Last Week in 5 Links #48

This week we have plastic digesting enzymes, pirate academy from SoT, a starship comparison video, a movie trailer and Unity all handpicked by me.

New Enzymes Digests Plastic 6 Times Faster

The growing plastic pollution problem is now affecting everyone, no matter where you live. A group of scientists has paired a plastic-eating enzyme called PETase with another enzyme to create a cocktail that can digest plastic up to six times faster than previously possible. I hope that this discovery will be a solution to the problem.

Sea of Thieves Pirate Academy

When I first read the title, I was like “erm…what???” So now you can enrol to be a better pirate…Interesting. When I first played SoT, I’ve got completely lost as I didn’t know what to do, where to go and I’ve found the game was hard to play without the linear story. The game allows you to forge your own story. This academy will help new players to find their way into the pirate world.

Starship Size Comparison

The selection of starships in this video is awesome. They aren’t from just games, movies or books, they’ve collected them from every source. Good quality video, I loved watching every minute.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Raya, a lone warrior is trying to track down the last dragon to save the world of Kumandra from an evil force. The trailer is amazing, funny and gives an overall idea of what the movie is about. The character is likeable after half a minute. It will come to theaters on March 2021.

Unity Visual Scripting

I’ve started to use visual scripting roughly a month ago, and I was so happy to find that you can still create something in Unity without any background in coding. Obviously, it is a steep learning curve and very difficult if you don’t know programming, but it is doable on your own. This video will teach you how to configure and navigate Bolt, where to find resources and sample projects.
