Video: If you experience ASMR, prepare to feel some intense pleasure watching this video of a guy repairing shoes. The machines pressing down, the cutting of the sole, the sanding, the stitching, the brushing of the glue. It’s a symphony of satisfying noises. It’s the only soundtrack you need.
Video: One man believes he has found the perfect solution to staying dry in the wet: fancy pants. Dan Bransfield’s case against umbrellas is a surprisingly strong one. They’re laughably ineffective, obtrusive, messy and unreliable.

But one look at this tiny blade, smithed by the person (or persons) behind Inspire To Make, and you’ll be hunting around for your own miniature tools to forge your own.
Video: Nobody makes a burger look better than pornburger master Matthew Ramsey. Each of his burgers are stunning works of art that you can almost taste and feel the savoury meat juice just by looking at them.
