 China's realistic talking robot
The state of robotics is seemingly moving at warp speed these days. Not only do we have Google's Boston Dynamics division churning out increasingly adept, capable and nimble robots, we're also seeing a discernible improvement in the likeness robots bear to humans.The most recent example of this comes to us via China where university researchers recently unveiled a realistic robot called Jia Jia. Three years in the making, Jia Jia ostensibly looks like a female adult, complete with facial features that can move (she blinks!), realistic facial expressions and human-like hair. Without question, Jia Jia thankfully helps us forget about that eerie looking Scarlett Johansson robot someone built last month.

 Casa San Sen - Mexican Residence
Situated in the middle of the Valle de Bravo forest, San Sen House is a stilt house with a metallic structure incased in wood and glass. The home is surrounded by a lush forest, and is designed with the intention of allowing its inhabitants to enjoy the outdoors as much as the interior. The view is simply impressing. A walk on the terrace, a good conversation over a refined cup of coffee and a striking beautiful view over the lush vegetation, surrounding the house – this is paradise!
