Milind Raj went out for his normal morning walk last month when something that sounded like an animal whimper was heard off in the distance. So, the 27-year-old found his way to the sound, and discovered a stranded puppy in a drain. Thankfully, he builds robots for a living, and returned to his lab to build an AI-controlled robotic arm attached to a giant drone, for the daring rescue 6-hours later. "The AI helped me monitor the animal's heart rate, If the grip was too tight, the pup would suffocate. When it was on the ground, it vomited plastic including paan masala packets that people had carelessly tossed into the drain," said Mr Raj.

Approximately 4-years ago, Honda revealed the world's fastest lawn mower, called the Mean Mower, and it set a Guinness World Record for the fastest speed reached by a lawn mower.

It's now powered by a CBR1000RR Fireblade motorcycle engine that generates 192 horsepower, enabling it to hit a top speed of 134 mph, which 18 mph faster than its predecessor. How fast is it from 0-60 mph? Well, the first-generation model could hit 60 mph in a mere 4.0-seconds, so we could be looking a sub 4.0-second times for the Mk2.

ICON 3D-Printed Home

ICON has developed a method to 3D print single-story 650-square-foot homes using cement in a mere 12-24 hours. Currently a 100-home community will be fabricated for residents in El Salvador next year. The Vulcan printer can print an entire home for $10,000, but eventually, the company plans to bring the cost down to just $4,000. "It's much cheaper than the typical American home. It's capable of printing a home that's 800 square feet, a significantly bigger structure than properties pushed by the tiny home movement, which top out at about 400 square feet. In contrast, the average New York apartment is about 866 square feet," said co-founder Jason Ballard. Continue reading for more interesting images from around the web.
