Friday Round-Up #003

6th September 2013

Reading Time:

Recently I had a week away from the office – using up remaining holiday, catching up on freelance work and stretching my legs in Skyrim – before starting my new job at Stickyeyes (it’s going great by the way). Now in the office, I’ve noticed a lot of cool stuff this past week or so.

  • Nymi – When I was shown the Nymi site this week, my mind was blown. I went back to the site half a dozen times. Not only is the website great but the wristband itself could be incredible. That is, if developers go wild with the SDK.
  • #TIDE – A design and digital conference running this October in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Some great speakers, including Harry Roberts and Andy Clarke and covering topics as diverse as crowd-funding and CSS. For £35, this is unmissable!
  • God’s own country is the best place in Europe – Exciting news for Yorkshire this week, as God’s Own Country wins the award for European Destination 2013 at the World Travel Awards.
  • Wikipedia Mobile’s list of nearby articles – I had no idea that Wikipedia did this, but they have a nice list of articles about things close to your location.
  • And finally: Sony’s detachable lens-cameras – This lovely video for the new QX100 and QX10 shows the two lens-type cameras Sony will be launching. They’re able to sync with your smartphone when you need a viewfinder, and operate independantly when you don’t. I love the video; it shows great examples of the camera in use and is really sweet.
