A year in review - an OriginalSteps.com feature

One can safely deduce that people from here to Mars have something to say about the outgoing year 2016 - mostly bad things unfortunately. However such a bleak outlook is quite inconsiderate considering people, and actual human-beings where conceived and born within this year! These individuals might even end up becoming the next generation of superhero's the world has longed for.

However right now it feels like the world could use some superhuman strength to power through to 2017.

Borg/McEnroe is a film of one of the world’s greatest icons Björn Borg and his biggest rival, the young and talented John McEnroe. It's a story of two men that became legends and the prize they had to pay.

The film stars Swedish award winning actor Sverrir Gudnason as Borg, American actor Shia LaBeouf as his tennis court rival, John McEnroe. As Borg’s trainer, the legendary Lennart “Labbe” Bergelin, Swedish acclaimed actor Stellan Skarsgård returns for a major part in a Swedish film for the first time in almost ten years.

Brilliance and being smart is one thing. Having the skills to focus on a career that serves the human nervous-system which includes the brain and spine, takes a lot more than grey matter but also hard work and dedication to the specialization of neurological surgery.

Doctor Strange, also known as Stephen Vincent Strange, takes such skills to the next level by becoming a sorcerer. Probably the best way to think of a sorcerer would be a magician with steroid enhanced skills. Therefore if one combined the likes of David Blaine and David Copperfield with the aptitude of a Medical Doctor like Doogie Howser, M.D you would just about be the value-add needed to become such a superhero.

Four distinct products; three different companies; two distant continents - connecting one planet's future.

The Force: It is not an everyday occurrence that one can walk around feeling like a Jedi. Well one US-based robotics company called Sphero on the contrary, is bringing that feeling a little closer to homes with their BB-8 and Force Band offering. As BB-8 is now fast becoming a household or office robotic pet. Sphero’s Force Band addition (which helps to control the BB-8 robot), has certainly brought out what was once a dream-like concept of George Lucas’ Star War saga to real life and modern living.
