  • Potentially clean your house in the future with this robot flies concept

  • And if you need a caffeine boost just let it absorb through your skin with Sprayable

  • Energy.

  • Vsauce! Kevin here. This is Mind Blow.

  • Two baby rabbits were successfully born glowing fluorescent green. Researchers at the University

  • of Hawaii injected a naturally glowing jellyfish protein into embryos in a pregnant rabbit

  • - two of the baby ended up carrying the gene. The point is to be able to eventually make

  • rabbits that produce medicine in their milk and the green glow allows researchers to see

  • which animals have gotten the specific gene.

  • Researchers at the University of Tokyo are working on creating electronic skin. They've

  • been developing flexible electronic mesh to wrap around robot hands for over a decade

  • and now they're bringing it to humans. The e-skin can bend, stretch and twist and is

  • 10 times thinner than kitchen plastic wrap. Right now it can be used to monitor vital

  • signs but eventually could be used to make humans hyperaware or communicate simply with

  • our skin.

  • The University of Washington meanwhile have achieved a breakthrough in direct brain-to-brain

  • communication. A professor linked to another used his thoughts to control the other's actions

  •  - making the linked professor involuntarily move his hand and press a space bar to play

  • a computer game. And while basic hand movement is simple it opens the door to exploring the

  • possibilities of sending more advanced brain signals to each other.

  • Researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology in Vienna, Austria have grown

  • a 3D tiny human brain. The mini three dimensional brain models were grown using stem cells and

  • include parts of the cortex, hippocampus and retinas. And right now they're using these

  • to study early fetal brain development but hope to eventually grow larger brains to provide

  • insights into conditions such as schizophrenia and autism.

  • It turns out seahorses have squishable armor to help protect them from being crushed by

  • predators and researchers at the University of California, San Diego are building a robotic

  • arm from 3D printed plates mimicking this compressible design. So yeah.

  • The Uji is a new shower head that makes you aware of how long you've been in the shower.

  • So far they've noticed a 12% decrease in shower time and say that the $50 shower head will

  • pay for itself within 7 months. It works by turning from green to red after 7 minutes

  • and the hope is that people are out of the shower by minute 8.

  • The Sesame Ring looks to simplify paying for public transportation by wearing your pass

  • on your finger. The rings are 3D printed and come in a variety of colors and while it's

  • designed to work in Boston right now they're looking to bring this worldwide.

  • Yeah, I'll be right there just let me fold up my Korean armadillo car.

  • Pocket space craft is giving you the ability to send yourself into outer space - in a way.

  • You can upload a picture and a personalized message to your spacecraft that's smaller

  • than a CD and as thin as a piece of paper. - which will then be launched with along with

  • thousands of others into space. Check out the website for more.

  • Architect Shigeru Ban made a $6 Million cathedral out of cardboard tubes. Even though it's made

  • out of cardboard it is more structurally sound than the previous cathedral that was lost

  • in an earthquake. The structure is called the Transitional Cathedral and is also apparently

  • fireproof and waterproof

  • Bumpy Photo will turn standard 2D photos into 3D sculptures. The photos can be made as small

  • as 1" or as large as 15" and all you have to do it upload a picture of your choice to

  • the website, wait for the conversion and production and then have it sent to your doorstep.

  • Finally, youtuber Vaecon used the Oculus Rift virtual reality system, a harness to hang

  • 15 feet off the ground and skydiving software to create a virtual skydiving demo.

  • I'm gonna leave you with robots laying out slot-car track - seriously this is awesome

  • - and as always - thanks for watching.
