Once paired with your phone, you can double tap the ‘e’ and it will ring your phone, even if it’s on silent. The tiny speakers now play sound up to 90 decibels, making it even easier to find.
Reviews are mixed, the pro’s obviously being that they are maintenance free. Apparently they can be quite difficult to get on in the first place, but once they are will last up to 6000 miles. I have also read that they feel quite hard and have a much thinner profile than standard tyres, but I’d love to give them a go and see.
Some nice cookware from Crane, a small, family owned cookware company making vitreous enamel sand-cast products in Picardie. There’s a nice factory video too, below.
Last month the BBC launched the BBC micro:bit – a handheld, programmable device designed as a creative means to teach children to code. The device will be distributed to one million 11-12 year old children across the UK in October.
The BBC micro:bit is designed as a beginner-level device to teach children to code and engage them with technology. The device features a built-in compass, motion detector, a series of red LED lights, five “rings” that allow users to connect the BBC micro:bit to external devices or sensors, bluetooth technology and two programmable buttons. The BBC micro:bit is fully customisable allowing the user, through basic coding, to tailor the device to meet their interests.
The shape and aesthetic design of the BBC micro:bit was created by Technology Will Save Us, a London-based technology company that specialises in creating interactive products that teach users basic coding. I’ve had a look at some of their kits before and they look great, this makes me wish I was about to start secondary school again and get hold of one myself!
