I have three final exams this week, so what better time to be watching videos! No, not on YouTube, but on MIT Tech TV (http://techtv.mit.edu/about/)! If you think MIT students are too smothered with work to let their creative juices flow, think again.
On May 18th, they announced the winners of their Tech Video Showcase. Watch the videos and judge for yourself… I swear you’ll enjoy them!
1st Place: Godel Escher Bach for Kids! —http://techtv.mit.edu/file/95/
2nd Place: Spice Cream —http://techtv.mit.edu/file/68/
3rd Place: Aaron and His Buddy — http://techtv.mit.edu/file/96/
Special Jury Prizes
Best Technical Execution: Media Lab at Night — http://techtv.mit.edu/file/31/
Most “MIT”: The Making of Mens et Manus (in Origami) Vol. 1 — (Does Brian look familiar? That’s because I’ve blogged about him!) http://techtv.mit.edu/file/93/
Best Satire: Dihydrogen Monoxide — http://techtv.mit.edu/file/94/
Which one is your favorite?
This is cool.
I saw the video about the… i think it’s called screambody. anyway, that thing is GENIUS! I need one of those lol
Boo, hiss! It doesn’t work on the Wii browser!
Haha! I really enjoyed Spice Cream and Dihydrogen Monoxide: what better phrase is there than Willy Nilly! Ok maybe Mens et Manus. Peace!
Wonderful! Take Xeno’s Paradox and dress it up as a kid’s show. Who knows, maybe future kids will be learning about the infinite divisibility of time on TV instead of all this Cow Goes Moo rubbish.
Zeno. Dammit, Pratchett.
Yes…definitely a portent of things to come. Interestingly enough, JP (the film’s star) is a friend of mine, and he is also a content creator for OpenLabWare (olw.mit.edu).
I enjoyed the UROP video — portent of things to come?
