Bring the festival fun online
Turkcell is the biggest GSM operator in Turkey and they have launched an online festival. The events include football games and concerts given by popular Turkish singers. The more you participate on the website, the more points you gain. The points can eventually be traded for gifts.
Why it matters
This site basically brings the festival to your computer. It’s also a platform where people can get to know each other. Is this a new way to increase engagement across various platforms and transpose offline festival behaviour to the online world?
Folk has found its place again in popular music. Listen to some of the trending songs monitored by sites like hypem.com and wearehunted.com and you might hear something reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Bands like Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Avett Brothers, and American supergroup Monsters of Folk are gaining huge popularity in the US.
With the intent of bringing more energy to people all over the world, especially third world countries, the sOccket may come in very handy. The sOccket harnesses the kinetic energy of a soccer ball during normal game play and stores it for later power needs. Small electrical appliances, like an LED lamp, can be plugged into the sOccket.
This ball is supposed to stay functional for over 15 years and is made of recyclable material (95%). It also has enough energy to power a water processor or a ventilator.
