This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

Thanks @nonhoration.

Eddie Murphy at the 60th Academy Awards in 1988

I had to cut this speech down to be able to fit it into a gifset so I uploaded the full thing to youtube and recommend checking it out for yourself.

I never knew this happened. Thank you for doing this.

Sometimes you gotta be that person to make things awkward because it’s necessary

This is the inFORM Dynamic Shape Display from MIT. And it may be gypsy magic.

There’s a Kinect camera watching the demonstrator, tracking his movements, when are then transferred to a computer, which sends to an array of pillars, which move up and down accordingly using actuators.

You can use it to transfer the actual movements of your hands, so you could remotely handle objects, like in the first 2 gifs, or you can use it for 3-D modelling like in the other two, like how he uses gestures to pull a cube of the table.

Basically it’s the crazy map from the first X-Men, or the first generation of Fitz and Simmons holotable in Agents of SHIELD. Imagine what you could with this, remote handling of hazardous materials, actually 3-D movies, conference calls that could actually project what you’re doing.

The future is awesome.

Why don’t we talk about Kevin Grevioux as much as we should? 

Here we have an actor, stuntman, producer, and creator. Mr. Grevioux created the Underworld series of films for Columbia Pictures and starred as Raze. He also created a pair of comic houses, Astonishing Studios and DarkStorm Studios and has written a number of titles including New Warriors for Marvel. While at Marvel, he also created Adam Brashear, the Blue Marvel, who is now a core member of the Mighty Avengers. He also voiced the sinister Black Beetle on Young Justice: Invasion. A theatrical film adaptation of another one of his comic creations, I, Frankenstein, is set to be released later this month. 

Definitely someone who should be on your creative radar.

He is also a man of science. From Wikipedia.

He graduated from Howard University in Washington, D.C. with a degree in Microbiology with minors in both chemistry and psychology, afterwards attending graduate school working towards a Masters degree in Genetic Engineering.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Grevioux

Ever since I saw the first Underworld, and looked him up, he has been an inspiration. I want to be Kevin Grevioux when I grow up.
