This Device Tells You When to Workout, What to Eat and When to Have Sex!
If you’ve caught yourself wondering when we’re going to arrive at the future, well, wonder no more… With this new device, we’ve made it. Cue takes us years beyond monitoring our health as we know it today. The small device uses samples from your body, such as saliva or blood, to evaluate your health. Within minutes of giving your sample, information is sent to its corresponding app, where it tracks changes in your health from day to day, then advises prime times for exercise based on your schedule, suggests foods to incorporate into your diet and even has your doctor on speed dial for when things get real.
Cue has the ability to measure five key hormones and molecules in our bodies — testosterone, fertility, inflammation, vitamin D and influenza. Firstly, let’s look at how Cue measures vitamin D. Take a finger-prick worth of blood, put it in the reader and slide it in the Cue box. In almost no time, stats will show up on your smartphone, telling you your vitamin D levels compared to the day before and, more impressively, if you’re in need of some sunshine, Cue then evaluates your schedule and checks the weather to tell you the optimum time to go outside each day to soak up those rays.
When it comes to finding out if you have influenza, swipe the inside of your or your kiddie’s or significant other’s nose and give the sample to Cue, which will not only diagnose but will also check if there’s an outbreak in your area, warn loved ones and contact your doctor for a prescription.
If it’s fertility you want to know more about, Cue can track testosterone levels and provide tips on the best times to workout and what you should be eating to improve levels. For women, it tracks fertility hormones and sends alerts when your body is peaking, information that’s invaluable for anyone trying to have a baby.
So, in review, Cue creates a personal exercise plan and diet plan based on your body’s chemistry and then goes on to alert you when you’re at risk of getting sick. What’s easier than having an app tell you exactly what to eat when immune system is threatened? Or the exact time to get the most out of your workout based on hormones in your body? We can only wait wide-eyed to see the impact Cue will have on our everyday lives. If you want to be one of the first to find health through an app, Cue is currently available to preorder at a discounted price of $199.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
