the LED's though, impressive.
 
A piece of connected fitness innovation we can get behind.
Joen Choe is raising funds for Smart Rope on Kickstarter! The Evolution of a Classic. Smart Rope is an LED-embedded jump rope that connects to your smartphone.

I see they have exceeded their goal on Kickstarter(60k goal and 131k received with 10 days to go).  The fitness devices are amazing.  I use fitbit and I was even able to wear it while I was playing volleyball a week ago. I will wear it again when I play soccer this spring. I need to get back into jumping rope.

Do you have $50K burning a hole in your pantaloons?
Have a #petrolsexual  addiction to naked bikes?
Have your knees ever knocked to the thought of a superbike that looks like it escaped the set of aliens?

This is what 172 mph (276 kph) looks like: the Bonnervielle-record-breaking Confederate Motors, Inc. Hellcat X132.

Is there such a thing as too much carbon fiber?
I like how this +Lamborghini Aventador 'Carbonado' emphasizes RPM over traditional speedometer.

I guess the answer to the question "Is there such a thing as too much carbon fiber"... is NO... I want carbon fiber (fibre) for breakfast!  :)
It's high in fiber. ;)

So youre thinking about joining an accelerator

As a startup who recently went through a summer in an accelerator, I would agree with all of the points +Dave McClure​ makes.
I'm surprised he doesn't curse in this article ;-)

I would add:
1) for a startup, ROI goes both ways in an an accelerator. As a founder, you create more value if you invest all of your time to taking advantage of the connections, events and opportunities during the program. So basically you get what you put in and none of that doing an accelerator remotely nonsense.
2) time flies by so see #1
3) given that most accelerators are under staffed and over worked as per Dave, do not assume LP's will automagically solve your problems. Be proactive, they are there to help you.
4) If you find yourself in an accelerator that isn't pulling its weight "light a flair, and communicate your goals clearly to them"

For me it was a great experience to learn how Silicon Valley worked and being from the D.C. area, qualifying a startup on the different coasts was pretty glaring. Maybe I should write something long-er form about my XP.
 
+Dave McClure keeps  it sweet and simple in his most recent +Medium post, Unit Economics for Accelerators. Checkout his 7 bullet points highlighting the difficulties to make a great #startup  accelerator: http://goo.gl/ORZdjH

What do you think of them?

Mught be a scam
The controversial organization won’t answer our questions. We’ll just have to address their video response instead.

Yea. They never made any real updates of the project. No spaceship is being made. All their videos are just talking about goals but no real partial plan.
