Nick here again with another kickstarter find. Today this find particularly interest me, as I am a skateboarder myself and see the potential behind this product. 
Pivot is an open source, motion tracking, Arduino based board that when attached to your skateboard can track foot placement and board rotation. Being open source and able to connect to mobile devices, the possibilities for practical and fun applications for skateboarders are endless.
The idea that I could play a game of S.K.A.T.E with my friend in Kansas, or share that I finally mastered the Kickflip with a network of friends is just the beginning. Pivot could turn your board in to a video game controller or even the paintbrush for digital art creations.  
I hope this innovative product continues to receive support and continues to evolve, I know I will be backing it! 

check out more at www.skatepivot.com  and visit their page on Kickstarter

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

This is so incredibly precious, this actually makes me tear up with happiness!
