Chilly Hot Pot

Chinese customers sit inside a restaurant made of ice in Harbin, northeast China's Heilongjiang province December 30,2005. The restaurant covers a space of some 260 square metres, with the eatery completely built with ice brick walls, a vaulted ice dome and ice tables and stools. It becomes an eye-catching highlight of the ongoing Ice and Snow Sculpture Art Exhibition on the Sun Island, a tourism resort north of the Songhua River.

Self Aware Bots?

Meiji University researchers built a robot that can recognize itself in the mirror. This form of mirror image cognition is arguably a step toward self-awareness. In another experiment, one robot representing the "self," imitated another robot, acting as "the other." Signals from the first robot apparently indicated that the first robot "understood" that the other robot was mimicing its behavior.

Giant Jellyfish

Giant, 450lb jellyfish are plaguing the fisheries of China, South Korea and Japan, killing fish, breaking nets, and poisoning the catch. They are 6ft wide and weigh 450lb (200kg), with countless poisonous tentacles, they have drifted across the void to terrorise the people of Japan. Vast armadas of the slimy horrors have cut off the country’s food supply. As soon as one is killed more appear to take its place. In the meantime locals are making the best of it — rather than just complaining about jellyfish they are eating them...

Eat Dog Cat Mouse

Eat Dog Cat Mouse is Kwok Fung Lam’s first short animated film. Commissioned by Channel 4 for this year’s MESH scheme, the three-minute film is a twisted story in the style of a folk tale about revenge and relentless eating. Before Mouse finds a way to the delicious cornfields Cat eats him with dire consequences for the food chain.
