Those are gorgeous AND cool looking watches, Cam!


Thanks, Mary. I LOVE my Velatura. This is what I want next. Watching them hand assemble it is truly amazing.

I don't get the appeal of hand assembly. (With regard to any product.)

I would rather have a cold, unfeeling machine build and test things I buy. Robots don't have bad days, don't stay out too late drinking, and don't get bored from repeating the same task day after day.

Me and cam have already have had our veggie-juice nerd-out on the fitness thread, but I did recently purchase a refurbished Blendtec. I use it every day, and has changed my health for the better. Breakfast smoothies in 1 minute with a press of a button, with less than 5 minutes of prep and cleanup (most of the time, if I don't make a complete mess).

Cheap, filling, healthy "meals". Like a broccoli/tomato/grape/spinach/flaxseed green smoothie. Or soup. It heats and cooks soup by the friction of the blades. Magnets, how do they work?!

You would be surprised. I see our maintenance people doing 're-teaches' on the robots in our plant all the time.
