Wearable tech has a lot of promise, but the endless parade of smartwatches from every company with the means to create one has diluted the field. One of the more fascinating projects that exists far outside of this box is Imogen Heap’s Mi.Mu Glove, a musical tool that allows musicians to create music without confining themselves to a computer.

Future NFL wide receiver Brandin Cooks is known for his speed. He recently made a name for himself with his mouth for comparing his skills to DeSean Jackson’s. Now Cooks is showing he has an incredible heart.
