Not getting anywhere with those New Year’s resolutions? Wondering what’s in store to keep you entertained this year? Need something to spend those crisp Ang Pao dollars on after CNY? We’ve got you covered.
All hands on deck
It’s one thing to buy something with your hard-earned money, and quite another to make it with your own bare hands – the latter definitely provides a greater sense of ownership. Since it’s much more fun and fulfilling than trying to go to the gym more often, why not build your own tech as a new New Year’s resolution? Simply pick what interests you from our Projects Special on p41, and you won’t just be kept productively occupied for the rest of the year, you’ll have the deep satisfaction of owning tech that’s truly yours too. After all, how often can you say you made your own camera, or coded your own app?
