Today’s In Focus over at The Atlantic is ‘Robots at work and play‘, and some of these fall very much into the category of ‘cannot be unseen’:

And I’m pretty sure this is actually from an 80s Arnie film.

Others are very much in the category of ‘I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords’:

In conclusion: robots are cool, actual robots are a bit weird, TARS is totes a badass.

For the wall of fame/shame outside our office we’ve* decided rather than picking a piece of work to display we’ll** each produce a piece specifically to go on the wall which can be anything at all really, it can be work-related or totally random. It can be the piece of work you’d produce given a completely free rein.

For mine I’m going to have some fun with Pink Robot from Electric City, I’m not totally sure where she’s going but here’s where she’s starting.
