Samsung stepping up in the un-boxing experience

Most phones come with flimsy manuals with complicated language and jargon. These books, which can live on a bookshelf actually contain the phone.
Each page reveals the elements of the phone in the right order, helping the user to set up the sim card, the battery and even slide the case onto the phone.

The second book is the main manual – the phone actually slots into this and becomes the center of attention.
Arrows point to the exact locations the user should press, avoiding confusion and eliminating the feeling of being lost in a menu.

Intel’s Virtual Footwear Wall for Adidas Turns Boutiques Into Shoe-topias

Intel partnered with Adidas to show off what the wall might look like, and the results are pretty sweet. Designed by U.K. shop Start Creative, the wall renders products in 3-D, and allows a shopper to spin and zoom in on the shoes, and call up specs from a touch-screen display. Particularly hot models, like the company’s F50 soccer shoe, have accompanying video and relevant information (like the fact that F50-clad feet scored 44 goals in last year’s World Cup).

BCKCHNL – From Nation

BCKCHNL (short for Back Channel) is a super simple Twitter search app from Nation. Built with ’2nd Screens’ in mind, so whether that’s monitoring a hash-tag you’re interested, or following a specific keyword. The app uses javascript to constantly refresh the feed with new results so past the initial search it’s essentially a passive experience of watching the tweets roll by. “We wanted a simple clean interface that worked across big screens, projections, tablet devices and mobile devices alike”

Perfect for keeping up with the XFactor slag match.
