Living Machines Handbook

So proud to have worked on this tome, Living machines: A handbook of research in biomimetics and biohybrid systems, with so many great minds and brilliant scholars. I edited one section, on ‘Perspectives’ (looking mostly at social and cultural impacts of living machines), and contributed an introduction to that section and a chapter, ‘Living machines in the cultural imagination.’ Do check it out; there’s something for everyone in the book with an interest in robotics, psychology, biomimetics, biohybrid systems, and (of course) the social, ethical. and cultural impacts of new technologies.

BUIHA International All-Stars rosters announced

Sometimes with all my professional activities I forget to make space for some of my other great loves here, ice hockey being one of them.

I’m really proud to be involved in selected and coaching this BUIHA International All-Stars, who will play the GB Universities Men’s team on 20 April, 2018 at Ice Sheffield, to help the GBU men prepare for their upcoming tournaments.

It should be a fantastic game, and a great atmosphere. Ticket information is available here.
