Video of the Day: why transistors are awesome

YouTube user 1vertiasium shows us how a transistor works in the video below. It's six minutes long, but you'd need some time to explain this incredibleness, too.

Transistors make your computer, the Internet, TVs, cellphones, satellites and lots of other things, you know, work. That's a big job, and 1veritasium's video manages to explain it clearly while wearing a silicon atom costume. We're impressed.
