Let’s face it: B&O’s jellybean guessing contest was undeniably the big thing in tech PR this week. But if you’re interested in seeing what else happened, check out the below!
- Americans are straight-up terrified of futu
re technology. For some reason, Pew Research found that not everyone is comfortable with robot nannies and personal drones.

- A new way to clean up an old problem. James Dyson (esteemed vacuum designer) wants to suck up trash from rivers with a crazy-looking boat. Let’s hope it has a way of filtering out things like, you know, fish and plants.
- Read The Guardian’s (robot’s) favorite stories! The newspaper announced that robots would begin producing an exclusive print edition that pulls popular content from the week. Send us a copy?
- Data centers, bringing joy and warmth to the world. We all know that things can get heated in a data center—one company proposes using them to warm up nearby homes.
Those were our favorites from the week—what were yours? Always open to hearing from you @BlancandOtus.
