The Grid is a platform that uses artificial & not human intelligence to design Websites

Imagine if your Website never required a designer or even yourself, for that matter? We are not talking of template-based Site design platforms. What we are talking of is a Website design platform without any human contact at all. That’s right. This startup uses artificial intelligence (AI) to create Websites. Just post your Content & sit back as your Site is designed & hosted in the Cloud.

Called The Grid, when you post to your Site using this platform, its engine measures & analyses your Content & crafts a Site “driven by human-centered values, constraints & direction.” As the developers of The Grid have said: Think of it as your own personal AI designer.

The engine auto-designs your Site, publishes it, & stores it on repository Web-hosting service, Github. Your source Content will live in a Github repository that you can access & download anytime. All Sites hosted on The Grid will be available on the Web with native Android & iOS support. Such Sites will not only be responsively designed based on device, but responsively designed based on your Content you upload.

For those who already have running Websites, The Grid team will provide tools so that you can migrate your existing Site. In addition, 3rd parties can use the APIs to build tools that can add additional functionality for migrating Content.

The Grid harnesses the power of AI to take everything you throw at it – videos, images, text, urls & more – & automatically shape them into a custom Website unique to you. As your needs grow, it evolves with you, effortlessly adapting to your needs. Want to add e-commerce? Social feeds? A different layout? The Grid just takes care of it.

The Grid has been founded by Dan Tocchini, who is also the CEO. Dan is the creator of GSS (Grid Style Sheets) & partner of D4 Interactive Agency. The other founders are Brian Axe, also the Chairman, who is also the creators of Google AdSense, & Daniel Tocchini, who is VP, Biz Development. Daniel has worked with Fortune 500 companies including Disney, Microsoft & ESPN.

The Grid plans to offer the service for US $25 per month for a regular subscription. But for early starters, there’s a discounted rate of US $8 per month available for now. Such “Founding Members”, who lock-in subscriptions during the pre-order period will receive ‘Founding Member’ features & may participate in pre-order referrals rewards.
The features include:

  • 1 year pre-paid subscription
  • Subscription begins v1 release, late Spring 2015
  • Life-time subscription rate of $8/month
  • 7 Sites, custom domains OK
  • Pretty much unlimited contributors, storage & bandwidth
  • Commerce engine, due late 2015
  • Grid NFC Token (limited gold edition)

Those who join up need not worry about hosting. All Grid sites include fully-managed, high performance Cloud hosting.

Ibudy :Too young for a smartphone, ready for Ibudy

This press release has been published as it is without any editing. This Website has not verified claims, if any, made it in.

Geneva, November 27, 2014, PR Newswire: Ibudy is the first device that connects parents and children as easily as a smartphone but without the disadvantages. The reason a parent will not give a phone to his child is exactly why he will  prefer an Ibudy.


The Ibudy app allows parents to:

– Follow the child’s activity (his location, route, etc.)
– Find the child in places it’s usually difficult to locate someone (beaches, parking lots, etc.) thanks to the smart compass
– Send messages (texts or emoticons)
– Be advised if the child approaches or leaves a trusted area (school, home, etc.)
– Be notified if the child needs help

With Ibudy the child can:

– Customize his Ibudy with a choice of fun characters and colors to make him unique
– Be more independent
– Become responsible: like with a Tamagotchi, the child will have to make his Ibudy evolve by doing as many things as possible every day
– Receive messages from family members and create a direct contact if necessary, even remotely
– Feel safe. In the event the child gets lost he can alert his family members. The child also has his emergency identity card on his Ibudy (name, age, blood type and emergency numbers)

Conveniently, Ibudy has thought of everything:

– No subscription, no commitment: Parents can choose between a subscription or a prepaid card with the operator of their choice
– Economical: Ibudy uses only low frequencies (EDGE / 2G)
– Durable: Waterproof and shock resistant
– Ergonomic: Adapted to children’s morphology
– Practical: The App allows you to enter more than one administrator and manage multiple children

About Ibudy

Ibudy was designed by two Swiss entrepreneurs, Raphael & Denis Hayoun.

Ibudy is currently crowdfunding a campaign on the Indiegogo platform until December 25th at the unit price of $129 for the first 100 contributors.
