Since I started writing, I now run a tech blog, which has just opened itself up to guest bloggers, and I write articles here on Medium, about various subjects that interest me and that don’t quite fit in over at The Detechtor. But it took me over a year to find the right balance and to take my writing seriously. Now, I’ve decided to take this a step further, as my school year comes to an end: I am now going to write something every day.
I started writing in April of last year, a couple of months into the…

Showering. Everybody does it (I think), but not necessarily the same way.
Most like hot showers, a few want it to burn (what’s that all about?) and others enjoy a refreshing cold shower.
I have discovered Contrast Showers, which allow me to enjoy both a hot and cold shower by alternating between the two. Trust me it's revolutionary, and here’s why.
Contrast showers, also known as contrast hydrotherapy, are showers in which you quickly change your body temperature from hot to cold and back again. This is done by alternating between hot and cold water about 2–4 times.
Renewable energy is now widely available and increasingly affordable, helping mitigate the climate crisis. However, due to the intermittency of certain sources that rely on factors such as wind or sunlight, renewable energy hasn’t reached its full potential, stopping it from completely replacing fossil fuels. Energy Vault, a Swiss startup, might have found a solution to this problem. They have developed a technology that uses kinetic energy and gravity to store renewable energy, whilst cutting waste, by storing it in a tower of bricks.
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have been in the news a lot recently, but not necessarily for the right reasons. With interest from major institutions such as JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs along with endorsements from tech titans like Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk, Bitcoin’s value has managed to go up more than 700% in the space of a year. However, Bitcoin energy consumption is raising concerns. Here’s how we could solve this problem.
We live in a noisy, stressful world; work, family and day-to-day issues can sometimes feel overwhelming. However, the world is also filled with beauty, nature, and music. It is the latter that the team at Portal Labs has tried to bring to their app: Portal. Featured as an “App Of The Day” on the App Store, the Portal app has now known increasing success and has become one of my favourite apps.
Launched in 2019, Portal Labs has a mission to “inspire the world to reconnect with nature — and help both people, and planet”. It does this by bringing…
Mankind has always strived to improve the way it travels across the surface of the earth. In trying to make travel faster and more efficient, supersonic travel was inevitable. Travelling faster than the speed of sound is very appealing, with speeds of over 1234.8 km/h, journey times would be slashed. Although commercial supersonic travel may seem in the distant future, it is important to remember that it has happened several times before, with the Concorde and the Tupolev Tu-144. …
Writing is hard. Even when that's all you’re doing.
Even when you’ve got time on your hands, coming up with new ideas to write about, staying consistent and motivated can be very challenging. Now imagine trying to write consistently whilst studying … Yep, it's a nightmare.
I started writing about a year ago, a couple of months into the pandemic
At that time, I was 16, in my first year of Lycée (French high-school) called 2nd (for some reason the french decide to count backwards when you get to lycée). …
With the App Store and Google Play Store libraries constantly growing, there are so many amazing fitness apps to choose from! Here’s a list of some of the best fitness apps that you should be downloading in 2021, covering categories such as cardio, workouts, and healthy eating!
Although Augmented Reality (AR) is often associated with gaming, it actually has many applications in the healthcare industry. Indeed, by superimposing computer-generated images onto reality, AR can provide both surgeons and patients with many useful tools. Let’s take a look at them, and how they can improve the healthcare industry.
Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR and VR) are terms that people often use interchangeably, but are in fact quite different. AR uses virtual objects to enhance the real world, whereas VR is an immersive experience in a simulated world that requires special hardware. …
