Digital Lemons to Make Virtual Lemonade

Ever wondered how does the Internet taste like? Lemons, obviously! Scientists at the National University of Singapore succeeded in digitally transmitting the basic look and taste of a freshly poured glass of lemonade to a simple glass of water. It works as follows: use a sensory device to calculate the color and pH levels of the beverage, send these data to a special jug, which then mimics the specifications of the drink with a pulse of electricity. A LED light will make sure your refreshment has the right color tone, cheers!

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
