Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

A roboticist from Harvard has built 1,024 quarter-sized robots that can swarm into any shape their creator draws using a computer program he created. The robots receive the pattern wirelessly and then use sensors to scoot around until the shape is replicated.  This video shows the robots in action, but is sped up to convey what actually takes hours to accomplish.

What [feminism] means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are — you can be who you want to be, whether you’re a man, a woman, a boy, a girl, whatever, However you want to define yourself, you can do that and should be able to do that, and no category ever really describes a person because every person is unique.

Get to Know Meme [5/10] FriendshipsAmy Poehler and Seth Meyers

Seth and Amy: An awesome friendship.
