Intel’s Museum of Me

A week in and I realized no one posted this yet. So here it is: Museum of Me. This went Supersonic last week. Facebook is the museum of you, if you look back at all your data.

Burger Roulette App Concept

Another great idea by students. This time from the Miami Ad School Europe.

Social meets bottle opener

Heineken created a bottle opener that automatically connects to Facebook and creates an event at your location every time you open a beer. Love it!

A night out without consequences.

Another great idea from students in Holland. Looks like it might be trend to feature student work on this blog.

Chromaroma – Oyster Card, Foursquare Style

Chromaroma is a game that shows you your movements and location as you swipe your Oyster Card in and out of the Tube.

It connects communities of people who cross paths and routes on a regular basis, and encourages people to make new journeys and use public transport in a different way by exploring new areas and potentially using different modes of public transport.
At its simplest, Chromaroma is about amassing the most points possible. By watching your own travel details you can investigate interesting new ways to travel and exciting new destinations in order to get more points. Grab “multipliers” and bonus points by working with a team, building up connections with fellow passengers and discovering mysteries that are attached to locations on your routes.

Beyond competition and conquest, Chromaroma’s gameplay opens up the beauty in the city’s transport flows and reveals to its most persistent players some of the mysteries of travel, and even the strange characters travelling through the tunnels in the centre of the system, who may hold the secrets to your city.

Color Looks To Reinvent Social Interaction With Its Mobile Photo App (And $41 Million In Funding)

$41 million. From Sequoia Capital, Bain Capital, and Silicon Valley Bank. Pre-launch.

That’s how much a brand new startup called Color has to work with. Your eyebrows should already be raised, and here’s something to keep them fixed there: this is the most money Sequoia has ever invested in a pre-launch startup. Or, as the Color team put it, “That’s more than they gave Google.”

Surprise: Teens don’t want to “Like” your company on Facebook

From RRW.

According to research released today by Forrester, only 6% of U.S. consumers aged 12-17 are interested in interacting with brands on Facebook, even though they are active users of the site in general.

Teenagers do use social media to discuss brands and products, but they want to initiate the conversation, rather than having the brand do so.

“While only 16% of young consumers expect companies to use social tools to interact with them, 28% expect companies to listen to what they’re saying on social networks and respond if they have questions,” says the report.

According to Forrester, most 12-17 year-olds said they trust search engine results and television. Almost 50% even said they could trust a company’s website, but only 26% said they feel they can trust a company’s profile on a social networking site.

Well duh.

LinkedIn meets Facebook

BranchOut works much like LinkedIn – users can post work histories, they can connect to other users on a professional basis (keeping those kegstand pictures private), and they can search for friends and friends-of-friends working at specific companies. But there’s one major difference. BranchOut is built on top of Facebook, and CEO Rick Marini believes that is what will give it both the scale and virality needed to become tops in the online career networking business.

Still doesn’t trump the Google Super Bowl ad …


Cool ‘live’ campaign from Skittles. Provide an update and 15 minutes later, you’ll get your post visualized by a real person in a YouTube video. I believe there’s a whole swarm of Skittles call centre peeps in a warehouse somewhere in the UK.
