I just came across c cool startup that makes wooden keyboards. They keyboard is similar to Apple’s and connects to your computer wirelessly via bluetooth. It’s made of high quality walnut wood and is powered by AAA batteries which run a few months per charge.
Looks pretty sleek to me, probably the best marriage of wood and technology that I have seen.
Did you know that you get two sets of teeth in your lifetime? You will start losing your baby teeth at around 6-7 years of age. By the time you are 21, you only have one set and it becomes permanent. From there on, your teeth are meant to last for all your life. But do they? Not, really.
By the time you are 65, chances are you will have some teeth missing. This, however can be prevented – if not completely, then partially – by flossing and hygienic mouth washing.
This campaign by Listerine aims to remind you to wash your mouth. To make this entertaining, they have put together a rapping video contest. Watch how rappers – their chins, to be precise – battle against each other in a rap contest, and remember to keep your mouth clean to make your teeth last longer.

Professor Skinner believed that growing babies in boxes was good for their wellbeing during their first year. Despite widespread criticism he managed to sell several hundred of those boxes between 1957 and 1967 and even grew his own daughter in a box like the one below.
This was a spacious compartment, mounted on a wheeled table, with a large glass window, temperature and air control, in which the baby could stay naked and comfortable, kept in the presence of the mother wherever she was working in the house.
It appears that when we don’t drink or sweat our brain shrinks. In fact, 90 minutes of sweating shrinks the brain as much as a year of ageing.
It doesn’t meen you need to stop doing sports, because the grey matter restores in size as soon as you get hydrated again. But it does mean that staying hydrated is very important for being sharp and alert. Failing to drink enough water makes it harder to think.
Drinking coffee and tea, by the way, makes it harder to think too because caffeine acts as a mild diuretic, preventing water from traveling to necessary locations in the body. Take a note.
Let this poor guy in a slow mo video by Drench serves you as a gentle reminder to always stay hydrated.
