Just one top pick today. It’s from Wired showing Honda’s latest humanoid robot. Whilst it would be easy to make wisecracks asking why we need a robot to kick a football or open a jar, the reality is this is really impressive engineering. The bigger question is what this really means for our future. With other news covering driverless cars and solar panelled roads, one has to expect the next 100 years to be defined by moments like these, even if we don’t realise it right now.
