HOT TEA Invites You to Swim Surrounded by Fields of Color

Minnesota-based street artist HOT TEA has a thing for rainbows. When we last covered his work, he’d yarn bombed the walkway on New York’s Williamsburg Bridge. Now he’s been tasked with bringing new life to the swimming pool on Roosevelt Island, but instead of using his normal yarn, he’s (thankfully) transformed the space with incredibly bright gradients of paint. 120 gallons to be exact.

Police Sketches Alongside Actual Mugshots

Can you imagine what it’s like to be a police sketch artist? Trying to listen to a collection of descriptions to illustrate a portrait that will be plastered all over the place in hopes of catching a criminal is no easy task. Considering the fact that most of us could not even describe ourselves in enough detail for an artist to sketch, eye witness reports are not the most reliable. But sometimes the artists really get it right and other times they just don’t. Here is a collection of 20 police sketches paired up with the criminals they were intended to represent.

SNAP: Transform Just About Any Flat Object Into a Table. No Tools Required.

With SNAP you can transform just about any surface or board into a piece of furniture – and it doesn’t require any tools or cause any permanent changes to the surface.

This ‘Lucky’ Iron Fish Can Make You Stronger

It might not look like much, but this small iron fish can save lives. Canadian science graduate Dr. Christopher Charles traveled to Cambodia six years ago, where he discovered that anaemia was a huge public health problem.

Instead of finding children enjoying their youthful years, he found kids who were small and weak, often with slow mental development. Mother’s too were suffering. Tired and having painful headaches, many were unable to work. What these people needed was a healthy dose of iron in their diet – but the standard solution of daily iron tablets was often too expensive, too difficult to put into practice or simply unavailable. That’s when he had an idea.

Millennials Have Officially Taken Over the Workforce

For the first time ever, Millennials make up the largest share of the American workforce, surpassing Generation X. That means that more than one-in-three American workers are between the ages of 18 and 34 in 2015. The news comes according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.

The Millennials recently eclipsed the Baby Boomer generation (born 1946-1964) as those members of the workforce continue to retire. Now as more millennials join the workforce, their numbers are quickly rising.

It seems millennials will soon be running the world. Now, can they save it?

Google Creates Time-Lapse Videos Automatically From Random Pictures on the Internet

Google Says Its Self-Driving Car Is “Ready for the Road”

Google announced their first prototype self-driving car almost a year ago. Now they’ve announced that their little autonomous cars are almost ready for road testing on the familiar streets around Google HQ in Mountain View, California.

The cars have already been cruising the streets at the Google test facilities, and doing it without a steering wheel or human driver, but when the cars hit the real roads sometime this summer they’ll be doing it with safety drivers aboard, along with a removable steering wheel, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal that allow them to take over driving if needed.
