Boston-Dynamics-Spot

We’re all for modern technology, everything being connected to the Internet and remotely manageable, and modern digital assistants that are always at our beck and call, but we’re drawing the line at Boston Dynamics Spot robot. After being unveiled a couple years ago, the creepy AF robot dog Spot that opens doors, carries payloads, climbs stairs and can even get up if it falls is finally available for commercial use. It has a top speed of 3 mph. It has a 90 minute runtime for each swappable battery. It can carry up to 14kg and has 2 different payload ports for devices like the arm that can open doors. It’s also capable of operating in extreme temperatures and is IP54 rated for protection from dust and rain. Oh yeah, and it also has a 360-degree camera that enables it to avoid obstacles. No word yet on the cost, but the price tag can’t be anywhere near as terrifying as a future that’s going to be run by robot dogs overlords.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
