Japanese art student at Musashino Art University, Yasutoki Kariya, created the installation Asobi, a wonderful lightbulb version of Newton’s Cradle, the physics toy also known as the “Executive Ball Clicker.” Eleven computer programmed lights are used in this visualization of kinetic energy and it has been coined ‘Edison’s Cradle’. Notice that the glass bulbs do not actually touch, preventing them from breaking. Asobi is currently a nominee for the Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Award 2012.
Sap produced by the manchineel tree, which is common in tropical coasts, causes skin blisters and if it contacts an open wound, can cause death. If the tree is burnt, released toxins can cause extreme eye irritation and blindness. Ingesting its fruit will lead to swelling & closure of throat and death.
