last monday I spent around 7 hours lettering this massive 4 by 12 ft chalkboard. we had to vertically lower it down the gap in the stairwell to get it down from the second floor to the first - because it didn’t fit in the elevators, stairs, etc. 
I did a timelapse of myself drawing the lettered part in the center and the sides are written in Gotham (or what is supposed to resemble Gotham). I had chalk in my eyeballs for the days following but. worth it. !!

So Honey Maid decided to make a video specifically for disgruntled groups such as these, putting to all those vitriolic letters to good use.

Engineering Company Festo Is Creating Robots Based On Nature

German engineering firm Festo is creating a robot army. Sounds scary, right? But there’s no need to fear a “Skynet”-type apocalypse quite yet, because these robots want to do good by making laborious tasks easier in the factories of the future. And they’re using nature as their inspiration.

Festo summarizes the motivation behind their research on their website: “Gripping, moving, controlling and measuring – nature performs all of these tasks instinctively, easily and efficiently. What could be more logical than to examine these natural phenomena and learn from them?”
