    "Jedi Chimpmunk Squirrels to the rescue! If you're the kind of Star Wars fan who enjoys anything and everything to do with a galaxy far, far away, this epic chipmunk lightsaber battle might be right up your alley. We assume one squirrel is a Jedi and the other has clearly gone to the dark side. Watch out for those chimpmunks, especially when they have lightsabers."
    Cassette Shaped Coffee Table
    The cassette tape coffee table was commissioned by Rob Ireland and built by Ross Langley. The gigantic cassette tape sits atop custom made steel legs and is built with removable remote and bottle holders, cleverly positioned in cassette’s holes. The coolest part is probably the cassette’s label, which you can actually write on because that part is actually a white board.

    "The Waggoner Ranch in north Texas is slightly smaller than Rhode Island and is the largest ranch in the U.S. within a single fence. Everything about it is Texas-scale: the colorful history, the sprawl, the oil that lies beneath it, and the feud among the heirs that is forcing a court-ordered sale. This old-fashioned working ranch comes with 6,800 cattle, 500 quarter horses, more than 1,000 producing oil wells, nearly 30,000 acres of farmland and more than 150 years of history. The price tag: $725 Million. " [ link ]

    "After learning new software and programming languages, Stanford students in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have an opportunity to choose a creative task and design a robot to perform the task for demonstration. The tasks call for a wide range of fundamental skills, but generally require the robot to sense where it is in space, detect objects around it, and then autonomously interact with those objects in its environment. Recent projects include pingpong, the Japanese cup-and-ball game, Kendama, and a landing pad that helps a quad-copter touch down safely. "

    World's first airborne wind turbine will bring energy to remote areas. I think this is a neat concept- I am curious to know the cost/kilowatt based on this design.
    From their website: "Altaeros Energies is announcing the first planned commercial demonstration of its BAT (Buoyant Airborne Turbine) product in partnership with the Alaska Energy Authority. The Alaska project will deploy the BAT at a height of 1,000 feet above ground, a height that will break the world record for the highest wind turbine in the world. Altaeros has designed the BAT to generate consistent, low cost energy for the remote power and microgrid market, including remote and island communities; oil & gas, mining, agriculture, and telecommunication firms; disaster relief organizations; and military bases. The BAT uses a helium-filled, inflatable shell to lift to high altitudes where winds are stronger and more consistent than those reached by traditional tower-mounted turbines. High strength tethers hold the BAT steady and send electricity down to the ground. The lifting technology is adapted from aerostats, industrial cousins of blimps, which have lifted heavy communications equipment into the air for decades."

    "Everything around us is made up of chemicals from the water you drink to the air you breathe -literally water is a chemical substance which is why it’s frustrating when companies consistently tout their foods as chemical-free or you hear somebody say if you can’t pronounce an ingredient you don’t need. …Now this isn’t a defense of processed foods and it’s not to say that one side is better or worse than the other but simply that foods are complex things and a little perspective can go a long way. You simply can’t leave a chemical-free life like some brands would like you to think the word detox is strictly a marketing myth.  "

    Sam Van Aken, an artist and professor at Syracuse University, uses "chip grafting" to create trees that each bear 40 different varieties of stone fruits, or fruits with pits. The grafting process involves slicing a bit of a branch with a bud from a tree of one of the varieties and inserting it into a slit in a branch on the "working tree," then wrapping the wound with tape until it heals and the bud starts to grow into a new branch. Over several years he adds slices of branches from other varieties to the working tree. In the spring the "Tree of 40 Fruit" has blossoms in many hues of pink and purple, and in the summer it begins to bear the fruits in sequence—Van Aken says it's both a work of art and a time line of the varieties' blossoming and fruiting. He's created more than a dozen of the trees that have been planted at sites such as museums around the U.S., which he sees as a way to spread diversity on a small scale.
