Check out Scribit on Kickstarter. It’s a device that will create art on your wall—from drawings to your recent Twitter messages to crowdsourced designs. Better yet, it will erase that art, too, turning your wall into giant reusable canvas. It can draw using four pens (red, blue, yellow, and black), and it needs two nails and a power outlet to install. The video is cool as can be, and the project has already raised more than US$400,000 with 23 days to go. Pledge levels that will get you a Scribit start at $349.

OK, so Siri isn’t always great at answering follow-up questions. (And if you talk to Apple’s voice assistant a lot, you’ve probably used colorful language at it because of that very thing.)

Apple is teasing a new episode of Carpool Karaoke on June 15th, and the trailer’s out. It features Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, and Jeremy Renner, and it looks pretty funny.

That’s this Friday, and I can’t wait to see if season 2 of Carpool Karaoke is better than season 1. Judging by this trailer, that might be a big yes.
