We're forever being told that robots will take our jobs… but what will happen to all these machines when they themselves retire?

Mimus – created by Madeline Gannon, founder of ATONATON – is an industrial robot that responds to human emotion, and Chris Creegan has been checking it out.

Meanwhile Gemma Morris meets the brains behind a special kind of bicycle light.

And Lucy James reviews some of the latest games releases, including Super Mario Run and Space Hulk: Deathwing.

Watch Swipe this weekend on Sky News on Friday at 9.35pm; Saturday at 10.30am, 2.30pm and 4.30pm and Sunday at 2.30pm and 4.30pm.
