Jukely Makes Going to Concerts Seamless

Jukely is a fascinating concept that’s going to change the concert/music industry in the metropolitan areas. Jukely allows subscribers to go to as many music shows as you want for $25 a month.

The UI is dead simple to use. You navigate left and right to see the list of shows and the selected artist’s music video starts playing on the right. Once you find the show you want to see, you grab a pass. That’s it. You can even connect to services like Rdio, Spotify, Last.fm and SoundCloud to get personalized recommendations on upcoming shows. This is also such a great way to discover and experience live music that would have been missed otherwise.

This seamless experience of not needing to think about purchasing a ticket and when to go is what they are trying to sell it seems — just as CDs progressed into MP3s and then into unlimited cloud streaming service. I would love to see this innovation move further into ticketing experience as well. Rather than having your physical or digital ticket scanned one at a time, you simply walk into the concert with your smartphone — similar to how you can purchase a product at the Apple Store with their mobile app and walk out after it’s been purchased.

I’m quite curious to see how they are or plan on dealing with users distributing screenshots of the ticket to others. Will they be checking IDs? Or whether you’ll be able to hand out a limited number of tickets to your friends if you are not able to go to many shows in a given month for whatever reason. I will share my thoughts here after my hands-on experience.

The concert matchmaking interface makes it easier for you to find your “date" via Facebook.

How Not to Sell Wearable Devices

This is an example (ad for Microsoft Band) of how not to market your wearable product. The language doesn’t seem very authentic and it creates a sense of barrier to the product.

Moving Projection Mapping Experiment

Tried manually moving the pico projector while mapping to give more immersive effect. This would be great for large spaces where you want to achieve the brightest and sharpest image without having to use multiple projectors. It’s also conceptually interesting to translate the movement into both digital and physical layers, instead of merely projecting the digital moving image.

Doherty Threshold Response Time

I was watching Season 1 Episode 4 of Halt and Catch Fire and this came up. Here's a short clip I recorded.

On a related note, here’s a research done by Microsoft on touch latency. This takes me back to the days of Windows Tablet PC when manufacturers were competing to see who has the lowest latency in digitizer input.
