I still remember spending my whole afternoons watching Cartoon Network when I was still a kid. The list below has 10 popular short film animations (in no particular order) you must see on Youtube. Let’s start our list with a feel-good love story. I can‘t tell if this one’s inspirational or if it’s actually sad – but one thing’s for sure, it hits that soft spot in your heart.

This Student Designs Jewelry That Turns Your Veins Into A Power Source (Video) We’ve all been there: running out of power on your cell-phone with no prospect of a charger in the near future. It’s one of the most frightening possible scenarios for a lot of people these days. Naomi Kizhner, an Israeli graduate student, may have solved that problem. Some of her devices are a little bit creepy- they are embedded into the wearer’s veins, and then use the wearer’s movements and blood flow to turn a small wheel inside the device, generating electricity. One of Naomi’s devices (Courtesy of Naomi Kizhner) Most people are probably pretty uncomfortable with the idea of embedding energy-producing jewelry into their body. “I wanted to provoke the thought about how far will we go to in order to ‘feed’ our addiction in the world of declining resources,” she said in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The jewelry is part of a project that Kizhner is calling “Energy Addicts”. The three devices (Courtesy of Naomi Kizhner) Check out a video Naomi made for her “Energy Addicts” project below:

A Visual Representation Of The Relationship Between Science And Music | SF Globe Nigel John Stanford is a musician from New Zealand who is well-known for his work in the genres of Ambient and New Age music. In the video below, you can see a range of his musical abilities as he plays both a drum set and a piano while also rigging makeshift instruments from things like playing cards. This video is entitled 'Cymatics,' and cymatics is the science of creating visualizations of audio frequencies. On his website, Stanford explains how he became interested in visualizing sound: "In 1999 I watched a documentary on 'Synesthesia' - a disorder that effects the audio and visual functions of the brain. People with the disorder hear a sound when they see bright colors, or see a color when they hear various sounds. This got me thinking that it would be cool to make a music video where every time a sound plays, you see a corresponding visual element.
