About Primitive Technology

“Primitive technology is a hobby where you make things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials. This is the strict rule. If you want a fire- use fire sticks, an axe- pick up a stone and shape it, a hut- build one from trees, mud, rocks etc. The challenge is seeing how far you can go without modern technology. If this hobby interests you then this blog might be what you are looking for.” READ MORE

VR exhibit at The National Gallery of Prague allows the blind to ‘see’ art thanks to special gloves.

“For centuries, art has been a universal medium of expression that has, and continues to, connect language, time and culture. Art however, in its various forms, materials and interpretations, is still not accessible to everyone. Out of 7.595.145.000 people living, over 36.000.000 are blind from birth and 217.000.000 have moderate to severe vision impairment. And in today’s information age, the only way the blind can experience art, is through the senses of tactility and sound.
Whilst the internet does provide descriptive audio, only some iconic masterpieces are presented in such a manner, and in just a few museums, globally. Thus, millions of people have literally not seen, and will never see, sculptural masterpieces such as the head of Nefertiti, the beauty of the Venus de Milo or Michelangelo’s David, to name just a few – until now.
NeuroDigital invites Prague’s visually impaired people to a new age of digital accessibility, to see what has previously been unseen”  READ MORE

• Hear about it from a guide
• It’s not a full experience

• You can see it, touch it

Is your bike ready for the snow?

Is your bike ready for the snow?

Business Insider UK

This mod will make your bike ready for the slopes!

It’s made by Fat Bike Skis. It replaces the front wheel of the bike with a ski, making them much better suited to snow. The ski prevents the bike from skidding or doing an ‘endo’.

Braking is controlled by the rear tyre, or by steering side to side. The mod can be fitted to most bikes. You just remove the front wheel and clip the ski on.

The company believes they have finally perfected the design, and it is going into production. It will cost around £630, and be available March 2018.  Preorders available HERE

Perfect Symphony (Feat. Andrea Bocelli)

I found a love for me
Oh darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes, you’re holding mine

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight
