These are a few of my favorite things
So I haven't posted in a while, I've been busy working to launch my new web, a personal project titled: Gumnasia, and it is of course my first favourite thing. :)
Have a great weekend
1. Happiness is a skill
"Happiness is a skill" - Naval Ravikant
Gumnasia, pronounced: goom-nas-ee’-ah, is the ancient Greek word for the gymnasium.
Gymnasium in ancient Greece were more than the gyms we know today, along with physical exercise, wrestling, and steam bath the sessions also ended with philosophical study, training, and discussion.
I live with depression every day. This blog is about my journey, how I deal with it, how the people around me handle it, it includes advice, frustrations, tips, and stories from my life. Just a note: I’m not a doctor, and I don’t play one on the internet, these are things that I have learnt, and that work for me.
2. Shesha Tuk tuk app
I'm sure you've seen those Shesha Tuk Tuks racing around Sandton, Rosebank and Pretoria Central? Now you can hail them (uber style), from their very own app. They are fast and cheap. Gotta love that.
Google's Project Soli was was revealed last year, born out of the company’s most secretive lab. To create Soli, interface guru Ivan Poupyrev fit a tiny radar into a smartwatch, allowing it to recognize the tiniest of gestures of the wearer.
The University of St. Andrews researchers took Soli to the next level on their own. Using a Soli AlphaKit, which Google shared with a select few labs, the St. Andrews researchers created a new project called RadarCat that not only recognizes gestures; but specific objects and materials.
Watch the video below, it is pretty damn incredible.
