The Clock of the Long Now

The Clock of the Long Now is a portrait of Danny Hillis and his brilliant team of inventors, futurists, and engineers as they build The 10,000 Year Clock—a grand, Stone Henge-like monolith, being constructed in a mountain in West Texas.

The film, like the clock itself, celebrates the power of long-term thinking and mankind’s insatiable thirst to solve life’s biggest problems.

Kelly McGonigal: How to make stress your friend

Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat.

But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case.

Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

Billions in Change Official Film

Published on Oct 4, 2015
The world is facing some huge problems. There’s a lot of talk about how to solve them. But talk doesn’t reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick. That takes doing. This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project.

Miniature Origami Robot Self-folds, Walks, Swims, and Degrades

Uh-oh! The self-folding miniature origami robots are here!

Life will never be the same.

How long will it be before we see a swarm of these attacking the good guy in a movie?

OK so why would I want to let these things into my house?
> To clean up all the dust bunnies and old rice kernels in the pantry closet?
> To scare the crap out of the mice and cockroaches living the walls and ceiling?

Me thinks this is just the beginning of a tsunami of technical change headed our way.

Look out folks, here comes the future.
Embrace it or get out of the way.

Do you have the courage to question what others may consider to be common sense?

Do you have the courage to dramatically change what you do and what you eat?

Carl Sagan’s last interview with Charlie Rose

At the end of his life, Carl Sagan cared deeply about where science stood in the public imagination.

During his final interview, aired on May 27, 1996, Carl Sagan issued a strong warning, telling Charlie Rose:

We’ve arranged a society on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power sooner or later is going to blow up in our faces. I mean, who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it.

21 Swings: An Exercise in Musical Cooperation

Every spring, an interactive installation takes over a high-traffic area in Montréal’s Quartier des spectacles and sets a collective ritual. The installation offers a fresh look at the idea of cooperation, the notion that we can achieve more together than separately.

The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation.

The project stimulates ownership of the public space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city centre.

In order to allow for these collective moments to be shared around the world, a traveling version of the project with 10 Musical Swings is now available on tour. Contact us at hello@dailytlj.com for more information.
