Geeks will appreciate the new humanoid robot who has taken a bunk on the International Space Station.
…this is the first humanoid robot that will "live" and work inside with the astronauts. Dubbed Robonaut 2, or R2, …the module will become a permanent fixture on the space station, giving astronauts living there more storage room.
While some folks wonder if robots will eventually take over their jobs, we're certain they are taking over your humdrum cupcake molds. (Zing! How's that for a segue?) For your enjoyment, a Yumbots round-up from planet Earth. Adam from Los Angeles gets an A+ on photography, a B+ on his mad baking skillz, and a C– on that frosting. (Tip: add a skosh more powdered sugar. Unless it actually was tarter sauce, in which case, carry on.) Getting hungry. Super cool retro-effect image we found here but heck if we know whom to credit. Stomach growling… Caren from tea & chickadees doesn't mess around. Would you look at the mug on that thing?! Adorable. Be sure to check out her full Yumbots exposé. Mouth watering… This might be my favorite of the group. Kotomi over at Bake Greek pipes out some heavenly frosting. And the 'bots look like they're about to Do the Hustle right off the counter! Do doo do da doo da doo doo doooo… Thanks for tuning in! And if you're in Chicago next week, don't forget to visit us at the IHA!
