Five Things in Five Minutes
Friday 19 October, 2018

This week, create a DIY smartphone, experience homelessness through VR and learn the piano with just your keyboard. Find out more in this week's Five Things in Five Minutes.

1. DIY smartphone kit
A new smartphone kit allows DIY fans to create a phone which calls, sends text messages and allows you to code your own games. The clincher - a custom app that plays only cat videos. 

2. Airport stare-down
New research has found the best way to prevent bird-to-plane collisions: scaring them off with hilarious huge googly eyes projected onto LED screens. 

3. VR on homelessness 
A new virtual reality experience allows users to literally walk in the shoes of the less fortunate - in the hope of developing more compassion towards the homeless. 

4. AI Piano Genie 
Never learned to play the piano? New AI controller Piano Genie lets you create music on using just eight keyboard buttons.

5. Robot funk
A robot has shown off some seriously impressive moves, dancing along to Bruno Mars' hit song Uptown Funk.
