I’m not a great fan of Ferrari, mainly because of the douchy users of their cars and the random franchise they decided to market, but I must say the sound of those engines gives me goosebumps. In a positive way.
I was planning to make a custom clock as a special present for the wedding of a friend of mine, but quite likely I won’t be able to complete it in time.
However in the process of sketching up the main idea and thinking of what parts I’m going to use to put it together it occured to me that it might match well if I use bike parts.
If I had my own place I would definetely make it for myself but for now I’ll just keep exploring components and costs. I’ll make a proper 3D model later based on the real component dimensions to make sure it’s viable.
Cook-Up is a smartphone application running on the Android platform and it was developed specifically for the upcoming launch in Italy of the Sony-Ericsson XPeria X-10 mini. The application is a cooking assistant. It allows one to input available ingredients and receive a random recipe with those ingredients in return. It also serves as a handy shopping list that can be completed with items from the selected recipes. Moreover the application can match specific drinks to foods and ingredients or vice-versa.
The content (recipes and matches) is to become user generated after the services picks up using a regular predefined database. There is also a section for rating and commenting on recipes and for adding your own such. Active users would get promoted using “Chef Levels” based on the quiality of their recipies and could be eventually rewarded by being featured in magazines or being introduced to celebrity chefs for special cooking sessions.
Our proposal won the second of the two main prizes in this workshop/contest and is potentially being reviewed for development in order to be released built-in in the XPeria phones upon their market launch.
