The Interactive CV
In these harsh economic times it comes as no surprise that employers are getting swamped with CVs. This poses two problems: first, it is pretty darn hard to make yours stick out from the rest. Secondly, the person reading your CV is probably not having the best of times. Graphic designer Robby Leonardi has managed to solve those two problems by creating a CV video game. Prospective employers are able to venture back and forth in a Mario-esque fashion whilst exploring Robbyâ€™s different selling points.

Smartphone Controlled Bike Lock A Kickstarter campaign has been created to cut those pesky 5 seconds out of your life you spend unlocking your bike. Bitlock is a specialised bike lock that works with your smartphone to give you a seamless bike locking/unlocking experience. The device automatically unlocks itself when it detects your smartphone is less than three feet away. Also working in reverse, the BitLock locks itself once you move over three feet away. The lock itself is made of cut-resistant steel, is waterproof and comes with a five year battery life that warns you when it is low. Along with its primary locking/unlocking abilities, the smartphone app allows you to see how many calories you have burned and has other features such as saving your bikeâ€™s location so youâ€™ll never lose your bike again!
