Does your couch need a high-tech makeover? This robocouch developed by students at the University of New South Wales takes you for a comfy ride controlled via USB gamepad.
On today's show, a soft robot that can withstand extremes like snow, fire, wind, and water; students in Australia create a robotic couch; and adventurer George Kourounis descends into a volcano for the selfie of a lifetime.
Adventurer and explorer George Kourounis snapped a self-portrait at the bottom of Marum Crater, a volcanic location so inhospitable, it's possible fewer people have been there than have been to the moon. Where would you want to go if you could snap a selfie anywhere?
With a Raspberry Pi and USB gamepad controller letting you run riot on your sofa, this student project is couched in innovation.
