Open Planet Ideas: join the challenge

Sony, the creator of Walkman, PlayStation and Blu-ray disc, has teamed up with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for the inaugural Open Planet Ideas challenge.

How can technology be used to make the most of our planet's environment and that's where you come in! Readers of this blog can Join the challenge and Find Out More About Open Planet Ideas.

There's a wealth of proofs of concept, using existing Sony technology, already available and waiting for mashup. How would you use a PSPgo to keep disparate communities in touch?

Sony is investing in engineering and R&D. However, this is not-for-profit and the results of the challenge will be made available to third-parties and benefit the environment, too.

Please get involved in anyway that you can and leave suggestions in comments. I'll update the post with links to your ideas.

'The Hitman' signing at Forbidden Planet

Forbidden Planet are pleased to announce a signing by Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart. He will be signing Hitman: My Life In The Cartoon World of Wrestling at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 16th April 6 – 7pm.

In Hitman, one of pro-wrestling's biggest stars tells it like it was, with a human and very touching amount of detail. He relates the story of how a family-friendly, locally oriented sport run by curmudgeonly promoters was steamrollered by Hulk Hogan - fuelled WWF marketing machine. Hart also vividly depicts the threadbare but thrilling family business he grew up in, road trips in crowded vans, meagre pay, clownish ring antics and solid sense of brotherhood. This is a glance under the ropes of pro-wrestling, from one of its biggest stars.

Bret Hart is recognised as one of the best wrestlers in the world. Multiple record-holder and winner of manifold titles, he is known for never having injured another wrestler. He has a worldwide fan base and his own column in the Calgary Sun; he was also up for the lead in Batman Triumphant, before production was cancelled.

Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for signing events, including: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Terry Gilliam, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Mark Millar, Guillermo Del Toro, Brian Froud and Stephen King.
