Some fun stuff

3D printers are becoming very popular. What if there was a 3D printer that could simply print your dinner? Well that’s what the Spanish company called Natural Machines is trying to do. It’s creating a kitchen appliance called “Foodini” (image) that prints your food. You do need to provide the machine with fresh ingredients.

Here are three videos: one on Foodini, another about the “Power of Optics”, and the last about the math behind Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” painting.

Vincent van Gogh, one of the most famous painters of all times, was born in 1853 in a village in the Netherlands. He started painting in his late twenties. His life as an artist flourished after he moved to France. His use of bright colors in his paintings was representative of some of his famous artwork. Van Gogh suffered from a mental illness, and he even cut off part of his ear. In his later years, he was in and out of hospitals and clinics. His Starry Night was made while he was living at a clinic. He shot himself at the age of 37 and died. Van Gogh produced more than 2,000 pieces of artwork, and he became famous after his death.
