The Friday Five: 63rd edition

It feels like it’s been a while, but at long last, it’s back. It’s Friday Five - number 62.

#1 Off the grid

If the stresses of social media and Big Brother-esque surveillance are getting you down, then you need Un Pocket, the stealth pouch, which blocks the signals that keep us plugged in.

#2 Low-tech craft stories

Most will know that we’re passionate about mastering our craft - so when we saw this documentary series about craftsmanship in middle America, we were in straight away.

#3 Storage titans

SanDisk, fabled memory gurus, have bundled a massive 512GB into their latest SD card; half a terabyte on the tip of your finger!

#4 Rehabilitation power

The James Dyson award this year goes to four engineering students, for developing the Titan Arm, a device which can help people with back problems regain muscle control.

#5 Chin energy

Canadian engineers have built a chin-strap which harnesses the energy from chewing and turns it into electricity.

Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend.
