REVIEW: the “Unpocket” from @the_affair & @zoltancsaki

I’ve had a chance to spend a couple of weeks with the Unpocket, something I backed on Kickstarter what seems like a million years ago, and I have to say it was worth the wait.

Billed as “Simple privacy management for the under-surveillance society” it may seem a little silly to some. The Unpocket disconnects your device from RFID, GPS, WiFi and Cell. No, I’m not concerned about the NSA or CIA tracking my every move (yes I am), but I am in love with the notion of going radio silent.

I recently got an Apple Watch, and I’ll admit it’s a little rude and distracting to be constantly glancing at my wrist while in a meeting. Now, I place my phone in the Unpocket during a conversation and consciously tune out my alerts. It instantly mutes my watch and leaves me focused on the people I’m with.

Pictured above with an iPhone 6 and a Macbook, it’s the perfect size for most devices, and can double as a passport holder or even a simple wallet. The fact that it’s water resistant also makes it great for travel.

No, I’m not paranoid (yes I am) but the Unpocket is a lovely addition to my computer bag that sends a thoughtful message to the people I WANT to be surveilling me.

I’m really excited to share the announcement that Gran Text Auto is officially out! Created by Kobake, it features the music of my long time best friend and collaborator of 35 years GOLAB.

It’s a brilliant game both in it’s simplicity and execution, and it’s crazy fun to play. Grab it for your iPhone! It’s free!

It’s really, really good. Imagine the content you hope for when you log into your favorite social stream but never get. You should subscribe. Today.

Consider funding this project to help spread You Are Beautiful around the world!

“After an extended residency in Andersonville, we plan to share at least one of these pieces with another community in the city. This is, in fact, one of our highest hopes for this campaign. We don’t want this message to stop in Andersonville. We want to show on the largest scale possible, the crucial role that public art plays in creating vibrant and healthy communities for all. By launching this campaign and successfully funding our efforts, we will be able to provide a road map for other communities to follow.”
