It’s hard to argue with the sentiment here. As I’m sure you’ve experienced, being around a whiner, complainer or frequent frowner is tough. It reminds me of advice that someone a lot smarter than me once said, it’s so important to surround yourself with positive people who challenge you in really great ways. It’s so true and this design is a great reminder. Hugs and smiles trump whiners and complainers any day of the week. Grab it for $15 here.
If you’re new to our mixtapes, this month’s edition stays true to form. You’ll hear new jams, oldies and some of our super talented friends that maybe don’t get a ton of press, but make our lives a whole lot better. Pop on those headphones and dig in!
Footsteps can power the world. Seriously, this is really exciting. What started off as a Kickstarter campaign, the concept “harnesses the kinetic energy from footsteps and converts it into renewable electricity. By stepping, jumping, or hopping on a ‘pavegen floor tile’, users create clean, off-grid electricity used to power multiple applications – from lighting, to interactive learning displays and charging points.” Very, very cool.

We’ve all done this, wasted hours of company time playing this classic. Now, thanks to artist Evan Roth, we can relive all the glory with a physical recreation of Solitaire.exe. This pixel by pixel classic is currently sold out but hopefully us nerds can all write in and get it back up in the shop. It’s about the only thing reviving from Windows 98.
