Dear Future Generations

Hi there,

today just a short post about a very inspiring video of Prince Ea who says sorry to future generations. I just wanted to share the video because he has a lot of right points in this poem/rap.

The Ocean Cleanup

Compared to Nike+ or other similar sports tracking apps you have the possibility to get detailed data to every muscles group. This is possible because of the 100 % machine-washable technical gym clothes. The clothes include sensors which monitor the individual muscle activity.
