Not many project demos go as per plan. I found this image and remind me of the times when things didn’t go exactly as per plan but we were eventually save ourselves from the embarrassment. What memories do you have related to project demos? Let us know in comments below.

This happened to take place in RMIT Computer lab in Melbourne, Australia. Probably an experiment. In the first stage, the balls climb haphazardly up the escalator eventually leading to the formation of a relatively uniform mixture in each step of the escalator in the second stage. These then, cluster at the top. Do you think...

This is what happens when you pour lava on ice

This GIF shows Syracuse University lava project performed on January 22, 2011. The lava temperature at the start of the pour was 1472 degrees celsius. 610lbs of melted dresser trap rock was poured on a sheet of 6 inches thick ice. The lava flows on the ice after which it starts hardening into the rock. It...

Do you know there exists frozen smoke?

This is Aerogel; the lightest solid material on planet Earth. It is produced by removing all liquid from silica gel. Aerogel provides 39 times more insulation than the best fiberglass. It is an excellent insulator. It can also hold up to 4,000 times its own weight in force. For application purposes, it is used for insulating space...

Slicing a water droplet using a superhydrophobic surface and a knife

A superhydrophobic surface repels water, and water droplets hitting this kind of surface rebound completely. It is almost impossible to wet these surfaces, therefore, possible...

A superhydrophobic surface repels water, and water droplets hitting this kind of surface rebound completely. It is almost impossible to wet these surfaces, therefore, possible for holding and performing experiments with water or other fluids on them. Researchers from the department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Arizona State University in the US used super repelling knives...

This is world’s largest air canon which can crumple a wall of cardboard boxes from 300ft

World’s largest air canon was built in collaboration with a TV program ‘Wonders of Nature’ in the Czech Republic. This air cannon can send out a swirl of air up to 300 feet. You can see this because they added a bit of smoke. This GIF demonstrates the experiment where this pile of 196 cardboard boxes...

This gemstone is known as Alexandrite which is emerald by day and becomes ruby by night. This gemstone changes its color depending on whether the light is coming from the candle or the sun. Reason being the fact that light from the sun peaks in green so Alexandrite appears green in sunlight while light from candle...

Leonardo’s Odometry mechanism has been used since it’s invention for measuring the distance travelled. It looks like a wheelbarrow and comes with sprocket wheels. The wheel takes a step with every turn of the hub of the wheel that rests on the ground. The vertical sprocket wheel has a peg which meshes with the horizontal...

Pump Cochrane mechanism was first introduced by Lord Cochrane in around 1840. This is modeled with Solidworks 2015 and rendered with Simlab Composer. The applications of chamber-crank gear can be found in a ventilator. It is taken from “Kinematics of Machinery: Outlines of a Theory of Machines”, by Franz Reuleaux.
