We’re all off on an über-hike this weekend to raise money for the kids at Julia’s House, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to leave you newsless. It’s Friday Five time.

1. KIT?

Okay, so it doesn’t have that famous 80s vibe, but Google’s latest innovation looks to make your smartphone the powerhouse behind your car’s UI.

2. New age travel journalism

This Place is an amazing travel journal, compiled by people who are passionate about the places they document, and the stories those places tell.

3. Online dating anew

Writing an About Me page is often a tiresome task, especially when it’s on a dating site. Dreamcliq takes a new approach, inviting videos and images of your lifestyle and personality instead.

4. Charge

There’s nothing more infuriating than being miles away from the nearest charger when your device is running on fumes, so Intel have decided to electrify your furniture.

5. Net-a-Google

Some think that Google Glass’s pricepoint is too high for the high street, but that hasn’t stopped them collabing with Net-a-Porter to make an even more expensive designer model.

Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend. Wish us luck!
