Yup, you can now eat recycled plastic just like worms!
Designer Eleonora Ortolani is making waves with her final-year project at Central Saint Martins. Claiming a groundbreaking feat, she's whipped up what she believes is the first-ever food created from plastic waste.
The idea came from wax worms, which were recently found to be able to digest plastic bags. So if worms could do it, why not humans?
Studying in the Material Futures master's program, Ortolani teamed up with scientists to transform a bit of plastic into vanillin, the yummy flavour found in vanilla.
And her product was first used to make a delicious looking (emphasis on looking) vanilla ice cream.
Yup, you will now be sold products by really really really ridiculously good looking AI models in China.
China's regulatory nod for Baidu marks a significant stride in AI governance. The approval, grants Baidu the green light to deploy certain AI models to showcase products to their customers in video form.
This development underscores the nation's strategic push to lead in artificial intelligence, with Baidu at the forefront. The regulatory green light not only propels Baidu's capabilities but also signals a broader shift in China's approach to AI oversight.
Yup, scientists turned DNA of a “vampire” into a 3D rendering.
This is John Barber, a 55-year-old farmer with tuberculosis who was accused of being a vampire.
An unmarked grave was found in Griswold, Connecticut. Archaeologists found that the 19th-century man’s femur bones had been removed and crossed over his chest. A common indication of a vampire panic that swept through New England in the 1800s.
Using prediction models and a 3-D image of Barber’s skull, a forensic artist reconstructed Barber’s face.
Why? I have no clue but thanks for the nightmares!
