Driverless Cars Will Enable the Blind to Drive
Three states have already legalized the use of driverless cars, Nevada, Florida and California.
Here in the District of Columbia, legalization is currently in the works.
This technology is relatively new, but the benefits are huge for people with disabilities.
Imagine going through life having to be dependent on others to drive you around?
Driverless cars are a huge step towards giving these individuals the freedom of their own transportation.
I can't wait to see them here in DC!

London based artist, Angeli Patel, designed these neat animal shaped puzzles with a unique twist.
Underneath each puzzle piece there is an undesirable fact about the meat industry.

When you check into the "hotel", your luggage is placed in a locker and you are provided a yukata gown and slippers to sleep in.
Most of these capsules have WiFi and a television for your entertainment.
Renting a capsule can cost anywhere from $25-$50 per night.
