A while back we featured a robot vehicle that was made to be driven by a parrot. This one’s meant for fishes. Image recognition specialist Studio diip made Fish on Wheels to showcase its prowess in its field.
We have a long wait ahead of us before we can watch the new season of Doctor Who, which is Peter Capaldi’s first season. What do you do while you wait? Well, to pass the time, one fan has created her own 12th Doctor puppet.
