Tomorrow Daily 063: The Google Science Fair, a custom open-source robot and more

On today's show, we praise the amazing finalists of this year's Google Science Fair, check out a "hack" that allows you to use IKEA products and your iPhone as a game controller and give our blessing to a custom, open-source robot named Jimmy.

We can't believe the finalists in the Google Science Fair are all teenagers, but they've each created projects so remarkable, we felt like they were more than deserving of our time today. There was only one official Grand Prize awarded, but they were all super-interesting projects each entrant should be immensely proud of. Here's the full photo of the winners from this year's event:

In addition, we're checking out a way to combine basic IKEA products and the iPhone into a game controller and light-source monitor, and discussing how an open-source robot named Jimmy might help robotics enthusiasts get into the game quicker and easier (though it's not cheap).
