How Much Can You Eat On Thanksgiving? [Video]

Well, we’ve recently shared videos on what happens if you eat too much on Thanksgiving, and what to do if you can’t eat everything. But exactly how much can you eat (and what can’t you eat)? With the aid of science, Jake Roper investigates…

Robot Can Sketch Or Paint

Last year a successfully-funded Kickstarter campaign turned the idea of a robot painter into reality. Now WaterColorBot 2.0 is available.

European Politicians: Break Google Up

European politicians have voted to break up Google’s business. The vote has no immediate practical effect but is politically symbolic.

However, with Google used for around 90 […]

Thanksgiving Dinner On The International Space Station

NASA has put out details of what the crew of the ISS will be eating this Thanksgiving: it’s a traditional meal but with some very unconventional preparation methods: Their menu will include traditional holiday fare with a space-food flair — irradiated smoked turkey, thermostabilized candied yams and freeze-dried green beans and mushrooms. The meal also […]
