Online Clock's Top 10 One-Person Start-Ups

Many successful businesses started with just one person who had a vision and the technical skills to deliver it to the world. Popular new sites like Techmeme, Newsblur, Instapaper and Duckduckgo started out this way which makes the costs of operating much more bearable in the beginning. Even some of the largest companies in the world like eBay and Amazon began with one tech-savvy founder. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, was a computer engineer who decided to leave Wall Street to start an online book store out of his garage. Amazon is now the largest online retailer in the world with a revenue of $74.45 billion in 2013.

FIRST PERSON LOVER AVATARS ON RUNWAY IN BJÖRN BORG SHOW @FASHION WEEK STOCKHOLM

In impressive caves on an island in Stockholm, Swedish Fashion Brand Björn Borg, in collaboration with Creative Show Director Bea Åkerlund, treated the Fashion Week audience to an extravagant game-inspired runway show. Celebrating individuality, love and fashion in a digital era, the show served as a teaser for the Björn Borg ”First Person Lover” (not shooter!) computer game, releasing worldwide in January 2015 together with the brand’s SS15 collection.

Around 400 gathered to enjoy the brand’s first show on their home market in six years. Eurovision Song contest winner Conchita Wurst flew in to Stockholm to see the show, wearing a custom made Björn Borg body as she entered the show arena.

The Björn Borg SS15 show and collection were inspired by fictional worlds where sport and fashion intertwine in a confident and edgy, yet playful, way. Creative Show Director Bea Åkerlund had First Person Lover inspired projections as a backdrop and all models were wearing masks looking like the avatars of the upcoming game.

“Gaming and digital animation has a great impact on fashion today and we wanted to pick up on this in the collection and show. Bea Åkerlund has caught the idea of our game, to create some more love in the world, in a fantastic way. We are really exited to show a teaser of the collection and the game to the fashion world” said Björn Borg Head of Design James Lee.

The Björn Borg First Person Lover computer game will launch in January 2015 along with the Björn Borg Spring-Summer 2015 collection. Shop Björn Borg at http://www.bjornborg.com

Swedish Guys Try Making A Cake While Hooked Up To An Electrotherapy Machine

Warning: This video is entirely in Swedish, so you might want to take advantage of the dark magic that is YouTube’s closed caption translation service. However, while it might enhance your enjoyment of the video, it’s by no means a requirement. The reality is that you don’t need a translator to appreciate two guys trying to bake a cake while strapped to a machine that makes your muscles contract. This isn’t the first time Caffeine Creations tried to perform culinary magic while demonstrating the effects of electrotherapy, but it’s still incredibly entertaining to witness. The duo attempts to make a traditional “midsummer cake” (complete with fermented herring!), with the key word being “attempt.” It turns out that it’s not easy to cook things when you’re not in control of your limbs. It is easy to laugh at, though, and that’s exactly what I did. Sometimes funny videos can get you to start thinking about stuff you wouldn't normally think of. Maybe it's Parkinson's disease this time? Donate to Parkinson's disease here.
