Electric Cars Being ‘Green’-It’s Complicated To Understand How?

Since the first modern electric vehicles (EV) took to the roads in the 2000s, critics have been quick to question the ‘clean’ label attached to them.

The Smallest Remote-Controlled Walking Robot Ever Built

Engineers at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, invented the world’s smallest remote-controlled walking robot, according to research published in the journal Science Robotics.  It’s so small that it can crawl along the edge of a penny. Made of an elastic shape-memory alloy, the crab-shaped robot includes no hardware or electrical components. The research team hopes that its robotic design could be used in the future to perform tasks in extremely confined spaces.
