Just downloaded this, clever app that allows you to use one iOS device as a camera remote and viewfinder for another. Could be very useful when out and wanting to take family photos etc.
No doubt Apple will come out with a watch or something soon that'll do the same but until then....

Wearable tech is a big area of innovation right now and something I'm fascinated with, but how about a monitor that attaches to your babies clothes and can track their temperature, breathing, heart rate?
Taking parents worries to another level?

I'd rather have a jacket that adjusted automatically to my arm length and contained an automatic drying function if it got wet.

Brighten up your Monday with the uplifting experience of 6 dad bloggers hitting the high notes. Surely the real Christmas no. 1?

Having managed to progress 38 and three quarter years without ever seeing a panto, with the exception of the Cbeebies Panto on the telly, I've now seen two in a week and am pretty confused. The first we saw was Aladdin and didn't contain a single celeb. It ...

I'm in the 'it's all a little weird and freaky' camp. Surely the modern day Chucky doll?
 
Elf on the shelf - a fab thing to do or just another win for Mother Guilt? Do you feel under pressure to spend hours and loads of money to create the prefect Christmas? Is the elf on the shelf thing just another thing to add to you feeling like a crap mum if you don't do it?

This week we have been reading One Snowy Night by Nick Butterworth and we made some cute woodland animals out of toilet rolls to go along with our reading.

The wearables market is definitely one of the more interesting places right now, lots of innovation and new uses for technology.

From counting your reps to critiquing your form these exercise clothes prove that wearable tech is getting smarter.

Something uplifting and inspiring for this grey Wednesday. Take a couple of minutes to watch the trailer for this amazing movie and I would encourage all of you to try and see the full movie if you have chance.

To vest or not to vest that is today's important question. Seriously considering getting some to wear under shirts at work but probably not the ones that do up between the legs :)
