Wired science visualizations

Some very interesting science videos and pictures. These are from the 2010 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge and are Wired's top 10 picks. My favorite is the colliding galaxies video.

Cornell Kinematic Model Library

This webpage has pictures and explanations of many kinematic mechanisms and models. They seem to be from collections from various sources. Very good brainstorming resource.

1930 Mechanical Principles video

Found on

A whole bunch of mechanisms that seem to be part of a large setup for demonstration. Almost all of these mechanisms are in 507 Mechanical Movements, Mechanisms, and Devices.
