This Is the Tech That Will Make Learning as Addictive as Video Games

Learning needs to be less like memorization, and more like…Angry Birds. Half of school dropouts name boredom as the number one reason they left. How do we get our kids to want to learn? The post is about why the future of education will be about flipping our current model on its head and about how key exponential technologies like AI, VR and gamification are going to drive a revolution in education. For fun, here's a video summary of this post. From A's to Angry Birds In the traditional education system, you start at an "A," and every time you get something wrong, your score gets lower and lower.

In the gaming world, it's just the opposite. You start with zero, and every time you come up with something right, your score gets higher and higher. It completely flips the way we currently learn, and it's addictively fun. How addicting? Over 155 million Americans play video games, and spend upwards of 3 billion hours per week engrossed in a game. Peter Diamandis Dr. Garip AY: Ebru Art Video.

This is what a world map looks like if you're colourblind

A reddit user, Renno Hokwerda, posted a brief series of maps to Imgur to highlight the difficulties faced by some in interpreting colour coded maps. Hokwerda told indy100 that he used Coblis, an online tool which attempts to replicate how some colour-blind people will see certain images: I am not an expert on colour-blindness at all, nor am I myself colour-blind.

I posted last Sunday a map on Reddit r/mapporn showing the world's general election days, to which I added a textual key for colour-blind people who perhaps wouldn't be able to read the map. Watch the Destruction of Pompeii by Mount Vesuvius, Re-Created with Computer Animation (79 AD) A good disaster story never fails to fascinate — and, given that it actually happened, the story of Pompeii especially so.

Watch the Destruction of Pompeii by Mount Vesuvius, Re-Created with Computer Animation (79 AD)

Buried and thus frozen in time by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, the ancient Roman town of 11,000 has provided an object of great historical interest ever since its rediscovery in 1599. Baths, houses, tools and other possessions (including plenty of wine bottles), frescoes, graffiti, an ampitheater, an aqueduct, the “Villa of the Mysteries“: Pompeii has it all, as far as the stuff of first-century Roman life goes. The ash-preserved ruins of Pompeii, more than any other source, have provided historians with a window into just what life in that time and place was like.

Like Brain Teasers? This DIY Puzzle “Nails” It

Basically, all you need is a chunk of pine, a nail, and some boiling water (oh, and a saw and a drill). It’s called the “Tooth and Nail” puzzle, and it appears to be an optical illusion. It is not. SPOILER ALERT: How this works is fascinating. After three sections are cut from the wood, one of the remaining “teeth” on the end of the puzzle is saturated in boiling water.
