Magnetic Notes

It’s amazing to watch the evolution of the simple things around us. Who could have thought that our beloved sticky notes still had potential for innovation?

Several years ago we could only imagine them as colourful pieces of paper. Now we have sticky notes online, in the cloud, playing an integral role in virtual remote collaboration. And the magic doesn’t stop here!

While RealtimeBoard team made it possible to turn spreadsheets to stickers in seconds, guys at Tesla Amazing started making Magnetic Notes from statically charged polypropylene film, which makes them stick to almost any surface, including wood, plastic, glass, paper, metal, bricks, cork board, leather, and fabric.

Remote Collaboration: How RealtimeBoard Helped Wayward Ventures Keep Up the Progress and Stay On Track In 2015

added by .

It’s always exciting to watch projects in early stages of development. The teams are optimistic, creative and full of energy. They love what they do. And we are equally excited to have them onboard, uniting teams across the globe and helping them overcome the difficulties of team engagement and remote collaboration. This is precisely one of the key reasons why we started building RealtimeBoard 4 years ago.

Wayward Ventures

Wayward Ventures is one of these young exciting projects — it’s an open world online co-operative sailing game. Currently being built in Unreal 4, they are still in early development. The team currently consists of 5 people, responsible for 3D, 2D art, programming, design, game development and promotion.

All of the team members are volunteers, so contributions vary widely from week to week. However, they do make sure to discuss the project together every week.
