Heineken conducted a bold social experiment, pairing up people with very different opinions about an important issue in a room together to work on a project. Only after they spent some time together, was the truth revealed about their diametrically-opposed points of view.
Wonder Woman and her insignia are often adopted by people fighting for recognition and equality. And for good reason. Kaptainkristian traced the origins of the superhero to remind us that Diana Prince was born from a progressive and optimistic (albeit egotistical) mind.
Meet Glenda. She’s fortunate enough to be able to check out some of the galaxy’s wonders. Sadly, she’s just like many other tourists. Animator Someone’s Ex says they made this to tide us over until Rick & Morty resumes. It’s got potential. Unless Glenda ruins that too.
Goro Fujita’s “short film” is a looping snapshot of a suburban area. So what makes it so special? It’s entirely in 3D, made for and within virtual reality. Goro spent 80 hours making it in Quill, an illustration app for the Oculus Rift that lets you make both 2D and 3D visual art.
(PG-13: Language) “I don’t really listen to what I say.” The Mayor of Flavortown dials down his energy levels a couple of notches to have a very enjoyable chat over hot wings. And only hot wings. Watch him talk about his catchphrases, hanging out with rappers and more.

Volcanoes and lightning working together? No thanks. Mental Floss‘ John Green returns to the salon to share some interesting and unusual tidbits about the fury and mystery of nature’s fiery earthmaking engines. Also, they really should think about renaming Iceland “Fire and Iceland.”

Screen Junkies smacks down Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher’s film about the world’s largest social network, which apparently was started by some of the most antisocial people on the planet. Er wait, is this entire movie Fake News? Time to rework the algorithm.
Techmoan looks back at one of the odder bits of tech that video game maker Atari created. The Atari Video Music was an analog device that could produce a lightshow on your TV using your stereo system as its input. While it wasn’t a hit, the Atari 2600 was their next release.
John Edmark has created a variety of static and kinetic objects, many of which share a common thread – spirals, which he uses because of their potential to go both infinitely small and infinitely large – a reflection of the endless nature of the universe. More here and here.
During Star Wars Celebration, a veritable army of robot builders got together in one room to let their R2-D2s, BB-8s, and other assorted droids meet each other. It’s like a dog park for droids, and it should be open every day of the year. Kudos to Michael McMaster for the video.
Impressionist Mikey Bolts takes on the 1999 Blackalicious classic Alphabet Aerobics, matching each letter of the alphabet to a cartoon character, and raps each part in their voice. We swear, the more we look at Mikey, the more we think he’s actually Peter Brady.
We’re not sure we’ve had enough caffeine to handle the enthusiasm of the Aussie surfer dude presenting this video from Better Homes and Gardens, but we can certainly get behind the design of this cool piece of DIY furniture, which can change forms to suit a variety of needs.
