a to the rider of guidance, and equipped with smartphones tactile feedback function, 3 d printing titanium alloy handlebar. A pedal-powered “Snowpiercer (snow) the train”. A like James Bond’s ejection seat disc spring loaded place other people. These are just the bicycle design competition in Oregon (recent) present in the part of the creative concept.
this competition from five cities in the United States design firms and bicycle manufacturers matching combination, and ask them through the four common problems, making cities more attractive by bike: bicycle theft, rugged muddy roads, traffic navigation, and the transport of goods, either a laptop bag or a week’s groceries.
the winning design product, Denny, is by the design company Teague Taylor Sizemore joint design with bicycle manufacturers, the findings of this cooperation project proposed some low-key, but incredibly ingenious conception.
Lock the game
in the game, most of the participants in order to comply with security requirements, designed a typical holster U lock. And Teague and Sizemore invented a handlebar, it can be taken apart, parking, just the break out of the car can be like ordinary lock lock for it.
“for designers for bicycle lock seems to be a perpetual challenge: where is the lock should be installed, it should be size and volume, if it can ensure the wheel frame, it should be how to guard against theft, how it should be placed? “Project director Oliver, Mueller said. The solution is “I think we want it to fully integrated into the framework, so you never need to think about those questions.”
in addition to imitate the traditional u-shaped lock function, this design also ACTS as a virtual deterrent effect, huge vehicle makes the thief to ask where is the handlebars. So the thief wouldn’t risk the risk of being caught stealing a bicycle without handlebars cannot hit the road.
Teague and Sizemore also radically reconsider the mudguard. Denny did not like the traditional on the rear wheels of ordinary bicycle fender installation, but with a small rubber brush instead. It can be in when the rotation of the wheels to stain, it is an elegant and efficient choice.
Giant jet technology mountain bike
is famous for its design jumbo jet Teague, it will be advanced technology, such as electronic auxiliary motor and a smart battery management tools used in the design. As a result, designers to Denny is equipped with an electric motor, which makes it can cope with the complicated terrain, such as hills. Motor can also be in some cases, for the rider to increase the power, easy to complete its steep slope and muddy road. In addition, batteries hidden in the frame of the bicycle, and provide power to assist in the direction of light, when the driver to arrive can charge.
in addition to these eye-catching technology innovation, Denny the rigorous design inspiration mainly affected by Sizemore manufacturing bicycle for many years. A set of automatic gear shifting device can make the cyclist effortlessly drive on the winding road. R plate in comparison is more close to the ground, which reduces the bike’s centre of gravity. R plate bracket is integrated into the framework of bicycle, which means that it doesn’t as front wheel swing, so to avoid the leak of the goods. In front of the bike rung is very low, it makes the lady in the skirt when to get off to much easier and more convenient.
all in all, the improvement of these techniques is to the mode of bicycle commuting increased confidence on the fence. “Our goal is to design a bike, a car let them have confidence and trust, can one make them active it as transportation bicycle.”
Denny may not use 3 d printing of titanium alloy to make, but don’t expect it will be sold at a lower price. Despite the appearance of the bike is simple, but it is equipped with electronic auxiliary function, increase the cost of it and the technical complexity. “If the confidence as competitors for the car, we are also tried to break through a confident car function and role,” Mueller said. In addition, Denny’s fender is simulated, and relatively low cost products, so it has the potential to be aftermarket accessories.
Denny will be put into production by Fuji auto maker, its price or detailed information will be released in the spring of 2015 and the market sales.
Widely used can be traced back to a long time ago, from the early years in the Star Wars films on the screen to simulate the add, add binks, to now are popular in the song of ice and fire simulate the city of king’s landing on the green screen. Now, it is time for this applies only on video technology play a prominent role in broader areas. With the designers and technical director of double identity Nobumichi Asai developed a projection technique, called Omote can be simulated mapping in living model face makeup look.
at first, the model, please first from the most basic daily makeup look to show, then, start to model dress up drama stage, T stage shows the makeup look. OK, I think, this is a very casual makeup application, can be used to give a headshot, since the late photos plus makeup effect. I later discovered, however, with the moving of the model face, changes in the makeup look as technology set a precise change accordingly. I realized the expression ‘electronic makeup look, too underestimate this technology.
Asai did not disclose the technical details of this technology, but as SlashGear company, points out, Omote technology seems to be some sort of what was originally used for mapping technology to capture real-time facial movement, at the same time, accurate to the makeup design of each different projection on a different face. Asai isn’t the first use of CGI, but Omote attempt is the first time the designers use CGI work on a fixed object.
to start a journey, just like to get a fresh mango, excitement, full of expectation. The drop in the end of the trip, the journey is recorded, these records, is like a cup settle mans scoop, sweet into the lungs and delicious. Offer them when you put the essence of travel, share with others, you are happy and touched, may also be perceived by others. This is the founder of Wu Yong tells of mans dredge name origin.
at the beginning of the crowd positioning are those who have artistic temperament, love sharing travel enthusiasts. Mans dredge function is relatively simple: share travel notes, check super destination travel guides, mark has been to, want to go to the place, and users have clean nice personal home page.
mans dredge now is an interface looks a lot like a tourist community of douban, Wu Yong tell hunting cloud network, mans dredge product inspiration, actually also much to learn from and douban . At the beginning, as a senior user douban Wu Yong found that tourism is a fit and douban users quite high direction, at the time of douban has not yet been done. Then determine the direction after start to prepare.
there needs to be said, then do one of the biggest hornet’s nest, poor them interface is very messy, poor them even old-fashioned BBS interface, (but now, do they develop very quickly), did you want to product experience over their , Wu Yong convective cloud network said.
in 2013, the douban came to do travel, Wu Yong depressed for a period of time, because at that time there has been a prototype website. Suffer from didn’t find the right technical partners . First thought is: if douban travel online, there’s little the first-mover advantage. But it is, low-key douban travel online shortly after CEO Yang neck to give up, because scraping poor 9 data was accused, they decided to interrupt douban trip. After a time, friend Wu Yong found technology, finally mans dredge launched in May this year.
but still have to tell the truth, tourism product competition has a lot of, the hornet’s nest, poor them, bread, cicada travels have their user base. mans, fishing for lack of advantage of backwardness is a challenge. The mans get only web side, the APP is still in development, will be released at the end of October the ios version .
at present they have not yet financing, but Wu Yong revealed that it is in and a few investors approach.

Experience at this stage, they are in place, such as the travel notes published details of the link, they didn’t choose the traditional edit template, but developed a new publishing system, the user to write travel notes in the background, see the effect of the close to travel the effect after published. do human nature on the details, the word of mouth to do first, now is the most important .
in terms of team, the founder Wu Yong successively for 3 g portal, UC, love travel, beliefs, Internet literature youth, have been to the domestic, southeast Asia, Europe and so on more than 10 countries, more than 100 cities, to travel, products, and the Internet have a deeper understanding and views. Co-founder li jie, Tan Liang, Zhang Cheng respectively responsible for technology, operation, content, cheng li jie for 90 after a proficient in PHP and iOS geek. Tan Liang, Zhang Cheng cheng after 85, four per capita for the 3 g portal former colleagues, harmonious relationship.
time: in May 2014,
cloud network hunting: focus on startup, original technology blog! We help any dream of entrepreneurial team!. Commitment: completely free, beware of counterfeit.”
introduction: weak social relationship was ruled by weibo, strong relationship between social control micro letters and QQ, mobile social fields and start-ups grow? Social strangers could be the last of the whole mobile social map of feast, who can seize the last chance, who might be the next “WeChat”.
the author: nan
“once thought it outside of the micro letter no social, but devoted to the success of the devoted to prove you wrong.” Of a BBS industry in Beijing, says a social APP entrepreneurs.
weak social relationship was ruled by weibo, strong social relationship be WeChat and QQ control, over the past few years, thought no startup growth space of mobile social field, Momo but grew up in the shadow of tencent is strong.
as of June 30, Momo total registered users reached 148 million, more than 52.34 million monthly active users, Momo total group total more than 3.56 million. Sources, Momo C round completed in the first half of this year, valued at $2 billion, and has begun to IPO.
Momo success is a blow to the Chinese entrepreneurs were. Social strangers could be the last of the whole mobile social map of feast, who can seize the last chance, who might be the next “micro letter”.
a friend is one of the earliest into the strangers in the field of social entrepreneurship team. Three founders Hu Zhu towers, lerry, Jiang Mingliang had entrepreneurial experience. Hu Zhu towers was founded VXP technology, 2009 buyout by mediatek and Jiang Mingliang founded base media, television shopping company finally sold to long best group.
if third founder lerry, founded one net, this is a special social platform for business people, but not at home, the web site the user demand is not obvious, in the end he had to give up in this direction. In 2011, at the suggestion of lerry, three friends co-founded, social fields into a stranger.
“on the market at that time the only can draw lessons from the 9158 product shape, as a typical representative of show mode, 9158 has achieved stable earnings.” Recalling the start-up stage, Hu Zhu towers that 9158 model of the biggest benefit of object is to enable users to quickly find contacts, can find you want to see immediately once you enter the page content.
but the downside is that this show mode can only be one-to-many, a girl in the face of a lot of boys, finally can only be more people to experience the biggest pleasure, and prick silk is a kind of foil.
to learn the experience of 9158 friends to add to their positioning into after 90 young people oriented, grassroots users of mobile dating platform. When the user opens a friend overtime, main interface is a “show” hosted by beauty, in which a user group chat dating in speech way.
“can more kind of know each other through voice, relative to the text, the user’s oppressive feeling will be lower.” Hu Zhu towers, according to the user in a friend plus mainly through voice chat show talent, transfer the mood, compared to the video, voice and lighter, easier to promote produce content.
in Hu Zhu towers, mobile social networking tools can be divided into two categories, one is a delegate with micro believe it, and, easy to acquaintance social tools, these tools need to be strong social relationships, startup is difficult to access.
another kind is with Momo, friends, such as beauty shoot strangers dating tools. In this type of tool, the market has three directions: to stranger stranger represented by interested in dating, the user guide to each interest group; Represented by the taps, seconds, the content of the type of dating, with a special kind of content, such as images or video contact the user as the center.
the third innovation is friend through this kind of interaction, the formation of social APP users. This category is also the most concentrated areas of start-up companies. “In a way, as long as you can find an innovative way to strangers together, together can rushes out their own way.” , mobile social networking tools can be divided into two categories, one is a delegate with WeChat, correspondence, easecredit acquaintance said social tools.
he revealed, friends and the accumulated nearly 30 million registered users, 8.5 million active users, 3 million active users, is expected by the end of 2014 registered users, 45 million, 2015 by 80 million.
on the matching user create social problems, another social applications “widgets” more directly.
open together, users can immediately see dating opportunities. “The candlelight dinner, two people, AA and place of chaoyang district”, “go to mount tai travel, 5 people, AA, on August 25, hair”, users only need to click on the registration, by the sponsor, dating will attend.
together the two founders of coke and XiaoJun was once YY executives, leave after YY listed cash business.
“my wife is found on the web, dating is the needs of humanity, with YY’s experience, we naturally choose the mobile social entrepreneurship in this direction.” Coke said Monday.
before the development of micro poly, jiao a in-depth research devoted to devoted to user habits. “They are the use of the standard process, from near to first, and then find a suitable person to wait for a response during looking for the next right away, to leave a message. Need to strike up a conversation about 40 times, will have a reply, and if met together is more difficult, at least to bedding for over an hour.”
“someone says Momo is booty call artifact, in fact, booty call it is difficult to occur. If you are a prick silk, it is more impossible.” Jiao said, “the stranger devoted to this dating efficiency is very low, since the chat is to date, so we simply put the date link lead, each user can directly start date, if there are many people sign up, the initiator can choose on their own.”
in a focal point of view, because the us site, the vast majority are public security do not need to worry about. , according to the content of the due date, place, directly and indirectly help users to filter the object. You are a Gao Shuai rich, for example, are less likely to sign up for a site of bad silk date.
the focal one by using the word “find another social” to describe micro poly form of this product. “Find a thing first, most people start out a circle, finally achieve the purpose of quick match dating, this is more than Momo such as advocated by the social further interest.” And on the business model, because the user is direct us to a restaurant or cinema, this is very easy to cooperate with merchants to establish a business model, formed O2O closed loop.
for the center with the game
the small poly hope from the start if people from online to offline, then another strange dating tools “beibei” is just the opposite, they hope to continue to maintain people’s social online.
the founder of beibei Li Zheng was the founding staff of air network, after joining the cool 6, before the business has been engaged in the development of mobile video aspect. In 2013, after a serial entrepreneur, Li Zheng and his team have developed “beibei” – a game as the link to promote stranger dating social APP.
similar to friends and, beibei is also targeting the prick silk group. “In Momo this kind of product, if it is a prick silk, you are no chance. You don’t have money, and no appearance, no gift, how to attract the attention of others?”
Li Zheng solution is a game. In beibei, built-in of lianliankan, tanks war, rob close, including 10 kinds mild little game, the depth of the purpose of these games are not allow the user to play, but just to establish social contact with others of a bond.
he to “flip” brand game, for instance, the game can continuously according to the opposite sex photos, user can choose to “flip” brand and “a”, through the algorithm, the image will appear on the other phone, if the two sides each other over the brand, is between the two sides is very interested in, then it will direct connection on both sides, for deeper social.
“the most important social problem is 0 to 1 problem, namely how to make both of you hook up.” Li Zheng explained that both games and other social networking tools of voice, images, etc., is a form of content, the purpose is to let a stranger, quickly establish a link between the social.
it seems to Li Zheng Momo such applications to rely on a strong geographical position, the ultimate goal of Momo users were mostly establish offline contact, this does not apply to prick silk group, they have no money, shy, more hope in the online. In beibei platform, user dating has nothing to do with the geographical position, direct form of social geography country, tens of thousands of miles apart.
at the same time, choose the game, the most liquid form of mobile Internet as a social breakthrough, beibei is for their future commercial to find a good way.
in the applications of strangers dating, “game, value-added services and advertising” three big business model is very clear, and have been repeatedly verified. In micro letter game platform, a small game called “cool everyday run online top-up 12 days that break one hundred million yuan.
on the advertising model, Momo go fastest of all. Momo last week issued for local offline businesses online advertising platform “to store”, an important step in commercial exploration.
via “point-to-point” billing method is set up according to the merchants on the covered area and put in the time of message message users integrated computation. If the AD is at the heart of the location, in the rush hour, the relative capacity is big, the input of advertising costs will be high; If it is AD is in the same location, but at other times, traffic was relatively small, advertising costs will be reduced.
overall, to store advertising mechanism is similar to the practice of real estate “to sell the land”, pegged to the geographical location, traffic, period. In addition, the shop’s details page not only shows the user current location and merchants distance, can also directly through the map to navigate to the store.
businesses via “to store”, can be based on message devoted to LBS advertising function, according to their own requirements set scope of geographical position, put in the time, the precision of location near the minimum of 1 km, up to 3 kilometers, near the geographical directivity is almost on the market at present the strongest advertising platform.
“business model on the social product is not problem, the key now is how to find like-minded people quickly and efficiently, and keep them, now, sex and interests or two of the most effective way.” One investor said.
