Here's where CNET tumbles product reviews and cool tech and science news, photos, and videos. And must-see geek goodness, of course.
This running shoe is made of protocells, a form of synthetic biology that behaves like living cells. In 2050, we might be popping our bio-shoes into a vat of liquid to regenerate overnight.
Another plant-inspired life-sustaining device for humans? Yep. One more and it’s officially a meme.

Shark Week is halfway over, but things IRL are getting weird. Wondering why everyone is talking about a dead shark on Twitter today? It’s because this baby shark was found decomposing on an Astoria-bound NYC subway last night. RIP, little carnivore.
In other shark news, Megalodon isn’t real. And the Internet is pretty angry at Discovery Channel for making it seem like “science” said it was.
Today scientists cooked the first stem-cell-derived hamburger. Sounds gross, but then think about that image at the beginning of “Under the Dome” where the cow gets sheered in half and its blood and guts are oozing out, and remember that’s how real meat basically gets made. So maybe braiding together petri-dish fibers until you get a patty is not so gross after all. I’m actually really excited about this.
