2. Quadrocopter Lily Camera for air selfies

We are fans of the stylish Lily Camera. A Selfie while racing or kayaking, recorded from the air: The Lily Camera is thrown in the air by the user, it follows him and captures his adventures.

3. Mom tests your website

The best way to test the usability of your website is to ask the elders. Here you get some motherly UX advice.

EDI is the first index to measure how well countries’ national laws protect environmental democracy rights.
