Bruce Sterling recently posted an announcement on Viridiandesign.com about a new Viridian Design Contest sponsored by GBN. The contest? You have one month to document a design for a futuristic robot dog based on Viridian design principals. You'll need to come up with the instruction manual, pricing, safety warnings, a description of the assembly methods, and perhaps some fake ads for the product (but not the actual robot). The Prize? A Sony Aibo ERS-31L, of course.
