A 3D-Printed Squeezable Ping-Pong Ball That Won't Dent

Even if you’ve got the table, some choice paddles, and enough room to play, a game of ping-pong can still be undone if you can’t find a tiny plastic ball that isn’t dented. Table tennis balls are notoriously easy to damage, rendering them useless to play with, which is what inspired Philipp Günther to create the nearly indestructible 3D-printed AirBall.

Magnetic Cello Comes With No Strings Attached

Last year’s laser violin was the first re-imagined stringed instrument that didn’t actually have any strings. And not to be outdone in the orchestra pit of the future, this year it’s the cello’s turn to get a fancy stringless upgrade.

A Rare Trip On The Floating Train Yard Of Hudson Harbor

Moves will share fitness data with Facebook after all

When Facebook bought Moves, the companies swore that they wouldn’t “commingle” data and raise hackles among privacy-minded users. Many took that to mean that Facebook would take a largely hands-off approach to the fitness tracker. However, it now…

Watch a super genius honey badger break out of all kinds of cages

Watch a super genius honey badger break out of all kinds of cages

No matter what you do, you can’t keep this honey badger locked up. It’s a master jail breaker. Lock the gate? It’ll find out how to slide it open. Put it in a deep pit with high walls, it’ll build a rock ramp. Take away the rocks? It’ll use mud or trees to climb out. What a fascinatingly clever little badger. I hope he never stops coming up with crazy plans to free himself.

Apple allegedly teaming up with Shazam for song-identification feature in iOS 8

Come iOS 8, you might soon be able to ask your iPhone what song is playing and get an answer. Apple is reportedly prepping an update to Siri that will enable music identification. Instead of rolling their own music ID software and library, however, Apple is doing as they’ve done with many Siri features and partnering with an existing force in the space — in this case, music ID powerhouse Shazam.
