911 Operator by PlayWay

But this is not all - other calls might be about ongoing crimes, drugs dealing, family abuses. We also covered fires and technical problems (like chemical hazards or people trapped in elevator). You will get confused why and in which situations people can call 911 :) We made some rocket science to give an option to download and play on ANY REAL CITY in the world, thanks to OpenStreetMaps!

WoodyMac - Magnetic Building Blocks by WoodyMac, Inc.

These wooden construction blocks are designed to foster creativity, develop architectural and engineering skills, and promote spatial thinking—the skill required to mentally manipulate 2D and 3D objects—which scientific studies have demonstrated is key to the development of new knowledge and innovation in technology, math, and science. Build a dollhouse, a castle, a high-tech home, a supermarket, or anything else you can dream up!

We're combining an innovative magnetic building set with an interactive, cutting edge mobile application, that will allow users to share their fun online and will enable parents to participate, encourage, monitor, and educate from anywhere at any time.

Life After Kickstarter: 5 Costly Lessons From A Kickstarter-Backed Designer. For Jon Fawcett, Kickstarter success came with an unusual soundtrack: an air horn.

Life After Kickstarter: 5 Costly Lessons From A Kickstarter-Backed Designer

The din started on May 7, 2012, the day Fawcett and his colleagues at Fuse Chicken, a four-person design outfit in Akron, Ohio, launched their first Kickstarter campaign. They were trying to raise funding for Une Bobine, a product of Fawcett’s design that stuffed an iPhone charging cable inside a metal gooseneck, allowing it to double as a flexible docking station and makeshift tripod. It was a simple, clever idea, and the team set out with the modest goal of raising $9,800 to put it into production. In anticipation of their micro-windfall, the Fuse Chicken office prepared a ceremony of sorts. In the days leading up to the campaign, team members downloaded a slew of sound effects to their computers, with the idea that they’d play them in celebration whenever they received a new pledge.

"That lasted for about two days," Fawcett says. It was an undeniable, unmitigated Kickstarter triumph. 1. 2. 3. 5. Corter Leather Bottle Hook by Eric Heins. Pictures of limited edition Kickstarter Edition below!

Touchscreens are amazing, but when you just want to turn on your flashlight, take a quick photo or send your location, simple actions can become a bit of a hassle.

Pressy - the Almighty Android Button! by Nimrod Back

Wake your screen -> Unlock it -> Exit your current running app -> Search for the app you want to use -> Launch it -> And finally, perform your desired Action.

Try and beat that time yourself! But what if you want to perform an action quickly and without having to deal with or look at the device? Pressy lets you perform any Action on your smartphone by using the most intuitive input – clicking a button – Saving you time and effort! Connecting the Pressy Button with the free Pressy app lets you easily customize and use your favorite, everyday actions. Getting started using Pressy couldn’t be any easier. Pressy is in the News! For Beginners. Heated Butter Spreader by THAT! We discovered that the current butter spreaders on the market are simply not adequate for spreading butter.

Heated Butter Spreader by THAT!

We wanted to create a spreader that can effectively spread cold butter, and we wanted to do it without using any electricity nor hot water. We also demanded a solution that is completely safe to handle by small children, meaning that there cannot be any sharp edges. After months of ideation, experiments and prototyping, we finally have our solution. SpreadTHAT! Works on the principle of heat transfer by which heat always flows in the direction of lower temperature.
