TWTWTW: NASA drops a clanger

That Was The Week That Was

More gems from the interweb

Well, it’s that time of the week again.OK The exciting highlight of the week for me was the Open Hardware Summit, but i’m still wading through the presentations. I’ll be posting some thoughts on the event of the next few weeks (yes, I know it’s not exactly timely, but I won’t bore you with my excuses.)

This week there’s some cycling design porn, a little social TV some more maker stuff and a generous dollop of meeja news.  Without more further ado, let me unveil my first story.

Triathlete bot

This cute robot is to take part in a triathlon – & video of it in action  – I would bet it might fetch up on a few toy store shelves just before Christmas

Meeja News

This was a week which involved an attempt to place  Norwich at the forefront of Local TV . My take on Local TV is here

And despite comments to the contrary, this type of innovation could make local TV pay its way

Oh, and Google have been busy too. Mashable report YouTube Introduces Video Editing Feature –  while the Big G is about to launch a new service targeting Flipboard

Cycle Pron
