Glide - video texting

Glide - video texting
We all love the fun of live video chat, but it can be a hassle to schedule, picture quality is poor and calls freeze or get dropped. Messaging is quick and convenient, but doesn't compare with the intimacy of face-to-face video. Texting apps that allow you to attach video are slow and cumbersome. That's why we created Glide - the world's first instant video messenger. It's a revolutionary new way to stay in touch that combines the expressiveness of live video chat with the spontaneity of messaging.

A 3D-printing business that will sell you a hyperrealistic 6-inch statuette of yourself is actually doing well - Quartz A little over a year ago, a German company called Twinkind opened its doors with a novel proposition: For $300 it would 3D-print you a full-color, lifelike replica of yourself. The detail the figurines could capture was uncanny—the bristles of a moustache, the wisps of thread on a faded pair of jeans. The company is part of a wave of 3D-printed-portrait businesses opening around the world, some roving and some, like Twinkind and London’s My3Dtwin, based in storefronts, but all trying to capture the public’s growing interest in a hugely hyped emerging technology. As it happens, souvenirs manufactured on demand are not a recent invention.

Two Brothers Re-Create Childhood Photos As A Priceless Gift To Their Mother EmailEmail There’s a fun new trend in contemporary photography – digging through one’s old childhood photos and creating detailed replicas. The Luxton brothers’ project, though, is probably the most hilarious of them all.

Some of them are disturbing, some of them are odd, but all in all, the photo calendar came out touching and brilliantly amusing! 20 works of street art that make you say: how did they even think of this?

On International Yoga Day, yoga is just politics by other means The business of yoga is steadily growing and includes an over $10 billion industry in the United States alone. Yet, some fear that yoga has been forgotten in India where it is being replaced by damaging “foreign” habits, such as eating unhealthy food and remaining stationary at desk jobs for most of the day. That is why Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken it upon himself and his government to reclaim yoga from the yoga enthusiasts abroad, who are perceived to have co-opted the practice. Modi’s recent decision to appoint a Minister of Yoga in Shripad Naik reflects his ongoing efforts to reclaim yoga for India. The Ministry’s strategy is to expand the role of yoga in key areas of Indian civil society, including schools, hospitals, and police training centers.
