How to make money designing custom Snapchat geofilters

TwitterFacebook

Swipe right on Snapchat on any given day and you might stumble upon a custom geofilter designed for someone's special occasion, be it a birthday, wedding or even a promposal. But have you ever wondered who's behind these bespoke filters?

Custom geofilters are the must-have party accessory for the Snapchat generation and, now, talented designers are setting up businesses to quench people's thirst for bespoke filters. 

"Snapchat geofilters are the millennial equivalent of a birthday card," says John Scott, founder of SnapThatFilter, a small business that designs bespoke geofilters for special occasions. Snapchat's on-demand geofilter site lets users choose from a broad selection of geofilter templates that can be mapped to a time and location. The site also allows people to upload their own designs, which go through a strict approval system by the Snapchat's geofilter team. Prices for Snapchat's templates begin at $5.  Read more...

Goddamn it Samsung, just let the Galaxy Note 7 stay dead

TwitterFacebook

Samsung is flying high again. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are gorgeous, appear to have very safe batteries, and they're selling really well.

Things couldn't be any better for the Korean electronics giant after its last flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 7, burst into flames last year and threatened to ruin the entire company.

And yet, Samsung refuses to let the tainted Note 7 stay dead — a decision that could end up ruining all of the good fortune it's rebuilt.

A new report from Korea's ET News published Wednesday says Samsung will begin selling recycled Note 7's in South Korea starting in June. Read more...

I can confirm Google’s massive Street View camera backpack is heavy AF

TwitterFacebook

What do you get when you put an almost 4-foot high backpack on someone that's barely 5'2"? 

A lot of screaming, balancing and wobbling. 

So it wasn't the most graceful when I tried on Google's Street View Trekker, one of several pieces of equipment the company uses to capture its Street View imagery.

The 3'9" foot high (1.2m) Trekker consists of 15 cameras in a ball-like shape, mounted  on a pole, powered by a computer backpack. The set up is fully waterproof, and battery-powered up to 8 hours.

It's able to capture the 360-degree images we see on Google Maps' Street View. Read more...

The Cassini spacecraft dove between Saturn and its rings: Here are the photos to prove it

TwitterFacebook

Cassini shot the gap and lived to tell the tale.

The Saturn-exploring spacecraft managed to successfully fly through the 1,500 mile gap between Saturn and its rings and survive seemingly unscathed.

New photos beamed home after it completed that daredevil maneuver show the planet's atmosphere from a closer distance than ever before. At its nearest point, Cassini flew about 1,900 miles above  Saturn's clouds, which are mainly comprised of hydrogen and helium. 

While the unprocessed images still look pretty rough, they show details of Saturn's atmosphere that aren't usually on display.  Read more...
