E308 – Aubrey Anderson: Runcible



Today a remote conversation with Aubrey Anderson, the designer/developer ofRuncible, the circular “anti-smartphone.”  What do you do when you’re tired of seeing people stare down blankly at a rectangle?  Reinvent the darned thing.  Runcible is a legacy electronic, designed to last and constructed of quality & socially responsible materials, and it’s specially calibrated to enahnce your interactions with the world around you, not distract you from it.  And you can carry it on a stylish chain!  Visit the IndieGoGo page for more info, or the theMonohm site.

Also: Aaron is pretty sure he’s not concussed (at least that’s what he’s saying).
