"I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person who gets random friend requests on Facebook.
In fact I know I’m not.
But I doubt anyone ever expected to get a friend request from their unborn child. Which exactly how Olla Condoms chose to promote their product. Pretty clever huh?
In essence they take your name and create a new profile using your name but with “Jr.” added to it. You then receive a friend request from your “Jnr.” Once your curiosity is aroused (and I’m sure it would be) if you click through to the profile page you’ll see an Olla Condoms ad. 
Like I said pretty clever huh? I suspect this sort of thing may be outside the rules of Facebook. In fact it’s probably been banned already. But I’ve gotta admit I like this idea. A lot!”

"E-bike sales are increasing every year: they bridge the gap between bicycles and motorcycles as personal urban transport. Most e-bikes lack a design sensibility or structural integrity, but Grace e-bikes look set to change that."

ColorWare - Color Customization for Gadgets

"ColorWare Inc., established in 2000, is an industry leader in altering the color of existing products. ColorWare began with the concept of transforming the ubiquitous beige computer into a custom-colored work of art. The idea began with an attempt to color a late-model cell phone in 1999. After a year of testing and experimenting, the ColorWare high-gloss, scratch-resistant polymer-based coating was perfected. ColorWare’s initial offerings included 22 standard colors available on two mp3 players, three gaming consoles, and four computers, and many new products as well as additional colors have been added in recent years."

"Featured as number 108 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing privately held companies in the fall of 2007, ColorWare continues to grow at an impressive rate each year by focusing on popular electronics and offering more options on those products. As evidenced by ColorWare’s appearance in magazines such as In Style, Vogue, and Entertainment weekly, a ColorWare product is also a statement in fashion and individuality, and as such fills a high-demand niche market."

"Our focus is to continue to create and transform our products beyond what the original manufacturers intended. Thank you for visiting our website. We hope to supply you with some truly unique products."
