So yesterday I rewarded myself for all the hard work over the weekend creating new products for a group initiative I am working on with some episodes of Marco Polo Season 1. Little did I know that I would be paid back with some profound lessons.One Hundred EyesThe blind kung fu master One Hundred Eyes asks Marco during a training session what he will describe Kung Fu as when he is back in the West.

Vertical Drone GarageIn preparation for the drone delivery of goods, Amazon is planning to build multi-level fulfilment centre specifically for this.
