One Brainy Bean

Pudding BeanQ introduces education into play in an entirely fun and approachable way! This expressive robot allows children to video chat, play games, ask questions, and chat all while learning along the way. Designed to be a companion at home, it can help little ones learn new languages, teach them how to cook, and even help them go to bed. Unlike many other robots, which can be intimidating and even scary, Pudding BeanQ looks and feels more like a pet with its round body and expressive face. It’s shaped like a bean for two reasons. One, because it’s just darn cute. Two, because it aims to help “sprout” a child’s mind and creativity!

The Trump White House’s complete rejection of global warming has us thinking that this whole Mars colonization thing might not be such a bad idea after all! Sci-fi enthusiasts who believe in the planet’s worst case scenario will appreciate this design called Mars Explorer which is all about avoiding our pending extinction!

Created by designer Daniel Chindris, the futuristic Mars Explorer is a single part of a larger expedition force to explore Mars’ tough terrain and collect data on the Red Planet. Designed for mobility, it features multiple heavy-duty tires for traversing the rocky landscape while carrying precious cargo. It’s equipped with sensors for collecting environmental data, tech for mapping, and a system for testing physical matter. Capable of running in spurts of 72 hours autonomously, this all-electric rover is sure to not emit any greenhouses gases so we don’t make the same mistake twice!
