Yes, clothing too, at least this is what Sarah Soriano, a new media artist with a love to electrify garments is proposing with the sound reactive Nightgown.
Don’t talk2myShirt but to my nightgown and it will start pulling up it’s hemline. The gown uses the Lilypad Arduino, Flexinol – a shape memory alloy for the lifting of the textile and a microphone to pick up the sound/voice.

Insects have played an important part in the history of human nutrition in Africa, Australia, Asia and the Americas . Hundreds of species have been used as human food. Some of the more important groups include grasshoppers, caterpillars, beetle grubs and (sometimes) adults, winged termites (some of which are very large in the tropics), bee, wasp and ant brood (larvae and pupae) as well as winged ants, cicadas, and a variety of aquatic insects. Ordinarily, insects are not used as emergency food to ward off starvation, but are included as a normal part of the diet throughout the year or when seasonally available. Via [Food-Info.net]
