Romo, shown in the video, reminds me of the Tamagotchi from the 90s. Some may spend countless hours with them. Hobbyists can spend time playing, write apps for this, and connect & control the robot remotely. These mini robots are just good fun for the kids and family, and not expensive. Well… other than that you do need an iPhone or iPod touch.

Yet another nicely done TED presentation, which show animations of biology and DNA. Check it out!  I wish they have the long version that walkthrough all the animations and explain how things work.

We have no ways to directly observe molecules and what they do — Drew Berry wants to change that. At TEDxSydney he shows his scientifically accurate (and entertaining!) animations that help researchers see unseeable processes within our own cells.
