Sunday Sunrise – 17th February 2013 – Going Flying After The Show

Snapshot of Stories

A month-old piglet from Florida, born without the use of its back legs, is now sporting a custom-built wheelchair to get around.  Chris P. Bacon has become an internet sensation after vet, Len Lucero, took pity on the creature’s plight and built the contraption from a toy building kit.  Chris’s exploits on YouTube have logged more than 474,000 views in two weeks.

Increasingly manufacturers and developers are experimenting with wearable technology.  Recent innovations include clothes that display twitter updates, mobile phone headsets, Google glasses, mobile phones that work in conjunction with wristwatches, and bracelets that track your fitness regime.  As an experiment in wearable tech, and to highlight the possibilities of recycling old mobile phones in an imaginative way, designer Sean Miles of Designworks was approached by O2 Recycling to integrate mobile phones into shoes.
