HUG

HUG is an app that allows you to send a remote “hug” that people can feel. Dubbed the worlds first emoji you can feel. Doesn’t beat the real thing of course, but I guess if I was halfway around the world my mom would appreciate the gesture, or be freaked out about putting her cell phone against her heart for too long due to cell phone radiation. Either way it’s the thought that counts and fake hugs are better than no hugs at all, I suppose.

Go F#@king Do It

“Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.” — Wayne Gretzky

Go F#@king Do It helps you reach your goals by making you put your money where your mouth is. It’s very simple on purpose, you simply enter a goal, a deadline, and the amount you’ll pay if you don’t hit your goal by then and you pick a friend (called a supervisor) who will check if you actually did it. If they say you have, everything is fine and you are not charged. If they say you haven’t you are charged the amount you set. (assuming your supervisor is honest, and if they’re not it kind of defeats the point.)

So who does the money go to? The founder of the site, of course! And that in itself is supposed to be a part of the incentive to hit your goals as having the money go to the supervisor (your friend) or a charity would decrease the pain threshold.

Go Fucking Do It is Nike’s mantra on steroids, so go and get ‘er done folks!

Magic

 

Magic is a text message based service that allows you to get whatever you want on demand with no hassle (as long as it’s not illegal of course!).

Magic has trained operators standing by 24/7 to answer all of your requests. You simply send them a text message, and they’ll get you what you want by ordering what you need from the appropriate service (e.g. DoorDash, Instacart, Postmates, etc.), and dealing with them for you so you just automatically get what you want, like magic

I’m impressed and I think Houdini would be as well.
