Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Things that have made my day this week

Come to Singapore! The Sights (And Branding) Are Lovely | WIRED – it feels very Monocle-esque

William Gibson on the decline of cyberspace

Interesting to see Renault going back to Alpine’s sports roots with the Vision. Similar formula to the 1960s cars, a light, small car with a highly tuned small engine

I am a sucker for well done manufacturing and process films. The first one up is from Tesla, highlighting robots working in a manufacturing cell on their X model vehicle

The second is a German Army film from 1970 showing the manufacture of a Heckler & Koch G3 assault rifle. It is really interesting for its use of early computer numerical controlled machines including at least one multi-tool cell.
