The conception of Moss FM.

The result of our research and experimentation is Moss FM - the World’s first plant-powered radio. It is also the first time Photo-MFCs have been used to run an object higher powered than an LCD screen. 

Moss FM consists of ten Photo Microbial Fuel Cells, which can be connected in parallel, series, or combination thereof, depending on the performance of each single cell. 

Designed by Fabienne Felder, 2013 in collaboration with Dr. Paolo Bombelli and Ross Dennis of the University of Cambridge.

Nothing, literally nothing could make me laugh harder than this did.

It’s so much better than you expect it to be.

FUCK

Lolling… :)

babies are naturally able to swim hello they just spent nine moths in amiotic fluid this is instinctive so no, parent is not shitty, parent is re-enforcing baby’s natural instinctive behaviour.

parent is good for doing this because parent is basically saying “yes the behaviours you were born with are great!”

Yup, if babies are ‘taught’ (allowed) to swim before they are six weeks old, they never lose the instincts they were born with that lets them hold their head above water and hold their breath when they need to. SCIENCE, man.

What’s really cool is, humans are the only primates known to have this instinct at birth. Other ape babies would just freak out and drown. So I don’t think it comes from being in amniotic fluid for 9 months (since it’s not like they have room to actually swim in there). It’s been speculated that humans evolved in the ocean at some point, which is a really cool theory that I recommend checking out.

Also, SWIMMING BABY IS ADORABLE.

For those who wish to know more, it’s called the Aquatic Ape Hypothesis. I personally think it’s an awesome idea and could possibly explain a lot of the peculiar differences between human anatomy and the anatomy of other primates. Many mainstream biologists have been sceptical about it, but that’s how science works… Personally I think it could become mainstream someday.

"Exocoetidae, commonly called Flying Fish, is a family of fishes aptly named for their ability to emerge out of the water and glide for long distances with their outstretched pectoral fins. Their streamlined torpedo shape helps them gather enough underwater speed to break the surface, and their large, wing-like fins get them airborne. Once in the air, these fishes can glide over considerable distances. Their flights are typically around 50 meters, but some fishes have been recorded to fly up to 200 meters or more. Some species of flying fish have enlarged pelvic fins as well as enlarged pectoral fins, which allows them to fly further than two winged gliders (up to 400 meters), and have far greater maneuverability. These fishes are known as four-winged flying fish."
