The architectural plans for Osama Bin Laden's house

We've seen the photos, now you can view the plans for the world's most wanted man's house. Andrew Buncombe from the Independent, has dug up the actual plans filed with the local authorities in 2004 for the construction of Osama bin Laden's hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Buncombe reports: "A file held by the local authorities in the town shows that plans for the “pucca” (or proper) house were filed in the summer of 2004 by the man known as Arshad Khan, who is thought to have been Bin Laden’s courier. His ID card, Number CH 9613-753-20, believed to be fake, gives a date of birth as 09/06/1977. It is though the house was completed by September 2005, raising doubts about some reports claiming the property was raided by the Pakistanis in 2003. The file also shows that the occupants never paid any property tax, and that the completed building breached several guidelines."

Japanese scientists invent kissing transmission machine

Scientists in Japan have invented a "kissing machine" that electronically transmits a kiss. "If you take one device in your mouth and turn it with your tongue, the other device turns in the same way," researcher Nobuhiro Takahashi said. "If you turn it back the other way, then your partner's turns back the same way, so your partner's device turns whichever way your own device turns."

What kind of use can a device like this have? Takahashi: "For example, if you have a popular entertainer use this device and record it, that could be hugely popular if you offer it to fans," he said.

Hey girls, line up for your kiss with Justin Bieber!
