The RoboChop will let you use an industrial robot arm to build furniture

In March, you’ll be able to control an industrial robot arm directly from a web app. The installation, called RoboChop, will be located at the CeBIT 2015 in Hanover, Germany.

Classic Macs turned into modern furniture

The Apple Power Mac G5 was a classic computer of the early millennium, but for all of its strengths — besides its gorgeous design, it was the fastest Mac in Apple’s lineup when it was released in 2003 — it didn’t last: the G5 family was retired in 2006 for the Mac Pro. The rest is recent history.
