Love this cycling robot created by Masahiko Yamaguchi in Japan. The tiny self balancing robot rides a fixed gear bicycle remote controlled by an operator.

Recently our good friends Andy & Marina were wed in a beautiful, immaculately styled wedding down in Melbourne. The day was captured perfectly by Auckland based photographers Baley & Moore who accompany their fantastic images with a little stop-motion video of the day in its entirety. I feel they may have started a trend!

Ross Nanotechnology have developed an incredible spray coating that completely repels water and heavy oils. Dubbed NeverWet™ the coating is Super Hydrophobic – liquid cannot grip onto the surface, it simply rolls off. Can’t wait to get my hands on some of this stuff when its released next year!


Glass Bridge

Originally conceived back in 1997, and having won a Bombay Sapphire award in 2002, Heatherwick Studio’s ‘Glass Bridge’ seems to be making modest progress into reality as part of Argent Groups Kings Cross redevelopment. If built this structure will, like all of Heatherwicks works around London, be both visually, and technically beautiful. It would contain no metal fasteners, instead use weight-driven levers at each end to apply 800 tonnes of pressure, compressing 1334 sheets of 12mm glass into a beam strong enough to be used as a pedestrian bridge. Really hope this one gets built.
