New Apple Video Shows 'SEE' Behind the Scenes

· Andrew Orr · Cool Stuff Found

Apple has shared a three-and-a-half minute video on YouTube showing its show SEE behind the scenes.

Jason Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see—who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who believes it’s witchcraft and wants them destroyed. Alfre Woodard also stars as Paris, Baba Voss’ spiritual leader.

I’m currently working my way through other TV+ content so I haven’t seen SEE yet. But it looks great and sounds like it’s a good, compelling story.

How Lego Bricks are Made

Core77 discovered a YouTube video that shows how Lego bricks are made. It’s a fascinating behind-the-scenes look into the Lego production line. The design has remained consistent for over fifty years. This means backwards compatibility; you can connect a 2018 Lego brick with a 1990 brick just fine. Core77 took screenshots of the video and added their own humorous captions.

We’ve used our industrial expertise to caption some of the images, just so you laypeople can understand what you’re seeing: Technicians who attempt to eat the plastic paste are fired, under a stringent “three strikes” system. “These all look plenty sharp. It would be a pity if a parent stepped on one, but ultimately their fault for being barefoot.”

What exactly is involved with making iPhone and Apple Watch pre-orders happen, and then getting those deliveries out to customers? Buzzfeed got to go behind the scenes to see what it takes for Apple and UPS to get and process orders, and then get the packages into people’s hands. It’s an interesting video and worth checking out.
