REWIND< Are Cassette Tapes set for a Tech Renaissance?

by: Startacus Admin ~ 17th May 2017
Check out Elbow, a new cassette player concept, aimed at restoring the glory of the good ol’ fashioned cassette tape. If video killed the radio star, then CD killed the cassette, and MP3 the CD...(kinda). Ugh, you get what we mean.

Go Jauntly App set to make outdoor adventure a walk in the park

by: Startacus Admin ~ 26th April 2017
You could argue that technology has got a little in the way of recreational pursuit and outdoor adventure. Admittedly many of us (and perhaps sadly, many a child) would much prefer to sit behind a screen, than to go outside and make one's own adventures in the great outdoors. That’s why we are liking the look of Go Jauntly, a new App that promotes walking, helps you to discover and curate w...

Life in an urban environment, however, does not feature trees particularly heavily - there’s not much wood in a concrete jungle. So how ...
