Meet Gboard: Search. GIFs. Emojis & more. Right from your keyboard

In 2014 a few of us had been talking about future surfaces and interfaces. There’d been some conversations about text as interface and other stuff. We’d played with the idea of using the keyboard as a space to try a little hack. But nothing had bitten, so we put it away in the top drawer. In 2015 another project we’d… Continue reading Meet Gboard: Search. GIFs. Emojis & more. Right from your keyboard

LA Funtimes… with the Leica Q (Typ 116)

It feels strange to write that. I’ve talked about it before a little bit; but have only just found the breathing… Continue reading Hello Google

TweetFuel. A new(ish) experiment from Stinkdigital

Tweetfuel from Stinkdigital on Vimeo. TweetFuel is an Arduino-controlled experiment that uses the Nike+ FuelBand to measure the health of our Twitter account. This is something I meant to write about a long time ago. I also wanted to write a detailed and smart post about how and why the project came about, what it’s… Continue reading TweetFuel.
