Learn something new and feed your curiosity with Brain Pump.
Brain Pump is like the online version of an educational TV channel. The site features the best videos YouTube has to offer, but it doesn’t include the mindless content you’ve probably spent hours in the past watching. It only includes videos that help you learn something — and that can include videos with practical topics like “How Far Away Is The Moon?” as well as more abstract concepts like “Are Cell Phones Replacing Reality?” If you click “watch your first video” on the site’s homepage, you can continue watching short, randomized videos in a constant stream. You can always skip to the next video if you don’t like something.
Especially if you don’t have a cable subscription, having Brain Pump on in the background is a great way to mimic the experience of watching TV while also potentially learning something new. The site also makes it easy to filter based on topic — choosing from categories like “Psychology,” “Chemistry,” “Space,” “Business,” “Technology,” and more. If you’re interested in learning about a particular topic, Brain Pump makes it easier to find the best videos than it would be to search for them on YouTube on your own. You can also search directly for videos or topics, or contribute a link of your own. Brain Pump is different than other online education sites in that it only offers videos, but that makes it more entertaining. Sit back, relax, and learn something new.
