Nima can test food for gluten on the go in just 2 minutes

Domino’s Australia will soon have robots delivering pizzas

It is perhaps a science fiction dream come true. Or a pizza delivery boy's (or girl's) worst nightmare. Domino's Australian outfit has gotten the ball, or in this case robot, rolling on a delivery system that employs self-driving robots to get your meal to your doorstep in time, still warm, and with less costs.

Video: Big Mac withstands molten copper like a boss

People get a kick out of leaving McDonald’s fries and chicken nuggets sitting out for months, marveling at the lack of expected rot and degradation. That’s old news. Molten copper is all the rage right now, and some industrious fellow has been pouring it on various items and recording the resulting fallout.

Joule Wearable Caffeine Patches Review : Better Than Coffee

Joule Wearable Caffeine Patches Review : Better Than Coffee

Over the past several weeks I've been testing out Joule, a system of wearable caffeine patches that administer the drug gradually rather than all at once. With coffee or soda I'd have been getting high and getting low within an hour. The sugar crash happens, I'm back below where I was when I started. What the folks making Joule have suggested is a fix. Not just a short burst of energy, but a lengthened distribution of caffeine through my skin.

Florida set to get its first cupcake ATM

People that know me well know that there is only one thing I like in the world more than cake. And that's a cupcake. After all, you don't have to mess with knives, forks, or even a plate with a cupcake. You just peel that wrapper off and stuff it in your face.

Well one company wants to make sure that you have easy access to this portable treat, without having to make them yourself, or finding an open bakery.

US pizza chain Domino’s has been busy keeping up with tech trends over the last year and incorporating them into ways to place orders.

That was followed up by an "Easy Order" button, reducing the ordering process to a single physical press. And just before the Super Bowl this year, the company introduced support for the Amazon Echo smart speaker. Now Domino’s is moving to the next logical platform: the Apple Watch.

McDonald’s new fries in Japan are covered in chocolate

Japan gets all the fast-food oddities, and McDonald’s latest creation is no exception. In a statement today, McDonald’s Japan introduced its new McChoco Potato, a “twist” on the company’s long-standing potato french fries. This technically makes the side dish a desert, which is great. Not so great is the McChoco's limited release in Japan...for now, at least.
