These guys have come up with one of the coolest lines of posters I have ever seen. These would go great in any new start up office or right next to your bed to wake you up with a fire under your butt. These designs are dramatic and eye catching while getting the point across swiftly. I am struggling to decide which ones I want to get for my home office and which ones to save for the new office downtown when we become a success.
I don’t really understand Bitcoin but it seems to be a burgeoning issue that will need to be dealt with. I am excited about the notion of a currency that is completely unregulated becoming viable. This video demystifies some of the Bitcoin confusion but I am sure we will hear even more in the coming months and years.
This new app from Social Print Studio is pretty interesting and falls right in line with the goals of The Cusp. It is an incredibly simple idea executed perfectly. All IPhones now have a front facing and rear facing camera and Dblcam uses both at the same time. This app will take “selfies” to the next level. Check out their Instagram feed HERE to see what people are doing with this technology. With the popularity of Instagram continuing to grow we expect to see many more apps that use pics in new and interesting ways. Let us know what you think will be next.
This website is an incredible resource for open source coding drop ins.

If you are working on development for mobile apps or websites binpress can save you hours of work time with open source coding. Take a look around and find out just how easy it could be to save yourself some time.
Pencil by 53
This device is a great way to use your IPad like paper. The corresponding app for your pencil allows you a full creative pallet right at the tip of your Pencil. This is a must for all designers and artists.
This team has created something remarkable. The subtitle of this video is, “Interacting with a Dynamic Shape Display” and it is amazing. When you watch this video you will start to have flashes of potential as to what technology like this can be used for in the future. I immediately saw a soldier or Marine being able to touch his son’s hand for the first time even though he is on the opposite side of the world. This could be one of the most significant posts I have ever seen. Let us know what you think.
This video has been making it’s way around Facebook and other tech blogs for some time now but I have never really taken a look at it until today. This card is capable of storing many different cards in it (debit, credit, rewards…). The video shows the capabilities of the card well and it seems to be super easy to use. I am very interested about exactly how it works though but with a $50 price tag, I can’t say I will be first in line for this. Maybe the price will come down or I will run into someone that is already using Coin so I can give you a proper review once I see it. Check out Coin’s FAQ page here to find out more.
The creators of GitBadger had development in mind when they built this website. It allows a project manager to keep tabs on all the coders out there to measure their contributions to the project. It breaks down each individual coder and what was done new for each program. Invite all users to a “war room” for a great off site collaboration. Perfect for project managers that can’t be in the room with their teams. Check it out for free and see how it helps your process.
Good.co is a website that measures your personality and compatibility with others in your work environment or group. The tout this as the way to get the most out of your teams by putting the best combinations together. It is also a useful tool to understand how you work personally and account for the different styles around you. It can make you a better teammate and a better boss. The video does a great job of explaining the process in an interesting way. We have talked before about getting your point across as quickly as you can while maintaining your potential customer’s interest and this video is a perfect example. I am going to go do my personality survey right now. Post your results here.

This is new idea that came off of Kickstarter that I absolutely love. It takes your standard calendar and stretches it out into one long timeline from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31st. It is a really cool and fun idea that is generating a lot of popularity with the Kickstarter crowd. Unfortunately you can’t back this project as it closed down today but I am guessing you will see these in a store near you soon.

Mosaic allows users to use multiple devices to display single images. You can make a “super” display by linking several IPads or smart phones together in one seamless group. The makers of Mosaic have also made their creation free for developers to utilize this technology in their next generation of games and tools. This is the type of innovation that has the potential to change the way we interact with our devices and each other. They recognize this potential but want to make sure the next steps are taking by you and not just their creative team. Teams that respond to this challenge will only push this technology even further where another team will pick up the creative mantle to continue the innovation. I am excited to see where Mosaic can end up.
