Atomo created the future of coffee; coffee without a bean. Startup Atomo, located in Seattle, uses naturally derived sustainable ingredients to create a smooth coffee with a perfect caffeine kick. By reverse-engineering the coffee bean, Atomo has created a naturally-derived and sustainable coffee with the same caffeine you’d expect and no harsh acid or bitterness. They analyzed the molecular compounds  in a cup of coffee and used the coffee’s blueprint to design the perfect cup of coffee without using any coffee beans. They produce a ground coffee, which looks and acts like a regular ground coffee and can be used in drip machines, pour overs, cups and French presses. lees verder

Another hotel that plays with the social media addiction of many guests today! On 14 February guests of the ‘Check Out Suite’ have the chance to experience a unique hotel stay at Hotel Bellora in Gothenburg, Sweden. There’s only one condition – you need to put down your screens. They introduce the world’s first hotel room where the price is set according to how much you browse the web. Less browsing and more hanging out equals a better price. So, check-in, and then check-out! They want to encourage people that are staying in the hotel to spend more time together and less time looking at the phone screen. The Check Out Suite is an exciting concept that challenges our online behavior and incites us to spend more time together. Unfortunately the registration date has expired! Great way to increase your brand awareness!   lees verder
