How a Nintendo 64 Pokémon Game Helped Set the Stage for ‘Detective Pikachu’

Those maniacs went ahead and did it. They finally made a life-action Pokémon movie that brings the world of Pikachu, Bulbasaur and even the nightmare-inducing Mr. Mime to life. It’s been 21 years since both the first games, Pokémon Red and Blue, and the anime premiered in the US in September 1998. Since then we’ve got more than a thousand episodes of an anime series, 21 animated movies and over 30 video games, but all of those mostly showed the Pokémon as collectable trophies or the combat...

A $350 toilet powered by worms may be the ingenious future of sanitation that Bill Gates has been dreaming about

Worm toilets require no traditional flushing and aren't hooked up to a sewer system — instead, worms compost human waste. More than 4,000 such "Tiger Toilets" have been installed to date across India, in homes of people who were previously defecating in the open. The worm toilets smell a lot better than a pit latrine, and don't breed mosquitoes either. Here's how a $350 toilet powered by worms could change the world and save lives.  Worms may not have spines, but they're doing some back-break...

Special Feature: A Look at Commercial Hardwood Flooring

For sheer wow factor, nothing beats a broad expanse of glimmering natural wood. Especially in commercial spaces, where the real estate underfoot can seemingly go on for miles, a beautiful hardwood floor can take the breath away, quite literally grounding us to its natural, organic feel, to the way it captures the light and imparts a sense of stillness and calm. This isn’t to say hardwoods aren’t dynamic. Danish brand Junckers, for instance, offers a huge variety of hardwoods—any number of whic...
