It's not every day that you can justify watching a music video in a college engineering class. However, it's also not every day that you find as stunning an example of creative design as the new OK Go video for their song "This Too Shall Pass," done in collaboration with the artistic engineers at SyynLabs. I love that they used the constraint "no magic" to use seemingly simple methods to create a stunning feat of machine design.
There are also some good "making of" videos available:
