  3. littleBits is a system of electronic modules that snap together with magnets. We built littleBits to break the boundaries between the products we consume and the things we make, and to make everyone into an inventor.

    Each littleBit has one unique function (light, sound, sensors, buttons), and with different combinations you can make large circuits. littleBits allows you to create interactive projects without any background in engineering, programming or wiring, in a few seconds. It's as easy as snapping LEGO bricks together. And the best part is, it's open source!

    This video was entirely made with littleBits, check out the individual projects at: http://www.littleBits.cc/community

    We’ve been featured in the New York Times magazine, acquired by MoMA for the museum’s collection, called by Bloomberg TV “LEGO for the iPad generation“, won "Best of ToyFair 2012", and we're not tired one bit!

  4. The wonder of the night sky has been a constant since the dawn of civilization. It has inspired countless generations, poets, scientists and dreamers. Today this natural resource is threatened by the careless use of artificial light.

    It's International Dark Sky Week, April 20 - 26, 2014. Let's spread an awareness among people and show them what they are losing when improper lighting is used in the city and around places that are away from the city which are potential places for star gazers.

    check out the International Dark-Sky Association facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/International-Dark-Sky-Association, or visit their website at http://www.darksky.org.

    The International Dark-Sky Association has been working to protect and preserve the night sky for future generations.

    "Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
    How I wonder what you are.
    Up above the world so high,
    Like a diamond in the sky."

    Let our future generation recite this poem and know what it actually means.

    I've put together this timelapse compilation from the images that i've taken since i got into astrophotography, to show people what the dark sky beholds for us and what we would lose if we did not protect it. If we continue to pollute the night sky with light there would no longer be "Twinkle Twinkle little star".

    All Photos shot by Nikon D5100 using 18-55 AF-VR Lens.

    Light right, Celebrate the stars and share the message.

    Also don't forget to checkout some beautiful night sky images from New Zealand at The Art of Night - The Photography of Mark Gee https://www.facebook.com/markgphoto and stay tuned for information on light pollution and how it effects us.

  5. The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) in Perth launched in September 2009. Research focuses include High Performance Computing, Engineering, Astronomy and Radio Interference (Electromagnetic Compatibility) contributing towards the global Square Kilometre Array project.

    This video was shown at our launch to set the scene for what ICRAR will be, where we fit in and why our research is important.

    Some content was created by others, and is credited at the end of the film. The script and direction was handled by ICRAR (Outreach and Education and our Executive).
