Someone Created A Sea Urchin Robot For Some Reason

Even though we're just at the tip of the iceberg of technological advancements, it seems like every second person is creating a robot of some sort. There are robots that deliver things to your house; robots that can perform heart surgery; and now, there's a sea urchin robot. Sure, I can understand why someone might want to create a robot to do a tedious task or perform it more precisely than humans can. But a sea urchin inspired robot... why? Well, I guess the answer is, why not?

The world's largest computer chip is called the Wafer Scale Engine, and it's slightly bigger than an iPad. This isn't huge - unless you compare it to the current size of computer chips, which are around the size of a finger nail or postage stamp. Now that's a big difference. And even more impressive is what the world's biggest computer chip will be able to do.

The Salmon Cannon: Catapulting Fish and People's Dreams Into The Future

Humans have interrupted a lot of natural processes. Highways divide forests, and dams interrupt the migration routes for fish. But that isn't to say that we haven't found solutions to some of the problems that we created. Wildlife bridges have been built over highways allow animals to cross the highway safely. And in a recent Twitter storm, the public has rediscovered an amazing apparatus that scientists released in 2014 which helps salmon migrate. It is called the Salmon Cannon. And as you can imagine, everyone is obsessed with it.
