There, robots prepare the goods and pack them for home delivery into an autonomous vehicle – or a drone.

If you signal your approval, it offers to warm the oven before you get home from work.

It's no secret that the replacement for Bugatti's legendary Veyron would be called the Chiron -- except that apparently it was a secret, because Bugatti just officially announced the name this... morning. "Chiron" has been floating around in the automotive press for many months, so today's press release just puts a bow on it. The name comes from Louis Chiron, a decorated Bugatti driver in the formative years of the 20th century. Beyond the name, the company isn't saying much about the car, although it's widely expected to look a lot like the Vision Gran Turismo concept car revealed at the Frankfurt auto show in September: in other words, a refined Veyron with striking headlamps. It will feature a quad-turbocharged W-16 engine -- like the...

(Something that Jackson alludes to.) The director doesn't get a chance to sign what is presumably a contract before Capaldi is forced to exit stage right, pursued by Dalek.

The Irish traveller - their image has become the bat with which they are beaten. At best, their portrayal is a romanticised vision, bow-topped caravans populated by gruff adults and grubby-faced... children.

Moving beyond such superficial depictions, Northern Irish photographer Chris Barr, who earned his MA in photography from the University of Ulster, has spent the last ten years photographing travellers throughout Ireland as part of his ongoing series Katabasis. What results is a gritty but personal evocation of an extremely nuanced community. The project began as an exploration of the horse within traveller culture. "The horse has long been at the heart of the travelling community", says Barr. "I was interested in...
