By placing 99 working phones in one spot, this man tricked Google Maps into thinking the street is jammed and as a result to divert traffic to different routes. Only several dozens of phones are standing between you and never having to sit in traffic again (just kidding, please don't try this at home).

Move Over CyberTruck, Rivian Is Taking the Stage

After the viral fame of Tesla's CyberTruck, its rough for any company to pull off that kind of hype. But one company doesn't need to destroy supposedly bulletproof glass to prove they have a contender to bring to the fight. Rivian is not a Kickstarter startup looking to generate interest. The company has recently completed over $1.3 billion in funding from Amazon, Ford, and Cox Automotive. Amazon alone ordered 100,000 of the vehicles.

The company had over 100,000 pre-orders before the vehicle itself had even been unveiled, and a few weeks later that had tripled. The focus of the company was to make a truck that could get down and dirty as much as the rest of what was on the market, unlike the Tesla offering. And also combine that with the needs of conservation-minded consumers.

Rivian is breaking the mold and taking the reins from Tesla's CyberTruck with their own offering that has become a sensation.

No Humans Allowed: Petzbe Is a New Social Network For Pets Only

Do pets need social media apps? Well, they have one now. Petzbe is a new app for pets. Their owners use it, but they use it from their pet's perspective. Instead of liking and following each other, users get to sniff, lick, and share stories about their frolics in the dog park or how they got in trouble for shredding the roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.

Watch A Group Of Robots Frolic And Play (7 GIFs)

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.

Ryzhik, The Siberian Cat, Becomes The First In The World To Get Four Bionic Paws

Ryzhik (which translates to Ginger), unfortunately, lost all four of his paws back in January in a -40C storm in Tomsk, Russia. When he was found, all his paws had been so badly frostbitten and with gangrene developing at lightning speed, there was no choice but to amputate. 

Luckily, Ryzhik's new owner truly cares for this cat who has overcome such great odds. The owner took Ryzhik to a special clinic in Novosibirsk that specializes in artificial limbs.
