    Robots can now assemble an IKEA chair in 20 minutes-without fighting
    After years of failed attempts, a research team in Singapore has successfully taught a pair of robots to do something that many humans still can't: build an IKEA chair. The wooden Stefan chair is not the world's first piece of AI-assembled flatpack furniture: Robots at MIT built a simple Lack table in 2013.

    Mummers off Broad: New book of photos documents a decade of wenches
    Not many people have the Mummers on their minds in April, but photographer Andrea Modica is not the typical Mummer photographer. Thursday, she is releasing "January 1," a book of photographs shot over 10 years, one day per year. It features formal, black and white portraits of wenches taken on Two Street immediately after the annual New Year's Day parade.
