To the Scientists of the Future: Materials science with EUPHRATES

Created by EUPHRATES and Masahiko Sato for Japan’s National Institute for Material Science (NIMS), these three “To the Scientists of the Future” short films are a mesmerizing combination of materials research innovation and absolute wonder. To the scientists of the future and to everyone who loves when physics looks like magic, this video series is for you.

Above, #01 Superconductor. Below, #02 Shape Memory Material and #03 Electromagnetic Induction.

We know EUPHRATES and Sato from their work on Japan’s NHK educational TV show, Pitagora Suitchi (Pythagora Switch), one of our absolute favorites. Just imagine the Rube Goldberg machines you could put together with these rare and curious materials!

EUPHRATES will be collaborating with The Tinkering Studio at San Francisco’s Exploratorium during the summer of 2015. Check out the studio’s blog here.
