Friday Links!

From Steven Davis, and this is awesome: Playing Against Type: The Typewriter Orchestra. This is fascinating: Making Waves - A framemaker re-engineers a 17th century artform. This seems dead-on: If High School and College Textbooks Were Honest - Honest Ads. This is incredible:  Comparison of Lunar Module Navigation computer with an iPhone 5.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is tantalizing:  Saturn's Moon Enceladus Has the Basic Ingredients For Life.

From Wally, and this is fantastic:  This May Be the Most Accurate Han Solo Blaster Replica Ever Created. Finally: Mystery of why shoelaces come undone unravelled by science. I never want to be on one of these (ever): The monster ships that changed how we travel.

From Mike Gilbert, and I've tried several of these: Photo of all the Dr. Pepper knockoffs.

From C. Lee, and this is fascinating: In this ant species, 21% of the colony has major injuries from war. Next, and these are cute but so remarkably strange: The World’s Only Scaled Mammal Is ADORABLE. This is excellent: Godzilla speaks! Interview with 12-movie veteran kaiju actor Haruo Nakajima. This is quite bizarre: When Marie Antoinette Pretended To Be A Milkmaid. This is fascinating: Small-brained birds get killed by cars. I'd buy at least half of these: Crazy cool product ideas designed by Japanese Twitter that we wish were real.

From Craig Miller, and how very 1984 of them: How Uber Uses Psychological Tricks to Push Its Drivers’ Buttons.
