  1. Is There Anything It Can’t Do? Researchers Propose Artificial Muscles Made Of Graphene

    We've seen graphene do some amazing things, but every time we think we've seen the coolest potential application for the wonder-substance, it continues to impress. The latest impressive feat? Researchers at Duke University have taken advantage of one of the things that makes graphene difficult to work with -- the fact that it "crumples" easily -- and turned that quality into a desirable trait that they can control. By running the show as graphene crumples and flattens out, the team could one day use the substance to form artificial muscles that expand and contract on command.

  2. This Tire Will Make Your Head Explode

    This is a movie. Let me say that again: this is a real movie. It has a director, it was put on film, it will presumably be in theaters at some point in the future. This is absolutely real; this is Rubber. Written and directed by Quentin Dupieux, whom the internet may know better as the musician behind this music video, Rubber follows the inexplicable endowment of life to a tire named Robert and can apparently explode people at will. You know, like Scanners. That's just about all you can discern from this enigmatic trailer. A quick trot around the internet turns up little more than a few user reviews and an even more enigmatic plot synopsis. Given the look of the trailer, the set pieces, and the general insanity surrounding the movie, it's clear that the producers are gunning for a cult hit. In this age of Troll 2, and Cowboys and Aliens, does Rubber have what it takes to get the geeky moviegoer dollar? Stay tuned, friends. (via Topless Robot)
