Flagons Den: serendipity for start-ups

Dear Flagons,
It’s fireworks night!!! Coat, gloves, scarf, sparklers and burns cream… :)
My wife to me: “It’s OK Baby, I’ll light this one, you go and light that big one that keeps falling over…”

No nudity this week, I promise.
But there was serious aggression contained in the #bigcrazyideas on Thursday’s Flagons Den. A few snippets:

Turn left, Tony: Cyclist killing game to promote the awful plight of cyclists on London’s roads
Boy Racer: using GPS and road data to beat average times while driving
[No name as yet]: A networking platform that allows start-up community members to switch jobs for one day – please take a few moments for this survey: http://www.kiddroma.in/survey/pitch_survey.html

Helping early stage entrepreneurs with what’s next

For newbies, what happens at Flagons Den: Everyone in the room take turns to stand up, introduce who they are, what they do and if they had a crazy idea to pitch, what that would be. From there, conversation ensues based on anything that piques the interest of others in the room.

We keep the group size small enough to ensure the conversations are intimate and varied. Everyone leaves having been able to share ideas in a relaxed environment. That is what makes Flagons Den special: no pressure, just chatter.

Patent of the week

Seeing with your hand

Ever dropped cash under the couch and spent a while trying to feel out where it is? Why should you just have to rely on touch to find your coin? Google recently received a patent for “Seeing with your hand” technology, allowing you to see what is under your couch by placing your hand there!
The patent describes cameras in the fingertips, gyroscopes and accelerometers in the fingers, a compass, a Wi-Fi chip, a CPU hosted in the glove’s palm and maybe even a display panel of some kind. This patent could be powerfully used with Google Glass so that you can see when your hand records through the glasses!
