Unusual, trendy and just plain weird wearables

Most wearables perform only a few functions. They count your steps, show you the time, or track your heart rate. These unusual devices do much more. For instance, one attaches to your body or your bike and shows you a real-time weather forecast. Another tells you when you are stressed out and should breathe a bit slower. While the Apple Watch gets all of the attention, these gadgets fit into a niche that might just solve a real problem or provide a distinct benefit.

The worst storage mediums of all time

Formats
Papyrus and movable type were huge steps forward in their times, but the 20th century saw massive jumps in data storage. Paper and ink gave way to magnetic tape and various types of disk, and suddenly humanity could store so much more than just the written word. Unfortunately, we’ve also hit some major speed bumps along the way.
