Our Active projects...

KIZINA

KIZINA (framework)

Music has been there since forever, and music albums have existed longer than us, but this, KIZINA, is the World's first album technology of its kind ever! We have attempted to build a framework upon which music publishers can create self-executing music albums - no external software required, no players, nothing but the album app! It can bundle audio, video, lyrics, bio, art gallery, chat, games, etc. All in an effort to give the fans a richer experience while enjoying your album. Our friend, Nemesis Fixx, is the first to use this technology for his debut Hip Hop album

This project is a JQuery plugin that makes it dead simple for anyone to include a user-controlled Explorative Data Analysis panel in their web pages and web-apps. It can render analytics for compatible data from HTML tables, Javascript collections or from APIs. More power to businesses to leverage data insights.

Docs Hack

XMark

XMark IT! (service,app)

What's really the purpose of your current business card? The XMark, instead, allows you to save all the info you currently possess on a business card (with just a fraction of the space moreover), and additionally, you can put your entire chain of services, your photo, YouTube, FB, Twitter, interactive website, a poem, etc into a single XMark - which can all reside in a single QRCODE, that you can print to an even smaller card (or not even have to print at all). With XMark, using paper is just a choice, but you can have all the benefits of a biz card, without any card! Just scan-to: share, call, sms, email, or view any person, any business, anything! No more boring cards consuming space and adding weight!

XMark.IT! Hack

TrolMote

TrolMote (utility)

Not just an experiment anymore. TrolMote is a Universal Remote Control that allows one to define custom, arbitrary controls for remotely controlling just about anything that can be controlled via a URI. You could trigger a nuclear bomb with this thingie! Haha, not kidding!

Actually, we use it to manage many of our remote resources, hustle-free and securely.

Hack

Page Matrix

Page Matrix (utility)

A tool for allowing you to explore more of the web in an efficient (and simple) way

Global Clipboard (utility)

Copy-Paste rules the World!
So the nerds need only 1 Clipboard to rule them all

With this one piece of software installed, you get the ability to copy something on one device and then be able to immediately paste it on another device! With powerful GPG encryption in-built, to ensure this is being done securely

Request Hack

Ghost Message

Ghost Messages (utility)

Ghost is yet another one of our experimental technologies exploring the use of occult cryptography for mostly esoteric purposes and fun. This one uses a form of encryption known as steganography. The messages can be hidden in plain-sight, and the encrpyted content doesn't have to suggest that it is so - a very potent means of employing cryptography in interesting ways. Ok, now go read that lol posting one more time - there might be something hidden underneath...

Invisible SMS? Hack

CBD

CBD (service)

The very ancient, yet still present, science or art of divination, also considered to be one of the earliest means by which mankind was able to consciously tap into and read the contents of his unconscious (not necessarily internal contents), also has a tradition of those who truly read between the lines. Bibliomancy, is here revolutonalized, for modern explorers, who still understand the value of books - any written material that is. To the technical, this tries to use true chaos - the atmosphere (aka. Random.org)

Read Divinity Hack

SCRY

SCRY (service)

Yet another mind technology, and still, a subconscious-mind interface. This one is a rendition of the fascinating divination art, this time, aimed at the more visual diviners. The innovation is mostly in the medium - you might see it.

See Clearly Hack

Drop-A-Spell

Drop-A-Spell (utility)

This is an experiment in letting you modify content on any website using special voice commands called spells! Sounds fun? Get your Chrome browser and mic ready...

INSTALL! Hack

TrolMote

Crypto (utility)

Crypto is less about typical cryptography as known to the majority of people, and more about the relatively ancient art of encoding messages in occult ciphers. The applications of this kind of technnology beyond mere fascniation might elude those with not interest in the esoteric - for those who don't know the use of ciphers, consider hacking for the fun of it. Otherwise, it's dead serious.

Get Occult! Hack

DEVRUPTION! (service)
