Everyone’s home workshop will look different and it should as people have different needs for their own workshop, if you create it then it is completely tailored to you and your needs.

There are some things to consider when creating a home workshop, size is a big factor, you should try and find as much space as possible for your home workshop as if it’s too small you may struggle with some of the tasks you intended to complete in there. You also need to make sure that in the area that you’re going to create your home workshop you have enough light as during the winter months you won’t be able to work late in your home workshop if there is not sufficient lighting, it is also important that there are enough electrical outlets for you to plug in anything that you may need to use. Once you’ve found the perfect space for your home workshop then you need to get all the best kit to fill it with, keep on reading to find out what we would recommend kitting your home workshop out with.

Power Drill

A power drill is a staple tool in every home workshop, most projects that are undertaken in a home workshop require holes and screws and a drill can create these much quicker than you can by hand. Purchasing a high-quality power drill that suits your needs is one of the best investments that you can make for your home workshop. There are many different drills you can get that all suit different jobs and vary in price so figure out your budget, figure out your needs and do your research and purchase a drill based on this. Cordless drills are currently the most popular and there are usually cordless drills that will suit any budget.

Stud Finder

When you start to store all your kit in your garage you’ll want to keep the floor space as empty as possible meaning organizers that hang off the wall are usually the best choice for storage in a home workshop. A stud finder will be really helpful to you here as they have a metal sensing function, this will allow you to see where the nails are that are holding up your drywall. Again there range in price but from looking at reviews even the $15 stud finders generally work pretty well on drywall, ceilings, and on thick plastered walls.

Hammer

A hammer is just as important as a drill, a hammer has two functions and one of these is removing screws with the claw-shaped end, this is another vital function within a home workshop so make sure you get a good at least 16-ounce hammer.

Other Equipment

There are many other things that you will need to kit out your home workshop, including but not limited to, a 25-foot tape measure will meet all your measuring needs, screwdrivers, a four in one screwdriver is ideal, a multimeter, and to find the right one you can use the multimeter guide. Finally, one of the most important pieces of kit you need is safety glasses which you should wear the whole time you’re in your workshop to prevent any damage to your eyes.

The 6 Most Profitable Free-To-Play Games Ever Made

For many years it was believed that if you didn’t have the money, you couldn’t be a gamer. Consoles and PCs are extremely pricey and games are even more so. For those of you that want to get involved in the gaming community but can’t afford to pay for some of the newer and pricier games, you may feel disheartened. However, if you are lucky enough to have access to a console or PC, you’re in luck. Among the long list of expensive games that are being released every year, some kind of companies has looked out for those among us that are unable to afford these games and released plenty of free-to-play games. A lot of people are hesitant to get invested in these games as their price may suggest a lack of quality, however many of these games could go against the rest on the market and remain popular.

 

But, with all of these games being free, how do the companies manage to profit?

A lot of the games that are free to play manage to make money through several routes. First of all, a lot of the free to play games that are available on the market may offer customizable character skins, which are often purchasable at a small price. They also use a lot of focus on advertising and ingame purchasing to allow them to continue to update their game and maintain the quality.  But which free to play games are profiting the most?

 

Fortnite

Everyone has heard of Fortnite. Over the last few years, this game has really pushed itself into the spotlight and has really earned its place as one of the most popular games on the market. Fortnite is a classic example of a free to play game done well. It is hard to differentiate Fortnite from some of the more expensive pay to play games on the market right now and there are no monetary limitations. The main way that Fortnite makes a large margin of its profit is through the sale of a ‘battle pass’. The battle pass allows players to advance in the game and win cool skins and harvesting tools that really make them stand out from other players. Fortnite also does a lot of collaborations with performers, which allows them to gain money from advertising.

 

League of Legends

League of Legends has been around for over a decade and has been an integral part of a lot of people’s childhood. A lot of people wonder how the game has managed to survive all of these years and remain so popular without any monetary gain, but this is in fact not the case. Though you are under no pressure at all to put any money into the game, there are ways in which you can spend money to further your experience. It is impossible to know just how many skins are in league of legends, so there is bound to be one that appeals to you. The game allows you to use real-life money to buy in-game currency, which can be used to purchase these skins along with other items.

 

Player Unknown’s Battleground

Though PubG used to be a pay to play the game, a few years ago it joined the list of games that are available to play for free. This battle royale style game has been very popular among gamers for years and allows you to test your reactions and accuracy in high-pressure situations. You can learn how to work as part of a team or take on your enemies single-handedly.

 

Unturned

Unturned may not be as popular as it once was, but it still remains to be one of the most successful free to play games to be created. Unturned takes the magic of all of your favorite PVP zombie games and combines it with the simplistic appearance of games such as Minecraft. Unturned has never required money to play and has continued to update and move with the times, which its cult following has loved. Though you have never been required to spend money on the game, you can invest in interesting gun skins and clothing for your character.

 

Among us

Among us is one of the newer games on the market but it has really made an impact on the gaming community. This game allows you to play both teams as both an impostor or crewmate. You can either complete difficult tasks or go out of your way to sabotage them, either way, you are bound to have a good time. This game is completely free to play, however, there are ways that you can use your real money to help the developers. You can buy pets to run around with you that really adds to the fun elements of the game.

 

Pokemon Go

This game differs from the rest of the games due to the fact it is a mobile game, but there is no denying that it is an extremely successful free to play the game. Pokemon go allows you to travel around in real-time and discover pokemon hiding around your city and battle other trainers. This game has been around for a few years and has never required any monetary investment. However, it is possible to put some money into the game to skip past pesty wait times that you may encounter.

How I Turned my Hobby Into a Million-Dollar Industry

Slime videos and ASMR channels are a hugely saturated niche on YouTube. There are thousands of channels that boast the most satisfying slime videos; with new colors, sprinkles, foam, polystyrene balls, and other aesthetically pleasing add-ins. ASMR channels are booming with different creators using their own personal flair to bring new subscribers to their channel. From role-playing, such as going to the hairdresser, to anthropomorphized teeth taking themselves to the dentist, ASMRists have it all.

These content creators found ways of monetizing their favorite hobbies, sharing it with others, starting an online trend that never lost steam, which created the million-dollar industry it is today.

Here are some examples of such fame, and what it is about their channels that made their hobby so rich.

 

 

Slime videos

Lena Slime is a YouTuber who, of course, works with slime. What’s interesting about Lena Slime’s niche, is their paring with ASMR. This kind of extra niches draws subscribers from both the slime and ASMR channels, giving them a wider base and more of a chance to reach larger audiences. Many of their videos also involve makeup destruction, which is another online fad, and again draws more subscribers to their channel.

 

Combining so many different niches in one will bring a larger audience to your channel and seems to be something Lena Slime has conquered. Each of these niches stemmed from hobbies people decided to share with others, and over time, with more and more people creating similar channels, the industry began to boom. Now, most people I know just buy views on youtube when first starting off their channels. This gives their channel traffic and is a great way to create fame for their name and launch their hobby into a career.

 

 

Nastya Slime is another slime channel but, unlike Lena Slime, they focus more on “traditional” slime videos. Even though Nastya Slime has fewer niches attached to their channel, they still have a huge following of 1.25 million subscribers, and their latest video, which is only five hours old, already has 75,829 views. And their videos are relatively simple! Their formula seems to be having a bowl of slime which they add many different things to; makeup, glitter, colored powders, lip balms, and other fun items. However, this simple niche has captured millions of viewers from all over the world, as well as inspired others to create their own channels depicting their slime hobby. So, not only has this hobby been monetized, but it has also gone viral.

 

Subscribers are important but can matter less once some fame has been accumulated. For example, where Lena Slime has 4.92 million subscribers compared to Nastya Slime’s 1.25 million, Lena Slime’s latest video, only two hours old, has 12,900 views, compared to Nastya Slime’s latest video with 75,829 views. Subscribers clearly aren’t everything.

 

 

ASMRists

ASMR is an internet sensation that took off years ago, and stands for ‘Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response’. It is most popularly characterized by soft speaking or whispering, soft sounds magnified by hyper-sensitive microphones, inaudible whispering, hand movements to the camera, binaural sounds and so much more. This hobby became hugely popular on YouTube and has since migrated to all other social media platforms, like Facebook and Instagram. Those who plan to join the ASMR community, however, will find they’re in for a tough go at becoming one of the well-known ASMRists. ASMR has been popular for so long, there are hundreds of different niches. Those who do find themselves reaching the top of the industry, though, will realize it is a very lucrative hobby to be a part of, as well as being a very satisfying hobby to have.

 

 

So, what’s really the trick to turning your hobby into a million-dollar industry? Find your niche, broadcast as soon as you can, and create fame for your brand! Good luck!

In the Bag: All the Free Swag You get From Attending PAX

PAX is one of the most highly anticipated gaming events of the year, every year. You could argue it is a bigger gaming event than E3 itself. Mainly because PAX is run as an expo that anyone can attend, not just the press. So it is open to a lot more people and reaches a wider player base.

And because of that, there is always more going on at PAX than anywhere else. Companies flock to have their new games trialed at the expose. Merch stores set up stalls to peddle their gaming merch and some of the highest prize e-sports tournaments take place here.

But one of the best parts of attending PAX, other than the massive display of amazing costumes you will get to see, is the free swag you receive upon entry. The PAX Swag bags are legendary. Always filled with some of the best stuff. And while PAX 2020 isn’t happening. We have a good idea of what will be in the bags come PAX 2021.

 

Wristbands

One of the most numerous goodies you will receive during your time at pax is wristbands. Of course, this wont be plain wristbands, but rather a myriad of different gaming wristbands touting popular catchphrases, gaming characters, or designs. Or they might simply be a goodie handed out by a small business hoping to get your attention. It never hurts to give them a check out if that’s the case.

 

In-Game Content

A lot of games offer exclusive PAX related cosmetics for their games. League of Legends always has a few PAX skins. Fortnite and PUBG. Dota 2. All the bit titles seemingly have codes waiting in the swag bags allowing you to redeem them and display loudly and proudly that you attended PAX. These codes always cause quite a stir and become a rare commodity for the secondary market.

 

Magic Decks

Wizards of the Coast loves to get new players into Magic The Gathering. And they are always hoping to get old fans rehooked. So they will hand out demo decks as if they are nothing. This is why nearly every PAX swag bag in PAX history has had a Magic the Gathering demo deck in it. These decks are designed to be played with then and there against other decks of other participants.

 

Hats

Hats have become quite a meme among the gaming community. Thanks to Team Fortress 2 and its non-stop obsession with headware, gamers everywhere have fallen in love with hats and it seems they will never fall out of love with them. Which is why a PAX goody bag will almost always contain a free hat as well. Often sporting the PAX logo, it can always be seen being worn by a large amount of attending guests.

 

Discount Codes

You know how every swag bag ever is always filled with a large wad of leaflets. And chances are that most of these leaflets are nothing more than adverts. But sometimes you will find these leaflets actually contain some discount codes for various nerdy sites and shops. And sometimes these discounts are quite good. So, we recommend you check all the leaflets. This might be annoying and seem like a waste of time but trust it, it’ll be worth it.

While this isn’t everything you will most likely get, it covers all the items that stay consistent between years. Sometimes a free shirt or a bag of candy is thrown into the mix, but those are always dependant on the expo sponsors for that year.

 

 

Are We Becoming Too Reliant on New Tech In the Workplace?

With all the new technology that comes out on a yearly basis, it can be very easy to find yourself becoming more dependent on gadgets, rather than being more reliant on your personal skill level. Within the workplace your own experience level should be valued more than the usefulness of technology as becoming too reliant can have devastating effects in the event that your technology fails you or malfunctions. New technology can make life much easier which is what makes it so desirable in a stressful workplace, if a process can be made easier through using the new technology that is available then it makes sense that so many companies choose to invest in the technology industry.

 

Industries like construction and offices, in particular, are known to use a lot of techs to help make their lives easier but, it is vital you do not become too reliant on technology and forget the fundamental skills you have which made you a suitable candidate for the job role. Looking at the two industry examples of construction and the office as a workplace, it can clearly be seen that many employees are becoming too dependent.

 

Offices

Offices can be stressful places with many menial tasks that could be simplified with the use of tech, in this case saving your employees time and allowing them to work on the more complex tasks is definitely a positive thing. However, in the event that something was to go wrong with your office technology the company cannot afford to come to a standstill and your staff should still be able to work to the same standard. Although technology does simplify many tasks your workforce should still have proficient knowledge of how to use and maintain the device, rather than becoming dependent on the use of technology within the workplace your technology should be an aid to make your work life more relaxing instead of doing the work for you.

 

The constant release of new technology makes it hard to resist, but in any professional situation, it would be much more useful to be more reliant on your skills rather than technology. Technology is great until something goes wrong with it and if you are someone who becomes too dependent on technology you are going to struggle in a situation where you are required to do things manually.

 

Construction

Another industry that has become extremely reliant on new technology would have to be construction, as construction workers have to complete a wide range of menial, physically demanding tasks it makes sense that construction workers would take advantage of new technology that would save them from physical exertion. However, much like within the office workplace if a construction worker was to rely on technology too much they may find that their physical skills deteriorate through lack of experience. This is something that should be avoided as something like construction that requires skill and precision requires more than technology to be completed to the best standard.

 

Another example within construction where people may become too reliant on technology would have to be welding, welding technology has come a long way with precise automatic welding machinery being very commonly used in construction work. Many prefer to use the more dated models of welding machinery in order to have more control over their work, a great example of a traditional welding device can be found here at https://www.weldingmania.com/mig/lincoln-180hd-review/, great for beginners this device allows users to learn the basic processes of welding which is the knowledge that can be used throughout a workers career.

Gamer History: The Incredible Rise of Mobile Gaming!

Whether we’re waiting for our transport or we’re looking for a quick and easy way to pass the time. There is always an opportunity for us to get entertainment right at our fingertips. Our phones have become a necessary aspect of our livelihoods and part of the appeal is having multiple aspects of our needs met with only one handy dandy device. Technology has become such a massive part of modern society that most people you meet on a daily basis will have a mobile phone in their pocket or in their hand. Not only do phones let you stay in contact with your friends and family or stay on top of your schedule, but they are also able to keep you entertained through the multitude of games available on the app store. It is undeniable that even in the last decade, there has been a massive surge in the number of mobile gamers, partly due to the rise of bigger and more complex games being made available on the mobile platform. But, how did mobile gaming become so popular so quickly? Here are some of our thoughts.

 

Why Are They So Successful?

Well, after paying so much for a smartphone many people are hesitant to spend more money on added content within the phone. This is why mobile game developers decided to change up the status quo for gaming. Traditionally, when it came to getting a new game, you would have to save up all your pocket money (if you weren’t lucky enough to get it for Christmas) and take a trip to your local gaming store and fork out around 50 dollars or pounds for the newest release. Nowadays, however, that isn’t always the case. The reason many people are choosing to play mobile games is in part due to the business models created by the developers of the games.

 

Introducing; ‘Freemium’-ware instead of premium-ware. This idea encourages the developers to list the apps and games as free; but the trick is, the profit can then made for the developers through the use of in-app transactions. In-app transactions are when purchasing content within the game through microtransactions after having downloaded the game itself for free. This practice has, however, also shown a rise in ‘gambling’ for many players; these often come in the form of loot-boxes and other content in which the reward is unknown until after the purchase has been made. The extent of this idea is still up for debate, however, it has been such a controversial marketing practice that it has even gotten so worrying for some parents and other players that the legitimacy of the in-game ‘gambling’ has become a subject of debate for the European governments.

 

The growth of the complexity of mobile games has been exponential. Gone are the days of playing Snake on your Nokia brick, nowadays there are more games than you could ever hope to play in your lifetime all at the tips of your fingers. From smaller apps like angry birds or Flappy Bird (RIP) to much larger and multiplayer games like Fortnite or Call of Duty. Interestingly, the creators of Fortnite have recognized the success from the sheer number of downloads of their game on the mobile platform that they have begun to take on the vendors (Apple/Google Play Stores) in legal battles for the right to be able to sell their app as its own separate downloadable entity. Currently, the Fortnite developers are being made to give the app stores like Apple or Google Play 30% of their potential profit just for hosting the download of the app.

 

Variety is Everything

Whether you’re just wanting to pass some time while you wait for your bus or whether you’re looking for some hardcore gaming you can take with you anywhere, chances are, there is something for you on the app store. Not only that but if you’re wanting to get into any of the more in-depth games and aren’t sure where to start, there are plenty of online resources for all sorts of popular mobile games like https://afk.guide/ for you to gain some amazing insight on the best mobile gaming leagues and tips to help you top those league tables in no time.

 

Mobile gaming has arguably pretty much ended handheld gaming. Very few people are playing their PSP or 3DS and have chosen instead to get a lot of their gaming fix from their phones. Considering that mobile gaming has gone from being played on one and half-inch black and white screens to nowadays being played on hardware that even rivals modern home theatre equipment, it’s no wonder why so many people are happy to game on their phones. Many mobile games are now played on premium O-LED displays and use Dolby Atmos sound which creates a mobile gaming experience previous generations could only dream about.

 

But better displays and incredible variety aren’t the only things contributing to the success of mobile gaming. Many mobile gamers love the opportunity to play any number of beautiful or heart-wrenching games made by potentially small or unknown developers for such a small price. To this end, Apple has foregone the idea of making their own console and have instead created their own subscription service called Apple Arcade, which is designed to give a platform to indie game creators selected by Apple. It gives those using IOS devices a unique experience and allows them to discover games that they may not have originally thought to play.

 

Smartwatch Needs

4 Features that Every Smartwatch Needs

Wearing time on your wrist isn’t a novel idea; the ticking needles on the dial set the duration for you to complete every important task in life. Organizing your life according to the moving time should be hard, but technology never fails to fulfil your needs. Smartwatches were made for many other reasons other than the style it emanates. Life is made easier with these watches, with not just time running on your wrist but also the weather, day and date, the settings of your smartphone, and whatnot.

With many such features having been compacted into those circular and square dials, you are likely to be running ahead of time. How better could your life get? However, you need to know that as technology develops, replicas and low-quality products are also manufactured to be sold in the market. Understanding the best products is important to purchase the right one for your hand. Here are some of the features that every smartwatch needs.

 

1. Apps

It is a fact that the full potential of smartwatches has not been leveraged yet, but in the years to come, every manufacturer will make sure to tweak the drawbacks in their previous products. Apps need to have a wider area to act upon than in the current watches. There are a few watches that work well with the apps that we need the most in these days. As you link your watch to your smartphone, better scopes can be explored.

Smartwatches from Samsung, Apple, and LG are under high sales in most stores these days, and all of them have a wide array of apps that can be accessed from the Android and Apple app stores. Although most of these watches offer improved features, there is a lot more that can be incorporated into those compact dials. Most of these companies are aiming at bringing all these necessary changes in their upcoming models.

2. Cellular Connectivity

Some of the most modern models support a SIM card of their own to have independent cellular connectivity. The older models do not boast this feature, making them not worth the money. When all smartwatches tackle this issue, cellular connectivity wouldn’t be a hurdle anymore. With the independence of the watches, the apps can function on its own. Making calls from your smartwatch may not be a great experience; however, you can use it for the basic data connectivity.

3. Battery Life

Battery Life

Pebble is one smartwatch company that overcame the issue of short battery life by providing around 6-7 days of functioning. While the other companies such as Apple, Samsung, and Asus are only offering 2-3 days of battery life, smartwatches such as Pebble are making money out of this certain feature that stands out.

4. Design

One of the greatest challenges for the manufacturers is to make the design of smartwatches as close to the traditional watches as possible. Although many of the smartwatches that are being sold today have the qualities of the other watches, they are not able to meet the standards of the design set by the legendary companies in the business.
