    When you're the Chief Technology Officer for a Healthcare firm that specializes in delivery robots, forward thinking just sort of comes with the territory.  After a while of doing what was once considered impossible, I'd imagine you remove the word from your vocabulary.  Such is the case with...

    In our world, Sunglasses are a unfortunately a consumable item.  Frequent travel and constant use from May until September during show season means that they are often abused and neglected, causing lenses to be rendered useless after a few months.  This can get to be an expensive proposition if...
