This was incredibly interesting. I don’t understand every part of it, but it’s still really neat anyway. The video shows German-born producer Patrick Pulsinger explaining how modular synthesizers work.

According to the video, this house is so efficient in its use of exterior lighting and energy consumption that it’s almost always producing about 150% more energy than it [...]

The video below gives a great demonstration of the bag’s expandable capabilities. [...]
