Bleh. It's the middle of the week. Two-and-a-half days down, and two-and-a-half more to go. For a little bit of inspiration (and a bit of distraction), check out this week's round of neat-o links from around the office:

This YouTube video features some interesting discussion about Drones (quadcopters and the like) and the way robotics is headed, technologically and ethically.

Our pals at the local Calgary hackerspace have been to work with their laser cutter, making impressive edge-lit acrylic badges using a watch battery and a basic LED.

Liz, an all-star member of our sales staff, found this really cool interactive painting of dandelions, that react to being blown on.

This is a few years old, but still super cool. This story from NASA details some astronauts on board the International Space Station. As described by Dave, our fearless leader, when he submitted this link, it's "Soooodering...in SPAAAAACE".
Years "Years" - Wood Rings Used to Make Sound
