So it's no surprise that scientists are building robots modeled after creatures from the animal kingdom. Meet Spot, a four-legged robotic dog that can run over terrain, climb stairs and can handle a kick to the ribs without a flinch. Google-owned Boston Dynamics’ robot uses an electrical/hydraulic system and is designed for both indoor and outdoor operation. The Atrias robot is modeled after birds, which are arguably the fastest and most agile two-legged runners in the world. The robot, developed by researchers at the Oregon State University’s Dynamic Robotics Laboratory, has impeccable balance and can withstand kicks, punches and even a barrage of dodge balls.

Optometrist at the FDA, Dr. Bernard Lepri said, “You should never put hydrogen peroxide directly into your eyes or on your contact lenses. It’s also important to follow the solution instructions and disinfecting process, as the neutralizer turns the peroxide into water and oxygen, making it safe to put on your eyes. Since 2010, the FDA has received 73 reports of burning and stinging associated with hydrogen peroxide contact lens solutions, and in many of these cases it was due to user negligence. Reports of side effects from hydrogen peroxide solutions are on the decline as the FDA has implemented that solutions carry stronger warning labels.
