What is it?

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: smaller than a bread box.

Another: edible (by humans).

A third: true color (i.e., not what an acorn looks like to a squirrel on LSD).

[via the current issue of the New Yorker whose photo essay "A New Silk Road" contains many pictures equally jaw-dropping. This is indeed going to be the Chinese century.]

Hair Coach Smart Brush


From the Wall Street Journal: 



Debuting at this year's CES, the Hair Coach, a smart brush developed by Nokia and Kerastase, is one of the year's weirder devices.

The WiFi-enabled brush is equipped with a microphone and sensors that allow it to not only track the quality of your strokes and movement, but also the health of your hair. 

When paired with the Hair Coach app, users receive a HairScore as well as a number of data points that would be impossible to digest on a daily basis.



Apply within.
