This is a comprehensive list and they did a great job of giving full disclosure on how they gathered and rated each one. Then they included the names of the next 51-100 to make sure I would get all ecstatic and share. Mission accomplished.

A Game Designer Explains the Counterintuitive Secret to Fun

At WIRED by Design, Bogost outlined his conception of fun. It’s not about effortless enjoyment, he argues, but instead about embracing the effort demanded in a given situation. If you’re mowing your lawn, you don’t make it fun by strapping an iPad to your lawnmower. Instead, you make it fun by taking the job seriously—you see how few rows you can take to cover the whole yard, how tightly you can make the turns.

“Fun is giving respect to something that doesn’t deserve it,” Bogost says. “Becoming infatuated with something for which infatuation seems impossible.” If you’re unconvinced, just think about golf. It’s a ridiculous premise and the source of untold frustration. And yet, after all these centuries, we’re still going back to the links.

This startup wants to bring sunlight indoors & make you healthier

If your home won’t fit more windows or a skylight, perhaps this is the next best thing. A startup called Sunn has developed a programmable LED light fixture that modulates light to mimic the sun’s rays throughout the day and time of year, potentially making its users feel healthier.

These 3D-printed lamps transform rooms with mesmerizing light and shadow.

This nugget spoke to me this morning:

The paradox seems to be, as Socrates demonstrated long ago, that the truly free individual is free only to the extent of his own self-mastery. While those who will not govern themselves are condemned to find masters to govern over them.
