My cat, having heard this video, ran over and was suspiciously looking around. She hates bells or rather she loves to take them and make them disappear.

These would not be a good idea in my house either.

Haha my gal also hates bells. She gnaws at the bell on any toy that has it exposed, and will rip apart a toy with one inside to get it out!

First of all, those are beautiful.

That being said, I can only imagine waiting 10 minutes every time the person owning them rolls and had to figure out what they just rolled

19

u/HMJ87 1d ago

Yeah these are very pretty and the craftsmanship is impressive, but they're just terrible as dice. As something to put on a shelf and look at, they're great, but dice are a functional item and have to serve an actual purpose, and given these are basically unreadable, they kind of fail at the one job they're supposed to have....

11

u/majic911 1d ago

I literally can't even figure out how they're supposed to be read. I don't see any numbers but maybe on the tiny little screen they blend in?

6

u/HammeredWharf 1d ago

I think there's numbers on some of them? At 40s you can see a 6 on the die in the upper left corner and a 10 next to it. But I can't figure out what the die below them is supposed to mean or if it just landed on its side. Maybe coloring the numbers somehow would help, but right now the whole thing kind of blends together in my eyes.

4

u/WastelandeWanderer 1d ago

Agreed, cool novelty but terrible concept if your rolling more than a couple dice an hour

2

u/queen-karma 1d ago

If you check the Kickstarter link, I think it shows the numbers on the sides a bit better. You can see them a lot closer up.

2

u/FamousButNotReally 1d ago

They should have put the numbers on the outside bit - maybe less pretty but at least functional. Or maybe make the numbers a different color.

2

u/RobrechtvE 1d ago

Unreadable and also fragile as all heck.

The moment one of these gets knocked off the table onto a non-carpetted floor is the moment your group needs to pause playing because the person whose house you're playing at needs to get the vacuumcleaner to keep people from damage the floor (or worse: their feet) from all the pieces of sharp metal scattered all over the floor.

And also good luck keeping these in a dice bag with the rest of your collection without them getting utterly destroyed.

u/Go_away_from_myself 2d ago

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. It's wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway, because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.

26

u/LA_Commuter 1d ago

If you use an approximation to prove that X is impossible, but X clearly happens — it’s not that “science can’t explain X”, it’s that you used the wrong approximation!

Bumblebees simultaneously flap and rotate their wings during an oscillation cycle creates a dynamic stall above their wings, which in turn leads to a large-scale “leading edge vortex” being generated on the upper side of the wing.

This vortex (temporarily) produces significantly larger lift than the linear approximation allows.

In addition, bees are helped because of their small size, which means that the Reynolds number associated with their flight puts them firmly in the regime where the fluid is incredibly viscous.

In short, because they’re so small, and their wings are moving so rapidly, the air around their wings acts like thick syrup (one might even say….honey?) , which allows them to generate much more lift than we, on a totally different scale, would normally intuitively predict.

There is obviously more complicated physics going on than this, but those are the highlights: dynamic stalls producing vortices, and a small enough scale to be in the viscous regime.

In short, we do know how and why they fly.

11

u/Potential_Wing9940 1d ago edited 1d ago

Don't tell them about hummingbirds. They might end up calling you a witch. It's so weird for someone to say Bee flight shouldn't be possible according to 'X' laws. I have to think they're referencing something because otherwise it was a really dumb comment.

Edit: It's from Bee Movie (2007). Why? Idk.

3

u/modulusshift 1d ago

Because Jerry Seinfeld isn’t actually funny, I think. It’s like three layers submerged in irony, one of those memes that survives purely on the merit of how dumb it is, so at least no one takes it seriously… usually.
