Desk Camping and the Smell of Fresh Cut Grass

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of September 3rd brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas
Bus Stops Engage Soccer Fans with the Scent of Freshly Cut Grass: To engage soccer fans with the English Premier League, special bus shelter displays released the scent of freshly-cut grass and the sound of cheering stadiums once a button was pushed.

Promoted Tweet Used to Complain about British Airways: In a modern spin on the tale of David and Goliath, a disgruntled customer has found a new way to use social media to take on a big corporation.

Transparent Speaker Uses Gel to Produce Sound: The stretchy speaker is the first to use ions in place of electronics. It could be used to build noise-cancelling windows, shoes that make sounds during play, or music-making smartphone screens.

Products
Desk Camping: Started as Open Studio Club, is an initiative to bring people together – agencies with excess space meets freelancers in need of a working desk. At the site you can post spaces for rent… but what’s even more remarkable is that you can also post office spaces for free!

Moves Becomes a Platform: The launch of an API that third-party developers can use to take Moves data in new directions is a first step in making the app more useful beyond the current device you have it installed on. Nike Fuel better hurry up!

First Official Lego Case for iPhone Released: The new Lego Builder cases for iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod touch are designed to inspire creativity in adults and children alike, allowing them to build their designs directly onto the case’s integrated Lego baseplate.

Visuals
The Mobile Index: Mobext have started a glossary of words related to mobile technology, and decided to publish their ongoing mobile index in the form of this site. A clever reference to handheld communication using sign-language.

Textile Designer Seetal Solanki Revelas Her Five Most Inspiring Books: Her bookshelf is, unsurprisingly, injected with fashion, style and a big ol’ dose of craft.
