    While watching this video I was thinking:I would like some more visual content on what you're on about there, rather than just larget text on the screen. Example: Seeing one of those bridges expanding.
    You are still great, despite my criticism. Thank you.

    great video… but if you can also include animated clip of how the product works during your explanation of each product then that would help in better understanding of the concept.

    I love how useful origami can be for engineering 🙂
    There's also a bunch of patterns originating in origami that structural engineers use for buildings and stuff aside from the truss bridge thing.

    5:10 "Miura-ori fold" is redundant. "Miura-ori" means "Miura fold", which is attributed to Prof. Miura Kōryō.

    YAY I love Origami! But the planes are too easy. I make very complex animals

    Have you seen the recent discovery
    about how ladybug wings fold up
    in a spiral fashion,
    to fit them under smaller wing covers?
    And the fold ridges
    stiffen the wing against flying forces,
    when they are unspiraled
    into a nearly flat form.

    This would be a cool video if we can see what he's explaining not just all talk.

    Wow, how much better would this have been with actual footage of the bridge, colored light fold, etc.

    I had to look up what a cootie catcher was. Turns out it's just a paper fortune teller.

    Some feedback, after watching a few videos from this channel: SciShow suffers from too much talking and text and too little visual demonstration and documentation. I understand why (publishing rights etc.) but for me that means it's not interesting enough.

    Another interesting fact, which will cause a stir: as the name suggests, centrifuges work by centrifugal force, not centripetal force. In a non-rotating inertial frame there is indeed no such thing as centrifugal force, it is an apparent force not a real one. But in a rotating inertial frame, such as that in which centrifuge samples are spun at high speed, centrifugal force is very real indeed, and is what forces the heavier sample fractions to the outside of the circle and the bottom of the tubes. Centripetal force acts in the opposite direction and couldn't possibly do this. Besides, in a rotating inertial frame, centripetal is an apparent force, and not a real one.

    I'm probably the only one but the first entry already blew my mind, haha 😀 A foldable sturdy bridge for emergency, genius, why didn't we think about that earlier?! But this whole video gives me faith for humanity, maybe we'll make it after all C:

    All the junk that nobody knows what to do with it is proposed as alternative technologies for developing countries, especially in remote areas.

    I can see it now.
    Friend 1: What class do you have next?
    Friend 2: Origami 2301.
    Friend 1: How did you get bumped up?
    Friend 2: I keep telling you it's good to have hobbies.

    Thank you for saying a centrifuge uses centripetal force. I always cringe when I hear centrifugal force being talked about.

    I know the editor was super pissed having to key the background around that ball of paper.
