  3. News at Seven -- project to automatically generate news report, complete with Flash-animated news readers and text-to-speech voices. A project from the Intelligent Information Lab at Northwestern University.
  4. Bacteria-Powered Micro-Machines -- A few hundred bacteria are working together in order to turn the gear.
