Tom Scott  posted a video testing the Internet rumor that claims the numbers on toaster dials correlate to minutes of cooking time.
"There's been a "Life Pro Tip" going around the internet lately saying that the numbers on toaster dials are actually minutes. I was so sure it was false. Oh, I was so sure. I got four toasters set to "2", and I had one take to film it all in a back room at my office. This is that one take."

Smart insoles Stridalizer is a Kickstarter project for a device called the Stridalyzer that aims to help runners improve themselves.
That way users can keep concentrating on their run and will only need to pay attention to their form if and when the app alerts them to it. The Stridalyzer will also be able to monitor the stress placed on your foot and knee in real-time, so if you’re wondering why you’re starting to feel tired or feeling any signs of pain, the app should be able to tell you why.
"We have designed our solution to continue to monitor your run, and interrupt you only when it needs to “alert” you with some important information or quick guidance. For example, if you start persistently overpronating, or if your footstrike pattern changes, you will get a visual as well as an audio alert – this way you can keep your eyes on the trail and still get the information or advice that’s relevant for you – WHEN it becomes relevant!
If you are trying to buildup your pace or find the optimal rhythm for your next marathon, Stridalyzer helps you monitor and track the three fundamental performance parameters: Stride Rate, Stride Length and the most elusive – Ground Contact Time. Using our patent-pending technology, we can measure ground contact time extremely accurately
