We are starting a new “Tech Sunday” series, in which we will compile a list of interesting collections of technological stuff, innovation, news etc. These will hardly be text story, but photos and videos most of the time with just enough description to give you a basic idea. So here we go.

This sweating prevents the electric motors from heating up and they can perform more efficiently doing tough jobs like push ups.
