    What I really like about this project is that it taught me to think about the world differently with respect to physical objects. I now sometimes think about the outline of physical objects as if it's a line. The specific area of math that you use for things like this is called Parametric Equations. I had a lot of great conversations about this stuff with Hansi and Jerobeam. I was very impressed by their intelligence, and also very thankful that they took their time to share these special things with me. I know they'd really appreciate it if you'd reach out to their website and purchase OsciStudio as well as some of Jerobeam's music. Even if you don't have an oscilloscope, purchasing the software will obviously help them continue to do what they love doing. Hansi showed me a very interesting thing he's working on involving ray tracing. It was fascinating.

  • Why Do Starlings Flock in Murmurations?

    Few things in today's world cause us to pause our technology driven lives, and just look up. But if you noticed a dark cloud darting across the sky, assuming a variety of different shapes and movements, that might just do it.

    No, you're not tripping on psychedelics, and we haven't fooled you with computer graphics. These are real, and the science behind them will blow your mind.

    Note: The US Navy put no restrictions on me about what I should say or how I should present what I learned on this trip. Other than making sure my footage was cleared for Operational Security, I am free to say whatever I want about this experience.

    Another note: The Navy did not ask me to provide a link to their website (or do anything for that matter), but I’m going to provide a link because I want smart people to become submariners. The US Navy continues to provide stability and security in ways no other organization on earth does. If you are interested to find out how you can join the Navy you can visit the website here:

    Follow the Thunderbirds on Instagram:
    Follow Flack on Instagram:
    Follow Mace on Instagram:

    A personal thank you to Air Force MSgt Ryan Crane for nominating me for this flight. Thank you sir.

    The Thunderbirds have a YouTube Channel


    This flight took place on May 3, 2019 in Biloxi Mississippi. The reason it took so long to release is the high amount of research I wanted to do before releasing the video. I even visited the Air Force Research Lab at Wright Patterson AFB to discuss some aspects of this video with Aerodynamicists. Synchronizing all this footage and coordinating additional B Roll with the Thunderbirds Public Affairs Officer also required a lot of effort.

    These are my own thoughts, not those of the U.S. Air Force or the Thunderbirds:
    I've been around a lot of pilots and ground crew in my life and I must say that the professionalism displayed by the Thunderbirds was astounding. Their goal is to inspire and demonstrate the capabilities of the US Air Force, so I'll take it a step further. If you're a smart young person who is interesting in changing your life for the better, strongly consider the Air Force. The job market isn't the best at the moment but the Air Force still has opportunities available for you to learn incredible skills even if you're not interested in flying. They manage everything from logistics, electronics, aerospace, cyber and even space systems. The threats to freedom are becoming more complex, and in my experience working for the Department of Defense over a 15 year span (even longer if you count my work as a contractor) The US Air Force consists of some of the most intelligent service members our country has. These people are book-smart, but also have the confidence to solve real world problems with their own hands. If I have a complex aerodynamic question, my first call is usually to someone in the Air Force, because they understand these complex phenomena intuitively. For example, in this video you would hear Flack and I talking about pitot tubes in flight. We also had other discussions about fuel burn rates, Prandtl Glauert, weather.... all kinds of things. Simply put, if you're looking for direction in your life, and you're good with science and math... consider the Air Force. That being said, they also need other types of skills as well. Logisticians, writers, creative people who know how to solve complex problems in unique ways.

Of course I could add additional things such as predators, ecosystem support and evolution into this but I just wanted to focus in on the use of boids algorithm to see how each factor ( separation, alignment and cohesion) affect the swarms properties.

  • How Do Bird Displays Work? - Bird Courtship Display Science

    10:07

    Let's look at the most bizarre and interesting bird displays in the world and try to figure out WHY they exist. Let's dive into the science of bird courtship displays! Please subscribe to continue learning what makes life AWESOME:

    This video covers a LOT of displays, because birds are so different around the world. Not only that, but we provide a real reason why the behavior might be a good signal for courtship.

    We talk about structure building, like in weavers and bowerbirds.

    We look at ornaments on different birds, like peacocks, pheasants, birds-of-paradise, and an enhanced group of Least Auklets.

    Then group courtship displays, like in sage grouse and manakins. There are many competing theories to why this behaviors exists, so there's an animated segment comparing each of the different theories.

    Then dancing behaviors like in the victoria riflebird and blue-footed booby, including a brief compilation of some very strange dances.

    Then birdsong, like in... most birds. But specifically the sedge wren and lyrebird, who display song-copying prowess to impress a potential partner.

    Then gifts, like in the greater roadrunner and kingfisher.

    And the final courtship behavior is mutual displays. Cranes do some amazing displays, as do grebes, and albatross.

    Finally, I talk about the different types of science questions and why this video is particularly likely to have information which turns out to be wrong. Or information which is correct today but may be incorrect tomorrow.

    I hope you learn a lot of new theories and see some new amazing sights!

  • STURNUS - flock of common starlings in flight

    1:00

    flock of starlings in flight and assembling in a city tree

    The common starling or European starling (Sturnus vulgaris), also known simply as the starling in the British Isles, is a medium-sized passerine bird in the starling family, Sturnidae. It is about 20 cm (8 in) long and has glossy black plumage with a metallic sheen, which is speckled with white at some times of year. The legs are pink and the bill is black in winter and yellow in summer; young birds have browner plumage than the adults. It is a noisy bird, especially in communal roosts and other gregarious situations, with an unmusical but varied song. Its gift for mimicry has been noted in literature including the Mabinogion and the works of Pliny the Elder and William Shakespeare.

    The common starling has about 12 subspecies breeding in open habitats across its native range in temperate Europe and across the Palearctic to western Mongolia, and it has been introduced to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Argentina, South Africa and Fiji. This bird is resident in western and southern Europe and southwestern Asia, while northeastern populations migrate south and west in the winter within the breeding range and also further south to Iberia and North Africa. The common starling builds an untidy nest in a natural or artificial cavity in which four or five glossy, pale blue eggs are laid. These take two weeks to hatch and the young remain in the nest for another three weeks. There are normally one or two breeding attempts each year. This species is omnivorous, taking a wide range of invertebrates, as well as seeds and fruit. It is hunted by various mammals and birds of prey, and is host to a range of external and internal parasites.

    Large flocks typical of this species can be beneficial to agriculture by controlling invertebrate pests; however, starlings can also be pests themselves when they feed on fruit and sprouting crops. Common starlings may also be a nuisance through the noise and mess caused by their large urban roosts. Introduced populations in particular have been subjected to a range of controls, including culling, but these have had limited success, except in preventing the colonisation of Western Australia.

    The species has declined in numbers in parts of northern and western Europe since the 1980s due to fewer grassland invertebrates being available as food for growing chicks. Despite this, its huge global population is not thought to be declining significantly, so the common starling is classified as being of Least Concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

    About murmurations:

    The common starling is a highly gregarious species, especially in autumn and winter. Although flock size is highly variable, huge, noisy flocks - murmurations - may form near roosts. These dense concentrations of birds are thought to be a defence against attacks by birds of prey such as peregrine falcons or Eurasian sparrowhawks. Flocks form a tight sphere-like formation in flight, frequently expanding and contracting and changing shape, seemingly without any sort of leader. Each common starling changes its course and speed as a result of the movement of its closest neighbours.

    Very large roosts, up to 1.5 million birds, form in city centres, woodlands and reedbeds, causing problems with their droppings. These may accumulate up to 30 cm (12 in) deep, killing trees by their concentration of chemicals. In smaller amounts, the droppings act as a fertiliser, and therefore woodland managers may try to move roosts from one area of a wood to another to benefit from the soil enhancement and avoid large toxic deposits.

    Flocks of more than a million common starlings may be observed just before sunset in spring in southwestern Jutland, Denmark over the seaward marshlands of Tønder and Esbjerg municipalities between Tønder and Ribe. They gather in March until northern Scandinavian birds leave for their breeding ranges by mid-April. Their swarm behaviour creates complex shapes silhouetted against the sky, a phenomenon known locally as sort sol (black sun). Flocks of anything from five to fifty thousand common starlings form in areas of the UK just before sundown during mid-winter. These flocks are commonly called murmurations.

  • Boids | Simulation of the Movement of Fish and Birds

    3:01

    ASCII C++ demo of boids.
    Boids is an artificial life program, developed by Craig Reynolds in 1986, which simulates the flocking behavior of birds. His paper on this topic was published in 1987 in the proceedings of the ACM SIGGRAPH conference. The name boid corresponds to a shortened version of bird-oid object, which refers to a bird-like object.

    Rules applied in simple Boids:

    -separation
    -alignment
    -cohesion

    As with most artificial life simulations, Boids is an example of emergent behavior; that is, the complexity of Boids arises from the interaction of individual agents (the boids, in this case) adhering to a set of simple rules. The rules applied in the simplest Boids world are as follows:

    separation: steer to avoid crowding local flockmates
    alignment: steer towards the average heading of local flockmates
    cohesion: steer to move towards the average position (center of mass) of local flockmates

    These videos are from the Introduction to Agent Based Modeling course on Complexity Explorer (complexityexplorer.org) taught by Prof. Bill Rand. This course will explore how to use agent-based modeling to understand and examine a widely diverse and disparate set of complex problems.

    During the course, we will explore why agent-based modeling is a powerful new way to understand complex systems, what kinds of systems are amenable to complex systems analysis, and how agent-based modeling has been used in the past to study everything from economics to biology to political science to business and management.

    We will also teach you how to build a model from the ground up and how to analyze and understand the results of a model using the NetLogo programming language, which is developed and supported at Northwestern University by Uri Wilensky. We will also discuss how to build models that are sound and rigorous. No programming background or knowledge is required, and the methods examined will be useable in any number of different fields.

  • Simulating Emergence, Ft. Boids | science.sort | EP02

    9:37

    In this video, we are recreating Craig Reynolds' boid algorithm to simulate bird murmuration or swarm intelligence in general. Video briefly covers related topics like the basics of vector algebra, steering behaviour, evolutionary aspects of murmuration. Simulations are made using Python.

    Why can we add force and velocity here! -- In our computer simulation, the mass of each boid is taken to be 1 unit. So the acceleration is equal to the force. The time step, dt is assumed to be equal to one for the simplicity of the explanation. Internally, what the program computes is the good old formula, v = u + a * dt.

    We will then use our alembic bird with a POPs flock particles simulation to make our birds fly. We will also be offsetting the time to get a flock of birds flapping their wings at random frames per particle. Part 2 of this 3 part tutorial is about further detail our mattes, add VDB clouds to our sky and continuing to developing the shot.

    This is going to be another fun advanced project based tutorial going over a lot of different subjects that I am sure many of you will enjoy! Like always I will be providing scene files/assets which I am able to share.

  • Pygame-Boids-implementation

    9:34

    This is a simple boids implementation with pygame.
    Boids is a simple flocking algorithm first developed in 1986 by Craig Reynolds. The algorithm utilizes 3 main constraints cohesion, separation and alignment in order to dictate how the each boid behaves. If you would like to read more about the algorithm here is a link to its Wikipedia page:



    The following implementation was done using Pygame. Pygame has no native UI support thus I decided to do my own UI implementation.

    If you want to check out the implementation for your self check out my github repository
