What We Learned This Week: 'Free' Electricity, A Bear Made Of Forks & Formula E RoboCar

Eyup,

Like bikes? Enjoy keeping fit? Hate paying for electricity? Well, here you go. Just what you were looking for: 

At least you can feel knackered with the lights on

Elsewhere, this bloke called Gary is making animal sculptures out of cutlery. Gorillas, bears, peacocks. Loads of stuff.

A Silverware-back Gorilla and family

With new species discovered every week (maybe even every day, I haven't checked), the world's cutlery deposits will run dry long before Gary can even start on Bigfoot (either monster truck or ape thing).

This majestic specimen was made from a few spatulas, a fish slice and pizza cutters

I reckon Formula One is easily one of the most boring sports there is. Now that the electric circuit (HA!) is opening up, Formula E has at least some curiosity to it. 

What if there were Formula E cars that drove themselves though? 


According to Daniel Simon, the designer of RoboCar and vehicles from  Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, the car will drive itself in a series of 'shows' rather than races (races featuring human drivers with 'robots' kept strictly to the shows). I for one hope that a RoboCar goes rogue and a rampant AI wreaks havoc in a human race. Can't wait for Michael Bay to make that film 
That's all for this week.
