    "Superclusters – regions of space that are densely packed with galaxies – are the biggest structures in the Universe. But scientists have struggled to define exactly where one supercluster ends and another begins. Now, a team based in Hawaii has come up with a new technique that maps the Universe according to the flow of galaxies across space. Redrawing the boundaries of the cosmic map, they redefine our home supercluster and name it Laniakea, which means ‘immeasurable heaven’ in Hawaiian.  "
    Giant French Fries Bed
    Other   /   Comments
    This is the Supersize Bed designed and built by Cecilia Carey and Harry Parr. It looks suspiciously like a giant pack of McDonald's fries. All the fries are actually removable pillows though, so you and a sleepover friend can use them to try to beat each other off the bed like American Gladiators.
    "The Supersize Bed is a collaboration with architectural foodsmith Harry Parr. The supersize style chip bed is both compelling and functional. Taken out of their 'carton', an armful of chips can be stacked up as flexible bolster cushions"

    Jumbo Shrimp
    News   /   Comments
    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission posted some pictures of a shrimp to its facebook.
    Steve Bargeron was fishing from a dock in Fort Pierce as he watched a fellow fisherman pull this creature out of the water. Steve said the massive thing was about 18 inches long and striking its own tail, so he grabbed it by its back like a lobster. Scientists think it may be some type of mantis shrimp.
    That’s a large shrimp!

    Dyson 360 Eye Robot Vacuum


    The new Dyson 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner, it was unveiled in Tokyo. Like its name implies, the Dyson 360 Eye is equipped with a 360-degree panoramic camera and infrared sensors to look at an entire room and determine its position. The camera captures up to 30 frames per second and analyzes each shot to identify a room's geometry and potential obstacles, and update its path accordingly. Most robot vacuums have some sensor system to look or feel around a room, but a 360-degree panoramic camera is a new approach that could potentially make the 360 Eye the smartest robot vacuum yet. Instead of wheels, the Dyson 360 Eye moves around on rubber treads, letting it handle multiple floor types. According to Dyson, the 360 Eye traveled more than 670 miles and over 342,000 bump strips during testing to ensure that its suspension functioned. The Dyson 360 Eye will launch in Japan later this year, it isn't planned to hit North America until fall 2015.

    How To make M biusLoop Bacon
    DIY   /   Comments
    Instructables user  made this möbius bacon strips by twisting rashers of bacon around a rolling pin, then gluing them in place with a meat adhesive called transglutaminase. After letting the glue sit for a day, he removed the bacon from the rolling pin and baked it.
    "For generations, crazed dreamers and bold pioneers have searched for a method to turn ordinary bacon into a perfect loop of uninterrupted beauty. A loop with a single, seamless, salty surface. Never ending or beginning. Ever continuing, ever bacon.
    For just as long, mathematicians and butchers alike have sworn it couldn’t be done. “No,” they said. “We won’t give you a research grant,” they said. “There’s no such thing as a Department for Experimental Topo-charcuterie,” they said.
    Today, with the unveiling of the astonishing Möbius bacon, I intend to prove them all wrong

    Zoo polar bears will use slinky to warm up
    Tech   /   Comments
    Underground heating-cooling system will raise bar for energy efficiency
    Polar bears like it cool, elephants like it warm and the Oregon Zoo likes it sustainable. Now, zoo construction crews have begun work on a project that will let these two endangered species keep each other's thermostats at comfy levels via an innovative high-tech system buried 12 feet underground.
    There's also a "Slinky" involved. It's called a geothermal loop.
    Heat is created as a byproduct of cooling the polar bear swimming pools at the zoo. And rather than just expel that heat, the geothermal system will direct it through rows of Slinky-like coiled pipes buried deep in the northern section of Elephant Lands.
    The ground maintains a constant temperature, insulating the pipes. Then, when it's time to crank the thermostat, pumps connected to the system will deliver heat to Forest Hall, the 32,000-square-foot indoor portion of Elephant Lands.
    The geothermal loop and other energy-efficient design systems are expected to cut Elephant Lands' energy requirements in half, reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent and serve as the primary heat source for what will be one of the country's largest indoor elephant facilities.
