According to a year's worth of research provided to Wired by data-crunching startup Curalate, Paula Deen's recipe for "Aunt Peggy's Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad" has been repinned 307,000 times, liked 800 times and commented on 300 times.
This 6.5 cm robot can move at 30 body lengths per second. If it were a full size car it would move 400 miles per hour. That's crazy!
The robot was developed by researchers at John Hopkins and it was shown off at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Germany. The unnamed robot is tiny too. 6.5 by 5.5 by 1 centimeters. It could very well be the fastest robot ever for its size.
One guy spent a whole lot of hours installing each version of Windows from 1.0 to 8.0 Pro and sped up the whole footage so we don't have to sit through such boring times.

Is this Star Trek or this is real space? What do you think?
You're looking at the sun. A member of Expedition 36, the newly installed ISS crew, snapped this impressive shot as the station recently passed over Minnesota. While he's no Chris Hadfield just yet, we may yet see some more interesting stuff coming our way. Hopefully.
Home reorganization isn't as simple as one tasks it to be sometimes. That's if you don't have an imagination at all. But if you're in trouble in that department, it's nice to know that there are apps out there that can give you a hand with it. Here are a couple of them.
If only you had a machine to remember what you dreamt about the night before? What if we could actually invent something to record our dreams? Would that be possible?
AsapSCIENCE dives into the mysterious world of dreaming to answer that question on whether or not it is possible to get technology and software to translate our dreams into actual recordings. I'd imagine there would be a lot of horror stories[AsapSCIENCE]
You know science sucks when it tells you that dinosaurs had feathers, or something other you thought to be true but is not, no thanks to science. There goes what we were taught, and what we can imagine.
