It’s Friday…which means it’s time for the Digitales Digest! It’s our weekly roundup of some of the most interesting articles we’ve discovered and shared on social media over the past few days – because we love reading cool things, and we’d hate for you to miss out on a single thing!
Consider this your Friday guide to some of the web’s best links…
Round the twist
What does the way you draw a circle say about you? More than you think, actually! The people at Google created an online game that asked people to draw shapes and images, and used that data to compare how people around the world draw circles. The results will have your head spinning!
Oh no, Lego
Have you ever woken up, bleary-eyed, to find you’ve – err, “accidentally” – purchased two metric tonnes of Lego bricks on eBay the previous night? No, it hasn’t happened to us either. However, this is exactly what happened to Jacques Mattheij.
Once the Lego motherlode arrived on his doorstep, Mattheij faced the monumental task of sorting through it all. Using a computer, cameras, an old treadmill, bits of furniture, wood…and, of course, Lego, he built a complicated, Lego-sorting machine. Here it is in action – click here to find out more!
When we found out about the Dog Photographer of the Year award, we were pretty excited.
Sadly, the Dog Photographer of the Year award isn’t awarded to the best photo taken by a dog, but the best photo taken by a human of a dog – which is the next best thing!
These pupper paw-traits have us wagging our tails in glee. Here are just some of our many, many favourites. Prepare to go “aww!” in three, two, one. Click here to take a look at the rest!
Yesterday was World Yoga Day…which had us wondering what would happen if we combined two of our favourite things: yoga and reading? Luckily, Do You Yoga has the answers, with seven yoga poses that are absolutely perfect for bookish types!
On the Digitales Blog…
This week, things got a little weird when we reviewed eel-good hit of the year, A Cure for Wellness.
Next week, we’ll have another movie featuring a giant castle on a hill – the new, live action version of Beauty and the Beast! Keep an eye on the blog on Monday for our review. And join us on Wednesday, when we’ll be taking a look at our top ten new releases for July.
It’s going to be a big, big week. Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you then!
