Kintsugi – Embracing The Flawed

kintsugi-s

Kintsugi is the Japanese technique of repairing pottery, in which the flaws and imperfections are celebrated, rather than hiding them. Contrasting, gold-filled cracks produce stunning results.

Help For A Water-Damaged Phone

Water-DamageThe Telegraph reported –

Oliver Murphy, a 20-year-old inventor turned entrepreneur has devised an ingenious system for bringing phones that have been damaged by liquids back to life. “When I was 13, I used to repair phones,” he explained. “I’d buy batches of broken ones off eBay, fix them up and sell them on again. I did that for four years.” Mr Murphy came across hundreds of water-damaged phones and decided to find a solution. “Most people don’t understand why phones break when they get wet,” he said. “It’s not actually the water, it’s the minerals and deposits in the water which attach to the phone component.”After experimenting with a variety of cleaning agents, Mr Murphy finally landed on a special solution that removed these deposits and left the phone as good as new. He launched his new product, Reviveaphone, in July. Within weeks, he was selling 200 a month through his website. His product, costing £14.99, contains a pouch, a tray and a “secret” solution. The damaged phone is dropped into the pouch, submerged in the solution for seven minutes, and then left to dry on the tray for 24 hours. “A patent is pending,” he said.
