What's caught our eye this week.....

What's caught our eye this week.....

This week on tech, we have artificial tumbleweed.

What for? You might ask...well, it's called the Mine-Kafon and has been created by Afghan designer Massoud Hassani to be blown by the wind across minefields. It sets off anti-personnel devices as it goes. Here's a link to his blog and a video.

Also, in science news a NASA scientist lets slip that something their Curiousity rover has found on Mars could be " for the history books..." but won't say any more. Dr Andrew Curran explains why they're being cautious before revealing all.
