Styrofoam dancing to sound waves

gif of dancing sound waves

Put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don’t care.

What looks like a dubstep rave is actually styrofoam dancing to sound waves in a massive flexiglass pipe. The faux mosh pit is the result of a process called sound looking which demonstrates what audible vibrations may actually look like.

Watch the entire video below.

Creativity is rejected: Teachers and bosses don’t value out-of-the-box thinking.

A Cornell study makes the case that social rejection is not actually bad for the creative process—and can even facilitate it. The study shows that if you have the sneaking suspicion you might not belong, the act of being rejected confirms your interpretation. The effect can liberate creative people from the need to fit in and allow them to pursue their interests.

Rejection ignites more creativity. The perfect balance though is getting some conformists to believe in your idea so you can actually make it happen. Good ideas need capital too.

Who Made That Built-In Eraser?

“To keep our past failures ever before us would cause us to continue to fail…take out your pencil, rub out the mark and start over again.”

The eraser, an American origin to fit the American mentality of making mistakes and learning from failure.

After all, the right answer is a function of the mistakes you make.

Now, just imagine the computer without the “Delete” button.

The Paradox of Choice – Why More is Less

The more options you have, the more likely you will experience regret.

When asked about what they regret most, people name failures to act.

Pick something, go with it, and be willing to be wrong instead of regretting inaction altogether.
