Each week our friends at Inhabitat recap the week's most interesting green developments and clean tech news for us -- it's the Week in Green.
This week Inhabitat got set for the holiday season as we officially launched our Green Gift Guide
, which is chock full of 21 categories and over 300 presents - including a great set of DIY projects you can make yourself
and a round-up of our favorite gifts for gadget geeks
. Speaking of high-tech gizmos, we also showcased several amazing examples of cutting-edge robotics as researchers developed a new breed of disaster detecting cyborg insects
and Otherlab created a line of lightweight inflatable robots
that can walk on water. Scientists also successfully completed the first round of trials on a new type of contact lens
that could one day send emails directly to your eyes, and NASA announced that the new Mars Curiosity Science Laboratory
will be powered by nuclear energy instead of solar.
