A freaky look at what might be in store for the future

A good talk with Sahil Lavingia who is the founder and CEO of Gumroad.com which aims to be a lightweight sales platform. An interesting stat about how long it takes customers to return to Starbucks if the leave their mobile V wallet.

This is a really nice project aiming to 3D map the London tube stations. I worked on a similar project with typography in a 3D CAVE environment a few years back: http://stations.aeracode.org/

I went out to see the Ravensbourne Graduate show this year looking for good students and projects with commercial potential. In general I was very impressed with the digital thought of the work which is an improvement over previous years.

Jan Barcikowski – Motion Graphics
Really great concepts on Free Running and Spotify, some commercial viable projects.

Thomas Smee – Interaction Design
A strong shopping cart concept starting with creating lists at home. I would love to see this expand into other areas such as learning the carbon footprint of the food you purchase.

TorrentButler is a new torrent index site with a difference, it has had some design thought put into them. You can filter to check SD and HD versions, and every torrent has an individualised page with a background image and trailers.

Arduino The Documentary (2010) English HD from gnd on Vimeo.

I just watched the documentary on Arduino (Micro Controller) which details the history of the project and the people who got it off the ground. It was interesting to see the figures of how many boards have been sold and the volume of traffic to the website. I think Arduino is more in the main stream then I originally thought. I have done a 2 day course with Tinker.it (now seems to link to the Arduino blog) which I found as a great intro, and here is one of the reactive interface experiments I did using processing and Arduino.
