7 Things This Week [#114]

A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.

1️⃣ I’m all for this idea of being able to snapshot the current status of a smart home to easily recreate that same scene later. [🔗 Ben Lovejoy // 9to5mac.com]

2️⃣ A $17 movie night either 10 short films, fun dip, and popcorn flavoring? And you get to vote for the winning film to earn a $100,000 grand prize? Sounds like fun! [🔗 cahfest.com]

3️⃣ This is a weird one. Apple shared an hour-and-a-half-long video of a guided study session for you to work with using the Pomodoro technique. The videography is, as you can imagine, impeccable. [⏯️ Apple // youtube.com]

4️⃣ This would have been so novel to see at home as the news station switched from black and white to a color broadcast. [⏯️ Back to the Past // youtube.com] (Via Jason Kottke)

5️⃣ Oh my god, you’ve got to check out this ice climbing shoe. It’s wild-looking on its own, but the hilarious reviews really seal the deal. 😂 [🔗 Mega Ice Evo // lasportivausa.com]

6️⃣ The UI for reading/listening to a voice note on Threads is pretty slick. [🔗 @jaypetersplus // threads.net]

7️⃣ You like squircles? We got squircles. I like this idea that the closer to the human something is, the rounder the design should be. [🔗 Arun Venkatesan // arun.is]
