In This Edition:
Leather ASMR, Society6, UserInyerface, Easy Pie Chart Maker, IoT mesh bridge, LightSail, The Solar System as Gaeilge and Basecamp's ShapeUp!

This week I came across Little King Goods on YouTube (via Peter McKinnon). Little King Goods hand make leather products and also make videos of the process. Some of these videos are ASMR, which only include the sound of the process, no background music etc. They are incredibly satisfying to watch, almost meditative, such as this one showing him making a leather money clip.

User Inyerface


User Inyerface is a showcase of how to build the worst UI and UX implementation ever, built by Belgian IoT agency Bagaar. I challenge you to try to navigate the site :-)

IoT Mesh Bridge Networking


IBM have an interesting tutorial on how to setup a mesh network using Raspberry Pis, which will allow IoT sensors to connect to the mesh network but also allow other devices to connect to the internet using the mesh network as a bridge.
