Charlie Brinson is trying to reincarnate a 60 million year-old, 50-foot, 1-ton snake called Titanoboa… in robot form.

With the help of dozens of collaborators, the robot snake is now operational, and it’s just missing a few finishing touches. The final product will have a more polished-looking skin and, if all goes well, be able to move underwater.

Eventually, Titanoboa will support a rider, just like its relative, the Mondo Spider, which was built by the same group.

ok but the part where the spider walks past and there actually is a man inside it

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”
