Looking forward: Revant plans move into Central Eastside Industrial District

There’s definitely a feeling of a momentum shifting in the community, lately. For a time, Portland’s startup activity wasn’t in Portland, at all. It was in the suburbs. Where communities like Beaverton and Hillsboro provided space for would be juggernauts. At the turn of the century, that momentum shifted to Portland proper and—more notably—the Pearl District. Now, there’s a new center of gravity emerging around the startup community: the Central Eastside.

Well, well, well… Uncorked partners with adidas to rethink wellness tracking

There was a time when you couldn’t swing a wearable without someone releasing a new fitness tracking app. But, regardless of how many iterations of the concept were released, they all seemed to do basically the same thing: count steps. And maybe count calories. So when Portland’s Uncorked Studios started approaching a new solution with adidas, they cut to the core of the issue.

Remembering Nike Chalkbot: Five years ago, a project for Tour de France had a lasting impact on the Portland startup scene

We still talk about Chalkbot a lot. Sort of in a “remember when” kind of way. Not about the technology. Or how hard the project was. Or the incredibly inane logistics. We talk more about its legacy. About the people. And about those it continues to affect and inspire, even today. Read More

RDTN.org moves from plotting data to plotting to build devices to measure radiation levels in real time

RDTN.org is taking the next logical step. Well the next logical two steps, actually. First, they’re going to track down existing radiation monitoring devices to ship to Japan. Second, they’re intent on manufacturing a network of devices that monitor radiation levels so that no one has to encounter this sort of shortage, again.

Remember RDTN.org? The site that Uncorked Studios built in 72-hours to help the people of Japan plot and track radiation levels from the earthquake crippled nuclear reactors?

Well, RDTN.org has the plotting of existing data dialed in. But gathering accurate and timely data to be plotted has been less than an easy task. Seems most of us don’t just have Geiger counters sitting around. In fact, there aren’t many sitting around period. They’re hard to come by. Read More
