Sorry I can't embed it here, it's not a regular YouTube video.

The video is only like 30 seconds long, but it's fun to see scientists using a LEGO pirate in a dingy getting put to the test in a wave machine.

That video was rather... anti-climatic, considering they said it was "demolished".

Still, it's interesting to see what they use and it's not always really high-tech equipment! (In the case of the boat anyway.)

But imagine the results of a REAL boat or ship tipping over sideways from rogue waves. It could be pretty bad.

:thumbup: for the scientists, go Lego!

I agree, I was expecting a title wave, but it's short and therefore worth it.  :pir-tongue:

Thanks for sharing!
It's funny to see the pirates floating there and not realizing the big wave behind them :pir_laugh2:

I just had a vision of a bunch of top scientists in white labcoats (possibly smoking pipes) stood around watching this tiny wave move sllooowwwwllly towards the Lego boat, knocking it over. "Ah so that's how it works!"

Nice find!  :pir-sweet:
