We're back from the weekend, full of crazy Katy Perry performances and crazier football plays, and ready to talk about all kinds of neat news we've combed the Internet for: Google X (the super secret lab with experimental projects like Project Loon and other crazy ideas) is growing synthetic human skin to help test an idea involving a health wearable and nanoparticles; the University of Manitoba in Canada is showing off Jennifer, an adorable robot who can play hockey and ski; and NASA successfully launched its SMAP satellite last weekend.
We'll tell you what those stories are all about, but before that, we'll also tell you a little bit about Monty Oum and Andrew Yoon, two colleagues of ours that were taken far too soon this past week. We'll miss you, guys. Safe travels.
