Twitter's Horrified After Amazon's Announcement About Delivery Drivers Being Allowed Into Your Home

The new service will work alongside Amazon's Cloud Cam and a 'smart lock' to allow for vetted Amazon delivery drivers entry into Prime customers' homes that aren't around. Naturally, the 'revolutionary' service was met with a tidal wave of apprehension from people that aren't totally down with "thoroughly vetted" strangers being inside their damn homes while they're away...

This Burger Robot Makes Better Burgers Than You Do

A restaurant in San Francisco has changed the face of fast food: instead of employing cooks to flip burgers, they invented a robot. It slices the vegetables, grates the cheese, grills the meat and arranges your burger for you before your eyes. The future of fast food is here, and it looks tasty as heck.

Ten Satisfying Mechanical GIFs

Most of the time, life doesn't go as smoothly as we want it to. Life has nasty little surprises around the corner. But there are some things that will always work like clockwork: machines.

Mechanical things are dependable. Predictable. So here are ten mechanical GIFs of things working that will satisfy your innate desire for order.

An AI Robot Learnt How to Solve A Rubik's Cube One-Handed

AI seems to be moving forward in leaps and bounds these days (sometimes literally). In the latest advancement of robotics, OpenAI has just released footage of Dactyl, it's AI powered robot (which has just one humanoid hand) solving a Rubik's cube. It's not about the speed, but rather the dexterity required to solve a Rubik's cube one-handed (heck, even solving a Rubik's cube with both hands is difficult for me). The most impressive thing is that the robot learnt to solve it all by itself.

AI Robots Are Being Trained to 3D Print Rockets

3D printing has really taken off in the past few years. What started off small scale is now expanding to being able to print rockets. Not just parts - entire rockets. That's what the folks over at Relativity Space have been working on, and they may just revolutionize the rocket industry - both on Earth and in space. If things go well, the startup is hoping that their AI will be able to oversee the building of rockets on Mars. Life is starting to sound a lot like science fiction...

NASA Released an Amazing 3D Map of the Moon

Most of us see the moon almost every night, but few people have seen a decent high-res picture of the moon, let alone a high-res picture of the dark side of the moon. To be able to see the moon - every side of it - in detail would really require being in space and flying around it. And 99.9% of us Earthlings don't have that opportunity (yet). So once again, NASA has come to the rescue, this time providing us with an amazing 3D map of the whole moon for computer graphics artists to use to their heart's content. For the first time, we can explore the moon (digitally). And it's incredible. If you want to see some more amazing photos from NASA, check out these new photos of Mars
