Dog Bed

Most dog beds are designed purely for function rather than form, but this one aims to combine it with some luxury. This particular creation was modeled after a bed you'd find in IKEA, complete with miniature pillow, blanket, night stands, and cups. However, when dogs aren't sleeping, they tend to keep their owner(s) very busy, and that's why we've rounded up some creative gadgets, along with accessories, that every geek should have for their pets.

Synthetic Biological Leaf

What you're looking at above is a synthetic leaf that could one day help humans colonize space. To create this, scienctists first extract the protein-based material directly from the silk fiber, which is then used to stabilize organelles. "The man-made leaf is lighter than the real thing, but better suited to long-term life in space because scientists don't know if organic plants would survive and flourish outside our atmosphere the way humans would need them to. And if mankind is to colonize space, those living on another planet would need to produce their own O2 gas," says RT. Continue reading for more.

Severed Spinal Cord

Darek Fidyka, a fireman paralyzed from the waist down after his spinal cord was completely severed in a tragic knife attack, has regained the ability to walk thanks to an experimental cell transplant by British scientists. Though some victims of partial spinal injury have recovered, a complete break was generally assumed to be irreparable, that is until...scientists in Poland used cells from Fidyka's nose to re-grow nerve cells which were then inserted into his spine, repairing the broken link.

HENDO Hoverboard

Always wanted a hoverboard like the one Marty McFly used in Back to the Future? If so, you may soon be able to purchase one just like it for a cool $10,000. One caveat: it requires a metal floor beneath you. Los Gatos-based startup Arx Pax is making the HENDO a reality, with the board itself relying on four disc-shaped hover engines that generate an electromagnetic field over a conductive surface (like copper sheeting), which in turn creates an opposing field within the surface. The two fields then repel each other, allowing the board to hover about an inch off the ground. Continue reading for another video and more information.

Another day, another UFO sighting, but this one isn't just a blurry video shot by someone with a smartphone. This unidentified flying object recently photobombed astronauts making repairs to the International Space (ISS) earlier this month, making it a viral internet sensation. It happened when Flight Engineers Reid Wiseman of NASA and Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency conducted a spacewalk outside the International Space Station to fix an electrical problem, and the UFO can be seen hovering just for a few seconds behind the astronauts, before the camera cuts to another angle.

Star Wars Everyday Life

At first, second, or third glance, these images just appear to be black & white scenes from everyday life, but upon closer inspection, you'll notice a few things not quite right. This was done intentionally by Toronto-based photographer Thomas Dagg, who digitally adds numerous characters, vehicles and objects from the movie into the landscape. "While some are quite obvious, like Yoda riding on the back of a young man running through the street, it might take viewers a little longer to identify more subtle details like the rebel insignia on a baseball field or the pairs of glowing eyes that are camouflaged in with piles of trash along the street," says My Modern Met.

Tetris Business Card

Not just any old piece of paper, this one by Oregon programmer Kevin Bates is basically a Game Boy-styled business card, called the Arduboy. It not only displays your resume, but also doubles as a playable "Tetris" game, complete with a replaceable battery that lasts up to 9-hours. This card became so popular online that Bates even ran a Kickstarter campaign for anyone who wanted their own Arduboy card - new version can even run Pokemon - for the price of $30.
