A lot has happened this week, and we want you to know all about it.
Welcome back to our Weekly Wrap supplying this week’s dose of ‘stuff’ we love from around the internet.
First up, some news from the family…
Most recently, we have acquired digital agency, Skylab.
Skylab has worked with brands such as Manchester United, Manchester City, Formula 1 teams and the British Paralympic Association.
Jack said: “This is the next step in our ongoing and successful growth plan. Acquiring Skylab strengthens our digital innovation capabilities; offering all members of the agency collective, as well as new and existing clients, a chance to tap into Skylab’s specialist skill sets.”
Inc & Co Group is becoming more significant and more pronounced in the digital world, with a big thanks to Jack.
Someone needs to make him a brew for his incredible efforts (or a jam poly).
The whole world is showing their support of the Black Lives Matter movement in various ways. We have seen some stand out creative, created by designers across the globe that are educating others through their illustrations and sharing links to resources that people can use to help others.
Creative duo Célia Amroune and Aline Kpade paint portraits make collages and wallpaper designs by using the human form of dark skin toned people in their creations.
North Carolina-based illustrator Brandy Chieco creates lettering content by using playful words that are printed on various items. She uses positive messaging and touches on current events by using her talent throughout her work.
A Korean-American illustrator, Courtney Ahn showcases her talent by posting her designs. She is also involved with current news and using her illustrating skills to share her thoughts and opinions.

A portable scooter that fits in your backpack? Yes, you’ve heard it right. We were stunned too.
I have seen folded up scooters but never a portable scooter you can carry with your bag.
That is not even the best part. It is an inflatable electric scooter.
Goodbye, public transport. I’ve got my sweet ride. Vroom.
Piomo is a portable and inflatable scooter that is a transportable and soft personal electric automobile which can be inflated with air.
It was created in Tokyo where the design uses soft robotic technology which leaves Piomo to be safe, soft and lightweight for people to carry. It uses a wireless powering system to get you from A to B.
Everyone needs one, so we can all make it on time for dinner when we all return to work.

Don’t worry. We were just as confused as you were when we saw this.
With many designers responding to the pandemic and the low stock of facemasks Mmm Design Studio had designed a quick ‘anything’ can be a face shield frame.
Initially, you can turn any empty packets found in your home into a face shield.
This particular shield was made out of an empty Haribo’s packet (bet it smells nice).
A 3D printer made the structure of the face shield, and the shape was designed in the form of glasses. The frame has clips at the front that allows you to easily replace the current guard if it is damaged or contaminated.
We all have an excuse to buy multipacks of our favourite crisps now. Fantastic.

A company that created warehouse robots has raised $40 million to expand into new markets that led to opening a new headquarters in the EU.
Locus Robotics had spotted an opportunity with their robotics during this pandemic where every warehouse had experienced shortages of workers. This has led to an adoption of automation in the future.
Research had predicted that by 2025, 4 million commercial robots would be installed in over 50,000 warehouses around the world.
Now, this reminds us of the film I, Robot. Scary right?
Don’t worry, and they don’t look like this.
They look like this instead.
See. They are harmless.
These robots may look simple compared to the Terminator or robotics from the Transformers, but they do a lot of impressive work in the warehouse.
They can reconfigure any label printers, container, barcode scanners, totes or any technology that helps to order processing.
The LocusBots assist human workers by recognising their human’s Bluetooth badges which switch over to their preferred language.
I wonder if it understands whale?
Another impressive feature of the LocusBots is that it orchestrates their travel routes which are most efficient and share that information with other robots.
We would personally use these robots for our shopping days.

Who remembers Tetris?
Everyone should remember the 90’s retro game, where every teenager spent their life on levelling up daily. We know we did.
However, Tetris has been upgraded, and now the game is on another level.
Tetris Effect amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding you with fantastic, fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how you play.
The game involves music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects—everything.
How cool is that?
You will lose all track of time in this game, again.
