The Daily Word in Robot Hands, Mini Riots and Drones of the Force

The Daily Word

James Cauty, formerly of the British Acid House band KLF (Kopyright Liberation Front), has created a post-riot city in miniature, called "Aftermath Dislocation Principle (ADP)," peopled by tiny emergency workers, and staged in a shipping container. Viewers can study the scene through peepholes in the side of the container. The artist says the piece isn't necessarily a riot scene, and the piece is really about the viewer's reaction and the story that they themselves create as they try to make sense of an "aftermath" scene.

Former barista Tom Currie, of New Zealand, has decided to quit his day job and hunt Pokémon full time. He hopes to make it through the existential nightmare of reality without a paycheck with the help of friends and family, who are presumably long-suffering enablers.

Check out this 1980 Winter Olympics ad campaign sponsored by Chiquita banana, featuring a skiing banana. Yeah, you read that right.

Drone manufacturer, Propel, has created Star Wars-themed drones. Quadcopters of the Millennium Falcon, a T-65 X-Wing fighter, Darth Vader’s Tie Advanced X1, and a speeder bike from Return of the Jedi are now available for purchase.

Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa, Italy, have created a bionic fingertip that allows an amputee to distinguish between smooth and rough textures with 96 percent accuracy. If you haven't realized it yet, that's a game-changer. I'm not saying I want a robot hand. I'm saying I need one.
