These are a few of my favorite things
Here is this week's top 3, and a new feature... app of the week by a friend Riaan, from Elevato Labs.
My personal favorite is the Lego tape... too cool.
Have a good one
1. Lego Tape
"Nimuno’s Lego tape is an adhesive plastic strip with Lego bumps on one side. It allows you to turn anything into a Lego compatible surface, from walls to toys to your own body" - Daily Dot
2. Glasses from Sheet Metal
"Looking for a way to reduce the amount of waste material when producing eyeglasses and sunglasses, RELVAOKELLERMANN decided to take a new approach...They’re able to reduce waste significantly by cutting their glasses out as thin metal bands that are then shaped to form the frames. Not only is waste reduced, but more glasses can be cut out of a single sheet of metal thereby reducing production costs." - Design Milk
3. The Biggest Threat to middle age men
smoking or obesity, it's loneliness.
I am approaching midlife, fast, and this article caught me eye this week. And sad to say, it is very true. When I look around me, I see many me struggle loneliness, having few friends, and hardly anyone has super close friends. I must say that without living super intentional towards others, my life would just collapse into work and my kids' schedule.
"Now consider that in the United States, nearly a third of people older than 65 live alone; by age 85, that has jumped to about half. Add all of this up, and you can see why the surgeon general is declaring loneliness to be a public health epidemic." - Boston Globe
App of the week
This weeks app is not actually an app. It is a mobile game called Reigns
And why do I recommend this game?
Firstly it is fun. Secondly it helps to waste some smelly Gautrain space and time. But the real kicker is the game’s great element of strategy and risk.
The aim - try to be king for as long as possible!
