    Life is full of tough choices, so why not let a children’s toy make those decisions for you? The Magic 8-Ball is a classic toy for finding out if your crush feels the same way about you or for finding out if the Soviets are about to invade your playground. While this may have been a fine toy for the 20th century, communication has changed quite a bit recently, so for today’s build DJ will be reimagining the technology for a more modern audience. Should you stick around and build your own? It is decidedly so.
