Day Maker

Mornings suck. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. The first thing you hear are those soul-crushing beeps of your alarm clock. Just the sound of your alarm at any point during the rest of your day will send a shiver down your hunched over spine. The guys at HabitCo are trying to change that whole “Maybe I can just call out sick?” feeling with Day Maker. We have to admit, the alarm-meets-toaster design is a bit bizarre and quirky, but if it helps us get the day going, we’re down. Set the alarm on your iPhone in either the standard iPhone clock or Day Maker app and push it down like you would a piece of whole wheat. When it pops up, so will you (or snooze by pushing it back down like if you wanted some extra burnt toast). No word yet on how it cooks our bacon.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
