From shopping for groceries to video-chatting a friend in another country, you can do almost anything online. But did you know you could also search for online arrest records and mug shots, or design and print your own 3D art? If you’re sick of scrolling endlessly through Facebook and Twitter, here are five free things you probably didn’t realize you could do online.
Find Your Ring Size
Ordering jewelry online can be difficult, especially if you’re trying to buy a ring for someone else and you don’t know his or her size. With the help of FindMyRingSize.com, you can figure out your ring size or the ring size of a loved one—and all you need is your driver’s license (or a credit card) and a ring. So dig out your favorite ring or sneak into your loved one’s jewelry stash to find their size. If you don’t have a ring to compare, you can use the site’s virtual ruler instead.
Search Arrest Records
Arrest records contain information about an individual’s criminal history and conviction record. Arrest records are collected by law enforcement and reveal prior convictions—both misdemeanors and felonies—in a court of law.
Online information databases like GoLookUp aggregate and collect millions of mugshots and arrest records in the United States from real-time data sources. So if you’re bored, why not try searching for arrest records online? You can search for the arrest records of your coworkers, neighbors, and even your family members.
Your results will return inmate information and federal prison information, as well as the arrest date, status, any probation violations, and the final disposition of an individual’s criminal charges. To search for arrest records online, all you need is an individual’s name.
Design 3D Art
Three-dimensional printing has gained immense popularity since it was made available to regular customers. Sure, you can buy 3D-printed items from numerous companies, but what about designing your own 3D art?
Websites like Tinkercad and Vectary can help you bring your 3D ideas to life. If you already have a design, you can upload a file and the company will print it for you.
Explore New Cities
With the help of Google Street View, you can embark on an adventure from the comfort of your own home. Try entering an address or visiting a city located in another country and using your mouse to explore nearby streets, plazas, and neighborhoods. If you’re not sure where to start, type in “10 Downing Street” to explore the inside of London’s government headquarters.
If your Google Street View adventure leaves you feeling inspired to travel the world, you can plan your dream vacation online. Whether you’re interested in visiting Southern California or Northern Italy, you can use the internet to explore hotels, cruises, flights, and tours. Even if you can’t afford to take a vacation, planning your dream trip can be a fun and exciting experience.
From simple individual activities to accessing large amounts of data, you can do almost anything online. So when you’re bored of reading status updates, try visiting some of the websites mentioned above.
