Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.
Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?
With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.
Today, we’d like to introduce you to Marutaro, a hedgehog who has become an online sensation with thousands of followers on Twitter, Vine, YouTube and Tumblr. Really, it’s Marutaro’s anonymous Japanese owner who deserves the credit for a crafty imagination that transforms this spiky pet into all kinds of characters.
