It’s obvious this kid is a genius. I have no idea how you would even begin to set something like this us, and to go along with his technical prowess, he made it incredibly practical but also hilarious. The question is, does that Romantic mode ever get any use? About 3 minutes in I was starting to have that bad feeling that in a few years Sorkin would be writing snappy dialogue for the latest movie about a boy genius who never get any ass and now is a huge dick to everyone. Four minutes in, on party mode, with blasting Levels? Come on. This kid is banging girls every night. Awesome stuff. Worth noting that the background music for the first section was the same that was used for the equally incredible-looking google glasses video a few weeks back. Lends itself perfectly to cool technology videos I guess.
Last week, Don’tTazeMeBro posted a link to another blog’s article on 15 Startups to Watch in 2012. This week, I’m featuring 3 startups that I personally will be following in 2012. These 3 upcoming startups are online websites that offer free services I can see myself using in the nightlife, transportation, and gym industries.
Coming into the new year, everyone has their resolutions they try to stick to. Why you have to use a new year as a reason to declare a resolution opposed to any other day beats me. I personally don’t believe in New Years Resolutions. However, Continue reading
Since we here at NSD are spontaneous and creative types that can create a website based on girls in skirts on a whim one slow Friday afternoon at work (and subsequently grow it into a multi-million dollar corporation…in 2013), we are always keeping an eye out for the next big thing in the startup world. Of the 15 on this list, I’m most excited about food.ee, YayTalent, and Happily. Food.ee especially is a good one–there really isn’t anything besides FourSquare and Yelp for people who love restaurants to tell their social networks about places. Both FourSquare and Yelp are too broad though, with way too much going on, and neither have all of the functionality and scope that food.ee looks to have.OP Continue reading
How good do these look? They solved literally all of the problems with the Snuggie. Want to take a shit? Here’s a butt flap. Have to piss? Here’s a zipper. Are your arms feeling constricted? Oh here’s some arm holes for you. First off I can’t believe I didn’t think of this first. All this guy did is put a butt flap and some arm holes in and he’s going to make millions. Second this is the stupidest commercial I’ve ever seen. Who goes tailgating wearing blankets? Who would have a party of people wearing blankets? Actually I don’t know what I’m saying. I strongly want one of these and the thought of wearing constricting clothes or really anything besides a Forever Lazy for the rest of my life is infuriating. I’m buying one immediately. I really wish this was a sponsored post. Maybe it can be. Forever Lazy please email me, I’m willing to post exclusively about your product for an entire year for one free one.
I gotta be honest, I’m probably never going to use this thing. My artistic ability is laughable at best, and all of my doodles over the years were not the artistic works seen in the video, they were more like random scribbles and offensive profane sentences about the teacher. Either way, this is a really cool idea, and one that I could definitely see a lot of people using. The product is basically a digital sketch pen that captures a digital likeness of your work on the computer–but it’s not just a simple scanner–you can also edit and change your piece of art graphically as well. Whether you have an artistic bone in your body or not, pretty cool video.
Everyone has those moments where they hear an idea for the first time and they immediately feel like a huge idiot for not thinking of it themselves. A site where you can have your own profile and post pictures? So simple! A site where they give you 50% of things like dining? So easy to start! While the people who actually made these ideas come to life have made literally billions of dollars, we are left to sit and ponder our fates. The biggest problem with starting your own business is two simple words: Time and Money. All of us have regular jobs, and while there are a lot of good ideas out there, there often isn’t enough time at the end of a long day at work to make that idea come to life. Even if you do find the time, where will you get the money? Sure, you can tour around looking for angel investors, but 99% of the time they will only even see you if you have a business up and running.
The website Quirky solves many of these issues. Quirky lets any user submit an idea for a product which will cost under $150 to manufacture, and users weigh in with feedback and suggestions. Every week, quirky takes the ten top rated ideas and manufactures the products themselves, taking a share themselves, giving some to the users who influenced the idea most, and of course, a large share for you, the inventor. So stop wasting away your days at work thinking that you have an idea for the next big thing, and submit it. The users of quirky will decide whether you should keep your day job. If you do one thing today, watch this video. You’ll be inspired, I promise.
