ICYMI: Robots so advanced, they cool themselves with sweat

Today on In Case You Missed It: Researchers from the University of Tokyo devised a better air cooling system for robots that is modeled on their as-yet-overlords, sweaty humans. The 3D-printed bones have spaces for tiny pores, allowing Kengoro to do pushups for 11 minutes without overheating. Next up, world domination.

Meanwhile MIT discovered that spinach plants can be engineered into living sensors that send notifications when they detect pollutants in their water. It's an interesting bit of engineering with plants that they are calling "plant nanobionics," read more about it here.

Finally the NASA video is here while the poor schlub who got punked by his friends as Woody from Toy Story is here. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
