Ruk Digest 7/24

Hello Fellow Rukkers!

2.  Norway Announced Plans To Build A Floating Underwater Tunnel

Wait what?!

That's right, Norway plans to spend a proposed $25 billion dollars to make this a reality. 

If this gets completed, it would cut cross country travel time from 21 hours to less than 11!

And here is my futuristic take on this, imagine if this was a transparent tunnel, where you could explore the underwater while driving from point A to point B. Now that would be super cool. 

3. This Sensor Detects When A Cow Is In Labor And Notifies Via Text

It is attached to a Cow's tail and measures the tail's movement patterns.

Apparently the swinging of the tail in a specific way shows signs of labor contractions.

Still not a-Mooosed?

Moocall, the company behind this claims that on average, the sensor notifies dairy managers within about an hour before a cow gives birth. 

Holy cow!
