Emojli is a Social Network That Only Uses Emoji

Emojli

What’s the world coming to? Or rather, what’s the online world coming to? Facebook is still in the lead when it comes to social networks, but that’s not stopping new ones like Emojli from cropping up. The name gives a lot away as to how the network will be operating. If you guessed emojis, then you’re spot on, because emojis are the center of the social network. In fact, it’s what Emojli is all about, because it’s apparently an “emoji-only” network.

That should be self-explanatory. All status updates will be comprised of emoji and that’s what its creators are counting on to bolster their claims of zero spam because, well, how else can you spam people using emojis only? (Notably, there’s an emoji for poop so, you know, there’s that.)

PareUp Pairs Restaurants With Customers Who Want to Buy Leftovers

PareUp1

On one hand, we’ve got people going to sleep on empty stomachs. On the other, we’ve got restaurants throwing away leftovers (AKA perfectly good food) every day when it’s time to close up. It’s unfortunate, but that’s just how things work–or is it? Aiming to change this, even on a small scale, are the folks behind PareUp.

It’s an upcoming app that will let diners “pair up” with participating retailers and restaurants that will be selling their leftovers at discounted prices.

Songtapper: Find the Name of That Song By Tapping

Songtapper

 

So you just heard the most awesome song, but weren’t able to fire up SoundHound in time to capture enough snippets of it to search for its title. You could always look up the lyrics, but Google won’t be able to help you out if you can’t remember enough relevant lines.

Your last hope–and best bet, at this point–is SongTapper. It’s basically a search engine that searches for songs based on its beats. If you can hum along to the tune or remember the intro or sound of its chorus, then you can just tap out the rhythm by tapping on your space bar and SongTapper will do the rest for you.

It’s not the most accurate thing in the world, but the results might just amaze you. Check it out HERE.

Eterni.me Lets Users ‘Chat’ From the Dead, Creep People Out

Eterni.me

 

Eterni.me is one of those services that attempt to defy death in some way by allowing people to maintain an online presence, even when they’ve already passed on. It’s a start-up that came to be thanks to MIT’s Entrepreneurship Development Program, and its creators claim that it’s a piece of technology that can digitally reconstruct your personality after your death, so you can live on and still interact with friends and family online.

The Eterni.me website explains: “Eterni.me collects almost everything that you create during your lifetime, and processes this huge amount of information using complex Artificial Intelligence algorithms. Then it generates a virtual YOU, an avatar that emulates your personality and can interact with, and offer information and advice to, your family and friends after you pass away. It’s like a Skype chat from the past.”

It’s an interesting concept, but to be honest, it’s also extremely creepy. What do you think?

It promises to hook people up with a mate who want love but can’t commit as much time to a relationship because of busy careers or whatever other reason. A meaningful romance without everyday commitment? You might just find that right here…or not.

Either way, if you want to give it a try, head on over to Part Time Love to check it out.

‘Wingman’ App Hooks You Up with Other Singles On Your Flight

Wingman App How do you spend your time in a plane? I usually read or sleep or talk with whoever I’m traveling with, but if you’re the type who wants to meet new people and eventually ask them out by the time you land, then you might find the Wingman app useful. Currently in development, the app was thought up by Buzzfeed copywriter Gabe Whaley.

He explains: “I’m pretty sure that at some point, anyone who’s flown has had a thought, like, ‘I wonder what it would be like to talk to that person. Too bad it’s never going to happen, because the seating arrangement didn’t provide for that.’” Presumably this app will be able to help you out by introducing you somehow to that person. No specifics have been revealed yet aside from its premise, but Wingman definitely sounds interesting.

If you’re down to fly, reserve a seat by signing up for their beta launch here.
