Five Things in Five Minutes
Thursday 16 August, 2018

This week Harley Davidson takes on mindfulness, coffee cups get an organic makeover and tiny, soft robots are changing the future of surgery. Find out more in this week's Five Things in Five Minutes.

1. Motorcycle meditation
Need a mindfulness moment? How does the rumble of a Harley Davidson Milwaukee-Eight engine sound? To mark World Relaxation Day the motorcycle giant has released a guided meditation track featuring only the soothing sounds of a Harley engine.

2. Oh, gourd. Another coffee cup
A new completely organic, biodegradable cup made out of gourds has debuted. The cup is formed as the gourd grows inside a 3D printed mould. 

3. New surgical spider robots  
Researchers have developed new millimetre-sized soft robots that may revolutionise surgeries - starting with one based on the Australian peacock spider.

4. There's Wally!
Stuck trying to find Wally? This new robot can find him for you using Google's new AutoML Vision service.

5. The people have spoken
A  hyper-realistic portrait of actor Guy Pearce, painted by Melbourne artist Anne Middleton, has taken out the 2018 Archibald Prize People’s Choice award.
