Happy New Year 🎉 and a huge thanks to everyone for reading this newsletter each month. Over the holiday period, The Creator Club passed 4k+ subscribers. This newsletter has allowed me to explore all of my curiosities in the world of tech and I couldn’t be happier that others are following me on this journey. I feel incredibly lucky to have each and every one of you on board.
The holiday period was surprisingly productive for me. I had a backlog of tasks to get through and managed to get through the following worth noting:

It’s been a while since I featured anything about MSCHF, but they are back with another fascinating online stunt. Whether you agree with this stunt or not you gotta admit they do make the internet fun.
This thread by Colin Landforce explains how MSCHF bought an original Andy Warhol for $20,000 and made 999 exact forgeries.
They were mixed with the original and sold 1,000 pieces that *might be a real Warhol* for $250 each netting them $250k from a $20k purchase. Check the thread out and if you haven’t heard of them before check out this NY Times article.

That’s $250k 🤌🏼

⚡️ Flashback
This month I’m going to leave you with a photo taken from a 1992 NASA conference exploring the world of VR. Doesn’t it look suspiciously like the ill-fated Google Glass but two decades prior?
However, VR at the time was a solution without a problem. It was developed internally within NASA as a means to train engineers and astronauts to maneuver the space shuttle’s robotic arm. Years later, two NASA engineers saw more potential and started the first VR lab to further explore its potential in space exploration. For decades this low-fidelity VR was used in numerous training scenarios including that of the crippled Hubble Telescope which needed repair. However, creating a $2.5b replica of the telescope on earth just wasn’t feasible so they took to creating a digital VR model to train the astronauts on instead.
That’s it for this month!
