Finally, the freezing temperatures are somewhat over, and the outside seems almost livable, as opposed to run-for-your-life-or-else-you-freeze-able. Our links also, no matter the season, stay well-selected and non life-threatening.

Visualizing Sorting Algorithms
Sorting algorithms are always interesting to look at, just wish there was more of them on the maker's website. (Via Gizmodo)
Building The Mountainbeest
Fascinating leg geometry inspired by Theo Jansen‘s Strandbeest, would be so awesome to see at MakerFaire. (Build by [Jeremy], via Hackaday).
Rocket-powered cats

Another Strandebeest version, now in miniature and with some electronics added, via IEEE Spectrum.
