Back in 1976, they took red M&Ms off the market because some red food dye was found to cause cancer. While those M&Ms couldn’t really kill you, this one might. Adam from North of the Border imagined what it might be like if M&Ms ate people like people eat candy. It’s amazing how creepy you can make stuff by adding teeth.

We’re not sure if we should be amazed by or terrified by Advanced.Farm’s wheeled robot that autonomously harvests apple crops.

The machine can pick roughly 30 apples per minute.

Adam from North of the Border answers another question that nobody was asking: What would a Pikachu look like if it was a real animal.
