What caught your eye this week (Week 6)?

David Manners, components editor
…It was Intel’s move into wearables.
Sue Proud, production editor
This one is a bit of a juvenile and sniggery ‘this caught my eye’, because it has toilets, and ‘waste cooking’ (eugh!) and the Great Philanthropist (aka Microsoft founder Bill Gates reincarnated from hard-nosed businessman to all-round good guy) combined under the banner of solar power. Really that’s a story that has everything.
…3D printing of UAVs by the University of Sheffield, emerging from its Boeing-backed Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre. Rather ominously, for me, it promises unmanned aircraft that could be disposable and sent on one-way flights for delivery, search or reconnaissance purposes.
