Every week, we think we've hit peak first-world problems with some of the stories we cover on the show, but this one definitely ranks up high. Japan's government is putting pressure on the toilet industry to figure out how to create flushing toilets and working sinks for elevator cars across the country. It's not because Japanese citizens can't hold it though -- earthquakes often strand passengers for lengthy periods of time with nowhere to do their business.
We check out a cool band releasing their debut album with a catch: if you use the app, you can listen to the songs for free, but you have to be in the woods for the play button to work. Lastly, Harvard is currently developing a new power glove for disabled patients and we tell you all about it.
