In the Iron Man movies, Robert Downey Jr.’s character Tony Stark invents a suit of armor to battle the bad guys. Albert Manero is not one of them. He invented a bionic arm for children, and now produces and distributes them free of charge through his organization Limbitless Solutions. Recently, the two teamed up with Microsoft OneNote to surprise one surprisingly well-dressed young man.This awesome video is part of The Collective Project, an effo...

One has straight, ginger hair, a fair complexion and deep blue eyes - the other has masses of curls, darker skin and her eyes are brown. But what connects these two girls? Watch the video to find out... Catch up on Good Morning Britain with ITV Player

Anger is not the most pratical way ever to get things accomplish. Take for instance this guy. If we would have just reversed his way back onto the road in the first attempt he would not be such a disgusting person to everybody who passes by. #AngerSolvesNothing

Today in History: First practical electronic computer was dedicated, 1946
On February 15, 1946 — 70 years ago today — the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania dedicated the ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer), the first large-scale general-purpose electronic computer. The computer was “Turing-complete” and could be reprogrammed to solve many numerical problems. It was designed to be a “giant brain,” at least according to the press at the time — specifically to calculate artillery firing tables for the U.S. Army. Writing about the U.S. Army’s Ballistic Research Laboratory’s use of the ENIAC, Martin H. Weik commented, “By today's standards for electronic computers the ENIAC was a grotesque monster. Its thirty separate units, plus power supply and forced-air cooling, weighed over thirty tons. Its 19,000 vacuum tubes, 1,500 relays, and hundreds of thousands of resistors, capacitors, and inductors consumed almost 200 kilowatts of electrical power. But ENIAC was the prototype from which most other modern computers evolved. It embodied almost all the components and concepts of today's high- speed, electronic digital computers.”

A 1946 newsreel (prepared for movie theatre goers prior to the main attraction) about the dedication of the ENIAC included these remarks:
Are people becoming obsolete? The giant electronic brain has started cogitating at the University of Pennsylvania. It’s made of vacuum tubes like your radio, and it can add up a column of figures a yard long in a second. It’s the world’s first electronic computer. Right now, it’s solving mathematical problems for the U.S. Army, but — who knows? — someday a machine like this may check up on your income tax.
