Million Short is an experimental search engine that returns more eclectic search results by removing the top million most popular websites from its search. It can also be configured to ignore the top 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000 websites. Million Short was created by Toronto software company Exponential Labs.
The Copenhagen Wheel is a powered pedal assist system that is integrated into a bicycle wheel and can be fitted to most bikes. The battery-operated system can adjust its power assist automatically, based on pedaling effort, or it can be controlled with the companion smartphone app. The system has a maximum range of 30 miles and tops out at 20 MPH. The Copenhagen Wheel was designed by MIT’s SENSEable City Lab and is being built in Cambridge, Massachusetts by Superpedestrian. It is available for pre-order. We recently posted about a similar pedal assist system, the FlyKly Smart Wheel.

And secondly, the upward V formed by the hands makes the watch look like it is smiling. The video was created by Numberphile.

Plant your feet in his warm, plush belly and you become the master of this wicked creature. Now you can keep your toes toasty and strike fear into all those who cross your path.
