The word 'robot' generally has negative connotations attached to it, but MIT's mini cheetah robots are absolutely adorable. MITBiomimetic Robotics students recently took the dog-sized robots out for a play on the university lawn, and the result was way cuter than we expected. The robots aren't designed to just be cute and play soccer - they were built with the purpose to save lives with elderly care, deliveries and emergency response.
The mini cheetahs can run up to 5 miles per hour, flip themselves over if fallen, and they're relatively cheap to make and repair. Controlled with remotes, the agility of these robots has not been seen in robotics before. The next hurdle for the team is to build cameras onto the robots, enabling them to walk around without being remotely controlled by humans. But for now, they're delighful to watch.
Usually when you read hybrid illustrations your mind will most likely just venture to photoshop. Yup, photoshop battles of combining animals with something else to create a hybrid.

R/photoshopbattles is arguably one of the best subreddits on Reddit. And this proves it. After a Redditor uploaded this photo of a very menacing little girl holding an owl, things got out of hand—as they should have. Take a look at the best edits Reddit could come up with...
The poor child was stuck with a raft on his head and the Internet saved the little dude from his struggle by turning him into a flying saucer, ocean monster, and even teaming him up with Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Galahad the Pure, Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot, and the aptly named Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Film.
Donald you ol' devil dog, you robe wielding hip Playboy wannabe.
This Hefner infused Donny J is the Trumpster that I'd love to get to know. Despite the whole 'deer in headlights' look on his face, every part of this photo screams 'laid back and ready to party'.
Like, he hasn't even bothered to hunt down a silk robe woven with gold and dyed with the blood of 3rd world children. This a regular old bathrobe that you could get at Bed Bath and beyond, there's nothing special about it at all. Your grandma probably wears the same exact one.
This is a Trump from a time when he didn't bathe in orange goo and hadn't experienced some heinous Bond-villain-level personal tragedy that made him want to conquer the entire world.
This is the Trump who was a strict centrist and hadn't yet felt the pangs to build a Great Wall of Texas as a monument to his existence on earth.
Hell, I'd probably shotgun a beer with this guy. So, here's to you, Donny. This Photoshop battle is in honor of your past self and that chill ass dude who you could have been.
If you know anything about 'Suicide Squad', then you know just how METHOD Jared Leto is. Like, seriously, this guy is EDGY and it sounds like he spent most of his time on set just making sure everyone was clear on that. Now that he's out of costume, it seems like he had a hard time letting go of the Joker's trademark green color. After the Suicide Squad premiere this outfit became part of a glorious photoshop battle because, well, this is the internet. It's what we do.
As a kid, we've all lost something important on a family vacation. It can be an item as simple as a towel, or something catastrophic like your favorite stuffed animal. Things happen. It's all a part of growing up. That's why it was no surprise that there was such a HUGE response when Redditor kontankarite posted the following message : "Friend's son lost his favorite toy. Parents said the elephant is traveling around the world. Would love to share images of his travel with his son."
