4K news this week:

Links around the watercooler:

  • Boston Dynamics has made a cheetah robot. Let’s hope Skynet doesn’t get a hold of this information, otherwise, we know what we can expect — Cheetah Terminators.
  • Looking for filler text for your mock-ups or comps? Inject a bit of hip into your designs with Hipster Ipsum. Or not. It may not be cool now that it’s mainstream. (You can also contribute to the project on GitHub here.)
  • Do you like the movie Alien? Do you like Augmented Reality? Look no further than the Chest Burster app.
  • Finally, on a serious note, The NoSQL tapes is a great resource for your anti-relational needs. Tim Anglade went around the world and interviewed experts, creators and thought leaders, and packaged it nicely on this site.
