I am going to try and make your mini food dreams come true today without further
    ado we have all the tools here lets get cracking. It is fair to say folks we are building up
    quite a stash of mini food utensils many of these things including the cocktail sticks
    randomly have been sent in by you guys so thanks for that as always the rules are very
    simple we must fit the food on this teddy bear plate. The rip off winnie the pooh plate.
    The first ingredient is the humble baby potato we have a knife here and what I am going to
    do is turn this baby potato into chips. Which sounds a lot easier than it is but we will

    I do have fish for dinner tonight randomly within this pack I found this bit of fish
    which I do not even need to cut to size so it is kind of like the runt of the litter,
    it is perfect so we need to make our beer batter next.
    Oh my gosh it is not even 9 o clock in the morning and I am drinking beer I feel like
    I am on a stag do that I had to do that so it will not spill when I pour into this shot
    glass just a little bit of beer there yes about half full that is perfect and if it
    was past midday maybe I would have some more but that is enough for now.
    Ok so what I am doing is adding an eighth of a teaspoon at a time into our beer to make
    our beer batter so we are going to need a bit more than that you know what I actually
    ended up adding eight one eighths of a teaspoon so should have just used a teaspoon so lets
    mix this together what should I use lets use this toenail thing so we are going to push

    they really are teeny bits in there I am not going to need all the leaf, waste not want
    not all that stuff about half of it so we will just get through this.
    Turns out I do not have a device for mushing really so I am using the back end of a chop
    stick to mash down the peas and puree them. And we have made mushy minty peas look at
    that, cool. Lets turn that down a bit right folks this
    is the bit I am most scared of ok, and on the complete off chance you are trying these
    at home be very careful, we are going to fry both the chips and the fish in here separately
    I would normally oven bake my chips but this seems like too good an opportunity.
    So we will start by grabbing a chip with the tweezers, I wonder if these tweezers ever
    thought yeah I am going to be on youtube videos and stuff, here we go lets put it in the oil.
    Alright it is not coming off oh there it goes ok it is in there this oil is not red hot

    them nice and browned, it is on a super low heat and is cooking away like a dream.
    Look at that folks like a baby potato Jacuzzi they are starting to brown I have got my big
    tablespoon to hand that I am going to scoop these chips out any minute now and will rest
    them down. Amazing check out those fries, that is great.
    For the fish it needs a slightly larger pool of oil to sit in so I am warming this up again,
    so we will keep it low again but it is time to dunk the fish in the batter and then in
    there. Ok so it is time to grab the runt of the litter our fish into the batter, is it
    coming out yes, haha oh wow lets get it in the pan that looks weird.
    In it goes folks it is cooking away the batter has clinged on to the fish, in true fish and
    chip style the beer being carbonated makes bubbles so it should have that awesome fish
    and chip effect. It is starting to spit a bit so have turned
    the heat down the actual shape of it looks like a fish. An actual fish in there anyhow
    all we are trying to do now is get that nice brown colour.
    Look at that fish folks I am not sure where to place it no fish pun intended so lets serve
    it up straight away. Alright our rip off winnie the pooh plate
    is ready I have to say I love doing these mini foods I do find them quite a challenge,
    but lets get the chips down, just try and do a bit of styling on it look at that, flashy
    or what, one more chip. We will bring in our fish, look at that it just fits the requirements
    we are ok. So with the mushy peas my trusty one eighth of a teaspoon is going to help
    us out again, yes loving that a little bit more just because you know, why not.
    There we are then folks our mini fish and chips done, there is the beer bottle lid just
    for scale lets see what it tastes like. You are the cameo do you know what that is,
    it means you are making an appearance at the end, so this is some mini fish and chips do
    you want to have a try, you have to eat it in one big go, it is not a drink you are supposed

    The Infinadeck Omnidirectional Treadmill – Smarter Every Day 192 (VR Series)

    November 18, 2019


    Hey, it’s me, Destin. Welcome back to Smarter Every Day. A treadmill is a pretty simple device, right? You set the speed you want; you get on, you start moving. But you don’t actually go anywhere. This technology people have realized for a really long time is perfect for virtual reality Because you could walk somewhere and actually use your body but not leave the confines of your own home Okay here we are in California. We are at a company called Infinadeck. This is a small engineering outfit These guys make a 360 degree treadmill the one that’s in the movie ready player one so the interesting thing is they’re really small company But they’ve got a really cool idea, so let’s go check out how this thing works. All right, so this is George, and he owns Infinadeck right? Yeah All right And basically Infinadeck is a 360 degree treadmill technique. That is Is it safe to say that we’ve got treadmills on top of treadmills here? It’s a treadmill made of treadmills Okay. Treadmill made of treadmills So you can think of it as you’ve got one axis of rotation here and each individual Treadmill can move in this direction as well, right? Yeah So how do you ? So it’s a combination right obviously if you want to go X. This is our X direction. This is our Y X is nothing, but a treadmill you know like any other treadmill the Y it’s nothing, but the smaller treadmills right now we’re using the Vive tracker on you Right, so where is the, there they are right there. So your tracker’s on your rear We kind of artificially take you about seven or eight inches in front of that to get the middle of your CG And this tries to keep that middle of the CG in the middle of the treadmill right there. Oh I got you. So the, so the feedb- that was one of my main questions is what is the feedback loop? It’s a positional feedback loop. Yeah, it’s fairly simple right now. We’re making it better this that’s the part We’re gonna just keep improving for ever, years and years and years really? so the goal so you have an object and then Oh, I get it. It’s this is, this is called They’re very visual This is a semi autonomous command position sensor. That’s the best Specific way to say that, right? Now what we’re also doing on this one is You put foot trackers on when you combine the foot trackers the headset and your and your hand controllers You now have six different Points that is tracked on you, and that’s enough for us to give you an avatar George Jr told me if I screwed this little VR tracker into the bottom of the camera We can insert that camera into the virtual world Which of course we had to do So we’re ready? Yeah So I just I just get in? Yeah go ahead, so Alright Let me help you a little Okay? So first let’s do your feet Alright This is the CG you’re gonna put that on. Make the tracker meet like directly behind your back Okay So go on, put your headset This feels like I’m actually getting in the Oasis here Oh wow I can see the camera, in the virtual world If you look towards me you should see the two controllers? What the heck man! So we’re gonna have you do now Okay, okay. I’m trying to. This is just normal VR. So I can actually see the ring now That’s something I didn’t expect, so I can, it’s there Yeah Alright so now that’s I see my body too – what’s up with my body So we’re gonna sync that with you. So if I can have you stand with your legs straight down, and your arms straight out to your sides, like a T-pose? Three two one Did it work? Oh I can see my body! Wow Alright Okay, that’s rad. That’s really rad. Okay, gotcha so So right now you’re tracking the position of my hands and my feet Dude that is messed up! This – I’d like him – Alright So I can see the camera, the tic-tac there, but what’s more important is I can also see this ring And Griffin why did you say you have this ring in here? So this is there to kind of lock you down in the real world without being too much of a burden to say So this is like you know when you do an integral you get the plus C at the end So this is a boundary condition for me to kind of lock my brain into both worlds so this is like this tells me where I’m at virtually and Like actual my body, right? Absolutely Okay so, are you ready to start walking? I’m ready to start walking We’re gonna recommend you have your hands on the range when you first try this just so you get used to That’s okay, so when you start. Yeah. I thought it would make sense for you for it to put me in the center, okay So now right? What is trying to do is this trying to keep the CG of my back in the center of the ring, right? So I’m gonna touch this and as I walk Okay, it takes just okay. I’m there. Okay. I don’t want to hit that tree So I’m gonna turn this way Okay So I can’t really tell if I’m walking 90 degrees or not Okay, so there’s inertia in the rollers, okay? I thought there might be. So if I move backwards It’s gonna keep me there I move forwards So it takes just a second Just a couple seconds on the Infinadeck, and I instantly understood the problems that these guys have to overcome It’s pretty interesting It seems pretty simple: whatever direction a person walks, the Infinadeck moves in the opposite direction, whether it be X or Y, at the exact same velocity and acceleration. Think about a normal treadmill: your brain is doing all the processing. Your brain is constantly Solving the equation a treadmill velocity plus body velocity equals zero if at any point You don’t solve that equation correctly you start moving relative to the treadmill. This is a very similar problem, but it’s much harder It’s harder because there’s two dimensions That’s the obvious one But it’s also harder because the processing isn’t happening in your brain. That processing is offloaded to the Infinadeck which, oh by the way, can’t read your mind. There’s a delay time for the Infinadeck to figure out where your position is and try to change that… Yeah. Yes. …and if it tries to do it too quickly you know you can have an overdamped and under damped system is that correct? Yeah. Is that the right terminology? So, yeah So at the moment what we’re currently doing we’re trying to make it so that the acceleration on the user in any way that they’re not really tried experience is never more than 0.1 Gs got it Oh that seems to be about a good amount to not really be, you know disturbing for the user. Okay. We’re trying to figure out where exactly that isn’t how to do that if I walk forward I’m gonna feel an acceleration in one direction on my body because I’m pushing against the floor, right but then the floor is gonna move, and it’s gonna move my body in the opposite direction, so I’m going to feel an acceleration that’s negative, which is strange for, you know, a normal walking around human. Then, once I hit a steady state velocity, I’m gonna level out that acceleration in my mouth. My body’s gonna be cool with it right, but the moment I stop That’s a change in velocity and the Infinadeck has to accommodate for that. It has to move you back to the center gracefully and one thing that happens is if it tries to move you back too fast It’ll overshoot, and then it has to correct. So this is a really interesting engineering problem because it doesn’t have perfect knowledge of intent. Like, that that’s the difference with your brain you have intent and so when you’re walking in a normal treadmill you get to choose everything, right? but you have to understand over the last few years we had to, you know, build and modify the Infinadeck too along with the control system, and there’s only a few of us, so. Well. It’s been challenging all around. This is why the problem is interesting because when you’re walking in the world Right now my acceleration is zero And then when I stop I’m used to imparting acceleration to my body But that doesn’t happen till later Yes, it’s a work in progress how far you go back. It’s That’s clever. That’s it’s a challenge. That’s a that’s a hard math problem one thing I thought was really cool is you can use this to be a different size in the virtual world just by changing a Constant right you can scale How many steps it takes to get around in the earth? Just by a scale factor, but literally a scaler, that’s often. Oh, there’s the same boat look at that It’s a dude. It’s like I want to jump I’m just Too small to get it Too small to go to my boat and *laughs* That’s fun. That’s really fun that the model… There’s my bench. Look behind you, there’s my bench before In engineering we have these assignments called technology readiness levels There’s nine of them, and I would say this is somewhere between a six and a seven Which means there’s a working prototype that works, and they’re just refining the subsystems they’re about to go to production So it’s really cool to be able to walk on This Infinadeck before it goes out into mainstream production and see the behind the scenes engineering things they’re having to solve. It’s really interesting. So, it’s clear George knows all this I mean he instantly understands all the variables I asked him about That how tall the person was like if you think about it your center of mass is at a different length and so that moment arm is different you have to deal with inertia differently like from the bottom of it. It’s really interesting anyway This is me talking to George and you can tell he totally gets it. I I can imagine that the the inertia Overcoming that inertia is different for each person because if I’m 175 pounds and I move here It takes a certain amount of torque I’ll cut the deck off now. It takes a certain amount of torque for these motors to move me and That’s going to change based on the size of the person, is that correct? That’s correct that. It’s more about your acceleration than the inertia. The the deck is capable of moving a lot faster than you can move. So so we could pull your feet out from under you if we ever, you know, had it set to do so. So all the algorithms stuff will will have more to do with other variables, like your CG, CG imbalance. And there’s a moment arm between the distance from my feet to where my CG is, right? So, so the acceleration that you put there, there’s gonna be this lag time in my brain where I try to counteract that, is that correct? Very much. All right, this is the part of video where I tell you about the sponsor and, you know, a lot of people fast-forward through this part, but you know this is the important part because we wouldn’t be doing this if I hadn’t have listened to Ready Player One on Audible. I’m not gonna tell you about ready player one. You know that’s old news at this point, I’m gonna tell you about the new book that I’m listening to. The sponsor is Audible you can get a free book by going to audible.com/smarter or texting the word “smarter” to 500-500 The new book that I’m listening to is called “Twelve Rules for Life” by Jordan Peterson, “an Antidote for Chaos.” Now, I’m listening to this book because I heard some podcast with the author. There’s a lot of people talking about this book I wanted to check it out because he doesn’t believe things that I believe in fact he takes a third party-like perspective look at some of the things I believe and so that helps me get outside myself and grow a little bit So I really enjoy it. If you’re not listening to audiobooks, you really should be. You’re smart people; you know this part is a big deal for me, and I know this part can be a big deal for you, because audiobooks literally have changed my life. So, Audible.com/smarter, that’s how you can support Smarter Every Day, or text the word “smarter” to 500-500. Thank you for considering that. Last thing. I wanna say thanks to the guys at Infinadeck. A treadmill made of treadmills, that is insane. You’re there man, this is just a control systems problem at this point, isn’t it? We just need some control engineers. We ought to hire a couple. That’s what this is at this point. At this point, it’s just computer stuff and math so this is doable I hope you enjoyed this video enough to subscribe. If you do there’s a little bell beside the subscription button. If you haven’t enjoyed it enough to hit the bell to get a notification on your phone every time I upload, then don’t. That’s completely okay. Anyway, I’m Destin. You’re getting Smarter Every Day. Have a good one. Thanks for learning with me You’re gonna fall. You fell. You jumped. Whatever. What are you doin’? Why you makin’ noise?

    How To Make Marine Electrical Connections On Your Boat | BoatUS

    September 1, 2019


    Hi, I’m Mark Call from Boat US Magazine
    and welcome to the workshop today i’m going to show you how to make perfect
    electrical connections we don’t need a lot of tools i’ve got a pair of
    combination strippers crimpers here these are the cheap kind if you’re going
    to do much more than a few joints here and there it’s a good idea to invest in
    a pair of ratcheting crimpers makes it better join and actually it’s easier to
    use a pair of wire cutters in case I need to cut some wire I’ve got a little
    blowtorch here and I’ll show you how that we use that in a second and then
    obviously we’ve got the cable itself so I’ve got the cable here this is a 16
    gauge cable it’s worth mentioning that cable as the number gets larger the
    cable gets smaller so 0 gauge cable is so big and it’s typically for the big
    fat connectors that you see to your battery this is 16 gauge obviously it’s
    law smaller and then when you go up to 24 gauge that would be the sort of cable
    that you would see attached to an LED light or something that’s not drawing
    much current anyway so as I said we’re using 16 gauge also here you’ll notice
    that I’ve got a selection of connectors you’ll see here they’ve got yellow blue
    and red and that refers to the size of crimp that you’ll need yellow is the
    largest blue and then red so let’s go right ahead and show you how to make the
    joint now I’ve already stripped back the
    cables on the end there just to save a little bit of time this is the connector
    that we’re going to be using as I said this is a 16 gauge connector connector
    actually goes inside inside the plastic and there’s a little dimple there and
    that’s where the conductor or the metal part of the cable comes up to so ideally
    you want to strip back enough so that when that goes in it comes up halfway
    through the connector and then this shoulder of the insulation here comes up
    on the outside so there’s no metal part showing so first thing I’m going to do
    is to take the crimper and you’ll see there’s blue there so I put that in the
    center one there and just go half way first of all when you put that in and we
    squeeze until it will go no further and then it will release and your
    see that has already formed a nice joint on that end so we just turn it around
    and put in the other cable now you’ll notice that I’m using the red and black
    normally we’d never join these two cables together the only reason I’m
    doing it is just to show you how we would do this so this just for
    illustrative purposes only we crimped that together so it won’t go anymore
    comes apart and they’ve got a nice joint there next thing we do is take the
    little blow torch that we mentioned earlier now this is a heat shrink
    connector some of the connectors that you’ll see or you’ll get will not have
    heat shrink built in they’ll just have a regular kind of straight connector and
    you’ll need to cover it with a piece of heat shrink this you cut two lengths
    with pair of pliers you slip it over the cable obviously you slip it over the
    cable before you make the connection slide it over and then you heat it with
    this little blowtorch and it will shrink and it will give you a nice watertight
    perfectly good connection so I’m just going to go ahead now and just heat this
    up gently you don’t want to overheat this and actually set something on fire
    so I’m keeping it moving and little by little that will shrink around the cable
    and you’ll see the color of the cable comes through the insulation and that’s
    it then you just let that cool down for a minute and there we are we’ve got a
    perfect joint now so I hope you’ve learned something here today for more

    iBobber Sonar Fish Finder Tutorial – How to use video

    August 29, 2019


    Now, being able to read the water is a huge advantage as a fishermen. On the surface and lakes and rivers they all look pretty much the same. But its subsurface where it all happens. There’s banks of weed, troughs, gullies, these are all brilliant fish holding spots. And it’s particularly important in summer but imagine what it’s like in winter when the fish really shoaled up. If you could understand what was under the the water you could try and those shoals of fish straight away. Now thanks to some new technology the ibobber, we can now see under water you can find the features and you can find the fish. Let me explain how it works. So what exactly is an iBobber? Well it’s a castable sonar device. So what’s sonar all about? Well it’s the sort of stuff the trawler men used two use years ago and still use it now to check the seabed to find out where the shoals of fish are so they can scoop them up and you can have cod and chips down the chippy. All that technology has now been refined into a tiny little device here is, you can cast it out, you can read the lake bed, you can find where the fish are. It’s amazing technology. Let me show you how you make it work on the bank The first step to start seeing under water and finding your fish is to get the thing powered up. Now it comes with a USB lead you plug it in, there’s a normal plug or into your laptop or computer. Now this Bobber goes into the port, attach it so like that and it does start to glow blue you’ll see it easier obviously if it was a darker room. And you just let it charge, and that charge will stay in the iBobber for up to a month. So its pretty long lasting. Now step 2 of this simple procedure of setting up is to download the app. It’s a free app, and again it’s simple to do from the App Store. You can use it on your mobile phone or indeed a tablet. Now it uses latest technology. It uses Bluetooth 4. Now that means there’s less of a drain than previous models and also it’s less intermittent so you get a more powerful connection. Once the iBobber is charged you need to
    sync the two together. So you take it off charge so you just knock it off like that. And then from the app you start to fill in your details. So you’ll put your email address in, your own tagline, mine’s Esox1969 after pike and the year my birth becuase I’m a pike fanatic, and then you’ll be able to start to build your details on your phone and personalise the connection between the two. Now step four, well that’s about getting down the lake or river and giving it a go. What you gotta do is attach this to your rod and reel. You need a fairly strong rod, I use carp rod with a shock leader on it. but you could just use any many powerful-ish rod. It weighs about 2 ounces so it doesn’t want to be something that’s going to break. You cast it out and you start to get the information on your phone or on your tablet. Now the first thing I’m going to show you is mapping the water. Now this is really important like I said before it’s the underwater world, the contours, the gullies, the weed beds, this is where the fish sit, and its a trick I’ve used many times with the iBobber to catch me some big carp, as well as pike and tench. Now all you’ve got to do, this thing switches on when it hits the water. Lay it down, and I’m going to go into the app, into the section marked mapping water. It’s at the top of your screen. You’ll see a little arrow pointing to an underwater map. Click it on, and it tells you to cast out. So let’s flick it out. Now this will map to a hundred feet out, and over hundred feet of water, a hundred and thirty-foot I think as much as. So you cast it out, and you refer to your app and it tells you to start mapping. Press OK. And then start to reel in slowly. Now don’t
    do it too fast and nice and steady and slow two feet per second is the default setting but you can change it to suit yourself. Wind in slowly and all the time it’s emitting sonar beams down to the bottom and back again and gathering all that information up. When you’ve got to the edge, go back to your app, and counts down the three seconds and it delivers the map of the lake bed or the riverbed wherever you fishing and
    you can start to understand the contours and then where the fish might be living. Now another crucial part of the iBobber is the finding the fish feature. Now this lets you identify where shoals of fish or individual fish are. It will tell you what depth they are lying at so you can choose the kind of rig you need, so if you were carp fishing you could use a ‘zig rig’ up in the water or a bottom bait. Or if you were lure lure fishing you might use crankbait lower down the water or maybe even a surface popper if they were high. So you can understand where they’re sitting in the water column. Also, it will tell you the size of fish. So there’s an orange tag on the fish that says they’re sort of
    smaller maybe under 15 inches and a green coloured one that says they’re
    bigger. It’s a good indicator to give you sort of a pointer to what you’re after. Another great advantage with iBobber is it can be used at night when the fish are often the most active. By using the status bar you can put the light on inside. So cast it out and you’ll be able to see it. Also on the device in the status bar you’ve got a fish alarm, and that can activate when it goes over a fish. OK so we’ve seen how it works. The best thing now is to stay active I mean the fish aren’t always going to come to you you need to go to them sometimes. So I’m going to wander around find some spots either some spots fish on the water or some nice contours
    where I think will be perfect set a trap and put a bait. And I’m gonna sit back and see if it pays off. Well I’ve had a good look around. I’m going to make a few more casts. This looks a nice spot to push your way through here to the
    reeds and there’s a bit the tree there. If this had a nice shelf, I could find the drop off and then put a bait there. So I quite fancy this if it looks right underwater. So lets cast out. And of course with these things are hardly makes any splash. So you’re not going to scary anything that’s there there either. Lets have a look. OK, we’ve crept into position. We’ve got a lot of cover here so when I cast out, flick it out. Now, it’s activated because the iBobber is in water. Lets go to the app. Now we’re going to go on underwater mapping and it’s telling me to, 3-2-1 yep. So now I can start retrieving. So I’m going to do two feet per second, something like that. Steady anyway, don’t have to be too precise. Now there’s been no disturbance so whatever is down there isn’t going to be scared off. But you might do if you were using a mark float. That’s it. We’re in. So press it again, and then I’ve got it. An underwater map of the contour here. It’s about two feet and then it drops off down a slope and then steadies away. So it’s the bottom of that slope I want to be because that’s where the fish are going to be patrolling along that so it’s a nice drop off let’s put a trip down there and leave it and see how we go. Lets keep quiet. So there you have it. iBobber really works I’ve used it to catch carp on lakes by positioning bottom baits near shelvs. I’ve used it to catch really big pike in Ireland I’ve just dangled all this thing off the edge of a boat and been able spot the underwater features, and shoals of silverfish. It’s a really great tool and that uses the latest technology so it doesn’t drain
    your battery. But the best thing about it is the price. It’s under a hundred pounds. You can’t go wrong.

    New very simple dripper tracker! Use as part of your solar tracker to get more power from your PV

    August 16, 2019


    Here is the dripper tracker concept There is a string attached at the top. The red string is attached at the bottom As this float rises The yellow string goes up and the red string goes down and the black thing over there turns and if the float falls it goes in the opposite direction Oops, it is caught (quick model that wasn’t attached) As you can see one goes up and one goes down and it is all caused by the water falling. Generally it would be up at the start and the water would go down over time The water level is controlled by the height of the tube which slowly falls down and empties the barrel The half full float weighs 25 kg and only needs to be 5 kg to do its job. The emptying rate can be controlled in a whole bunch of different ways It is a non’ mechanical way of getting the circular motion that you need for solar tracking So this is called “equatorial mount” or “equatorial platform” when you have a rotating axis that points at the north star so it is called equatorial mount or polar mount and it is a way of aiming solar cookers that solar panels you point this at the north star and rotate you mount your solar appliance on this platform So the dripper tracker applies the rotational energy to turn the appliance on the platform.

    How to Make a Simple Pop Pop Boat

    August 14, 2019


    Today I’m going to show you how to make a really
    cool candle powered pop pop boat using household items. To make it we’re going to need an empty drinks can,
    some Blu-Tack, 2 straws and an empty juice carton. First we’re going to make the boiler, and
    we’ll start by taking the Coke can cutting off the top and bottom with a pair of
    scissors, and turning it into a flat sheet. Then we’ll cut a straight line down one edge, and from
    that mark out a rectangle 6cm wide by 18cm long. Be very careful not to cut yourself. Once we’ve cut that out we need to gently fold it in half, but don’t
    push down hard on the fold as we don’t want it to tear. Next we need to mark out a 1cm
    line around one half of the boiler and cut it out with our scissors, so we
    should now have something which looks like this. Next we’re going to take out Bu-Tack, warm it up in our hands
    and roll it out into a long worm about 0.5cm fat. Then we’re going to open up our boiler pattern and stick the
    Blu-Tack onto the 2 outside edges of the smaller half. Next we’re going to fold it in half, remembering
    not to push down hard on the fold and stick the two halves together. Then we’re going to take a bit more
    Blu-Tack and put it on the edges. It should look like this. Next we’re going to fold over the tabs on both sides, and gently crimp
    it all the way up with some pliers to form a seal. Then we need to take our scissors and cut off the
    excess tab to leave one long tab along the bottom. Next we’re going to take our Blu-Tack and push
    it into a flat strip about 1cm wide. Then we’re going to wrap it around the end of
    one of the straws, followed by the second. Add a bit more until the straws are well
    sealed in a good plug of Blu-Tack. Next we’re going to open up the end of the
    boiler, be very careful not to cut your fingers and push in the straws and Blu-Tack plug. Add a bit more Blu-Tack to form a good
    tight seal. It should look like this. Then we’re going to take our scissors and cut the
    bottom tab along each side of the straws. Next fold the tabs over and give them a squeeze with some
    pliers, but be careful not to rip the metal. Our boiler is not complete. Next we need to test it’s air tight by dipping it into
    a bowl of water and gently blowing through the straws. If you see any air leaking, give that area a
    gentle squeeze with the pliers and try again. To make the boat we’re going to take our empty juice carton, mark out and
    draw a line down the middle of it, and cut it in half. To make the cabin for the inside of the boat, cut
    the bottom off the half with the plastic lid. or if you have another empty juice carton, you can cut
    the bottom off that to make a slightly bigger cabin. I’ve also cut out some windows and we’ll be fixing that in place later. Next we need to cut a small hole in the bottom
    of the boat for the 2 straws to go through. This should be roughly half way up the carton an in the middle. Then we need to put a thin ring of
    Blu-Tack around the hole on both sides. Next we’re going to take our boiler and
    poke the 2 straws through the hole. Then we’re going to fix the straws firmly in place to the
    bottom of the boat with a strip of tape, Making sure the straws run to the back
    of the boat and are central. Then cut the straws off flush with the back of the boat. Next using a stapler we’re going to fix the cabin in place. And finally we need to make sure the Blu-Tack rings around
    the straws are pushed together to form a good seal. Our boat is now water tight and complete, but to use
    it we first need to prime the boiler with water. To do this we’re going to take one of
    our straw off cuts and snip the end. Then we’re going to poke it into one of
    the straws at the back of the boat and with a mouth full of clean water, blow water through
    the system until it comes out of the other straw. The boiler is now primed and ready to use. All we need to do now is drop a candle under the middle of the
    boiler, put it into the bath, and wait for it to warm up. It shouldn’t take long for the boiler to start popping, and off she goes. After a while you might find that the boiler leaks and doesn’t work properly,
    in which case you might need to seal it with some more Blu-Tack. Or if you have any you could make a
    boiler using epoxy glue rather then Blu-Tack. This is far more durable and should last a lot longer. You can paint your boat using a waterproof acrylic paint if you like, you
    can also spray it with a waterproofing lacquer to help protect it. But make sure it’s completely dry before you use it. If it’s taking a while to get going, try dropping a second
    candle underneath the boiler. This should help speed things up. If you like this project, maybe you’d like to take a look at some of
    my other videos by clicking on the links on the right hand side. Or take a look at my youtube channel page. Have fun and happy boating!
