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.
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!
Layar, the AR specialists and general technologic innovators, have stepped up the game again. This time, instead of using AR to enrich the world around you, they’ve applied it to the things you read.
This execution is not only the smoothest most seamless integration of AR onto real life products, but it also seems like a user friendly back end, so much so that even troglodytes could become immediate masters of the augmented world.
Good work guys, keep it up!
I want to kick off this post with a quick question:
What everyday item does Beck’s (the beer) have within its iconic shield?
I had no idea either (if you did, you should pat your self on the back and then have a long hard think about how much time you’re spending in the pub).
Well the answer is… A key.
Leo Burnett in Serbia have used this icon to extend their; ‘When I drink, I don’t drive’ campaign. They have created a neat mobile app that judges your sobriety and calls you a local taxi if it deems you too worse for wear.
Clever branding, but I can’t imagine it will be used for what it was intended. The sweet part is that it calls the taxi for you but surely if you know (or even think) you’re over the legal limit you should just not drive as apposed to gambling your (and everyone else’s) safety on a frivolous app. Although I do think it’s already served as a nice bit of awareness… I’ve learnt Beck’s logo is a key.
Don’t drink and drive!

To promote the retro/Shoreditch cool pixelating iPhone app, ‘Pixel Face’, Grimaceworks created this lovely little webgame, based on the hipsters hit ‘being a dickhead is cool’.
Answer the kwestions in this kwl kwz to find out exactly how bigger tw@ you are with the ‘Dickheadometer’:
What surprised me was that it seems to be built solely to promote an app, without any branding (cue gasp).
…unless the app was built to promote the production company. Whoa dude, I think I’m tweaking.
Stay tuned for Font Face… coming soon.
Mainly because I needed a bit of a break from all the Charlie. Sheen that is… hmm.
But yes. I LOVE Angry Birds. Three stars on all levels… sure.
So to celebrate the love of lobbing larks, here’s like-o-meter that The Oatmeal put together:
When young Ben turned 6, his Father, creator of ever more elaborate cakes, decided to make him a fully functional Angry Bird cake. Well… I say fully functional but I didn’t see the little bluebirds splitting into three.
I feel creator Mike may have had more fun than neigh on unenthusiastic Ben. Come on Ben, if you’re not impressed with the worlds most addictive game combined with a cake that you’re actually supposed to destroy… You’re Dad’s just given you a catapult.
There’s no pleasing some kids.
It’s become a family tradition that I make increasingly ridiculous birthday cakes for my kids each year. So with my little boy Ben turning 6-years-old over the weekend, and appreciating his love of Angry Birds, I thought I’d have a shot a making him a playable Angry Birds birthday cake with working catapult and iced birds as ammunition.
