Newest Honda ASIMO Robot

“The 4ft tall, 115-pound robot now features 5 dextrous fingers on each hand with force feedback sensors. As we saw in its first North America demonstration on Wednesday, ASIMO can pick up a sealed container filled with orange juice, unscrew the top, pick up a paper up with its other hand, pour the juice & carefully set both cup & container back on the table.” — Mashable

Glow-In-The-Dark Element Soaps

“We were going to make a Silkwood shower reference here, but polling folks in the office basically nobody under 35 has seen it. So now it’s like we made the reference, and we didn’t, which is the best of both worlds. Moving on. Scrub yourself clean with this 3-piece set of nuclear soaps. Contains uranium (glows green), plutonium (glows blue), and a fallout shelter sign (glows white). Of course, it doesn’t *actually* contain any of those things. We like you to be glowing with clean and not with irradiation. For actual ingredients, see the Details & Specs tab, but rest safe at night knowing it’s vegan-friendly and not tested on animals. Unless you count people.” w/ photos

“It’s incredible what we’ve found buried in the depths of the sea. Every shipwreck is exciting, but sometimes divers stumble across objects that have no business being near water in the first place. From 19th-century locomotives to ancient cities that previously lived only through legend, the ocean is a vast treasure chest filled with the gems of history. And with only between 5 and 7 percent of the sea floor charted, who knows what else it could be hiding.” w/ photos
