Micro Tugs
A pair of Stanford University PhD students at the school's Biomimetics and Dexterous Manipulation Lab have developed what they call MicroTugs, or mini bots that use adhesive power similar to what's found on the feet of geckos and ants to pull off incredible feats of strength.

One robot weighing less than a third of an ounce can carry a 2.2-pound weight vertically up a glass wall.
Another robot weighs less than half an ounce, but can drag 2,000 times its own weight on a flat surface.

"This is the equivalent of a human adult dragging a blue whale around on land," the researchers note.

What's even more amazing is that the tests are actually bound by the limits of the actuators in the robots, not the adhesive power of the feet.

The Inari roll was good but I had the Okonomiyaki; easily crappiest I've had. Like a sad little pikelet topped with to much Dashi and Mayo. The Chicken Bao I also had were tasty but were basically cheap burger sliders. Go elsewhere.

Ambience: appears to suffer from being a product of it's own success. Frenetic and Crowded. As others have said stacked with bored stay at home-parents. Terrible layout of counters and tables mean you are boxed in by the line of people waiting to be served. They need to separate dining and display/counter areas desperately. How about the disused book shop area perhaps? Service: I was sitting at a table for nearly 30min waiting for other people to arrive and not ONCE was I approached by staff. Even without full table service this should be a no-no especially given limited seating. Food: Conclusion: If Duchess is; is as others have suggested - trying to be the 'best' then they need to adequately expand their staff/seating/counter options to meet demand whilst still retaining atmosphere. Currently in state of Hipster Deluge overflow.

Drinks are of Crazy crazy proportion. As in show off rediculous, no one can eat that. MURICA size. My taro bubble tea came stacked twice as high as already sizeable mug it was in and required a cup to spoon off top into. Cuisine is ok, comes with Chinese style sides for some dishes (tomato egg, century egg, beans, cabbage). Ma Po Tofu was tasty but they added too much La Gan Ma sauce when I asked for it extra spicy, so it was way too salty.
