The subtle ways your phone makes you hate yourself—and what Google is doing about it

What is beauty, anyway? Google hopes its new approach to selfies doesn’t lean so hard into stereotypes.

Smooth skin. Large eyes. A tapered jawline.

These fog-spraying robots kill the coronavirus

Breezy One uses an EPA-registered disinfectant originally developed by Sandia National Laboratories to eliminate 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses.

Every night, after the last plane has landed at the Albuquerque airport, and all the passengers have left the terminal, a robot rolls out of a closet and begins filling the room with fog.
