Ancient human ancestor hid bodies in near-inaccessible caves, Ep. 218

Culture
Hey guys, my name is Stephen Beacham, and here's what's happening this week on CNet's Crave blog. [MUSIC] The Yo-Yo Yoga mat is like one of those old school slap on bracelets, and rolls itself up after you've said namaste. The creators of the Yo-Yo Yo mat. Think that rolling up your yoga mat is a pain in your yoga pants and your mat just winds up looking messy after your sun salutations. So they've created a special yoga mat with built in metal strips that curl up and keep your yoga mat neatly rolled up until it's next use. When you unroll the mat you simply toss it on the floor with the top side facing up. When you're done you simply flip the mat over and it will Quickly roll itself up, making you feel like getting back into that hero pose. The Yo-yo Mat recently passed its funding goal on Kickstarter, and can be yours for the pledged price of $79. Apple held their annual iPhone launch event on Wednesday and wowed everyone with the new iPhone and new iPad and a new Pencil, but there was also the bizarre. Check out the Amanda [UNKNOWN] break down of the most bizarre moments from this year's Apple event, including a very questionable musical guest, which left me scratching my head. We thought it would be only appropriate to close with a sensational music act. We have one of my absolute favorite bands here. Please join me in welcoming The Wiggles. [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC] Hot potato, hot potato. [MUSIC] Hot potato, hot potato. [MUSIC] Hot potato, hot potato. Potato, potato, potato, potato. Cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti. Cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti. [MUSIC] And the winner of the useless but interesting award goes to the robot that separates Skittles by color. [BLANK_AUDIO] Congratulations, robot that separates Skittles by color, you are useless but interesting. An American paleoanthropologist named Lee Berger Believes that he has found the remains of a new human ancestor deep in a cave in South Africa. The characteristics of the fossils discovered match very closely to humans and have been named Homo naledi, which translates to the word star in the local african language. The researchers have been able to extract. 1500 specimens from 15 homo niledi individuals, with the help of small-framed scientists that can fit through the narrow passages of the cave excavation site. The scientists believe the homo niledi were Disposing of their dead family members deep within the cave, which was previously thought to be something that only modern human beings practiced, making this find one of the most extraordinary discoveries in history. It opens the door to the possibility of an entirely new species of ancient human like beings. Make sure to watch The upcoming National Geographic slash NOVA documentary about the discovery.
