push the boat out

The world’s first immersive-experience rower, the Hydrow is proof that cardio machines don’t have to be loud and unwieldy. Using a next-generation electromagnetic drag mechanism that replicates the feeling of being on water, a webbed strap for near-silent strokes and a touchscreen that connects you to sessions with world-class trainers, it is to rowing what Peloton is to cycling: a disruptive and forward-thinking home fitness experience.

ANSWER Stars In 2019, the shoe brand Rothy’s released loafers embroidered with zodiac symbols and Instagram launched a filter that superimposes star signs onto people’s faces. “We’ve hit peak astrology,” announced Vice, and the New Yorker, Guardian and BBC were soon running think pieces on the renewed fascination with horoscopes. The consensus was that Millennials were using astrology as a coping mechanism at a time of job insecurity, rising living costs and social media-induced anxiety – then the pandemic struck, intensifying all of those pressures. If it helps, astrology isn’t an evil thing. Yet there’s no scientific basis for its claims, and it seems like hard work: negotiating your work-life balance, do you have the bandwidth to track how…
