This week in PopTech: Robot films, 6 word stories and connected states


There's always something brewing in the PopTech community. From the world-changing people, projects and ideas in our network, a handful of this week's highlights follows.

  • The Connected States of America is the newest project from PopTech 2010 presenter Carlo Ratti and the SENSEable City Lab at MIT. The initiative takes a look at how communities are redefining themselves within the United States, tracking social interactions by studying anonymous, aggregated mobile phone data.
  • The first ever Robot Film Festival will descend upon the Three Legged Dog Art and Technology Center in New York City July 16th-17th. The event was created by none other than roboticist and 2010 PopTech speaker Heather Knight
