Man in Singapore Fired For Throwing Tantrum on Facebook About Pokémon GO

Sonny Truyen used rage. It's not very effective...

The hype for Pokémon GO is very real and people are losing their jobs over it. Sonny Truyen, an Australian who just started working at Singapore property site 99.co as the vice president of digital marketing, has been fired for posting an angry rant about not having Pokémon GO yet.

Sonny got into a spat with a Singaporean named Adelene Kong, which started when Sonny called Singapore a "sh*t country."

Pixar technical director Alonso Martinez made this adorable little robot that's sure to give you the awwws. Described as a "desk companion," Mira is capable of tracking faces in order to play a game of peek-a-boo with the user. According to Martinez, 

Mira is a desk companion that makes your life better one smile at a time. This project explores human robot interactivity and emotional intelligence. Currently Mira uses face tracking to interact with the users and loves playing the game “peek-a-boo”. As her understanding of the world and people's emotions get richer so will her ability to interact with people in a more meaningful way.

When Mira sees you during a game of peek-a-boo, she wobbles and chirps with excitement, which surely makes long days stuck at a desk easier. There's no word on whether or not Martinez plans to bring Mira to the consumer market, but if he does, you can bet I'll be first in line to buy one.
