Whisp

Image for Whisp

Whisp is a private messaging app for shoppers. OK...and?

While there are many apps for messaging and for shopping, what makes Whisp stand out is that its interface allows users to drag and drop images in messages, rather than sending a bunch of links back and forth. It looks sharp, and it should, since its key user base are all about looking good.

Slack is a communication platform designed by Tiny Speck to help keep teams talking and organized. Tired of trying to keep all those Skype messages, emails, Basecamp notifications straight? Slack is supposed to be a one-stop shop to keep all your "keeping in touch" in one place. Best of all, it syncs easily between desktops, smartphones and tablets.

An Illustrated Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology

Image for An Illustrated Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology

We are all a little bit cyborg. Heck, if you're reading this on a digital screen right now, then some part of your consciousness has been extended into hyperspace. Excited? Terrified? Having flashbacks of reading Neuromancer?

Either way, I suggest you dive into the depths of the Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology  and learn more about "time and space compression, hyperlinked memories, panic architecture, mobile technology, interface evaporation and how technology is changing the way we live."

Lego calendar forever

Image for Lego calendar forever

Vitamins design studio was looking for a fun and creative way to keep track of time and projects. Thus, the Lego Calendar was born.
 
How it works:
  • Every row represents a month
  • Every colum represents a day of the week
  • Every project has its own color
  • Every brick represents a half day spent on the particular project

It's a great way to track time allocation without getting into the minutiae. The coolest part is that when studiomates take a picture of the calendar with their smartphones, it's automatically synchronized in their digial calendar.

Flowy: a mobile game to help quell anxiety

Image for Flowy: a mobile game to help quell anxiety

Flowy is a mobile game designed for people who suffer from panic attacks. Utilizing anxiety management techniques, particularly breathing exercises, Flowy has the potential to help users calm down.

While the gameplay itself doesn't monitor breathing directly, it instead directs users to press one button as they breathe in, and another when they breathe out. The breath is then translated into tasks where users power up robots or "motivate kittens."

The minigames are designed to last between five and 15 breaths.
