1) CodeDoodle.es 


What’s this all about?
A rather lovely site packed full of curated creative coding sketches. Well worth a look in.

What does RMA say?
“How much do I love this site!” Aaron Withey, Design Director.

Business Innsie=d

What’s this all about?
Deloitte found after analysing 140 years of data that tech has been a “great job-creating machine”.

What does RMA say?
“I see a future where almost all jobs will be interpersonal/creative, which can’t be emulated by a machine, whilst the boring stuff like resource extraction/transport etc. will be looked after by machines.” Rory Watts, Senior Interaction Designer.

3) Kano: a computer anyone can make


What’s this all about?
Kano lets kids (and adults) build, learn and create using a computer they make themselves.

What does RMA say?
I’m on it… whipping up our very own computer as we speak!” Irina Chiew, Senior Interaction Designer.
