One time in college someone gave me something to try and I ended up sitting around for about 10 hours thinking about how we depend too much on friction, man. If cars didn't have to use friction, they could go so much faster!
This idea is kind of like that idea, but much cooler. Brendan Dawes wanted to experiment a little with interfaces and came up with silly, innocuous Play-Doh. Add some Play-Doh and the movie speeds up. Take some away and it slows down. You're not going to be pulling off any real time editing with this sort of visual/non-toxic clay interface, but the concept of the "warm and fuzzy" PC connection is excellent.
