Why anyone would go through the effort to re-engineer their 3D printer into a sandwich machine is beyond sense, until of course you see this baby in action. Obviously it would be faster, easier, cheaper and probably tastier to just make it by hand or just buy a sandwich, but then you wouldn't get to say you have a sandwich machine. In a sense, it's 3D printing a sandwich. Not actually, but definitely sort of!

People Expose The Sexist Assumptions Google Translate Makes

Many languages are gendered, so it's very difficult to be neutral when it comes to translating from English. The default is often male and this can lead to a lot of confusion, and assumptions when learning a new language. However, what people are discovering is that even with languages that are 'un-gendered,' like Finnish, Philipino, and Hungarian, Google Translate will still make certain assumptions about the pronouns.

Many people are very frustrated with how their language is appearing, and how sexist it appears on Google Translate and they're showing off the inconsistencies on Twitter.

People Expose The Sexist Assumptions Google Translate Makes| Thumbnail text - OK I did my own experiment and wrote "She is an engineer. He is beautiful" then swapped the translation back to English. That's mad sexist @Google Ő egy mérnök. Ő gyönyörű. She is an engineer. He is beautiful. Ő egy mérnök. Ő gyönyörű. He is an engineer. She is beautiful. Bekreftet

A lot can happen in 9 seconds. In what looks like an excavator and Jeep swerving to avoid each other, they manage to swerve back into each other, preventing a direct hit to that guy with a bike.

We've seen deer stuck in fences and ditches, but this deer that got trapped in a great big mud hole and the solution required some mechanical expertise. It's always cool to see such precision and care taken into consideration by someone operating heavy machinery.

This guy manages to turn pieces of trees into everyday objects. In this case, we get to watch a piece of a tree be transformed into a coffee mug. Pretty cool.

Someone Made An AI Powered Machine Out Of Lego That Sorts Lego (GIFs)

Remember that big box of Lego you had as a child that was filled with hundreds of different styles of Lego and twenty Lego men and women from Darth Vader to scuba divers? Trying to sort those boxes would have been impossible. That's probably what Daniel West experienced before he built his Universal Lego Sorting Machine from Lego. It uses artificial intelligence to sort the Lego pieces and we all want one for our ahem nieces and nephews.

This Woman Makes Hilarious Sh*tty Robots (8 GIFs)

We all know that there's high comedic value in fails. Especially when the things that are failing are not meant to fail... like robots. Simone Gietrz makes robots that have potential but were never really meant to succeed, and watching Simone "use" them will make you laugh harder than anything else you have seen today. Promise. You should probably just watch all of her hilarious videos on her YouTube channel. If you like to watch things exploding, check out NASA's test megarocket fuel tank exploding with liquid nitrogen. It's pretty cool.
