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.

This Robot Relies on Human Reflexes For Balance

Contrary to what science fiction predicted robotics in 2019 would be like, robots are nowhere near being autonomous yet (although they are able to do some pretty cool things). It's taken researchers a long time to get robots to be able to walk like humans - so getting them to respond to different environments with fast reflexes is even further away than our hopeful ancestors imagined. But these researchers are looking at things in a different way, and a robot that can walk and balance like a human may be closer than we thought it was.

Apple Face ID Announcement Inspires Anxiety, Hilarious Memes

Apple announced the iPhone 8 and iPhone X on Tuesday, September 12th. Some people are freaking out about the iPhone X's jaw-dropping price, while others are more concerned about their new facial recognition software - which will be used to unlock the phone. The internet is already rife with memes about the iPhone's unlocking methods, so it comes as no surprise that this announcement caused a stir. 

The announcement has inspired memes regarding actual security concerns (government agencies having access to your face) to the more predictable theme of Game of Thrones' faceless men. How do you feel about this announcement? We might care more...if we could afford it.
