Happy Monday, fellow nerds! We're back in-studio, ready to tell you all about the cool stuff happening in geekdom today. There's a Georgia Tech robot that could be helpful for someday exploring the icy depths of Europa's oceans, a 50-meter high AR model from "Attack on Titan" that only a drone could capture on video, and a very cool contest from Disney and XPrize that asks kids to imagine a future invention or innovation.
We're also taking a look at Wakē, a strange but cool kind of alarm clock that uses warm LED lighting and focused audio, delivering a sunrise-like experience to an individual sleeper (as opposed to waking up everyone in the room). It's pretty interesting, and anything's got to be better than a screaming alarm clock, right?
