Welcome to PLAYBOOK’s Three Lean Links. This post is a bit off the topic of Lean, but totally on topic for everyone interested in integrated product development. The changes taking place with artificial intelligence and robotics are fueling industries that PLAYBOOK is definitely poised to support. Even our best futurists can't fully predict the impact these changes are going to have on our jobs and our lives. So just for fun, a creative excursion into the future!

And now the fun part. We can all create robots.
It was in Snow Crash that Stephenson linked status in the Metaverse to technical (coding) acumen. With robot parts easily available, will this same status be attached to our ability to create useful robots? Simone Giertz thinks so, so she's been practicing. Check out the self-proclaimed "sh*tty robots" that she's been creating just for fun. The point? Anyone can build a robot. All you need is an imagination.
