Spend enough time on the internet and you find that there’s more than knitting out there. Hard to believe, I know, but it’s true. 

AGNES the Knitting Robot - Built by Andy Noyes and visiting the UK from Uncanny Valley, AGNES knits a scarf on a circular loom. Only slightly creepy. 

Nanoscale Pressure Systems Mimic Human Skin - While we’re on the topic of robots, they may be getting a human-like sense of touch soon.

Top Score - A new to me podcast with almost 50 episodes to enjoy. Hosted by Emily Reese and presented by Classical Minnesota Public Radio, Top Score takes an in-depth listen of video game soundtracks with composer interviews and track samples. There’s also the added bonus of generally being spoiler free. Listening to this series makes me want to play games that I never would have considered otherwise.
