Would You Become Something You Eat Most? Elysia chlorotica, The First Animal-Plant Hybrid Creator

Would You Become Something You Eat Most? It sounds like a silly question, but apparently, the brilliant emerald green sea slug, Elysia chlorotica, manages to do that. Although this green little guy does have a lot in common with the green leaves, they are totally different from their nature. And according to some scientist, “There is no way on earth that genes from an alga should work inside an animal cell.” But in fact, it seems like the green sea slug has hijacked enough plant genes to become the first animal who is able to produce chlorophyll just like a plant – rely on sunshine for its nutrition. It still a complete mystery how it manages to do that, but it won’t stop making this little emerald animal a super star – who is known as the only example of functional gene transfer from one multi-cellular species to another. Such an amazing world!

Mouthwatering Sushi Donut

Follow the footsteps of other viral culinary cross-breeds like sushi burrito, sushi Berger, sushi donut is a new creation and didn’t get popular yet. According to the description, to make a donut like this, you need first to grease donut mould with coconut oil and add cooled sushi rice, then decorate the donut with black sesame, ginger, wasabi, cashew mayo and avocado. Of course, we only list a few options here, you can add more sushi items as you want. One bad thing is you have nowhere to buy the donut yet, it only existed in someone’s private kitchen. But I am pretty sure, we will see them sooner or later when those images got popular.

Eclipse Eyewear: The Most Unconventional Eyewear You Might Have Seen

Designed by XYZ Integrated Architecture (oh, that is the reason for the complex structure of the glasses), the Eclipse Eyewear makes a far-out fashion statement of the maximalist kind! Made of lightweight multilayered plastic frames and paracord only, you won’t find any nose pieces or rigid frames on the design, which makes it super flexible. Its futuristic design will definitely making anyone who wears it be the focus. However, I am quite worried about how stable it performs during movement. Or they are just good for walking and standing.
