Visualizing sorts with Hungarian dancing, animated robots and cards!

Here is a collection of my favourite videos visualising sort algorithims in different ways. They range from the possibly quite useful, to the slightly trippy to the hilarious. Enjoy.

Radix sort on a running track

Everything makes sense now, right?

Bubble Sort vs Quicksort with animated robots

This is probably the most educational of my selection. Could do without the voiceover to be honest. Anyone want to make a dubstep remix?

Insert sort with cards

Another educational one.

Quicksort with Hungarian dancers

These folks have done a bunch of other sorting videos too!

15 sorts in 6 minutes with computer graphics

Minimalist and hypnotic.
