Drive Legs is a portable hard drive which stands up if liquid is spilled near it. Created by James Chambers, who is experimenting with giving products defense mechanisms to maintain their functioning within the unpredictable reality of everyday use. We also like his sneezing Gesundheid radio.

My favorite part is how someone has to push it upright as it won't function on its own. It may need a little more work...

@greg
Yeah just what I was thinking, nice idea though.
Reminds me of the BigDog DARPA development that won't fall over, or the Mercedes cars that don't want to crash.

And then it stops functioning from the impact of the "dismount" :p

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
