Android P has just been unveiled as Android Pie and while the whole tech world is celebrating the latest Android operating system release, I am left hungry and craving — what else — pie!

Since I’m a DIY type of gal, I decided to fix this pie-shaped hole inside of me by learning how to make this delectable dessert. A quick online search later, I am left with a number of recipes and an even stronger desire for this sweet, savory treat. I’ve compiled all of them here so we can collectively drool over them and attempt to make the dish so we can finally, finally put it in our tummies.

You’re welcome, ladies.

These new Ikea curtains fight indoor pollution by filtering air

Talk about being functional!

Published

Ikea has just announced groundbreaking technology that will not only add to your home decorating or homemaking ventures, as the brand has been apt to do; it will also help keep your living space cleaner by purifying indoor air.

This is Ikea’s Gunrid curtain and it works just like a plant: It breaks down harmful pollutants when it gets in contact with light. The fabric itself has undergone “mineral-based surface treatment” which enables it to destroy common indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde and odor. And since the tech is in the fabric, future products aren’t, in theory, limited to just curtains.

Unknown to most, indoor air pollution is a big deal with some living spaces found to have conditions five times worse than other parts of the world and a higher death toll than outdoor pollution. Mauricio Affonso, Product Developer at Ikea Range & Supply says, “We are creating an affordable and space-saving air purifying solution that also makes the home more beautiful.”

Ikea hopes to put these Gunrid curtains on shelves by 2020.
