I have never been a fan of hip hop music but after watching The Get Down on Netflix, I have come away with a new found appreciation for the art of spinning. I mean, being a DJ is serious business and requires mad skills. And to acquire those skills, you’ve got to start ’em young. Expose them to turntables and other DJ equipment while they’re still kids.

While everyone else is outside catching monsters in their smartphones, I’d rather stay indoors and pop bubbles in my iPhone. You see, there’s a new game for the iPhone and iPad that’s reminiscent of the games we used to play when we were kids. It may not be as high tech as augmented reality but its straight-forward gameplay is its appeal. It’s just a rocket ship blasting through space, bursting candy-colored bubbles. Spacebubble Pop is a simple yet challenging game that I’m sure the whole family would enjoy.
A few years ago, I attended a film photography class where we made our own pinhole camera out of cardboard and duct tape. I wasn’t able to develop the photos I took (wasn’t able to consume the whole roll of film) but I enjoyed the process of DIY-ing my camera. It feels rewarding to be able to create something functional out of a simple material. So when I stumbled upon this smartphone projector on the internet, I thought it was interesting because it, too, is made of cardboard.
