The above video from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology highlights a “particle robotics system,” which consists of many smaller robots working together to accomplish goals.
On March 16, 2019, a peculiar exchange occurred between air traffic control and the pilot of Mercy Air 21, a medical helicopter (an Agusta A109, to be exact) flying just west of Las Vegas, Nevada. The pilot reported seeing an unidentified object.
A very curious video has arrived out of Turkey showing a man nearly meeting his fate, only to be saved in the strangest way by a mysterious passerby.
The first known appearance of the ghost at Stow Lake was reported in the January 6, 1908 issue of the San Francisco Chronicle, right on the front page.

Synesthesia is a fascinating phenomenon of the mind, occurring when multiple senses seemingly “join” together. One of the more common forms is grapheme-color synesthesia, in which people see letters and numbers as having their own colors. For example, a person may see the number one as red, or seven as oddly chartreuse.
Neuroengineers at Columbia University have successfully converted human neural activity into synthesized speech. Led by Dr. Nima Mesgarani, their method involved training a deep-learning algorithm to interpret and synthesize the neural patterns of test subjects. Doing so, they were able to “reconstruct the words a person hears with unprecedented clarity.”
