  1. Mega-VC Peter Thiel's eponymous, anti-college "fellowship" is part of his techno-libertarian fantasy: in the future, no one will need to attend bloated institutions like college. You'll just start a business instead—how about trading an education for topical energy spray? https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=sOxAK5USB6w Ben Yu is taking time off from Harvard to pursue "Sprayable Energy," which is exactly what it sounds like: caffeine you spray on your neck like cologne and absorb through your flesh. It's basic premise is that drinking caffeine—in a capsule, coffee, or whatever—is too much. Better to cut out the step of ingestion and just absorb chemicals directly into your bloodstream. Yu and his partner are looking to raise $15,000 on Indiegogo—meanwhile, we must notes that: Not that everyone leaves Harvard necessarily goes on to do something worthwhile, but trading time toward a degree for time fundraising for caffeine spray doesn't either.
  2. In the city, getting somewhere is only half the battle — and sometimes much less than that. Finding a parking spot can be an even bigger time-waster. Not any more, if Israel-based Anagog has its way. Via multiple apps and a service for developers to integrate into their own apps, Anagog has built a real-time service that knows when people are vacating parking spots, and where you should go to get them. The company calls it “the first living parking map of an urban center,” and says that its data has just been built into the Easypark app. “We all saw what crowdsourcing did for traffic and navigation, and we are excited to see this concept brought to the world of parking,” says Ofer Tziperman, CEO of Parx, which makes EasyPark. Clearly, he’s referencing another Israeli startup, Waze, which was recently bought by Google for about $1.3 billion. And, of course, the two would be perfect companions: Waze to help you find your destination, Anagog to get you parked once you get there. Anagog has a variety of apps such as FindMyCar, 2Park, OTO, StopPark, and ParkDroid, which help people find their car again after parking. Clearly, data accumulated by those types of apps feeds into the open parking spot database, as does data from EasyPark and other partners. Altogether, Anagog says it has about 500,000 users, which enables it to do this: Israel, of course, is one story. The company has about 100,000 users there, in a country of about eight million people. Getting good enough data for San Francisco, New York, London, or other global cities is an entirely other matter, with 400,000 Anagog users spread over the rest of the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=UuPKLQibUTo Still, partnership like that with EasyPark will help — Parx currently works in 130 cities. But more partners will be needed. says Yaron Aizenbud, Co- CEO of Anagog. Anagog is currently raising a funding round.
