Speaking of extraordinary yoga mats, a bunch of MIT students created the nerdiest disco version we've ever seen, with all the bells and lights and whistles. It's called the "Glow" and it literally glows with LED lights and speaks to you with automated instructions. Pretty neat and tech-tastic MIT, but frankly we're disappointed no one's [...]
