City Sized “Bored Game"
City Under Karl is a collection of stories that center around the ridiculousness of living in modern day San Francisco.
Recorded using a special 3D, Binaural microphone, listeners are able to not only hear each story, but to be fully immersed in our character’s world, using nothing more than a simple pair of headphones.
City Under Karl was a collaborative project with comedian Brandon Garner and was released in 2016.
This is the world’s dumbest app…that actually works.
Orginally developed for music festivals, LookFor uses a simple blinking color to direct friends to your location. All you have to do is choose a color and hold the blinking screen above your head to be found. Simply tell your freinds, “LookFor Blue”…or whatever color you’re waving, to be found.
LookFor was our first mobile app, that made it’s debut on the iTunes top 10 navigation apps in 2015.

What is 3D Sound?
RokBlok is the world’s smallest, wireless record player, that puts a new spin on vinyl…litterally.
RokBlok plays records, by gently riding on top of them. Music can be played from it’s built-in, internal speaker or can be sent wirelessly to any Bluetooth speaker or headphones.
RokBlok was our first hardware venture, that was brought to life on Kickstarter in late 2016 and was recently featured on ABC’s Shark Tank.
Believe it or not, each episode of One City Uner Karl is inpired by actual events. If you have an interesting story that you’d like to see turned into an episode, we’d love to hear it! We’ll even give you a shout out on the show if we choose your story.
Pink Donut began as a simple notebook that a guy named Logan filled with hundreds of ideas.
Each idea was stranger than the last and usually began after uttering the words “Wouldn’t it be cool if…”.
Determined to turn each idea into a reality, a company based simply on having ideas was born into something we call an “Idea Company”.
Our sole purpose is to create for the sake of creating and to share our creations with others. To give even the most random of ideas a life outside of a notebook…because, I mean, why not?
We turn ideas into things that we believe will make people smile, or at the very least say “WTF”. Our goal is to build ideas that are as awesome as they are random. Unrestricted by even our own level of profession or experience.
Our ideas have no set genre, industry or medium.
Sometimes we sell our ideas. Sometimes we come up with ideas for others. Sometimes we let others build our ideas.
Frankly, our mission is simple: To turn ideas into reality. No matter how strange. No matter how dumb. No matter how colorful
One City Under Karl is the first podcast series recorded entirely in Binaural Audio (3D audio).
3D audio is used in this series to bring you right there with our characters, in their (sometimes awkward) situations.
In a nutshell, Binaural recording is a technique that mimics human hearing and records sound in 360˚. This happens by using a special stereo microphone that captures sound in the same way that you hear sound…using a pair of ears.
Yes. You read that correctly. Ears.
In other words, wherever this microphone records (You know, the one with ears), you will be able to hear sounds all around you, using nothing more than your favorite headphones.
