IDU Storefront

Post by Libertas Omnium Maximus » Thu Aug 08, 2019 6:36 am

The IDU Storefront

I imagine in the cannon of many users, real world products do not exist or are not used in their nation. It would also make sense that nations would produce their own products. Name one RL nation that doesn’t have at least one product to its name? All this gave me the idea to open a regional storefront.

The regional storefront is a place to show of your nation’s products so that they may be used/referenced/etc in RPs. This can be cars, phones, guns, watches, anything really.

If you have a product of your nation that you want to show the world, tell the IDU about it in a post on this thread.

It is my hope that this storefront will help users in world building(company building really) and putting product ideas on paper. It can also just be a new place to advertise your latest phone. The world is your Oyster.

Nova XIX

Manufactured by Andromeda Tech Inc.
Released December, 2018
Type Smartphone

Perhaps the most prolific smartphone in LOM, The Nova XIX (having a slim varient and a wide varient, along with the standard) is force to be reckoned with. It comes standard with a camera that can shoot 4K and 64 GB of storage. This installment of the long running “Nova” smartphone series is slightly smaller than its predecessor at 5.6 inches in height by 2.7 inches in width (the wide version, which has a larger screen as well, is 2.9 inches wide). The phone also has a screen that takes up the entirety of its face, unlike its predecessors. A standard XIX costs $799.

Gardavasque's technology economy has been booming for decades. Centered in the so-called "Silicon Forest," a suburban area south of the city of Eternity and northwest of the city of Innovation, the area is global leader for companies producing software products, social media services, venture capital, research, and scientific advancement. Nearby Leland University and Gardavasque Institute of Technology are major hubs for science and engineering and have fostered a climate where competitive good-paying jobs requiring a skilled, highly-educated workforce are ubiquitous. Some of the world's largest Internet and Social Media companies are headquartered here, including Pear, Inc., WhoTube, Twitcher, Gazillion, and MyFace.

I thought I'd share this print ad from Tequila Airlines in-flight magazine that basically captures a sense of what seems to be really popular in Tequilan culture lately. Nuub is a wildly popular vape product line that seems to be ubiquitous at high schools, on busses, and shopping malls across the Island. The creative team who created this ad appear to be deliberately cultivating a brand that is creative and playful with maybe just a hint of danger. Nuub has these cheap e-liquid cartridges that are constantly coming out with new flavors, really tapping into the fear of missing out (FOMO) brand strategy. The brand itself is a play on words: "Nuub" could mean "nube" which is cloud in Spanish or it could be short for "newbie." It's high-tech, youth-oriented, capitalist, and maybe just a wee bit too hedonistic for some. Note the teeny tiny mandatory government warning at the bottom; clearly the National Health Service doesn't wield a great deal of power in regulating this potentially hazardous product.
