An interesting and obvious development. I think we can see a megatrend here where the increasing uncertainty and volatility in the world is related to the shortcomings of humans, which will increase the urge to use robots.
BICYCLE ACTIVISM: Latvian activists from a branch of the bicycle advocacy group Let’s Bike it recently created a visual reminder of the space taken by cars on a typical road. To this end, the group fabricated bamboo skeletons shaped like actual cars and mounted them on their bikes. The activists then cycled around the streets of Riga for several hours to highlight the absurdity of using a large car to move a single person. The stunt was organized as part of European Mobility Week, an ongoing campaign that explores sustainable urban mobility around Europe.
Simple yet clear. Go by bike!
