Some tidbits from the Exploratorium's new location.
They had a camera setup that let you make your own stop motion movies! You were supposed to be able to upload them to YouTube, but we couldn't figure that out, so I used shot their computer screen with a digital camera, uploaded that to my computer, then used Vine on my phone to shoot my computer screen. :P)
These should all be animated. If any of them are still, try clicking it.
Shelley Chang made this one:
Here's the one I made. It's not as good. I even had to slow down the second half of the animation in iMovie a bit because I made it too fast. :\ That's supposed to be a B-2 Bomber.
This is an exhibit of some sort of magnetic liquid. You hold a magnet underneath to make spooky patterns.
And finally, they had a slow motion camera setup. I chose to slap myself. I don't think I slapped hard enough, but you get the idea. :)
(I really wish there were a way to upload short videos directly to Vine so I could have their cool auto-looping display tech without having to shoot with my phone.)
