3D-printing robot by Apis Cor-13

Four years ago James Young lost his left arm after falling in between two train carriages. Now Konami has helped build him a replacement for that arm, inspired by Big Boss and Metal Gear Solid.

The idea was simple: build a cutting edge bionic arm inspired by Big Boss's arm in Metal Gear Solid V. Arguably a bizarre marketing stunt, but the end ...  View More

Here's a too-real, too-relatable video of a lazy dog engaged in quiet battle with a Roomba. The puppy, named Gauge, belongs to Texas couple Julie and Andrew Zak, who uploaded this video of him trying to rest in the very spot their Roomba was trying to clean.
