Kinobi Will Use Kinect To Teach You Yoga, Dancing Or Maybe Even Surgery YouTube makes it easy to find instructional videos on practically any topic. There are 18,600,000 search results for “how to” on the site at the moment. Obviously not all of them are relevant, but that’s a staggering number. Resumes Are Bullshit. HireArt Is Better. HireArt, a newly launched Y Combinator-backed company, is working to solve a major problem that all employers face today: resumes are bullshit. Job candidates often like to fluff up their experience, and sometimes they even outright lie about their abilities. Other times, potentially great employees are overlooked because they have unorthodox backgrounds that don’t match up with what an employer thinks they need in terms of experience. Sometimes these kinds of things are realized during the in-person interview. Unfortunately for many employers, they often don’t discover how much a particular candidate may have oversold themselves until they’ve been hired and can’t perform to expectations. With its new applicant screening system, HireArt thinks it may have a solution: have the employees actually do the work first.

Trouble waking up? This ejector bed should fix that If you're one of the 7 billion people in this world, you probably have trouble waking up in the morning. An impetuous inventor from the UK has just solved this problem. YouTuber Colin Furze built what he's calling a "High Voltage Ejector Bed," and the name pretty much says it all. Furze built a metal frame which resembles a Murphy bed, except instead of folding backwards to be flush with a wall, it pushes the bed forward away from the wall.

Wahanda Rebrands To Treatwell, Eyes Up U.S. Entry Wahanda, the European hair and beauty marketplace that Japan’s Recruit Holdings majority acquired last year for $117 million (at a $240 million pre-money valuation), is getting a makeover of its own. Today the company has rebranded to Treatwell. The name comes from an acquisition made in June 2015 to expand its services in Holland, Germany and Belgium. The name change and brand refresh — led by the same team that worked on Airbnb’s last overhaul — comes as the company continues to eye up how best to expand to the U.S.. There, companies like StyleSeat and Groupon offer platforms for consumers to connect with local salons for haircuts and other beauty treatments; but the majority of IT solutions focused on the hair and beauty market are to sell cloud-based software to salons without the marketplace component, according to Treatwell CEO and founder Lopo Champalimaud.

Playing with Kinetic Sand is a magical and mesmerizing experience, giving a moment of relaxation for both young and old. UltraTech International Inc. Ultra-Ever Dry does NOT dry clear! It cannot be used on automobile windshields and obscures visibility through glass. Ultra-Ever Dry is a superhydrophobic (water) and oleophobic (hydrocarbons) coating that will repel most water-based and some oil-based liquids. Ultra-Ever Dry uses proprietary omniphobic technology to coat an object and create a surface chemistry and texture with patterns of geometric shapes that have “peaks” or “high points”. These high points repel water, some oils, wet concrete, and other liquids unlike any other coating. Ultra-Ever Dry has vastly improved adhesion and abrasion resistance, compared to previous superhydrophobic technologies, allowing it to be used in applications where greater durability is required.

Drill Buddy: Drilling Dust Collector, Laser Level, and Bubble Level The Drill Buddy is a little device that you can attach to your wall to catch all of the dust and debris that comes from your wall when drilling to make a hole.

How it works is, the Drill Buddy uses a vacuum suction that keeps that device stuck to the wall, you can then stick you drill through the hole in the Drill Buddy, and the dust that comes out of your wall while drilling will go right into the container on the side, which you can then easily empty into a garbage later.
