Micro Trailers are six-second looping videos designed to quickly inform viewers about titles on Steam with a presentation that's easy to skim. This experiment is a fancier version of the Twitter bot of the same name. Every year, we create dozens of experiments around discoverability, video, machine learning, and more. You know who we thought might enjoy seeing them? For the first time, you can try, share, and break them, then share your feedback with the developers who create them. These are works in progress.
Some of them may turn out great.
Others, we may toss out. We hope that most will be improved with your feedback and go on to be a part of Steam. This is the way of Steam Labs. We're always trying new things with Steam, but often only share them with the world when they're ready to be made a part of the platform. Steam Labs allows us to share these ideas earlier and improve them with your feedback before making them official. Like all new Steam features, Steam Labs is itself an experiment, in that it is a work in progress which will only get better with informed iteration.
We hope you'll share your ideas and feedback in the discussions. We look forward to experimenting together. Read the gripping, action potential filled story here. Using the 2-Channel SpikerBox and harmlessly stretching a worm, you can learn the effect of diameter on various cable properties of neurons. In this muscle fatigue lab, you will learn about how to quantify and model how quickly your muscles lose strength!
Grab your 2-Channel Neuron SpikerBox to learn about cable theory and the different speeds of two nerve systems in the worm. There's no such thing as a perfect ground, but some grounds are better than others, depending on what you are studying. What if we fed the neural activity of one cockroach leg into another? Neural Engineering in session. How does the SpikerBox actually amplify spikes?

Each September, the Ig Nobel Prizes a play on the word ignoble are given out to scientists who have wowed the world with their eccentric, imaginative achievements. Roger Mieusset and Bourras Bengoudifa were awarded the anatomy prize for testing the scrotum temperatures in clothed and naked men in various positions. They found that in some postal workers, bus drivers, and other clothed civilians, the left scrotum is warmer than the right, while in some naked civilians, the opposite is true. They suggest that this discrepancy may contribute to asymmetry in the shape and size of male external genitalia.
Shigeru Watanabe and his team nabbed the chemistry prize for tracking the eating and sleeping habits of 15 boys and 15 girls to discover that, regardless of gender, they each produce about milliliters of spit per day. Children have lower salivary flow rates than adults, and they also sleep longer we produce virtually no saliva when we sleep , so it seems like they may generate much less saliva than adults. Ghada A. Papoiu, and their colleagues used cowhage a plant known to make people itchy to induce itches on the forearms, ankles, and backs of 18 participants, whom they then asked to rate both the intensity of the itch and the pleasure derived from scratching it.
Subjects felt ankle and back itches more intensely than those on their forearms, and they also rated ankle and back scratches higher on the pleasure scale. Patricia Yang, David Hu, and their team inflated the intestines of two dead wombats with long balloons to discover that this formation is caused by the elastic quality of the intestinal wall, which stretches at certain angles to form cubes. For solving the mystery, Yang and Hu took home the physics award for the second time—they also won in for testing the theory that all mammals can empty their bladders in about 21 seconds.
Habip Gedik and father-and-son pair Timothy and Andreas Voss earned the economics prize by growing drug-resistant bacteria on the euro, U. The Romanian leu was the only one to yield all three types of bacteria tested— Staphylococcus aureus , Escherichia coli , and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococci. The Croatian luna produced none, and the other banknotes each produced one. The results suggest that the Romanian leu was most susceptible to bacteria growth because it was the only banknote in the experiment made from polymers rather than textile-based fibers.
