Honestly seeing these HD videos from a different freaking planet is insane to me. Makes me wonder if anyone will get there within my lifetime

Data centers


Data centers are built to be modern, very well insulated, and huge. Very geometric. A lot of soft-but-bright lights lining the edges, with a lot of glass, metal, and wires as well as almost nothing but rows and rows of identical computers. There are rarely any flourishes besides logos, so it looks very industrial or business-like. They're ripped straight out of a sci-fi novel.

They just feel like the kinds of places where machines think.

I still love this so much. It's just so inadvertently mundane! A how-to guide for powering up your own humanoid robot.
