This is the Original Friday Inspiration series - amazing things that we handpicked to inspire you to greatness. You have a full weekend ahead, so use it wisely – don’t waste your days of rest on resting! You don’t need to do big things. In fact, let’s talk about the little things. There are lots of situations in which a small change has a surprisingly large impact. So if you have a plan you can’t follow (gain/lose weight, build muscle, become rich etc.), just take a very small step towards that and keep repeating it. For example, if you are trying to exercise more and take the bus to work, you might decide to simply get off one stop earlier than usual and walk the rest of the way. That’s peanuts, right? So remember this: small changes, large effect.

If you like movies, you must have seen The Remains of the Day, the essential butler movie, starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, among other folks.

Basically, what we’re dealing with here is an Android based moving projector. A robot that will follow you around the house, bringing home entertainment to a whole new … continue reading
If you think you’ve seen them all, well, think again, because you’re pretty far from it. Just take a look at this funny looking Smeg refrigerator. Okay, and what about that weird design, resembling a cheap italian car from the 50′s ? Well, that’s the whole idea. If you’re into Italian cheap cars, why don’t you buy a refrigerator that looks like a vintage Fiat 500? At least that’s the concept. So, welcome Smeg, the little refrigerator that could. Have … continue reading

You read that right, Sprout is the pencil that will turn into a plant once you deplete it. All you need to do is plant it and pour some water – its innovative seed capsule in the tip will automatically get activated and a plant of your choice will start growing. The only downside is you can’t chew on its end of it while you’re in class, taking tests etc., or you’ll risk activating its capsule. But putting that aside, … continue reading
I only put the pedal to the metal when I’m alone in my car, because I like to think I’m responsible. That’s also the case when I rent an ATV – if I ride alone, the mountains don’t have enough steep slopes for me to try. When I have someone else on it with me, I just cruise.
