I stumbled across a fascinating series of videos on YouTube last week, on the theme “will it blend?”.
It is advertising for a company that sells industrial-strength blenders so, i you are in the market for such things, beware the advertising mojo. However, it is fascinating to see what these machines will do to sundry objects, such as marbles, golf balls and cans of coke.
Do their blenders really do that? I’m not sure (some of the experiments display a prominent “do not try this at home” message) but, taken as somewhere on the line between science and science fiction, they form a fascinating set of short distractions.
