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...

CityTree is a Breath of Fresh IoT Air

by: Startacus Admin ~ 18th April 2017
Can you tell the difference between an Ash tree and an Oak? A Birch and an Aspen? Perhaps, or perhaps not; however, the thing everyone knows about trees is that they absorb CO2 and produce oxygen which, among other things, makes them vital to life on Earth. Life in an urban environment, however, does not feature trees particularly heavily - there’s not much wood in a concrete jungle. So how ...

Think 3D printing for knitting - Meet Kniterate the digital knitting machine

by: Startacus Admin ~ 5th April 2017
We are liking the look of Kniterate, a compact digital knitting machine (think 3D printing for knitting) that can create custom designed knitted garments like scarves, beanies, shoe uppers, sweaters, and dresses, and aims to bring fashion fabrication back to the masses!  Currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, it looks like the general public agree too, and with 20 or so days left (at th...

SMARTIFY aims to be your personal digital arts curator

by: Startacus Admin ~ 27th March 2017
Officially launching in May, SMARTIFY aims to be your personal digital arts curator (think Shazam for the Arts)...we took a look... Art is evocative, thought provoking, and possibly confusing. Some pieces we are happy to just enjoy, but others we want to know more about - more than the little plaque beside it can tell us. Who is/was the artist behind the name? Why did they paint this picture...

Howz - the IoT connect home system offering peace of mind

by: Startacus Admin ~ 2nd March 2017
We are loving the look of Howz - an innovative IoT connected home system that helps you stay linked with elderly relatives wherever you are. Developed by Manchester based health tech company Intelesant the Howz platform has been getting a little well deserved press recently. Not wanting to miss out, we thought it about time we also shared word on this connected home system that offers p...

Museum in a Box - replica museum objects in a tiny box

by: Startacus Admin ~ 27th February 2017
We are loving the look and sound of Museum in a Box - an edtech company from London who are aiming to increase the accessibility of museums and their objects with an innovative interactive handling box. Intrigued? Museum in a Box  - is pretty much just that. It is a box of miniature objects found in museums from around the world that you can have sent to your school, office or to home. Insid...

Does RunTheCEO have the legs to create meaningful connections?

by: Startacus Admin ~ 26th February 2017
We are liking the idea of RunTheCEO. Connecting startups & entrepreneurs with leading CEO's through running, RunTheCEO gives startup founders the opportunity to pitch their businesses to leading CEO’s through an exclusive running event. It’s certainly a fresh way for meeting and greeting with CEO’s that you would perhaps otherwise meet in a meeting room - all suited and boot...

We’re liking the look of Joto - An Internet connected drawing board

by: Startacus Admin ~ 22nd February 2017
It’s kinda like a load of stuff we’ve seen before. A part digital made physical product. But Joto, we think, is looking 100% blooming brilliant. Joto is an internet connected drawing board that makes digital content into a physical thing by drawing it with a pen type device. Winner of the Design Museum ‘Design of the Year public vote’,  Joto is currently at the stage ...

We're liking the sound of… Rebel Book Club The what? Rebel Book Club? Yep, Rebel Book Club is much like you’d expect - it’s a book club, but with an application process to be approved to then attend. London based.  So why are you writing about it on Startacus? Well the type of books they read range from books focused on creativity, motivation, business, entrepreneurshi...

Polar Bear Startup Pitching not for the cold hearted

by: Startacus Admin ~ 19th February 2017
We’ve written plenty about startup pitch competitions here at Startacus. But if you want shock value, we think this one pretty much beats the rest. Think ice bucket challenge x 100, whilst also giving your startup pitch, and you’ve kinda got the concept of Polar Bear Pitching. We only heard about Polar Bear Pitching just after this years event had already taken place (14th a...
