Eye Exams & Motion Pictures
How many fingers am I holding up? ✌️
When was the last time you got your eyes checked?
If you can, you should get annual eye exams, especially if you wear glasses or contacts. Prescriptions expire and have to be renewed, but it’s pretty easy to forget about. Warby Parker is making it easier to access an eye exam from the comfort of your own home.

Have you ever wished that your photos could move and talk to you like they do in the Harry Potter books/movies?
A startup called Prynt is making that a reality. They’ve been manufacturing small, mobile printers that connect to your phone for a while, but this really takes it up a notch. The new printer, the Prynt Pocket, can print your videos and Live Photos – sort of. It will print a stagnant, normal image, but whenever you (or anyone else with Prynt’s app) scans the picture, they’ll be able to see the full video overlaid on the image.
As an added bonus, it retails for way less than I expected when I heard about it – just $149.99. Still pricey for a tiny printer, but pretty magical.
