On today's show, we're. It's an interesting bit of research, mostly because it's inspired by human bone structure and is both flexible and strong. We might see this technology find its way into Boeing's planes (or even General Motors cars) in the future, but for now, we'll have to appreciate the technology that made the futuristic material possible via Boeing's recent informational video.

BesMan AILA has articulated fingers on both arms, cameras in its head, a short-range laser scanner in its chest, and other various features and connectors, making the robot a great candidate for someday helping ISS astronauts by completing menial work, thus freeing up humans to focus on more complex tasks.
Ooho might be the weirdest "water bottle" we've ever seen. Made in the same general way liquid food spherification works in molecular gastronomy, Ooho allows a human to get their water fix from what looks like a gigantic drop of dew.
