Tony's Pick
I am generally against the development of pervasive surveillance in modern society, doubly so when it’s controlled by giant tech companies with a history of dubious ethics and an insatiable need for growth. On the other hand, doorbell cameras are just so useful! I recently opted for one from Ubiquiti because I own the footage and it’s stored on my local network (additional network appliance required). I’ve since gotten a few other products from UI and am pretty happy so far. It’s pricey stuff, but delivers excellent hardware and software quality.
Hands off my package, Kyle!

I saw the HackClub Sprig making the rounds this week. It’s an open-source (hardware + software) handheld gaming system with a JavaScript-based editor for making games. The first 430 teens to build a meaningfully playable game on the platform received a free kit, but the parts are all generally available to make your own.
If we ever get bored with the retro hipster Playdate market and want to pivot into games for TikTokers and Minecrafters, watch for us on Sprig.
