This robot can protect coral reefs by hunting invasive fish

Lionfish are incredibly eye-catching creatures, and they’re a favorite of salt water aquarium enthusiasts because they just plain look cool. They’re also an incredibly troublesome species when they are introduced in areas where they don’t belong, and coral reefs in the Caribbean are under serious threat from an invasion. Now, researchers from the Worcester Polytechnic…

Someone built a pumpkin soup robot that is hilariously bad at serving pumpkin soup

Someone built a pumpkin soup robot that is hilariously bad at serving pumpkin soup

Someone built a pumpkin soup robot that is hilariously bad at serving pumpkin soup

It’s 2017, and these days technology is pretty impressive: Amazon has invented a method of delivery that simply lets the delivery person enter your home. Dominos may begin using self-driving cars. This pumpkin soup-serving robot, however, is not one of those impressive technological innovations. There are some things that we should always just leave to humans. Serving soup for instance. Let the humans keep serving soup, please.

Related article: Teens had 48 stolen pumpkins and 1 gourd crammed in ‘top-to-Bottom orange’ SUV, police say

Evidence that an old-fashioned waiter never goes out of style? Look to Simone Giertz who makes “crappy robots,” as an oddly admirable hobby, and then posts the results on Youtube. Giertz says, “I really dislike soup, especially pumpkin soup” as a disclaimer for her motivation for building the robot. Does she really need an excuse? Bring on the bad robots!

But first! The multi-talented and quite daring Giertz decides to make her own pumpkin soup. This will not be a store bought operation. She admits that, sure, she doesn’t exactly know how to make soup, but that doesn’t stop her, which is, again, oddly admirable.

“I’m going to do it the way I build robots,” she says, “which is to do it the way I think it should be done.”

Related article: Whiskey deodorant has landed on Kickstarter

She then brings out an extremely dangerous knife-wielding robot that is supposed to help you chop, but really just swings knives up and down at a distressing speed. Pushing that contraption aside, she finishes up her soup and brings out the soup-serving robot (which, by the way, she says is made with parts she 3-D printed herself).

The robot, it’s safe to say, does not work. It can barely hold a bowl. It sloshes the soup onto the table. When it tries to serve the soup to Giertz with a spoon, it dumps the entire bowl of yellowish liquid onto her black t-shirt. It is a disaster. It is hilarious.

Is there a lesson to be learned in the aftermath Giertz’s mad genius experiment? If so it’s that if you’re going to eat soup, just stick to using your own hands.



5 TV Shows Like ‘Mr. Robot’

Mr. Robot showcases some of the darker sides of technology and the power of big corporations. The story is told from the perspective of the main character and our unreliable narrator, Elliot Alderson, who has a mental health issue that causes him to occasionally become his father, Mr. Robot.

Rami Malek as Elliot Alderson.

Mr. Robot is rife with social commentary, drama, and suspense. So here are five shows with the same theme or general style as Mr. Robot that fans of the series will love.

Orphan Black

‘Orphan Black.’

If you are interested in a show where one actor plays multiple characters, look no further than Orphan Black. The Canadian BBC America series tells the story of Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany), a woman who discovers that there are others who look strikingly similar to her – so much so that they are clones.

Sarah Manning’s clones band together against Neolution, an organization that wants to take control of human evolution through human cloning. This element of Orphan Black is strikingly similar to the way Elliot becomes Mr. Robot whenever his fight against E-Corp reaches a tipping point.

Like Mr. Robot, Orphan Black is laden with conspiracies, ethical questions, and a boatload of drama.


Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

Imagine Elliot with a few doses of casual arrogance and you’ll end up at Sherlock Holmes. According to Sherlock, he is a “high-functioning sociopath,” which means he is antisocial but also very intelligent.

Elliot and Sherlock are both detectives of sorts. The chief difference between them is technology – Elliot hacks computers while Sherlock observes and deduces. While Elliot is motivated by creating a better, fairer world, Holmes is driven by the satisfaction of solving challenging mysteries. And just as Elliot’s narration and unique direction takes us through his fears and motivations, Sherlock uses impressive cinematography to take us through the complicated mind of Sherlock Holmes.



Mr. Robot is as if someone thought, “what if Dexter were a hacker instead of a serial killer?” Similar to Elliot, Dexter suffers from a serious social disorder and lives by a strict code of ethics. Unlike Elliot, however, he can put on masks and adapt to certain social situations. Both characters’ codes include making society a better place, but unlike Elliot, Dexter’s does not include “do not kill people.”

Fans of the two shows have pointed out similarities between Dexter and Elliot. For instance, both characters keep trophies of their victims. For Dexter, it’s the blood slides, whereas, for Elliot, it’s a digital record of the information he has gathered from his investigation of his victims.

Dexter will provide a blanket of familiarity if you are missing Mr. Robot. Just don’t read about how it ends.

Person of Interest

‘Person of Interest.’

If you are into the hacking and technology themes of Mr. Robot, Person of Interest might interest you. It is a pre-Snowden series about wide-scale government surveillance on American citizens.

Like Mr. Robot, the show tries to present a realistic view of the technology industry. Consequently, it may not come as a surprise when some of the events portrayed in the show started to happen in reality. Admittedly, the science-fiction tone of the series was turned up a few notches after Edward Snowden’s leaks.

Person of Interest is packed with conspiracy theories and discussions about bitcoin, the rise of artificial intelligence and other deeper tech-related philosophical elements; all familiar themes from Mr. Robot.

Black Mirror

Season 3 of ‘Black Mirror.’

Black Mirror is a near-future sci-fi series dealing with the darker sides of technology. Similar to the Twilight Zone, it is an anthology of social commentaries directed towards the pros and cons of the rise of certain technologies. It delves into topics like social status through “likes” and hyper-realistic games that prey on a person’s deepest fears.

The British Netflix series has the same general feel as Mr. Robot, especially in its dark tone and social commentaries. However, there are a few icky episodes; like one where hackers blackmail a political figure to humiliate himself on live television. If you can get through the ickiness, you will find a show, like Mr. Robot, that causes you to reevaluate your life and the world around you.

Dick Gautier, Best Known as Hymie the Robot in Get Smart, Dies at 85

Tony-nominated actor Dick Gautier, known for his role in Bye, Bye Birdie and the hit TV sitcom Get Smart, has reportedly died. He was 85.

Gautier’s daughter Denise told The Hollywood Reporter that her father died Friday night at an assisted living facility in Arcadia, California, after suffering from a longtime illness.

Gautier started his career working as a stand-up comic and he went on to star as Conrad Birdie in the hit 1960 musical Bye, Bye Birdie. His Elvis-inspired role scored him a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.

Another beloved role of Gautier’s was his portrayal of Hymie the robot on the hit 1960s sitcom Get Smart. Portraying Hymie, Gautier quickly became a fan-favorite, despite his few appearances on the show.

In 1989, Gautier returned as Hymie for the TV movie Get Smart Again!, and he lent his voice to several animated shows, including Tom and Jerry and The Addams Family. His latest role was a cameo on Nip/Tuck in 2010.

Samsung Makes Butt Robot With Mom Jeans To Prove Its Phones Don’t Bend

It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not: Samsung has created a big, robotic, mom jean-wearing butt to prove its phone doesn’t bend when a person sits on it.

You know, unlike some of its more prominent competitors.

A video posted to Samsung’s official blog Thursday shows the company’s Galaxy Note 4 phone subjected to a number of tests. But the most important question of all is clear: Can a Samsung phone withstand a giant butt sitting on it a couple hundred times?

Samsung could have used a regular old human for the test, or a boring robot. Instead, it created this robotic-powered rump. To warm up, the phone was subjected to your standard “tap it back” style sit down.

As you can see, so far so good. But could the Samsung withstand a full-on Miley Cyrus powered twerking session?

OK, so maybe it’s not quite that fast in the video. Still, we’re pretty impressed.

Watch the full video, appropriately titled “Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Endures the Gluteus Maximus,” below to see more of Samsung’s test:
