science tech comics maki_naro thomas_edison galileo mendel columbus mind_blown

Txchnologist recently unveiled four comics -  illustrated by web cartoonist Maki Naro of PopSci’s Boxplot - in which scientists, inventors, explorers and astronomers of yore time travel to the present day only to have their mind’s blown by modern technology.

Edison goes to a movie being presented in 3-D. Mendel sees the digital information underlying his physical traits. Galileo peers into the far reaches of the universe from the comforts of a planetarium’s reclining chair. Christopher Columbus gets plugged into navigation aided by global positioning satellites and smartphone-based mapping apps. 

Here they all are, packaged for your viewing pleasure in a single post.
