When I was a kid, I never thought much of the Etch-A-Sketch. But a tool is only as good as the one using it. Did I just insult myself? I think I just praised Jane Labowitch, who calls herself Princess Etch-A-Sketch.
Light painting can be a pretty awesome technique, which involves the capture of a moving light source, using long-exposure photography. Photographers have created some pretty amazing images using the medium, but it can be complicated to pull off unless you know exactly what you’re doing, and have a camera with full manual exposure controls.
A lot of people would agree that breakfast is perhaps the most important meal of the day. I agree and I never miss it if I have a choice. But if the mascots on the cereal boxes had a change of face and were changed to look like the ones below, then I wouldn’t hesitate to skip it.

At first glance, London-based duo Tim Noble and Sue Webster’s new exhibition called Nihilistic Optimistic looks like a collection of discarded junk and random wood fixtures. But shine a light on them and take a look at the shadows they’ll cast on the wall, and you will be amazed.
Life’s tough. Sometimes, it feels good to hash things out with friends or family to get rid of the negativity. But when you feel like keeping things to yourself but want to express your emotions, then you’ve got the Corezone to turn to.
For most of us with smartphones, a desktop calculator is a relic of days-gone-by. But I still like the convenience of having one around so I don’t have to bother to dig around for the calculator app on my phone.
It takes years for a person to learn how to write Japanese or Chinese characters. There’s good news though. Robots can do it a lot quicker. A research group has developed a ‘bot that can identify and mimic detailed brush strokes that are required to write these kinds of characters.
