Mesmerizing Machine

Mesmerizing Machine

As you study the blue ball machine, it is easy to see how you can be mesmerized by a process that doesn’t actually do anything. See if you can find the part where the ball replaces the worker’s head. Then find the little sign that every now and then flashes NO. It never says yes

— another indication of a process gone wild.

If that knocked your socks off, just wait until you see our next cool topic: Sense and Sensibilities of Science. And if you want to peruse all of the previous sock-knocking blog entries, visit the Knocked My Socks Off archive. (links to another blog site)
