AppSeed

This incredible concept app… concappt, is the amazing brainchild of Greg Goralski. It uses computer vision to turn initial scamps into interactive wireframes with functional buttons, maps and other features.

This could be a quick and amazing tool to bring ideas to life before they even get to see dev or design.

AppSeed

I think this is an amazing idea that could really help the realisation of ideas as well as the initial sell. However, they still need your help. The project is still looking for backers through KickStarter. So what are you waiting for!

iPad Head (via TJ)

My little friend just posted this on facebook and for a while I was like, WTF? but then I was like, frikking adverts.

Obviously the best bit is where he starts stroking her face and turning her into much more attractive females. But why???

Well viral agency Thinkmodo thought it would be a good way to promote the latest in iPad applications, Cosmo for Guys.

See, told you that wasn't her real head.

More interesting stuff:  They filmed the footage in the park prior to her little walk… obvs, and she wore special glasses and a concealed camera in her bag to let her know where she was going.

Now here’s a shameless snapshot of semi naked woman.

Yup, I think I’m done here.

Honda Jazz up TV ads

I’ve now been catching cartoon critters for over 24 hours and thoroughly enjoying it, all thanks to Wieden + Kennedy and their new TV ad for Honda Jazz.  The ad itself is a well scripted but extremely fluffy step into a fantasy world, under the guise ‘This unpredictable life’, but not in the sense Tony Kaye delivered for Dunlop in 1993.  This ad is more closely related to the cutesy offspring of the Lloyds TSB family and the Duracell bunny after their trip to Care-alot kingdom (or whatever that place was called, I can’t remember).

But putting aside the mediocre ad aside, lets not forget the world’s first fantastic feature… iPhone integration.

Yes, the beauty of this ad is that it is ‘audio-synced’ with their iPhone app, so all the user need do is swipe their phone in front of their screen or speaker in order to capture the several cartoon creatures floating about the screen.

I actually did find this a lot of fun and have been capturing and resetting the app ever since I downloaded it.  But alas, it was not until I was merely the supplier and onlooker of this activation application that I finally realised I had not heard the ad once in the 15+ times I’d watched it and even worse, I did not even take on board the point or plot of the story.

(Something about choices and not knowing)

Anyway, the ad is to air tonight between Channel Four’s runaway bride hit, ‘My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’ (watch it).

Tube Refund

Ever had to suffer over 15minutes of underground armpit in London’s tube stations without any signs of a train???
Well, did you know you’re entitled to a refund because of this?

No… neither did I, but now you can claim a refund from your iPhone, I’m all over it!

Download from iTunes

ONSITE DESCRIPTION

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE A FULL REFUND IF YOUR TUBE JOURNEY IS DELAYED BY 15 MINUTES?

Fact: If your tube journey is delayed by more than 15 minutes you are entitled to a full refund of a single fare for your journey*

Fact: There were 1371 delays between January and September 2009. That works out to approximately 42 delays a week!** Did any of these affect you?

**** The Ultimate Form Filling Application That Actually Makes You Money***

If you use the tube every week day to go to work, it means that on an average week you are almost guaranteed to be delayed. More than likely you will be delayed two or three times in the week and before you just had to live with it.

But not anymore!

Now with the Tube Refund Application you can claim back a full single journey fare at the touch of a few buttons!

******************************************************************************************************
THE PROBLEM

•Tube ticket prices are increasing on regular basis
•The service has not improved
•Tubes are overcrowded
•Delays and strikes are a regular occurrence

Refund Forms

London Underground does provide refunds if Tube journeys are delayed by more than 15 minutes, however:

1)Not many people know about this refund scheme
2)The paper form takes time to fill out and you have to ask for it from the station staff.
3)By the time you get to work late and catch up – you have forgotten that you need to fill out a refund form.

******************************************************************************************************
THE SOLUTION: TUBE REFUND APP

An automated service to make it easier for you to claim your refunds in a few 4 simple steps:

1)When you first get the application you will enter your travel details and ticket details. These will be safely stored on your phone.

2)The next time you have a delay – you only have to fill out one form with the specifics of your delay (time / date etc).

3)The Tube Refund App does all the rest of the form filling and submission to the tube website for you.

4)Wait at home for your refund voucher!

******************************************************************************************************

AN EXAMPLE

Let’s take an example – every week it costs £44 for a zones 1-5 travel card.

On an average week there will be 1 or 2 delays on any given leg of the journey (that’s right if both legs of the journey are delayed on a day you are entitled to a refund TWICE!).

Being conservative – lets say we use the tube-refund application to claim back 2 single fare journeys.

That’s £8 pounds back in a week! (Two £4 REFUNDS in a week!)

******************************************************************************************************
