What happens when you start gluing matches together? Because the heads are slightly wider than the wooden bodies, they begin to form a sphere. This was an experiment in how many matches it would take to get all the way around to make a perfect globe. After months of gluing and gluing and gluing we made it to the other side. Then the experiment shifted to see what it would look like when this thing burned.

Here’s a cool video of Boston Dynamics SpotMini quadruped robot opening a door for its SpotMini buddy. Opening a door – while quite a simple move for humans, can be quite a feat for robots. Here we see the first SpotMini end up being helpless at the door (no surprise there), until its buddy shows up with an arm-like attachment to open the door.
