How LCDs work

A little video I put together to explain how liquid crystal displays work, using pasta, stair gates, wool, a hair dryer and some polarizing filters.

A Short History of Proteins in Ink.

I teach a short course called Nature’s Robots (blatantly copying the title of Tanford and Renynolds’ book of the same name). It’s a potted history of protein science. I got bored of reading essays so I asked the students to create a short video on the subject instead.

One of thems produced this absolutely beautiful set of ink drawings.

In future I’ll just show students this video and sparing them my lectures!
