The Swiss use SMS to file taxes in SwedenTax time is no fun at all. There’s all the paperwork and about a hundred other complications. It isn’t that way in Sweden. To file taxes in Sweden all you have to do is open a new text message, enter your Social Security number and a security code sent to you by mail, and zip it off to the Department of the Treasury.

This is how many Swedish people will file their income taxes in May. They’ve used this system for the last five years. But there’s a catch.

Learn guitar with lasers

Learn guitar with lasersYou want to be a Guitar Hero, but you don’t know any songs. Just attach this Maestro device onto your guitar, load a music file of the song you want to learn and it will point out the frets you need to hit, using lasers. As any rock god will tell you, guitars and lasers are an awesome combination.

But just be warned, if you suck, no amount of lasers are going to stop you from sucking. You still have to strum and finger the frets. But it does seem like a great way for guitar players to learn songs quickly. If this concept ever gets made, it would probably do really well.
