From her early days as a motorcyclist to her work as an architect, the life of Elspeth Beard has been nothing short of inspiring. Her first feat started in 1982 when she took her BMW R60/6 motorbike on a two-year ride across the globe. The trip put her in a category of her own, making her the first Englishwoman to travel across the world on a motorcycle. Not missing a beat, Beard got to work restoring an abandoned water tower, picking up several architectural awards and cementing herself as one of the coolest people on the planet.
It isn't the first Rubik's cube solve by a robot, but it is the fastest. Ben Katz and some pals at MITERS created an electric motor-driven robot that reads, computes and solves a Rubik's cube in less than half a second, beating the old record by nearly half.

Although it might sound like a dream, living on coffee alone is not so wise. There are some positives like reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes and some cancers, but that's just with regular consumption. Like two or three cups a day. Going on an all-coffee diet leads to excess amounts of caffeine and causes headaches, nausea, restlessness and muscle spasms. Overdosing on it can even lead to more series problems like comas, trouble breathing, and cardiac arrest. So go ahead, enjoy your espressos and americanos. Just remember to keep it in moderation.
