Here is yet another opportunity  to get A(rtificial) Life. For free. The proceedings of ECAL 2013 (the biennial European Artificial Life conference) is now available from MIT Press.
Now is your chance to learn about the latest advances in adaptive hardware, artificial immune systems, bioinspired robotics/learning, in silico evolution, and much more.....
In semi-related news, check out this video about flexible circuit design (their application is called "imperceptible circuits") from Digitized Information. And in increasingly tangential news, find out more about physically transient electronics  that are reabsorbed by the body when no longer needed .
