Google Clips – Wireless Smart Camera

Google Clips – Wireless Smart Camera

Google has just released a new smart camera that you can set up in your home to capture those oft-forgotten or missed candid moments. “Google Clips is smart enough to recognize great expressions, lighting and framing. So the camera captures beautiful, spontaneous images. And it gets smarter over time.” The AI tech on this camera seems pretty fun. The more it recognizes a face or your pets the more it will take clips of that subject which means the quality of clips that you save will improve over time. The shots will save to your phone’s Clips app and you can edit them into moments using the amazing Google Photo’s app. This is just the perfect app for families who want to spend time IN the moment and not sit behind the screen snapping photos. Now you can laugh with your partner and capture the moment remotely as your toddler puts their legs over their head and mimicks farting while yelling “toot, toot, toot from the butt, butt, butt!” Wait…is that just in our house?

Have You Read the 2017 Newbery Medal Book?

Have You Read the 2017 Newbery Medal Book?

The Girl Who Drank The Moon by Kelly Barnhill is 2017’s winner of the prestigious Newbery Medal for children’s literature. If you have not read it please buy it for your whole family, it is really a stunning work of literature and art.

“Moonlight is magic. Ask anyone you like.” Barnhill’s story is also pure magic, distinguished by careful development of a complex plot and indelible evocation of unique characters. Love, heartbreak, hope, sorrow, and wonder all shine in exquisite, lyrical prose.
 
 “This compassionate, hopeful novel invites children everywhere to harness their power, and ask important questions about what keeps us apart and what brings us together”  Newbery Medal Committee Chair Thom Barthelmess.
We found the book impossible to put down and the whole family enjoyed the complex twisty turny story. You will not be disappointed in this modern classic. (Ages 10+ as a general rule.)
