Hey readers, We’re nearing the end of the week which means one step closer to July 4th for our US readers - but don’t let your attention drift away just yet, we have some great stories going up on PSFK. Our PSFK 2017 conference wrap-up continues with an incredible exploration of the future of biotech from Christina Agapakis. Elsewhere, we look at a wearable that charges itself by using human sweat, street lamps that charge electric vehicles and even a robot whose sole purpose is to roam the beach and write poetry. Be sure to check it all out! AND!!! Have you downloaded The Future of Manufacturing yet? Our series continues with an exploration of new ways companies are approaching R&D. -Andrew Vaterlaus-Staby, Editorial Director, PSFK
