Dropbox is a digital product, only existing when we’re online. But we don't have only digital goods that we want to share! The idea: DropboxGo, a social shipping community that brings file sharing to the real world. Every Dropbox user can offer himself as a DropboxGo and carry the package from another dropbox user while traveling. The users pay with the currency of megabytes.

Inpetto is a social management platform for pets. Everyone knows traffic lights and street lamps, with worried "Missing Cat" letters. Or pet owners who want to go on vacation, but can't find a suitable sitter. Woudn`t it be easy if our pets could inform us by themselves about which neighboring animals they like to walk around with? And always be able to see where they are. With a GPS collar and its link to the diverse platform Inpetto this is no longer a wishful thinking.
