Over at RumbleChat Towers, we believe that all food should be accessible and affordable. That’s why Hugo set up MisterTruffle… Yep that’s right, unashamed plug coming up… please go to www.mistertruffle.com for all your fresh truffle needs!
But having said that, getting your fix of the little fishy beads – aka caviar – via a vending machine?! Is that taking things a wee bit far RumbleChatters?! Or are you thinking ‘thank goodness for that, just what I need during a busy Saturday shop!’
Beverly Hills Caviar in LA have now brought actual caviar vending machines to three malls within the City of Angels. You can spend anything from $4 to $500 for the pleasure!
So, do you think this will take off in our Fair Isle?
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?
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.
