This Belt Can Charge Your Phone


Nifty, a technology start-up based in the United Kingdom, is teaming up with clothing designers Casely-Hayford to craft a fashionable belt that will double as a mobile charger. 
The XOO Belt is made with full-grain Italian leather and will come in multiple styles. Nifty's crowdfunding project on Indiegogo has reached nearly 80 percent of its $39,096 funding goal.
"It looks, feels and weighs about the same as a really nice belt … but comes with a mighty 2,100 milliampere-hours of hidden charge and can charge pretty much any device," the creators said. Each buckle contains two charging points. 
The creators are a father and son who have designed clothes worn by well-known figures, including actor Robert Downey Jr. and R&B singer Drake, according to their Indiegogo profile.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
