Printing unlicensed, untraceable 3D guns from home with the click of a button- a radical idea or a scary reality?

leave a comment »


This short documentary produced by Vice Magazine’s science and technology dedicated video channel MOTHERBOARD takes a inside look at the mastermind behind the creation and distribution of downloadable files that contain the blueprints for a 3D printed gun part that allows anyone with a computer and a 3D printer to create an unlicensed, untraceable fully-automatic gun. This video was extremely thorough pertaining to the information it was reporting. The testimonial from Cody Wilson, the creator of the idea, was captivating and to be honest, a bit horrifying. The creators of this video did an excellent job of striking a nerve and keeping the viewer’s undivided attention without putting a spin on the way it was reported. This video is shocking and relevant. I highly suggest that you take the time to watch this one.

Science news, how hard are people capable of loving?

with one comment

I was particularly impressed by this video I found on SCOPE, because I have a passion for science, but I think anyone can watch this video and be amazed. Every teenager who has claimed to be in love before has probably had the “I love you more” argument. It goes something like this: “I love you more,” “No, I love you more,” “No really, I love you more!” Well, scientists the Stanford Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging sought to find out whether or not there is any validity behind this age old argument. The scientists conducted an experiment to determine whether or not proof exists that one person can literally love harder than another person. This video is absolutely amazing. Well put together, film and music wise, this short multimedia piece warmed my heart and almost brought me to tears. The results of the experiment will shock you!
