The world in your hand
Snowglobes. They’re so small and pretty and… boring. Well, not for long – because artists JD Beltran and Scott Minneman have created a protoype that aims to herald in the next generation of snowglobes.
Instead of being filled with standard fake snow or glitter, they will beam with your favourite imagery straight into your eyeballs. (And, yes, you still get to shake them.)

This impressive sci fi short telling the life of an artificially intelligent robot called Robbie – and his inevitable end – has been made by Neil Harvey using only footage taken from the NASA archives.
It’s also quite touching… but probably only if you like robots.
