    Looks like Assembly reborn! (RIP –

    Always thought it was a fantastic concept and for the most part it worked. Except it was pre-blockchain years and the earnings/payment part of it never really came together.

    Hope this one has better success!

    This is so fantastic – good find! Can finally build my own Starship Enterprise

    Finally. A bag that will allow me to move to Brooklyn, grow a beard, drink single origin pour overs, and paint abstract wacky illustrations. Such a good cause. Ordering 10 now.

    The app itself is a treat to use as well - really clever modular design system.

    Changes the life plan a little... Am a UK citizen living in Amsterdam & working for a US company. Although it will take a few years for the immigration policy to change, am pretty frustrated we just lost the right to freely live in any EU nation.

    The depressing silver lining is that with the UK plummeting into a recession perhaps London will turn into a more affordable place to live (or so I hope...)

    I've been raving to people about this product page and illustration style since I first saw you guys testing it a few months ago. So refreshing to see a product not use the exact same repetitive, geometric, grid-based line illustrations that 1,000 other brands rely on. Aside from the style, they're spot on explanations of the product - gets even better on each individual product page.

    I'd echo a few others to just add a bit more contrast / divisions between sections. And right-aligned header on the home page feels odds.

    Overall this knocked it out of the park though. IMHO.

    Solved by @alexhermann on Twitter

    I was forgetting to expand the live edges (Object > Expand...)

    Now that would be useful - but at an even smaller scale than showing your "feedback wanted" section to all Dribbble members. Would want small groups of people you know / trust be able to see your WIP section. Eg. an internal team at company (much like Wake). But also show it to peers you've met in other contexts who could offer advice. So... now we just need someone to build it :D

    Jawbone's app is slightly better. And it does do good sleep tracking. I had one. But it broke 2 months later. Which, if you check out the reviews on Amazon, is an incredibly common occurrence. Too common. Fitbit has some flaws but seems like the hardware is a much better bet.

    Perfect - I've had a Charge since October and my competitor list has been sadly empty. Plus most of the fitbit rewards system is unusable without social challenges - curious to see how the whole badge system actually functions.
