Rent eco-friendly boats & yachts. Electric, wind or solar-powered.

Posted on by Little Nice Things

With the rise of the collaborative economy became easier then ever to get on a boat. Any boat. In some way is great to see our canals, rivers and oceans full of boats. But at the same time, the more motor boats we have on the water, more polluted it becomes. 

Luckily, there are alternatives to motor boats, but for some reason they are not having the attention they deserve.

Therefore, we are on a mission to promote the rental of eco-friendly boats & yachts. Electric, wind or solar-powered, with our new marketplace.
And also promote ecotourism experiences such as Dolphins & Bird watching, etc.

Triggered by the issue of global warming we want to contribute towards a healthier and eco-friendly planet.

By renting 100% green boats, we aim to eliminate fuel costs/noise/smell and exhaust fumes. 
We want to give people the opportunity to experience sustainable technology hands on. 
We can all have fun without harming the environment. Calmness, that’s what we all need.

Here, to a sustainable future. Let’s make the world great again.

Interaction Design Tools

Posted on by Little Nice Things

Prototype like a wizard

Here we are in mid 2015, and the world of interaction design tools keeps in agile mode, with more and more players in the scene.

We have been using static design tools that don’t necessarily represent the world around us and the devices we use. The world around us is in motion, and the progressive Experience Designer feels the need to replicate that flux in his digital projects. There’s a need to simulate transitional interfaces, the same way life flows organically from event to event.

Pen and paper might be a good starting point to get your ideas out quickly, but when you want to take things to the next level you will need interactive prototype tools.

Here comes the pain point, with an ocean of new design and prototype tools ( Invision, Marvel, Flinto, Form, Origami, Pixate, Framer JS, Atomic, ... ) which one should designers choose?

Here, an overview of the most popular ones, on Medium

Duolir, books with subtitles.

Posted on by Little Nice Things

In collaboration with the talented Giwan Persaud, Little Nice Things contributed to the creation of this brand which we called Duolir.

Duolir is an app for iPhone & iPad that allows you to read with subtitles. Merging the pleasure of reading a book with the convenience of learning a new language.

Simply tap in one paragraph to read in another language. 

The app was carefully crafted, so the translation doesn’t come from an automatic source, instead you will always find the author’s real interpretation. 

As a plus, independent Bilingual authors can also create their own books and sell on Duolir.

Web Summit 2014

Posted on by Little Nice Things

Was truly an honour to exhibit in the Alpha Program and speak on the People's Stage.
Fun and inspiring 3 days. Too short to meet personally 22 000 people in Dublin.

The future looked a little closer. 

From smart homes to smart watches, from wearables to Internet of Things, from Virtual Reality to tasty food made by plants.
We saw it all.

From Hackers to Founders, CEO’s to volunteers.
Startups, investors and journalists following and running away from each other.
Was a real game played with business cards.

We were inspired by ideas that promote a collaborative society and especially economy.

Where the question most heard was: How do you monetize?
And the question less heard: How do you humanize?

Slow Wifi resulted in fast serendipity. Yes, real human interaction.

We had great celebrities like Bono, Tony Hawk and the massively photographed Eva Longoria.
But we also had colourful sheeps.

Lisbon’s Codacy won the Coca-Cola Pitch Competition.
But we all preferred to drink coffee or Guiness.

All the startups seem to have a common goal:
Facilitate people’s lives, ( and meet some nice investors on the way ).

Here, to the brightest minds of our planet.
The innovators.
