TARS Robot Interstellar

Ochre Jelly, best known for his LEGO creations, has built a real-life TARS suit. It consists of a wood frame clad in aluminum, complete with camera, LCD display, audio amplifier as well as a headset to help him navigate his surroundings while staying hidden inside. Weighing in at 40-pounds, Heath's TARS suit is human-powered and moves thanks to a couple of handles and arm rests built into the back, unlike the 200-pound puppet used in the actual Interstellar film.

Large Hadron Collider Restarted

Scientists at Europe's physics research center CERN on Sunday restarted their "Big Bang" Large Hadron Collider (LHC), after 2-years of maintenance, embarking on a bid to probe into the "dark universe" they believe lies beyond the visible one. However, it will be 2 more months before particle collisions - miniature versions of the Big Bang primordial blast that brought the universe into being 13.8 billion years ago - begin, and at least a year more before any results can be expected.

Bio Refrigerator Gel

We have seen the future of refrigerators, and it includes the Bio Robot Refrigerator. This strange-looking creation can be mounted on a wall (horizontally, vertically or even on the ceiling), and it doesn't have a motor or other traditional technology. That's right, the bio gel does all the work - so, 90% of the appliance is actual usable space. Simply place the food into its biopolymer gel, which has no odor and is not sticky by the way, and it's magically suspended and cooled until you need it again.

Dance Installation Light

Hakanai is an interactive installation like no other, as the images are on-stage animations that move in physical patterns according to the rhythm of the live sounds that they follow. In the Japanese language, Hakanai refers to that which is temporary / fragile, evanescent / transient, and in this case, something set between dreams as well as reality.

SnapPower USB Wall Charger

At first glance, this looks like any other standard wall outlet, but on the right side of SnapPower, there's a USB charging port. That's right, there's no need to plug in any power adapters when charging your gadgets; simply plug the USB cable directly into SnapPower. It uses power prong technology in the replacement cover plate, which draws power using a pair of metal prongs that reach around the existing outlet and make contact with the screws holding its electrical wiring in place.
