If you haven’t heard of Twitch yet, now is the perfect time to get into the popular streaming site. Lately, the video game streaming portal has expanded its borders to offer non-gaming content. This month, Twitch might just become your haven if you’re a Koreanovela fan.

Since its inception in 2011, Twitch has focused heavily on video gaming. The platform allows streamers to broadcast themselves playing their favorite games, often for money. Throughout the years, Twitch began to allow non-gaming streams on the site like talk shows, art shows, and even people eating.

Currently, this non-gaming initiative included an entertainment-focused stream called TwitchPresents. Across its run, TwitchPresents has broadcasted live marathons of everyone’s favorite shows like Saturday Night Live, Power Rangers, and Bob Ross’ The Joy of Painting. Last month, the channel hosted the entirety of the classic Doctor Who seasons.

This month, the channel will represent a vastly new demographic — Korean drama fans. From now until August 25, TwitchPresents will broadcast favorites like My Sassy Girl, Boys Over Flowers, and Missing Nine. In total, it will show 254 episodes from 26 shows.

The schedule will start every Wednesday in August, 10pm Pacific Time. Currently, viewers can watch only from the US, Canada, and Latin America. For more details, you can check out schedules on TwitchPresents’ official channel.

These new Ikea curtains fight indoor pollution by filtering air

Talk about being functional!

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.
