Magic

 

Magic is a text message based service that allows you to get whatever you want on demand with no hassle (as long as it’s not illegal of course!).

Magic has trained operators standing by 24/7 to answer all of your requests. You simply send them a text message, and they’ll get you what you want by ordering what you need from the appropriate service (e.g. DoorDash, Instacart, Postmates, etc.), and dealing with them for you so you just automatically get what you want, like magic

I’m impressed and I think Houdini would be as well.

The Cross

“For thousands of years, people have viewed the symbol of the cross as an icon of hope. But does it ever strike you as strange that the cross is actually an ancient execution device? In this short film, progressive pastor Rob Bell shows us a different way to look at this enduring symbol and how it can help us make peace with our past.”

FiLIP, Wearable phone and locator for kids

When Sten Kirkbak lost his 3-year old son Filip for thirty minutes, it inspired the idea for ‘FiLIP’: a wearable Smart Locator and Phone for kids designed to keep parents and their young children in touch. Every parent wants their child to have the freedom to explore, discover and just be a kid. Now parents can stay in touch on any adventure. Visit http://www.myfilip.com for more information or to buy FiLIP.

This is a game changer for kids safety and parents piece of mind!

I don’t have kids but this is so cool I would have a kid just to buy them this watch. On second thought scratch that, I’ll buy one for my niece and nephews instead!
