The Feynman Lectures are now freely available online

The Feynman Lectures is one of the most popular lecture series in physics. It’s a great resource for science enthusiasts, students, and teachers, and each lecture is just fantastic in general. Now, Caltech and The Feynman Lectures website have collaborated to put these lectures online completely free of cost.

The lectures themselves were first presented at Caltech in the 1960s by the legendary physicist Richard Feynman. The lectures have since been combined into a three-volume book. To date, about 1.5 million English copies have been sold, but now that it’s free, that number will probably stagnate.

Score one for the good guys.

PlayStation Access has a video on YouTube showcasing some of Project CAR’s features. The customisable HUD is pretty neat. Come to think of it, I don’t recall any console game that allows you to change both the HUD elements as well as their positions.
