Pendulum balls (well, not quite, two strings for each) exhibit wonderful motion.

I will be in Prague in September and to be honest, i have to make sure i will not be distracted by the amazing location. At the uxcamp europe my room was filled - i hope it will be the same in Prague....

the amazing thing is, apple is supporting my workshop :) The good seats are nearly gone. \o/ https://goo.gl/rU3Beq
 
I didn't had someone to terrorize with my responsive design so i had to code it on my own. "code" well, i'm not an engineer am i. If there is no time, the simplest solution is better than nothing. (i still think its a good case study)
On Saturday September 5th i will host a creative iPad workshop at the Academy for new Illustration and design in Berlin. I'm very exited this idea of mine is happening because i believe in touch technology. Adonit is a well known manufacturer for iPad stylus hardware and one of my clients.

590 km later which i did traveled via bike, train and ferry I think i cycled about 400 km I can say i went around the öresund which is the part of the baltic sea between sweden and denmark. https://goo.gl/Bn58AX

I've seen a stunning Marine exhibition in Denmark, saw amazing landscapes in sweden and a very nice viking museum, slept well in a villa and my gear broke down. somewhere. Travelling by bike isn't fun its it is good for your head. In this crazy fast world you slowing down to my own speed was a good thing. I've fell in love with many details and i can just recommend it.

hei +Greg Nudelman well, Hercules is building its bikes in germany. My other bike is a Trek bike and there are just three things which matter: Does it fit to your body (ergonomic is important) and how much weight (i'm good with 12 kg) and how good are the gears. My gears are very simple, medium quality is enough. The worst case is you have to get new gears which isn't a big deal.

Trek bikes are still made in the US and you should be able to get a good touring bike.

I'm responsible for: animations, Illustrations and concept (card stack was a request).
I'm not responsible for the app icon and business idea, naming or content graphics / splash etc. And a few buttons are in there which i don't support.
Design = material - I hope so. i loved that team. Doesn't matter what you build if your team is great. Let me just point out, i spend less than half a month with them, gave them a lot of knowledge e.g. how to collaborate, communicate about design, concept, quick interviews and sprint together.

i consider this as a pretty good start for a Berlin based startup with 0 material experience and this amount of time. Of course there is room for being better. I like to see it positive and point out how much they archived with little time.

do you know these people: arguing about kids always just playing with electronics? and how bad this is? sometimes i can hear them until they can see what I'm doing. well, i admit kids could use some introduction into technology which is more than code. code is... boring. what code can do isn't. and i can understand why kids think it is boring even with a loveley interface. I would like to see general education about productivity with all kind of devices in all kind of fields.

i chose the ipad because of creativity. for everyone is a good solution out there.

...as usual you are right Marie :D
I adore the logic formed by the code ;)

...but i never had the intention to talk to a machine. I refuse this, maybe i am the only one ;)

Also, eigentlich soll man ja die kleinen Läden unterstützen. Mein Hercules Trekking Fahrrad ist nichts besonderes aber nachdem ich mit zwei kleinen Läden so dermaßen schlecht beraten wurde und die Inspektion plus Gangschaltung einstellen 4mal teurer war um dann auch noch nach 2 wochen gar nicht mehr zu gehen... ...da geh ich jetzt immer wieder zu stadler. Mein eher bescheidenes Rad wird dort regelmäßig gewartet, die Beratung ist sehr gut und transparent die Mitarbeiter seit Jahren die selben. Wer sein Rad sauber hinbringt tut dem Mechaniker einen gefallen und wird nicht nur freundlich bedient sondern auch zügig, termingerecht und zuverlässig.

Das essen war wie immer gut, die unfreundlichkeit hat mir aber mein geburtstagsessen ziemlich verdorben. Auch mit freundlichkeit und lob für das essen hat sich die bedienung nicjt dazubherabgelassen freundlich zu sein. Trinkgeld gabs trotzdem weil die kollegen ja nett sind

Ich habe jetzt schon 3 Artikel neu gekauft oder umgetauscht weil mir nicht gesagt wurde das es auch eine bessere option gibt. Dazu kommt das es vollkommen überteuert ist. Speedo verkauft seine wahre für 10 € hingegen dieser laden für 23 € Ich unterstütze den Einzelhandel gern gegen eine freundliche und kompetente Beratung sowie auswahl und anprobe. Hier jedoch wurde ich schon dreimal "zum kauf beraten"

Ich finde das Museum ist wunderschön gestaltet. Ein bisschen voll sogar. Ich wünschte man könnte um mehr Fahrzeuge ganz herum laufen aber es gibt viel zu kucken.

Der Service was sehr nett. Was ich übel nehme ist die ansage "dann erwarte ich aber 20 prozent trinkgeld". Das essen war weniger als gut. mehr als 10 € für vertrocknete nudeltaschen. Dann klebt der service ständing und möchte dauernd neue bestellungen aufnehmen schafft es aber nicht den espresso zum dessert zu bringen. kurz und gut, wer zuviel geld hat und nichts mehr schmeckt der kann gern dort essen gehen.

Kompetente und ehrliche Beratung. Kein schnickschnack nichts aufgeschwatzt und genau hingeschaut. Mit ein paar guten tips bin ich auch nach hause gegangen. Sehr zu empfehlen.
