3D touch on the iPhone 6 allows you to weigh things directly on your phone, but for some reason, Apple doesn't want people building scale apps. Many have tried, but been rejected by the app store because Apple says "the concept of a scale app is not appropriate for the app store," whatever that means. Asaf Avidan Antonir built a simple game that uses 3D touch to move a dot between lines (think Flappy Bird), but the important part is the "training" function. Within training mode, you can figure out how much force you're exerting to practice moving the dot, or just use the thing as a scale for...whatever you want.

Meanwhile in Norway…

Meet Harald V, King of the Trolls (also King of Norway).

In a recent interview with NRK TV, Harald said he will soon be going to Antarctica to visit his country's research station called "Troll."

The station was opened nearly 10 years ago by his wife, Queen Sonja, who is sitting next to him.

Watch the video above (with subtitles) for the punchline.

Oh Harald.
