This Breakfast-Making Machine Is The Best Thing Ever.

One of my favorite movies growing up was 'Peewee's Big Adventure' - which, compared to its contemporary kids' movie equivalents, was quite the acid trip.
One of the best scenes toward the beginning was when Peewee was getting ready for his day. He'd pick out one of his usual trademark suits and head down into the kitchen, where this very quirky Rube Goldberg machine would fix him his breakfast.

However, I never thought it would be real someday.

It took inventors Peter Browne and Mervyn Huggett over 1,000 hours to build, but the machine isn't even FOR them - it's actually for their wives!

The machine, while definitely not as compact as other modern machinery, has a number of incredibly cool features, including:

A toaster that will toast your sliced bread nice and evenly.

A hot kettle that will not only pour tea or coffee, but brew it too!

A beaker of boiling water that cooks eggs to a perfect soft boil.

It also shoots out the morning newspaper and presents the cup of tea or coffee, boiled egg, and toast directly to the person about to enjoy their breakfast.
Check out Peter's walk-through of this super amusing breakfast machine by clicking the embedded video clip above, and then let me know:

If you were an inventor, what kind of machine would you build?

Personally, I could use a machine that will help me get ready and out the door in the morning - maybe something with an iron, ironing board, blowdryer, flatiron, brush, and full make-up set all in one?
Anyway, comment below with your thoughts, and for more strange tech news, follow my Weird Science collection!

THE SOCK FINDER
@danidee It's probably clear, that these guys have too much free time on their hands..... they could have washed my car, and do my laundry, p.s. wich i already have a machine for...... can someone hook me up with them??? i see potential
I would build a machine that would take me safely to and from work/school while I take a nap.
This breakfast machine wouldn't work for me, as I eat different style of breakfast every morning: toast, oats, pancakes, omelets, steam buns, Japanese style brekky...etc, I get bored very quickly! If I'm gonna invent something, definitely sonic shower! like the one from star trek, you walk in fully clothed and walk out completely cleaned and refreshed! No undress, no water wastage and only takes 10 secs! That's like my dream come true!
I would like the Jetson's shower and get ready conveyor thing.

The future of smart technologies: what will the world look like?
The future is here and it’s smart. Technological advancements are becoming smarter and more intuitive every day, helping us in ways that weren’t previously possible. However, with each new innovation come new concerns about how these technologies will affect the world around us. What does the future of smart technologies look like? What are the concerns about smart technology? Let’s take a look at some of the most important issues that have arisen out of this shift towards an increased reliance on smart technologies in our daily lives. Today's world is dominated by apps It's hard to imagine a time when we didn't have apps to do everything for us. We use them to book our travel, order food, track our fitness, and stay in touch with our loved ones. It's no wonder that app development is one of the most in-demand skills today. But what does the future hold for apps? Intelligent home devices are growing rapidly Homeowners are increasingly looking for ways to make their homes more comfortable, efficient, and secure. Smart technology is one way to achieve these goals. The global market for intelligent home devices is expected to grow from $24.1 billion in 2019 to $53.45 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2%. This rapid growth is being driven by a number of factors, including the declining cost of sensors and other components, the increasing availability of high-speed broadband Internet, and the growing popularity of smart home applications such as energy management, security, and entertainment. The growing popularity of wearables The popularity of wearable devices has been on the rise in recent years. There are many reasons for this, but one of the main ones is that they offer a lot of potential benefits. For example, they can help you stay connected to your loved ones, track your fitness goals, and even monitor your health. With all of these benefits, it's no wonder that more and more people are interested in wearables. How virtual reality works VR is a technology that allows users to interact with a computer-generated environment. The user wears a headset that covers their eyes and ears, and this headset is connected to a computer. The computer generates images and sounds that give the user the sensation of being in another place. VR can be used for gaming, education, training, and more. Where AI can help humanity Imagine a future where your car can drive itself, you can have a conversation with your computer, and your fridge can order groceries for you. This is the future of smart technologies, and it's not as far off as you might think. With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), we are on the cusp of creating a world that is more convenient, efficient, and safe. Here are some ways AI can help humanity Driverless cars are coming soon! In just a few years, we may see a dramatic shift in how we get around. With autonomous, or driverless, cars set to hit our roads, it's not hard to imagine a future where we no longer need to own or operate our own vehicles. These cars will be able to communicate with each other and make split-second decisions to avoid accidents. They'll be more fuel-efficient and better for the environment. And, perhaps most importantly, they'll free up our time so we can do other things while we're on the go. So what does this all mean for the future of transportation? It's hard to say for sure, but one thing is certain: things are about to change - and change fast!

YouTuber Films Suicide Victim, Doesn't Get Why His Jokes Arent Funny
[tw: mentions suicide] This is Logan Paul, YouTuber and brother of Jake Paul and equally influential YouTuber. He has over 15 million subscribers and makes videos about pranks, extreme sports, and basically living off of all the money he makes. Most of his fans are under the age of 17. He has been posting a video every single day for over a year and plenty have been controversial (one of his most successful videos is when he reacts to seeing color for the first time, but then he later admitted that he lied about being color blind) This week though, even his fans have said he has gone too far. He is currently in Japan and making videos about his trip, but he and his friends headed to Aokigahara, also known as Japan's suicide forest. It's the most popular place to tortured people to end their lives. It is known for its beauty so people do go there just to see the nature, but they went into the restricted section. They go on a visit to the forest intending to focus on the "haunted" aspect of it, he says in the video. After walking a short distance into the forest, the group come across a body. The group is filmed approaching the body, which is shown in several close-ups where only the face is blurred out. A member of the group is heard off camera saying he "doesn't feel good". Paul then asks him: "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?" He then laughs. He then took the time to pose with the man (who is revealed to have just died a few hours before due to the color of his body) in order to get the perfect thumbnail and then posted it on his channel. This is literally what the thumbnail image was: It got over 6 million views. Later in the video they joked that YouTube wouldn't put ads on a video with a dead guy so they might as well take sake shots too (YT has a new strict algorithm about what kind of content can make money and obviously suicide isnt one of them) After the video got a ton of criticism, he took the video down and issued this half ass apology: He later posted a video apology but come on. This is just disgusting. I am so sorry to the family of that victim and to anyone who has been affected by suicide. There is NO excuse for what he did. If it was a live stream and an accident I could understand if he was overwhelmed, forgot to turn the camera off, etc. But this was filmed, edited, and uploaded. He zoomed in and took from different angles. He posed for pictures with the body. He is trash. If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please visit https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ for a way out of depression.
Will Robots Steal Our Jobs?
So, I just read a staggering statistic that I think the rest of you would be equally WTF?! over. According to a study sponsored by the World Economic Forum, humans will be losing an approximate 5.1 million jobs to robots within the next five years. The study examined 15 different economies across the world, who combined make about 65% of the international workforce. Due to the upward trend of technology and service-oriented robotics, about 7 million jobs will be lost. However, 2 million will be gained due to the progress of technology in these different nations. As of right now, robots and machinery have begun taking over more general jobs, like cashiers. However, as they become more and more widespread, the World Economic Forum believes that these robots will become smarter and more specialized. "As entire industries adjust, most occupations are undergoing a fundamental transformation. While some jobs are threatened by redundancy and others grow rapidly, existing jobs are also going through a change in the skill sets required to do them." A Business Insider report backed up study, adding that the jobs they believe are most at risk are ones involving data entry or more clerical-style operations, including pharmacists, lawyers and paralegals, drivers, astronauts, store clerks, soldiers, babysitters, rescuers, and sportswriters. (The idea of astronauts being replaced by robots is seriously depressing to me. Space travel is so exciting because humans are doing it!) CNN also cited a Bank of America sponsored study that added more jobs to the list: bakers, butchers, tour guides, tax collectors, telemarketers, insurance sales agents, retail salespeople, clerks, accountants, and pharmacy technicians. It also added that the manufacturing industry will see a huge boom in robot workforce, increasing 35% by 2025. "To prevent a worst-case scenario – technological change accompanied by talent shortages, mass unemployment and growing inequality – reskilling and upskilling of today's workers will be critical. It is simply not possible to weather the current technological revolution by waiting for the next generation's workforce to become better prepared." The good news is that there are still plenty of jobs that are pretty unlikely to be replaced by robots any time soon. Anything involving the arts, empathy, or intuition - such as social work, teaching, or police work - require a type of human interaction that robots just can't replicate. (So next time you're teased about your 'worthless' liberal arts degree, feel free to let them know about the impending robot revolution.) So what do you guys think? Are robots really going to be taking over so much so quickly? Do you think the government should have any say over how much robotics is used? Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow the WTF Street Journal collection.
Trash by the Numbers: Shocking US Garbage Statistics
We don't have to live with our garbage, which is one of the best things about the modern sanitation system. The drawback of the modern sanitation system is that it frees us from living around trash. In my rebellious youth, I used to (half-jokingly) argue that littering ought to be encouraged so that everyone could see how much garbage we produce—if we had to live with it, we'd indeed create less, right? However, because of our excellent sanitation, we can build an endless amount of garbage, which is then magically removed to make room for new litter. That's development! (I realize that maintaining good sanitation is necessary to combat disease and squalor, but you get my point.) We all know there's a lot of trash going on around here, I'm pretty sure of that. The figures, however, really drive the point home. To do that, SaveOnEnergy put together a report examining landfills and their statistics. 1 Here are a few sobering facts that had me thinking, "Wow, littering should be promoted!" (Actually, don't kill me in the comments; I promise.) In any case, look. The daily average amount of trash produced by each American is 4.4 pounds. It would be the height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa if packed in cubed feet. The annual trash production of Americans is 254 million tons. Every year, 22 billion plastic bottles are discarded. 12 feet: The height of a wall that could be constructed every year from office paper waste from Los Angeles to New York City. The number of trips around the equator that 300 disposable forks, spoons, and paper or plastic cups could make each year. There are more than 2,000 active landfills in the nation. The number of inactive landfills in the nation is in the thousands. The average amount of trash in Las Vegas landfills is 38.4 tons. The amount of landfill waste per person in Connecticut, North Dakota, and Idaho is 10 tons or less. United States trash statistics SaveOnEnergy $19: The price per ton Alabama charges to haul away waste from another state. The out-of-state waste that Ohio transports annually for $35 per ton is 3.4 million tons. The percentage of trash from outside Ohio that came from New York was 32%. The percentage of trash that Americans now recycle annually is 34.3 percent. In 2013, 87.2 million tons of material could have been disposed of, thanks to recycling and composting, up from 15 million tons in 1980. 39 million: The amount of automobiles required to remove the 186 million metric tons of carbon dioxide that recycling prevents from being released yearly. which is fantastic and which we ought to pursue more of according to Ola, CEO of Garbage Transport company in Norway! The report, Land of Waste: American Landfills and Waste Production, also includes some fascinating graphics and interactives, such as a map that allows you to view all the information for landfills close to your home and, my personal favorite, a time-lapse that charts the development of landfills in the nation over the past century.
