Mint Site: Iteration 1

Posted in News by Utku Can

The hardest person to design for is yourself. All intuition disappears and you over question every decision.

That's a familiar tale, I'm sure, to any digital company that ever embarked on redesigning their website. For ages, we too have been suffering from this. In the drive for perfection, it's easy to end up not doing anything. So, we decided to do something.

Posted in Reflections by Shoshi Roberts

How far can we get from predicting the future by looking backwards? Probably decently far, but I find it more fun to predict the future from sci-fi. If we can imagine it, we're that much closer to making it. This next year might not be the one where you get your flying car or your hover board, but I'd love to be proven wrong there.

One week left for smash hit Projecteo

Posted in News by Benjamin Redford


Hello everyone! I'd like to introduce our latest product, Projecteo.

Projecteo is a tiny Instagram projector about the size of matchbox. It works by projecting light from an LED through a 'wheel' of instagrams developed onto Kodak 35mm slide film. Wheels are replaceable and hold nine images. You turn the wheel to cycle through your images.

Projecteo smashed expectations and hit its Kickstarter goal of $18,000 in under 22 hours.

The campaign has been covered by a range of great press and has even had celebrity endorsements. Highlights include:

“Now this is SICK!!!” - Nick Cannon

“For committed fans of retro photography apps such as Instagram, it could be the ultimate way to continue the retro theme.” - Daily Mail Online

Thanks CharityHack!

Posted in News by Noam Sohachevsky

I joined CharityHack over the weekend. It was an awesome hack. I just wanted to say thanks.

To @johnxcom and @sauliuz and the rest of the @charityhack crew.

To the caterers, who fed us all so well. The mini-burgers were a delight.

To all the hackers who made the place feel full of energy and drive.

To @stefek99, half hacker, half raver, constant source of entertainment.

To @pornelski, an excellent developer. We made OhCharity together and it scooped the top prize! (OhCharity needs some more work, don't make a widget just yet).

I'm already looking forward to Charity Hack 2013.
