Researchers have observed the process of evolution by natural selection at work in robots, by constructing a ‘mother’ robot that can design, build and test its own ‘children’, and then use the results to improve the performance of the next generation, without relying on computer simulation or human intervention.

I went beyond flux and updated my prescription glasses to have a special lens coating that filters out blue light.

The new glasses haven't completely curbed my night owl tendencies (note time of this post) but I do think it has improved the quality of the sleep I get when I finally turn off the lights.
 
Started using f.lux for nighttime brightness and color temperature adjustment. It's awesome. Known about it for years, never tried it until I went full insomniac this past week.

How long until you think there will be a 3D printed android model that has space in it to put a marshmallow so that the white shows through and holds it’s head up like many of the brand images of him already have?
