When it comes to finding intimacy in the digital age, the same tools that seem to make it easier than ever to connect with other humans are wont to leave users isolated and alone, remotely tethered to an app or website that provides the thrilling immediacy of intimacy or companionship, but is not ultimately sustainable.
The sexbot industry is another story altogether. Realbotix , a company that launched the world’s first interactive female sex bot last year, now plans to introduce a male counterpart—with a bionic penis to boot. It goes without saying that this brings new meaning to the term “hardware.”
Last year’s release of the female sex bot, Harmony , was an industry disruptor for its ability to imitate […]
If you’re worried about your risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA), then you may want to take a look at your breakfast routine.
A new study has discovered that a fibre-rich diet can reduce bone damage in the painful, progressive disease.
In particular, researchers recommended eating muesli every morning as well as enough fruit and vegetables throughout the day.
They found in experiments on mice that fibre boosts a molecule produced by bacteria in the gut, which play an important role in the health of joints and bones.Study leader Dr Mario Zaiss from Germany’s Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) said: ‘We were able to show that a bacteria-friendly diet has an anti-inflammatory effect, as well as a positive effect on bone density. A new […]
Buy Photo Grain bowls, salads, avocado toast. Diners’ choices have been growing when it comes to vegetarian, vegan and whole-foods meals, especially with the opening of more quick and casual restaurants with a health focus.
But finer-dining restaurants pay attention to vegetable-focused plates these days, too. Some cater to diners’ special diets by categorizing dishes on menus (such as “animal” and “vegetable,” or “root to leaf” and “nose to tail”) and noting which dishes are vegetarian or vegan, dairy-free or gluten-free. You’ll see it at restaurants such as Braise in Walker’s Point, Odd Duck in Bay View and Wolf Peach in Brewers Hill.
Casual restaurants, too, are including a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes on their menus, such as Cafe […]
Protein is the powerhouse behind your gains. When you lift heavy, protein repairs the tiny tears that strength training creates in your tissues, which helps your muscles grow bigger, faster. You already know that meat is your friend here: chicken, beef, and fish are all packed with the filling macronutrient.
But what if you prefer tofu over turkey? Or beans over beef?
No sweat, you can absolutely build and maintain a built physique on a vegetarian diet. In fact, a recent Arizona State University study found no difference in measures of strength or endurance — or levels of lean body mass — in vegetarian athletes compared to meat eaters.
The caveat? Because animal-based proteins tend to be higher in the essential amino […]
If I had to sum up the last act of Assassin’s Creed Origins in three words, those three words would be, “Wait, there’s more ?”
Origins is a big game by any measure. Thanks to the smart way the designers snake the story quests down and back up the Nile river, the map feels bigger than it is, and it’s huge to begin with. But it isn’t until the game’s final act that the scale starts to feel a touch absurd.
Once Bayek has freed Faiyum of the Crocodile’s influence, he returns to Aya and Cleopatra in Herakleion, in the northeast corner of the map. The game’s story kicks into overdrive, seemingly hurtling toward its conclusion. We hop between Bayek’s […]

David Hanson envisions a future in which robots powered by artificial intelligence evolve to become "super-intelligent genius machines" that might help solve some of mankind’s most challenging problems.
If only it were as simple as that.
The Texas-born former sculptor at Walt Disney Imagineering and his Hong Kong-based startup Hanson Robotics are combining AI with southern China’s expertise in toy design, electronics and manufacturing to craft humanoid "social robots" with faces designed to be lifelike and appealing enough to win trust from humans who interact with them.Hanson, 49, […]
