Fingopay

Nowadays people usually use credit cards to pay in shops, clubs, restaurants and other places. We can spend a lot of money just thanks to a little peace of plastic with a chip. That was a brilliant solution but now we have something even better than that. Fingopay is a completely new way of paying for your grocery!

Fingopay is a payment system where the only thing you need to have while making the transaction is your own finger, nothing else. This method is solving many problems. Firstly, you can be sure that you won’t forget your credit card or wallet so you will be always prepared to pay. More more awkward moments in gas station or grocery shops. Secondly, you can’t loose your finger so you can be sure that your money are save with you. Thirdly, there is no way that somebody will rob you.

But how it works, you might ask. Here is a wideo with an explanation:

The company’s head quarter is located in London where the production is launch since 2015. They have created in collaboration with hitachi a device that uses biometric Vein ID. Thanks to that it provide us with safest method of protecting our data because there is no higher mathematical certainty of proving someone’s identity. Fingopay has successfully completed trials with Visa and Worldpay. It’s safe, simple and reliable payment system.

Nowadays everything needs to be fast, consumers are getting frustrated and easily bored. Moreover we’re not a big fun of waisting our time in a queue. But here is the solusion also for that! No more PINs, passwords, cash or bank cards. The only thing you need is your finger. Whole paying process is smoother and quicker.

To use this device you need to go through 3 stages, the 1st one is that you have to register on the website and link your card with your finger when you are paying at a shop or other place equipped with Fingopay, then pay with your finger, and to finish you will receive the Payment confirmation by e-mail.

Here is a schema of the way it works

  • first you put your finger in the device
  • The LED light is projected on your finger
  • This light will go through your finger to the CCD camera that recognises you

It means that you need to be present. It won’t work if somebody will cut your finger and try to put it to device, pretending to be you. Still not convinced?

At the beginning it was awkward to be caught while making a selfie. Maybe not for all of us but for me it was really awkward moment and I wanted to eliminate such situations. Then everything changed when selfie sticks appeared on the market. Even before them we all knew that making photos not only on vacations is just a normal situation. Using selfie stick everything became more easier and common.

Selfie stick is great and helps but this post is going to show you that selfie stick was nothing comparing to this new product invented by a group of students. I am talking about 3-Axis Stabilizer!

Toothbrush – brush your teeth in 10 seconds!

Would you like to have a toothbrush that is going to clean your teeth just in 10 seconds? If the answer is YES you should definitely read this post!

Amabrush is a new product that can brush your teeth without any help in just 10 seconds. How is it possible and how does it work you might ask. It is really easy! Only thing you need to do is put the toothbrushes into your mouth and it automatically will start to brush your teeth , all at once. It does not look like a typical brush, it is bigger and has completely different dimensions.

Here is a quick movie which is going to show you how it works and how does it look like:

This is first fully automatic toothbrush in the world. The only thing you need to do is press a single button to clean your teeth. 10 seconds to clean your teeth sounds insane but it really works because all teeth are clean simultaneously so there is no need to clean them more time. Dentists recommend to brush teeth at least 2 minutes but if we need to have in mind that we are brushing one teeth then the other one and so on. Using this method allows you to brush each teeth for 1.25 seconds but using Amabrush you can clean each surface for 10 seconds because all teeth are cleaned at the same time. Moreover you can save time and have perfectly clean teeth all in one.

Facts about the benefits of the product:

Plastic silicon from which the brush is made kills up to 99.99% of bacteria.

You can save up to 100 days of your life only by using Amabrush instead of using a typical manual or electric toothbrush.

Product is eco friendly because of low voltages technology which is used.

You don’t need water to use it – generates savings.

Toothpaste is already included in a small capsule which is placed in the toothbrush so there is no waste generated. Furthermore brush is automatically providing the perfect amount of toothpaste each time you use it. One capsule last for more than a month and costs only 3 euro. You can have three different flavours: Extra Fresh (blue), Whitening (white) and Sensitive (rose – without fluoride).

Sharing with other people is possible because of magnetic connection which allows people to change mouthpiece and use the same handpiece.

Battery lasts for 28 washing sessions (2 weeks if your brushing your teeth twice a day). It gives you opportunity to take your device wherever you are and clean your teeth in only 10 seconds without even going to the bathroom.

You need to change you mouthpiece each 3-6 months to be sure that everything is effective and works well. Cost of one mouthpiece is 6 euro.

Still not convinced that this is a best toothbrush?

Evrnu – creating the future of textiles!

“One person’s trash is another’s treasure.”

Textile and clothing recycling is a beneficial activity for both sides – we have companies which are providing us with needed clothes and on the other hand we have customers with specific needs, tastes and preferences. Each year we buy lots of new clothes which are more trendy or just because we like them, not because we really need them. People throw away their old clothes every year statistically each American throws away 37 kilograms of textile and clothing per year! Only 15 % of this number gets donated or recycled. Why shouldn’t we make it 100 % recycled?

Evrnu is a startup with specific social purpose. This company is registered in the State of Washington, USA. By 2014 Evrnu started collecting money from investors. Evrnu makes cotton recyclable. People create 12 millions tons of textiles each year. Millions tons of clothing are landfilled but soon it will only be a history.

Evrnu makes cotton recyclable, taking the millions of tons of garment waste and up cycling it into premium fiber for the use in new, high-quality garments.

Facts about clothing industry worldwide:

As an example,  Levi Strauss and Co. company produce first pair of 511 model jeans by using five discarded cotton T-shirts and the Evrnu technology.
