This week in Crave: The on-the-run edition

This week, we were captivated by lifelike mannequins, a robot that aims to run like a human, and an adorable young "Star Wars" fan.

This week, we brought you one of our favorite Crave stories ever, about Katie Goldman, a ridiculously adorable first-grader who was teased at school for being a girl "Star Wars" fan. Her story made it online, leading to an avalanche of support from the public, including cast members of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." Sometimes we really love the Interwebs, and we definitely love Katie.

Katie, if you ever want a job as Crave's Star Wars correspondent, you've got it!
