RF Cafe - Human Tetris on YouTubeHuman Tetris. Must be college students - who else would have the time (and ability)?
RF Cafe - 1/2th scale X-Wing Fighter model rocket launchWatch this amazing Star Wars X-Wing Fighter 1/2-size model rocket launch. The building skill is phenomenal. Skip to about the middle to see just the launch. According to reliable witnesses, here is what really happened.
RF Cafe: U.S. Navy's new electric rail gun video"It's almost a shame that the Navy's electromagnetic railgun (EMRG) can fire projectiles at targets up to 200 nautical miles away. If the enemy could see this thing fire, they'd surrender immediately."
RF Cafe: Lenz's Law demonstrationHere is a great practical demonstration of Lenz's Law. This is a fitting video for posting on Heinrich Lenz's birthday.
Twin Solid State Musical Tesla Coils in ConcertTwin Tesla Coils played the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy at the Lawn Teslathon in Baraboo, WS. There are no speakers; the music comes from the coils.

Crosby was there to tape what would prove to be his final Christmas TV special (he died on October 14, 1977 — 33 days after taping the duet) and he invited Bowie to appear as a guest star.
Crayon Physics - watch the YouTube videoHere is an amazing piece of software that uses a light pen to allow the user to draw simple physical machines and set them in motion according to physical laws. You will want one.
Fabrication d'une lampe triode - Making a triode tubeFabrication d'une Lampe Triode. Wow - thanks to Cornell for this! Here is a truly amazing video of a master craftsman building a triode vacuum tube from raw materials - including shaping the glass, assembling the electrodes and plates, pulling the vacuum, and finally plotting the transconductance. It nearly brought a tear to my eye.
Möbius Transformations Revealed A video that's worth a million words. This short film depicts the beauty of Möbius Transformations. The movie demonstrates how moving to a higher dimension can make such transformations easier to understand.
Replication of the original "Pong" video gameBrookhaven National Laboratory's Willy Higinbotham created this precursor to "Pong" for “Visitor’s Day” in 1958. The video shows the controllers and circuit board - complete with mechanical relays that cause the sound.
Martin Rowe's hit song, "Electrical Heroes"He just can't help himself. Test & Measurement World's Martin Rowe has come up with yet another Top 16 dB*  hit, "Electrical Heroes." This tribute to Volta, Ampere, Hertz, et al, should not be missed. Here are the lyrics. *16 dB = 40
Custom brass telegraph sounder clacking out a Craigslist feed - by SteamPunkCustom brass sounder clacking out a Craigslist feed. This and other solenoids from the Steampunk Workshop are true works of art. If you appreciate a mix of technology and aesthetics, this is a must-see website.
