Winter OR is next week, which means it is time for a party. Join us next Thursday evening at Swarm HQ for some free beer, good music, and a good time partying and networking with a bunch of good looking people. Spread the word!
Attention everybody- Swarm is moving this weekend. We've outgrown our office on Pierpont, and so we're moving to a larger space. Honestly, though, we're just trying to get closer to Brudge's for their delicious waffles. Starting Monday 9.29.2014 we'll be working in our new space, so come visit us. Our new address is: Swarm 378w 300s #8 SLC, Ut 84101
http://vimeo.com/50620445 Head over to indiegogo to check out our latest crowdfunded project- the ELEV8TE and DV8 series of audio hats.
Swarm has partnered with John Minihan to launch Reson8te, a high tech apparel company focused on bringing fashion, design, and technology together to enhance your life. Today we're launching our ELEV8TE and DV8 series of audio hats- hats that replace your headphones.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to listen to music while you’re running, skateboarding, golfing, walking the dog… and still be able to hear everything that’s going on around you? Well, now you can with our ELEV8TE and DV8 Series headwear – Hats and visors with a sound system! They have low profile, high quality speakers hidden in the brim, which are virtually undetectable and are driven by an external high powered mini-AMP.
The ELEV8TE and DV8 Series offer clear immersive music WITHOUT covering your ears. Headphones and earbuds block out your surrounding making it almost impossible to hear the environment around you. That’s why we created the ELEV8TE Series (running hats and running visors) and the DV8 Series (flex fit hat and trucker hat) which have speakers in the brim, allowing your ears to be unobstructed.
Support us by going to indiegogo to pre-order, or help us spread the word by sharing our project with everybody you know.

As many of you know, we're running a Kickstarter campain to help launch our Nectar and Elixir- bicycle seat clamps with a built in bottle opener. As part of this, we've done some serious research into the health consequences of combining the two glorious past-times, biking and drinking beer.
Our empirical testing results have all pointed to the fact that drinking beer after a good ride is very important, nigh imperative. After performing some scientific research (googling), we have found solid evidence to back up our tests.
Speaking to the British newspaper, The Telegraph, Professor Manuel Garzon, who led the study, said, "the bubbles in beer can help quench thirst and the carbohydrates in the beverage can help make up for burned calories."
Also from the same article, "Juan Antonio Corbalan, a cardiologist who has worked with Real Madrid football players and Spain's national basketball team, told The Telegraph he has long recommended beer to professional sportsmen after exhausting activities, as the drink is optimal for rehydrating the body."
As you can see, all evidence points to yes. Really, we have an obligation to give our body exactly what it wants after exercise- beer.

Attention friends of Swarm- today we have some more blog love to share. Make sure you head over to Pedallas, Stranger than Fiction, and Bicycle Design and check out their awesome content! Also, remember to head over to Kickstarter to pledge for your very own Nectar or Elixir today!
That is all. Thank you.
Thanks everybody for continuing to spread the word about our Nectar and Elixir project on Kickstarter! We'd like to give a special thanks to Fixed Gear Newcastle, and Fuccit for blogging about Nectar and Elixir. There is even a mention buried in Cycleicious. Keep spreading the word! The world needs bottle opening seat clamps!
Just saw an awesome post by Josh Mings over on SolidSmack talking up the Nectar and Elixir. Thanks for an amazing post! We love you too! He even went deeper and did a little interview with me, asking about the process and the story behind Nectar and Elixir. It is a riveting read, and I highly recommend you check it out!
