This is an amazingly well-done "how it's made" video, all about the process by which aluminum beverage cans get built. These cans are so common that we rarely look at them, but they're a marvel of engineering: to save material (important, when you're making hundreds of billions a year!) they're made almost as thin as paper, and when they're empty, they easily crumple to save space while recycling. Yet when full, they can support 6 atmospheres of pressure inside and are sturdy enough to stand on -- and it only takes a single pull of a tab to change one into the other.

+engineerguy does a fantastic job of explaining the whole story, with everything from example parts to animations that show exactly how the subtle steps work.

h/t +Jordan Peacock for finding this!

4-steps to getting a blank Android Wear watch face
As of Android Studio 1.1, we have added watch face template to Android Studio. So, a blank watch face you can customise is only a few clicks away! Before we begin, make sure that you have the latest version of the Android Support Repository. You can check via the Android SDK Manager. When you are ready, here’re the steps:
1. Start a new project or open your existing project
2. If your project do not already have an Android Wear module, create one! Select File > New Module…. In the wizard, select Android Wear as the module type and then select No Activity.
3. Right-click on the module name on the left hand side. Select New > Wear > Watch Face.
4. Select whether you want an analog or a digital watch face.
5. Done!
You will get a skeleton watch face which will take care of the basics for you like automatically adjust for time zones changes.

Just found this awesome LEGO fan magazine at my local newsagent. There goes my productivity...

I actually owned the spaceship - it was one of my favourite models.

Great store with lots of desks to explore all the products. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only downside: you cannot schedule Genius Bar appointments for multiple devices at once.
