A team of researchers at Heriot-Watt University is developing a swarm of intelligent robots that are designed to help save coral reefs around the world, starting with reefs in Scotland.

Yes this is real! Japanese toilet company TOTO just unveiled the ultimate green motorcycle – and it doesn’t run on gasoline or an electric motor. Instead, TOTO’s “Toilet Bike Neo” runs on biogas that is produced from livestock waste. TOTO—which is not technically a motorcycle producer—created the poo-powered motorcycle topped with a toilet to promote TOTO’s environmental efforts.
