Yes, this is as crazy as it looks. Strongbow – the masters of deliciously sweet commercial cider – have taken drinking your favourite tipple one step further with StartCap

Utilising RFID technology, the StartCap can be set up to an antenna and used to trigger anything you connect it to… The technology can get the music playing, turn the lights on (or off!) set off confetti cannons, or turn the tv channel over!

Strongbow’s genius idea can really get the night going. Still in prototype form, but looking to feature around events very soon. Not that we’re supremely lazy, but RumbleChat will definitely be keeping an eye out for it!

What do you think? How would you put it to work for you?

That’s right people… you can now create your own wardrobe from your Instagram prints! Take a photo of your cat, your favourite piece of architecture, your baby, whatever you like and these guys will produce a beautiful bespoke dress or t-shirt in a variety of different designs for you! Constrvct are online only, and are also the creators of innovative digital fashion line Continuum Fashion.

We just love the way they combine digital media with everyday items. They are fun, a little bit bonkers, but overall faaaabulous darrrling.

 

Locu is a new service that allows you to update your menus across the web with one click.

 

We work with clients in the Restaurant business helping keep menu changes updated across the web. We know it’s a nightmare and guess if you run a restaurant that changes it’s menu regularly you’ll probably agree. So when we herd about Locu – a new service that allows you to “edit, design, and share your menu across the web for free with the click of a button” we thought you might like to know!

The good news is that these guys have received funding so are definitely planning to grow.  The bad news is that they are US based so we are currently talking to them about it’s suitability for the UK market.  We’ll keep you posted…

 

 

This week PSFK reported that Stranger & Stranger designed new packaging for wine maker Truett-Hurst, wrapping their bottles in paper covered with recipes, pictures, and quotes relating to occasions wine might be bought for.

We thought this was really interesting, because it takes a usability based approach to wine packaging design.  Usability is a core design principle we use developing digital strategies and digital products.
