(Via Uncrate). A new Kickstarter project by New York-based design firm Breakfast cooks up a combination of Instagram, Polaroid, and photo booths. Sharing memories with family and friends is easier than ever nowadays, with photo-sharing apps such as Instagram. Still, I love Polaroid cameras and photo booths, as they give me an instant keepsake that I can use to decorate my fridge, cube, or home, and remind me of good times. So wouldn't it be grand if there were a way to bring that functionality to Instagram?.
Adam Sedo, the press chief at Fira Barcelona, the city's exhibition venue that houses Mobile World Congress, attributes the city's win to its experience with hosting large events, a commitment to chicago skyline at night iphone case driving investment in Catalonia, and a desire for Barcelona to be the center of all things mobile, "This is part of an effort to attract people to all of the Barcelona area," he told CNET, "We want to be a living city lab for testing mobile technologies and how they shape our lives."To get there, the GSMA, a global industry association that organizes the event, also designated Barcelona as the first Mobile World Capital, Though that sounds like something born out of a marketing focus group (which it probably was), Sedo says that it means that Barcelona's plans go far beyond the four days when the largest wireless trade show comes to town..
Not surprisingly, attracting business to the area (the "Mobile World Hub") will be a prime effort, but at the public level, the city will open a year-round venue to showcase wireless technologies. Located in Barcelona's center on Placa de Catalunya, the Mobile World Centre will be something of a museum of mobile for tourists and residents. Each summer, the city also will host the Mobile World Festival, a weeklong series of sports, entertainment, and cultural events that highlight mobile technologies while reflecting Barcelona's strong regional identity. Specific events will include Formula 1 racing, the Sitges Film Festival, FC Barcelona football club matches, and art exhibitions at the Picasso and Joan Miro museums.
Come each February, however, Mobile World Congress and the international spotlight it brings chicago skyline at night iphone case will be the focus, And starting next year, the show will move to a new venue, the Fira Gran Via , Finished last September, the new complex has 240,000 square meters of exhibition space across eight buildings, That's more than three times the available space at the show's previous venue, the Fira Montjuic, Designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito, the new buildings make bold and modern statements while lacking the historic charm and hillside terraces of the original location, Still, Sedo says that the twin towers in the new complex are Ito's interpretation of the Venetian Towers that stand at the entrance to Fira Montjuic..
Similarly, though the Fira Gran Via's location outside the city center may appear to be less inconvenient, Sedo says it will be easily accessible via Barcelona's commuter train network or a 10-minute drive from Placa d'Espanya and the Montjuic complex. What's more, it will best the other location by offering a direct connection to the airport. Of course, we'll have to wait until next year to see just how these promises hold up. The 2013 Mobile World Congress will take place February 25 through 28, and CNET will be there to bring you the story.
