…RYZ wants to customize your kicks?


RYZ is trying to be the Threadless of the shoe world, and looks to be doing a pretty good job at it so far.

Like the other user generated content companies, you can design a shoe, vote on shoe designs buy the winners, and discuss shoes with other shoe lovers in the community.

Right now it’s still in beta, so there aren’t a lot of shoes in the store just yet, but what’s there shows promise, and it’s definitely got a nice little vibe going. Plus, rocking custom kicks is sure to score you some instant street cred, so pick up a pair and support the artists.


…It’s Website Wednesday: Obamicon.me?


Since outbreaks of Obamania are sure to continue through the week and into the weekend, I though I’d point out a great way to vent some of that excess Obama energy: The Obamicon Generator.

An Obamicon is an image inspired by Shepard Fairey’s iconic Obama poster, and features red, white and blue cell shading with a simple message underneath.

To make your own Obamicon, just take a picture with your webcam or upload a photo, choose your message, and let the Obamicon generator go to work. Then, you can submit your newly minted Obamicon to the gallery, and vote on others that have been submitted as well. Finally, take your Obamicon and run it through Obamicon.me’s Zazzle store, and you’ll soon have more Obamicon mugs, hats and t-shirts than you’ll know what to do with.

…iPhone Apps are going to be amazing?

If you’re wondering what kind of capabilities and unique features iPhone Apps are going to have, look no further than OmniFocus and Schmap.


OmniFocus is a professional-grade personal task manager that taps into the iPhone’s GPS to provide you with location based task lists.

OmniFocus Demo

At the store?

OmniFocus automatically pops up with the grocery list that you put together when you drive up.

Back at work?

OmniFocus automatically switches over to your list that you put together with work related tasks.

Neat, huh?

Schmap Logo

The second application, Schmap, which is actually a currently available web application, though it will no doubt be something that takes advantage of becoming a native App as well, uses the iPhone’s gyro sensor to automatically change the view based on how you are holding the phone.

Schmap Demo

Hold it vertical, and a list of available destinations pops up; but switch and hold it horizontal, and you’re automatically presented with a map of locations and additional information.

What will they think of next?



…The Icon Watch is classically chic?

Icon WatchShow off your love of design with an Icon Watch from the MoMA Store.

The shape is supposed to look like a computer icon, and the dot matrix/8-bit look will definitely get some attention, so it’s an easy way to label yourself a designer.
