Greengame - making sustainability the norm

by: Startacus Admin ~ 26th November 2017
War, as the overused cliché goes, never ends. But as terrible as war is, its capacity for total annihilation perhaps pales in comparison with something that might seem more tame and less immediate: the environment. Breathable air and drinkable water are quite high on the list of things we probably want to keep around, while climate change is something we’d really rather do without (w...

Izzy Wheels - they're "re-inventing the wheel"

by: Startacus Admin ~ 14th November 2017
People like to customise things - to put a personal touch on them. From flames or stripes down the side of your car (which make it go faster, obviously) to pink fuzzy dice hanging on the mirror; from plastering the underside of your skateboard with stickers and cutouts of Hulk to...whatever the hip young people do with hoverboards these days; from sticking a playing card through the spokes of your...

Aire - the world's first personal digestive tracker

by: Startacus Admin ~ 29th October 2017
When food does not properly break down in our digestive system, fermentation causes gasses such as hydrogen and methane to be released. These can cause all sorts of problems, not least of all pain and bloating. Different people are affected to varying degrees, and our digestive systems handle foods differently, which is why most of us know someone who always seems to be complaining about bloating ...

Pointy offers local shops the chance to compete online

by: Startacus Admin ~ 1st October 2017
Search for any product online, and the first result or two (or three or four or five) is likely to be Amazon. As handy as Amazon can be for shopping, it and other online shopping megastores are proving disastrous for some small, local shops. Small businesses are closing their doors in record numbers, even after putting all of their products online to try to keep up with the times. At the end of t...

Come Dine With WeFiFo

by: Startacus Admin ~ 19th September 2017
Have you ever wanted to be a chef but lack the skill? Cook for the less discerning! Have you ever watched Come Dine With Me and thought, ‘I want to do that but without the cameras’? You’ve ruined the TV show but stumbled across the premise of WeFiFo. Kind of. WeFiFo, rather than something an angry giant might say, is short for We Find Food. The idea is that anyone, of any cookin...
