Remember Teddy Ruxpin, the animated talking teddy bear from the 80's? Well, he's back, and even more creepy, with fully animated digital eyes, hitting store shelves in 2017.



Though currently a prototype, they seem keen to keep the creepy eyes an integral part of the bear in the future, as they brought one out for the public at a trade show recently:




I feel like we've seen how this ends already...

Ever want to chuck your GoPro to get good aerial shots but don't have the right foam padding not to break it? Enter AER.





Their new invention--basically a giant Nerf arrow around a GoPro--makes it possible.



The videos sound like they wouldn't be worth seeing, but are surprisingly action-packed little bits of fun. I especially like the parts where it looks like you'll run smack into someone at the end of each one:

Bionic Yarn.

No, not from Spiderman, but yarn and fabrics made up of single-use plastic bottles--many found floating in the ocean--sewed into hip clothes. That's the idea behind the company Bionic Yarn, co-founded by Tyson Toussant, partnered with ocean protector Paul Watson, and with recording artist Pharrell Williams as their Creative Director.



They make denim jeans, snowboarding jackets, boat covers, furniture, and other products using their innovating product.

Their concept is to clean the oceans and promote using reusable products. For instance, they promote facts about plastic bottle usage:







Apparently, since "plastic bottles are made up of the same polymer as polyester," Bionic Yarn can bypass the use of crude oil-based yarn products through their own recycling process.




They refine the bottles into chips and then heat and pull-apart the fibers and spin them into yarn. They can then mix the yarn with cotten or wool for whatever item they want to sew.




These aren't your Mama's recycled pants.

Yalonda and Kayla Solseng are true princesses in love.

They captured their love, Disney-style, in a princess-themed engagement shoot in Glyndon, Minnesota, showing their love for the TV show "Once Upon A Time."




They started dating two-and-half years ago, and happily got hitched on September 3rd.They hope their story inspires other couples to create their own fairy tales, no matter the sexual preference.

"Gay marriage has been legalized in the U.S. for over a year and we hardly have gay or lesbian characters in children's movies ― let alone them being main characters," Yalonda said. "Kids want to be the characters they grow up with but when none of the characters represent you, then you feel alone. I want our photos to be shown to kids and families as a way of saying it's okay to be who you are. It's okay to be with the person you love."

DJ Khaled is an author now.

His book, "The Keys" hits stores this November 22nd, and will be found near the "Success, Motivation & Self-Esteem" section on your local bookstore's shelves.

The hip-hop producer promises to provide such tips for success as "don't drive your jet ski in the dark."




His publisher is promising that the book will answer your pressing questions, like "[breaking] down the philosophy behind his trending catchphrases, including 'another one,' 'secure the bag,' 'special cloth alert,' 'bless up' and more."

The book description sounds more like Khaled is fleeing from an oppressive Scientology group than writing from a producer's perspective (who are the THEY he is afraid of?):

The good folks over at the New York Times wanted to show how "the nation's largest restaurant chains have made a big deal in recent years about introducing smaller portion sizes," but they have continued to make their dishes so rich they contain "a full day's worth of calories."




So they made a story showing what rought 2,000 calories looks like from some large restaurant chains, noting that "depending on age and gender, most adults should eat between 1,600 and 2,400 calories a day."



Are you guilty of eating a full day's calories in one sitting? What do you think of how little some of these dishes are for packing in so many calories? Let us know in the comments what you're thinking.

I, for one, forgot how delicious milk shakes are and may have to add that to my next meal out. Wrong lesson here?

Tired of standing in line at your favorite bakery or morning coffee shop?

Enter the Nissan ProPILOT Chair, which will move forward for you, keeping pace with the other chairs around it.





Using the same technology as the Nissan Pilot, the chair uses "autonomous tech for sitting in line." The chair "automatically moves the next person in line forward when appropriate. It removes the need to stand, even the need to pay attention, for the most part. When someone leaves the queue, the chair automatically moves itself to the back of the line for the next person to sit down."


So read your books, check Facebook, put on your makeup... anything but pay attention in line.

So they took it upon themselves to answer GQ's article, picture-by-picture using bad*ss women climbers:
