September 24, 2009 - Albuquerque NM - Stone Design aka Big Stone Phone in partnership with Souljerky today released a new mobile iPhone toy, Intentionizer, that reveals a daily 'tuning' of our mental and emotional outlook on a particular situation. Intentionizer adds a meditative gloss and contemplation to the day's events.
"We've made a mobile, networked oracle that's equal parts Madlibs(tm), fortune cookie, I Ching, and the Magic 8 Ball(tm), all rolled into a chance meeting with the masters of Surrealism at a yoga class."
Our app encourages users to open up to the subtle world. "Big messages can come wrapped inside tiny, magical apps," says developer Spiros Antonopoulos. "It's up to YOU to listen, and allow yourself to transform."
Each message is a set of four harmonic words packed inside an easy-to-remember, Scrabble(tm) worthy acronym. This anagram not only helps us remember the words in our mind's eye, it adds an overtone to the entire experience.
Warning: Using Intentionizer may improve your vocabulary. We, like William F. Buckley, have been "accused of an inordinate reliance on unusual words." Isn't Fortune always catty like that?
Every Intentionizer word is a carefully selected, digestible nugget from the ever-expanding verbal mind. Each word, when properly used, ignites balance and radiates luminosity. When chewed upon slowly and proerly digested, each word just might penetrate consciousness itself and help to shape how this life unfolds, for all of us.
Feature Highlights include:
* Shake to focus
* Deep research into word definitions
* Saves history of your intentions
* Comment on your intention
* Tweet your intention
"The Intentionizer is an oracular system for inspiring ourselves in a fast-shuffle remix world. It may be the first delusion-killer app." - Erik Davis, author "Techgnosis, The Visionary State"
"Let us not mince words: the marvelous is always beautiful, anything marvelous is beautiful, in fact only the marvelous is beautiful." - The Surrealist Manifesto
