Pyrex: Great for storing leftovers and capturing sweet underwater footage with your smartphone.
Open your fridge right now. How many of those Pyrex Snapware containers are in there? Well, apparently these things can do more than just store two-week-old leftovers that you know you’re not going to eat.

This is one of those DIY hacks that makes me realize how unimaginative I am as a creative person. “Why didn’t I think of that?” I have a ton of these Snapware containers all over my kitchen doing boring things like storing my wife’s lunches and last night’s enfrijoladas. Dumb. With just a little bit of tape, I could’ve been out there in the field getting some sweet underwater footage.
