    Hedgehog Dumplings
    Body | Food
    Look at these adorable little hedgehogs, they are available on one restaurant, in the Chinatown section of Yokohama, Japan. Cool
    "The spiky little treats are available at Yoseigo, a dim sum takeout joint that’s been in business since 1946. If you’re after orthodox fare, Yoseigo has steamed shrimp dumplings, egg rolls, and the like. On the other hand, if you’re in the mood for something sweet, and also a little playful, you can’t go wrong with their hedgehog dumplings.
    The palm-sized snacks appear to be steamed first, and then later deep-fried to help give them a more defined shape. This brings us to what might be the only negative point about the hedgehog dumplings. Though they have a pleasantly crisp texture, the “quills” on their spiky backs are indeed a little sharp, so you’ll want to chew carefully to keep from poking yourself

    Asian Food

    "My biggest concern revolves around the snacks I brought. You see there’s this Filipino snack called sweet corn and it has an uncanny resemblance to Corn Pops. I brought some to school one day in a sandwich bag and a classmate would come up to me and excitedly ask “Hey, can I have some? I love those.” And in my head I’m like wow, my non-Filipino classmate is not only aware of his Filipino snack but enjoys consuming them like I do. So she reaches end takes a handful and stuffs them in her mouth, chews for two seconds immediately changed her expression to disgust and regret."

    Body | Food
    Icycl is a convenient fruit-flavored ice pop made with vodka.
    "Take your boozing to frosty (and fruity) new altitudes with the Icycl – Vodka Ice Pops. Is it a popsicle? Is it a fruit sorbet? Is it a slushie? In truth it’s an exciting blend of all three, with delicious alcohol thrown into the mix. It’s like a vodka jelly [jello shots], only refreshingly icy and you don’t have to indignantly suck it out of a tacky plastic shot glass – you get to squeeze, smush and wring it out instead!"
    Icycls are available in three flavors: Apple, Blackcurrant, and Lemon & Lime. You can get them in boxes of six or ten. They contain 6.4% ABV, so you should definitely hide them away in your freezer where kids can’t find them.

    Drones based on birds

    By Ben on Wed Jan 28 2015 |

    Scientists have turned to Mother Nature’s most adept aerial acrobats – birds, bees, bats and other animals -- to inspire their designs for self-directed drones. With the right tweaks, these drones have the potential to fight forest fires, spot poachers and catch polluters. But first the unmanned machines have to be able to maneuver in tight spaces and think for themselves. And that’s where nature’s original high-fliers come in.
    Swallows, for example, swoop and swerve in patterns that would knock top fighter pilots unconscious. Tracing the birds’ paths, along with those of other species, scientists are learning how to make their drones more nimble.
    Recently, a team from MIT created an artificial pilot that could control a birdlike drone to twist through different sets of goalposts. To zoom through vertical goalposts, the drone knifes sideways and just slips by. The drone can do this and then quickly right itself to shoot through a set of horizontal goalposts too.  
    To navigate obstacles a bit more complex than lab set ups, the team also created an autopilot system for the drone to track how close it got to things like trees and buildings. Ultimately, the goal is to create an onboard computer that can tell the drone to pitch and roll out of harm’s way.
    That same team also created a drone that can hit the brakes and safely park itself on a thin wire. If a fixed-wing aircraft did this, it would stall and crash. But by creating a computer algorithm to read airflow over the wings and adjust its tail flaps, the drone sets itself down safely without a scratch.
