I had a perfect London day yesterday: Breakfast in Brick Lane, round a trendy design exhibition, a salt beef bagel lunch, a stroll around Spitalfields market (almost bumping into Alexa Chung), coffee in Borough Market, stroll down the river to the South Bank (ice cream), over to Covent Garden (coffee in Neal St), back to the South Bank (sunset from Waterloo Bridge), watch latin music live gig (bump into random friend), home. And a beautiful sunny day and moonlit evening. Perfect. How could I live anywhere else?

Bizarrely enough, my PhD project, Bloodbot, has appeared on this month’s Wired website, despite being years old.
We had the Gadget Show film crew round on Friday to film our work on two projects for them. One is a robot that throws a ball for your pet dog to chase, the other is a harness for a cat that allows it to stream video and for you to track it’s position via a GPS/GSM unit. I spent quite a bit of time in the preceeding two weeks programming the CatCam software.
