Making Bubble Tea Is Totally Therapeutic

Video: Bubble tea or boba or pearl milk tea or tapioca milk tea or whatever the hell you call the milky tea deliciousness with those chewy balls and that giant straw is deliciousness in a plastic cup.

Use This Jelly Mould To Make A Completely Ineffective Captain America Shield

If you don’t have access to a decent supply of vibranium adamantium alloy, here’s another way to make yourself a 10-inch replica of Captain America’s iconic shield. Just don’t expect it to be able to deflect bullets, stop the Hulk, or even survive being attacked with a plastic disposable spoon.

The Future Will Be Full Of Lab-Grown Meat

In 2013, the world’s first lab-grown burger was unveiled to the world. It carried a $US330,000 price tag, and apparently, it wasn’t all that tasty.

Asimov's Yeast Vats May Be The Real Future Of Food

Isaac Asimov and other classic sci-fi writers envisioned a future in which great vats of yeast or bacteria could feed humanity. We’re not there yet, but today’s startups are using yeast cultures to produce milk, egg whites, and even coffee. And if you’re not sure about yeast-brewed egg whites, you can always try lab-grown cultures of beef, produced by a company whose other line of work is “bioprinted leather.”
