With so many cool things coming out each week, it can be hard to wade through all the rock-awesomeness. Fortunately, we’ve done the hard work for you so all you have to do is lay back in your La-Z-Boy with your Blue Razz Big Gulp Slurpee and pop Reese’s Pieces into your mouth.
This week we saw everything from a 1/6 scale Back to the Future Delorean to a paint sculpture that pumps out different colored paint depending on social media ’emotion statuses’ in the nearby surrounding area.
Ready? Let’s go!
This week we look at:
HEX Solo Wallet for iPhone 6
“The Solo Wallet for iPhone 6 is an exercise in simplicity of innovation. By wrapping our custom molded case with premium camo printed genuine leather, we created a premium play on an everyday item. By incorporating a camera hole and adding two integrated card slots, we created a new standard for efficiency and convenience. Use the slots for ID, credit cards or extra cash. Now you can have everything you need for your digital life in one slim solution. Smart.”
1/6 Scale Back to the Future Delorean
“The movie-accurate DeLorean collectible vehicle is very detailed and specially crafted based on the film. It features a meticulously crafted exterior with cable wires across the body, detailed structure of the DeLorean time machine engine deck and cabin, functional gull-wing doors, and a number of LED light-up functions on the exterior and interior.”
“We built this app because we love Evernote. Evernote changed the way that we record our lives, whether it be todo’s, work notes, thoughts, receipts or photos. Since every thought happens at a given place, we believe context is one of the most valuable things to add to the Evernote experience. With the context of location, finding past notes has never been easier and proximity-based reminders make forgetting important notes a thing of the past.”
“Autodesk® SketchBook® Mobile is a professional-grade painting and drawing application designed for the iPhone and iPod Touch. With the same paint engine as the SketchBook Pro desktop software, SketchBook Mobile delivers fluid pencils and sophisticated brushes in a simple and easy-to-use interface. Capture everything from your smallest doodles to your biggest ideas all in one place with SketchBook Mobile, no matter where you are.”
Internet Photo Frame
“Unlike most commercial frames, this digital picture frame connects to Flickr, allowing you to add and remove photos without a physical storage device, such as USB stick or SD card. A Raspberry Pi hidden inside the TV connects to the internet and automatically updates the pictures when the Flickr album is modified.”
Tablet Mount for Car Interior
“I do quite a bit of driving these days. I visit customers in country towns and some days spend five to six hours behind the wheel. I like to use my Samsung Galaxy Tablet for music, navigation, CRM, and emails. For navigation and music I had to find a way of mounting the tablet to make it as safe as possible to use while mobile.”
“It’s happening all around you. They aren’t coming. They’re already here.”
“Painting the mood of the city using social media as an input.”
