Is resurrecting Google’s BookBot the need of the hour?

Everyone in Silicon Valley is trying to design something straight out of the future. We treat science and technology as the end all be all of our issues and rightfully so, but here is an unpopular opinion – do we REALLY need technology in every aspect of our lives to make it better? A decade ago, robots doing all our tasks were just a thing of movies and today we don’t go a day without interacting with a robot – think about it, even if you call a place there is a 99% chance an automated voice ...

Review: Maquia – When the Promised Flower Blooms

The queen of emotionally charged anime screenplays, Mari Okada, has graduated to director. At first glance, her debut, Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms (now at the tail end of its limited US theatrical run), seems a little outside her wheelhouse — it has a Western high fantasy aesthetic, a far cry from the modern Japanese settings of series like Anohana and Hanasaku Iroha . But its narrative core is pure Okada: raw emotions explode between characters in indulgent “cry jam sessions”...
