A study by Arizona State University (ASU) researchers estimates there is £8.57 million worth of precious elements in the sewage produced by a million-person city every year. Never think of sewage as stinky worthless waste again.
Forget buying the Porsche or the Ferrari, blowing your life's savings on a bike is the new mid-life crisis milestone. Hence this, the £250k gold-plated road bike for the man who has everything except a gold bike.
How much gold would you have if you stole every bit that's ever been mined? Not much—you'd be able to make a cube of solid gold with 60-foot sides. There just isn't that much gold in the world, and it's getting harder and harder to find it. In fact, our love of gadgets may be part of the problem.
LG has released some new stats and images regarding its G Watch wearable, revealing that you'll be able to buy a "champagne gold" model if you must, plus this and the generic black unit will both be water and dust resistant. Ideal if you regularly operate a lathe or work mending boats and need Google to constantly tell you what's on at the cinema. [LG via Droid-Life]
