Must See
Michael Jackson, creator of the React Router library, gives this talk where he says a component with a render prop or children prop as renderer can do anything an HoC (Higher Order Component) can do, and more.
Other Cool Stuff
What if you could see sounds? Apple's AR Kit visualizes them in space.
