The resulting video’s racked up more than 4,000 retweets on Twitter, and probably way more laughs.

Just to let you know, if you buy something featured here, Mashable might earn an affiliate commission.

There’s no doubt you’ve seen at least a few Instagram or Facebook posts that show off a collection of well-balanced, beautifully arranged meals for the week. Meal prepping is an art — as evidenced by the fact that it’s all over your feed.

Meal prepping has numerous benefits: it saves time and money, decreases food waste, and assists with portion control and a healthier diet. But no matter how great this all may sound, it’s intimidating to those who don’t know where to start. If you’re anything like me, you may feel like you need Kindergarten level directions on how to eat healthy (and actually enjoy it.) Read more…

The horror of discovering porn for the first time lives on in this video game



You are home. Alone. 

Your fingers rest on the keyboard. Paralyzed. The clock ticks, counting down your minutes. They are limited. Do you dare? 

I mean, how could you not?

You Must be 18 or Older to Enter is a text-based horror game about discovering porn for the first time as a kid in the ’90s. Actually, let’s rephrase: You Must be 18 or Older to Enter is an anxiety simulator capturing the universal experience of watching childhood die in the electric glow of your computer screen.

But there’s much more to this interactive fiction than just recreating the moment you realized the world was a frightening, exhilarating place you will never understand.  Read more…

HOPii is an all-in-one personal brewery that fits on your countertop

Hey, craft beer fans: unless you’re drinking fresh from the tank you don’t actually know what true craft beer is supposed to taste like. At least not according to Chris Shelton, Master Brewer at HOPii. He says that the bottling and distribution process introduces the three biggest beer-killers — oxygen, light, and uneven temperature — diminishing the quality of the beer you pick up in the store or order on draft at the pub.

Passenger Drone is a futuristic aircraft that has actually flown with passengers IRL



We’ve seen multiple flying car self-flying electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) concepts lately, as short air travel has been tabbed as a next-gen solution for urban transportation issues. But many of those crafts are still in the early design stages.

The latest company to debut its designs for a flying machine is Passenger Drone, which emerged from a three-year-long stealth mode to show off its two-seater prototype. The craft is slightly bigger than a small car and boasts 16 individual electric engines and rotors for zero-emissions air travel. 

The start-up has an edge on some of its bigger and better-known competitors, which include established companies like Airbus and Uber. Unlike many other VTOL designs, Passenger Drone has lived up to its name, showing off footage of test flights with human passengers.  Read more…
