This video is an entry for the Breakthrough Junior Challenge 2015 which gives a unique visualization of Special Relativity using hyperbolic geometry. This idea was inspired by the famous woodcut by M.C. Escher Circle Limit III. http://www.mcescher.com/gallery/recognition-success/circle-limit-iii/ I liked the idea of making a video on Special Relativity because I had already explored the use of M.C. Escher’s woodcut Circle Limit III as a teaching tool for explaining the hyperbolic geometry of Minkowski spacetime. The main intuition is that the principle of Relativity asserts that the manifold of frames of reference is homogeneous and isotropic, and there are exactly three geometries associated with this: Sphere (which exists as rotations through space), Plane (which represents Galilean Relativity) and the Hyperbolic Plane (which exists as rotations through spacetime). I wanted to find a way to use this intuition without overwhelming the audience with technical terms. When the timelike unit vectors in 2+1 spacetime (which correspond to velocity four-vectors) are projected onto a disk (see Wikipedia: “Hyperboloid model”), the result is the Poincare Disk Model, which is (almost) the geometry portrayed in Circle Limit III. I had never seen anyone to use this as a visualization of Special Relativity, and so I decided to make the video.

Hazed and sun-faded headlights are not only unsafe, but they look atrocious. They can make any car that is in good condition, look neglected and abused. The reason why headlights with polycarbonate (a.k.a. plastic) lenses begin to look cloudy and faded is because the UV resistant coating on the lens has seen some wear and tear due to the constant abuse from road grime, bugs, rocks, dirt, snow, salt, etc. When the UV resistant coating begins to pit, it will expose the bare polycarbonate lens. When that is done, the constant UV rays from the sun will oxidize the composition of the plastic and create the faded, cloudy lens. To repair this problem, sanding the entire headlight is a must so that the failing UV coating that was applied when the headlight was made, is completely removed. You will then need to remove the scratches and the haze from the lens by polishing and restoring it to new condition. At that point, the headlight will look crystal clear and will be able to allow light through the lens instead of being distorted from the haze. If it is left like that, it will begin to haze again in a matter of no time, especially if you live in an environment where your car will see alot of sun. The best way to prevent the oxidation is from a Paint Protection Film. Since it is a UV resistant film, the sun’s UV rays won’t be able to deteriorate the lens. Not only does the PPF absorb small impacts like rock chips and debris (so the UV coating will not be compromised), but it will be able to be replaced quite easily. I also find that removing the headlights / masking the entire car, is a pain in the butt so that we can paint a layer of clear coat over the lens, which will eventually fade due to the same pitting problem we have with the headlight being at the front of the car. The exact 3M film I showed in this video can be purchased here (https://goo.gl/FTzN5P). It is also available in many different sizes. You can purchase the roll to do a custom piece like your headlight, and you can also purchase pre-cut kits for your car by following this link here (https://goo.gl/psw29p).

In this video we take a look at 2 excellent compact LED off-road lights. The Baja Designs S2 Pro and the Rigid Industries SR-Q, both are a 20 watt LED light with a flood style beam pattern and are perfect for using in small spaces. Baja Designs S2 Pro: http://amzn.to/2mczROg Rigid Industries SR-Q: http://amzn.to/2xZHtZE Everything I'm using on my Jeep can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/shop/trailrecon Visit us: Web: http://www.trailrecon.net Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/trailrecon/ Both of these lights are from American based companies and offer a limited life time warranty, although Baja Designs offers a 30 day money back guarantee. Now I will leave links in the description for both of these lights if at the end of the video you want more information or want to go pick yourself up some. Now let’s take a close up look and talk about some of the specs; Dimensions: • Baja Designs: 2.93" x 1.76" x 1.68" • Rigid Industries: 4.93” x 2.25” x 1.81” o Rigid does make a smaller light which is just slightly larger than the Baja, their SR-M model, but it’s only a 2 LED, 10 watt light Lens: Both are solid, well-built lenses • Baja Designs: Baja Designs can replace the lens and optics for a different light patter, they call Uservice • Rigid Industries: Want another light patter, buy another light…. Housing: • Baja Designs: Aluminum, Powder Coated • Rigid Industries: Aluminum, Powder Coated Wire Connections: • Baja Designs: • Rigid Industries: Wire harness: • Baja Designs: • Rigid Industries: Plug and Play Price (individual light): • Baja Designs: $157, pair: $305 • Rigid Industries: $104 pair: $190 LEDs: • Baja Designs: 2, 10w • Rigid Industries: 4, 5w So they both are 20 watts Amps: • Baja Designs: 1.66 • Rigid Industries: 1.45 Lumens: • Baja Designs: 2,450 • Rigid Industries: 1,568 Light Pattern: Flood (Baja Designs list theirs as a work/scene light) • Baja Designs: 60 degree • Rigid Industries: 20 degree Light Temp: • Baja Designs: 5,000k which they claim reduces eye fatigue • Rigid Industries: Unable to find information on their website Show garage door pattern Measure Lux at 25 feet Show lights from front of Jeep Show overhead using drone So in my opinion, both light performed very well outside. But now the million dollar question, what light am I going to get and install on my back of my roof rack. Well, I will say they are both excellent lights and extremely well built and I honestly don’t think either one is a bad choice, but for me personally, I’m going with the Rigid Industries. I’ve been using their lights for a while now and had no problems at all and I’m sure the Baja Designs have just as good durability, but I just don’t think I can justify the extra $115 for a pair just a slight increase in light output. But I’d like to hear from you. Are you currently using either of these lights and how do you like them or if you are getting ready to buy, which one of these did you decide on?

The 48W led flood light is very common in the market, it is doing a great job light up the area in front but with its 1.4kg weight it is very heavy to mount on a motorcycle. The 20W driving light is much smaller & lighter (0.35kg), it is doing a similar job as the 48W flood for light up area nearby and also provide better visibility further ahead.
