Swipe: What Happens To Industrial Robots When They Retire?


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.
