The Rising Seas Wetsuit (video)

T

This is a fascinating product from @vissla and @surfirder that sadly makes complete sense. As the ocean becomes more polluted, those of us that love SCUBA, surfing, etc will need to protect ourselves. Surfing particularly is known for some pretty serious illnesses depending on where you surf.  Obviously, it’s not just the ocean. In Colorado we’ve seen the rise of the “blue...

SxSW should let attendees use Flipboard to recommend sessions & events you should see

S

This March I’ll be taking graduate/undergraduate students to SxSWi for the third year. (Last year I had 46 students, with zero arrests!) If you’ve been to SxSW before, you understand how intense the event can be. If you haven’t been, it’s like a rapid dive into the deep end of the pool that has you feeling like you know very little about what’s going on in the world...

What Flipboard should do next

W

Needless to say, I’m a fan of Flipboard and have been since it was released in 2010. I’ve enjoyed the media rich updates – streaming music and video – and embraced the idea of being able to curate your own magazine (on the web also) when it was released in June of this year. However, I didn’t create one until about 4 weeks ago. I spend a tremendous amount of time...

MP3 player for your wrist by Dinard da Mata

M

I saw this amazing wearable MP3 player by Dinard da Mata and thought I’d share it. Unfortunately this doesn’t currently exist. The interface is made of OLED and the wireless earbuds look amazing. Wearable tech is coming soon to a theater near all of us. With Project Glass, the iWatch and tech built into your clothes, mobile is going to mean something much more soon.
 

A camera for Instagram called the Socialmatic (video)

A

Antonio De Rosa is raising money to build out a camera specifically for Instagram. (If you just ignore the fact that Instagram was bought by Facebook, it seems MUCH cooler.) The camera is called a the Socialmatic and the video below outlines all that the device does. They have 41 days left to raise the money and a long way to go. Donate now, if you want to be IDd as the photo-uber-geek that you...

Reading Without My Glasses

R

Was talking with a fellow co-worker about the Sony “Reader Digital Book” (Can a guy, please get some branding?!?!) and we were discussing the Kindle and how well these devices work under direct sunlight and/or in the dark. I looked at the Sony version probably five years ago and really like the idea for books that I don’t necessarily want to own in the physical sense. Not sure...
