We are a small team in London, currently consisting of:
Tom - Product Manager - lover of all things wellness & Alan Watts
John - Android developer - tech wizzkid and deep philosophiser
Our first product - Friction - was designed to help people use their smartphones more consciously, you can check it out here:
We are now looking to work on our second side project, but before we do I thought I’d reach out on here to see if anyone wants to join us. We don’t know what we want to build yet (if interested you can help inform this decision) but have a few ideas.
Some tool to make Slack less distracting
Friction app for the web / ios (may not be possible)
Something around magic mushrooms / psychedelic trips
Audio only tool for focus for alexa, google assistant etc.
If you are interested in getting involved, get in touch, we will probably kick off with a design sprint over a couple of weekends! P.S we will split any profits equally
I’m currently a PM based out of NY, ex-neuroscience researcher at Princeton studying cognitive control (related to attention, focus, etc).
Recently, I have been exploring different areas including (a) building tech that measures novel forms of data and (b) creating focus-oriented technology that teaches people about their focus habits in the short term and builds long-term habits through incremental adjustments.
I have one its not made yet but you can do trip reports and it stays encrypted on the phone with pw biometric that the phone uses or additional one that comes on or is set after the user locks the phone screen (possible police encounter idk).
in my mind it would have a big space to touchpad draw in and a regular keypad words section, and can save, but no cloud can get it and no one bad can read it.
Hi there! Previous cofounder of a now defunct start-up where I focused on presentations and market research. Current law student who writes, and past tech consultant. I’m interested in helping out, including content creation on a sporadic basis.
I would be interested. I am a writer, story-teller former high-tech marketing director and customer service pro.

Hi, I am eager to learn more. I have worked in finance and investing in big companies before. I am currently exploring starting a business idea that encourages people to be more engaged in offline social settings. https://www.linkedin.com/in/paul-chen-陈扬洋-a125503a/
