Well, someone had to be first. Introducing Hands Free Tinder. A new Apple Watch app that lets you find your perfect match, by analysing your heart rate on each potential partners profile photos, then automatically swipes left or right for you! Created by T3. I’m sure its a gimmick. But pretty fun!
For all your LEGO fans out there! You can make just about anything with LEGO, and you can make LEGO make just about anything too. And now, LEGO can even become a 3D Printer, printing with LEGO pieces! So this device, is a LEGO Mosaic Printer, that uses tiny pieces of 1×1 LEGO to replicate any pattern it wants. Check it out. Pretty cool!
Is this the coolest robot ever? Introducing Robot Origami from MIT, self-folding robots that unpack themselves, walk, swim, climb and complete automated tasks! A team of MIT researchers have developed the printable origami robot that folds itself up from a flat sheet of plastic when heated and measures about a centimeter from front to back. Check out more details here.
With the Cannes Lions 2015 Festival of Creativity complete, all the gold awarded, parties over and the 15,000+ people flying back home with perfect tans, it’s time to review the the world’s best creative work for 2015. So I’ve rounded up each Grand Prix winning case study for this year, and embedded them below so you can check them all out in once place. Apologies in advance they are a little low res, hopefully I can swap them out later…! Click here to watch all the case study videos...
Well if this isn’t the single best hype video I’ve ever seen, I sure can’t remember what beats it. Thrown to the internet just a few days ago, so if you’ve been in Cannes, you probably missed it, and if you weren’t, you’re probably itching to see the next film that is due to be released this week.
It’s part of Lexus’ content series called “Amazing In Motion” which has released some really cool pieces, however, this is absolutely the killer! The teaser film already has almost 6 million views in 5 days. You can follow the campaign with #LexusHover or click here for more details.
Street addresses, locations, deliveries, finding people… it’s ultimately one of the hardest things to do on a global scale, it has no similar foundation or working order… apart from pure GEO targeted Lat/Long codes that humans can’t understand!
So, What3Words have created a universal 3 meter X 3 meter global map of the entire earth, giving each 3x3m square on the planet, 3 unique words (53 trillion of them to be precise). This platform, app and ultimately API, will potentially revolutionise the way things are delivered and connected around the world, becoming particularly innovative in the developing world.
It won the Cannes Lions Innovation Grand Prix in 2015. Simply Brilliant.
Attention tech-loving-foodies. Meet June, the world’s first smart oven, where the more people that own it, the smarter it becomes. It’s an oven created by ex-apple employees, designed to be more powerful, smarter and more beautiful than all other ovens!
The countertop oven features Wi-Fi connectivity for software updates, an in-built digital scale, Nvidia processors as the brains, touchscreen interface, plus an HD digital camera that recognises food and automatically programs the oven how to cook it, perfectly. Very cool.
Public Transport Victoria have come up with a genius way to help homeless youth charity Ladder. They used MYKI – Melbourne’s public transport cards – to allow commuters to donate directly to billboards. By harnessing an existing human behaviour, i.e. tapping a public transport card, they were able to make an easy donation mechanism that also pulled the heart strings. For what was no doubt a complex project to pull off, PTV have ended up with an idea that comes across as simple and attention grabbing. But perhaps most of all, one of the easiest ways to raise donations. Created by the guys at GPY&R Melbourne.
If you’ve ever wondered what the weather was like at your next destination while waiting for a flight, well, now you won’t have to with a new installation at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport, called “The Climate Portal”. An installation that simulates a range of weather conditions.
The installation, created by the guys at Akestam Holst, brings physical weather simulations to you as people step inside booths to experience the different conditions with the use of wind generators, audio-visual cues and temperature simulators. The Weather simulation booths are powered by online weather services translating data into experiences in three physical rooms: Hot, Cold and Big.
Unfortunately the video isn’t that great. But you’ll get the idea. What do you guys think?
Here’s a neat little piece from Fiat; The Parking Billboard. An interactive installation where they’ve taken the ultrasonic sensors that typically sit inside the Fiat’s bumpers (you know, those audio beeping sensors…) and have rigged them up to a video billboard opposite a specifically designed car space to help guide drivers into the spot perfectly. Cool. Created by Leo Burnett in Germany.
