In a digital age with an overflowing avalanche of content, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the constant influx of trends and innovations that flood our feeds daily - and have some of the most fascinating and intriguing stories slip through the cracks.

Check out the first Round-Up below - be sure to let us know what you think, and what else you'd like to hear us write about!
