The research isn’t actually focused on some savant octopus solving the game but rather with which arm they choose to fail.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
