Woman-owned “ThingstoDuo” allows users to search for activities and make decisions with a coin toss.

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (Newswire.com) – Now available on iOS and Android, ThingstoDuo provides users the opportunity to browse for things to do or sort by categories ranging from “Family Fun” to “Night Life” in a simple and streamlined interface. Not only does ThingstoDuo provide users a simplified way of exploring and socializing in their local community, but it also aids in decision making – allowing users to add two or more selections to an animated coin toss that randomly chooses between.

“Top Things to Do” search category in the ThingstoDuo mobile app.

“The idea is to get people to spend more time actually doing things rather than planning them,” said Kilane Garrett, founder of ThingstoDuo. If users find themselves particularly fond of a location they have visited or want to save it for later, they are able to save the location as a “Favorite” under their user profile, which also allows for profile customization with a section for a profile photo and bio.

Businesses have the option of promoting exclusive discounts to users on the app, however, paid promotions are limited “in order to provide businesses with adequate screen time.”

About ThingstoDuo
Founded in September 2022, iOS and Android app ThingstoDuo allows users to search or sort by category, learn about local businesses, receive exclusive discounts, and make decisions with the flip of a coin. ThingstoDuo aims to make sure you spend less time making plans and more time doing them.

Adventure-ready Nissan Ariya unveiled for epic Pole to Pole expedition

Published

on

Husband and wife team take on world-first electric adventure to showcase the capability of EV’s and highlight positive action against the climate crisis

REYKJAVIK, Iceland – Set amongst Arctic-like conditions, the Pole to Pole expedition team and Nissan today unveiled an adventure-ready version of the new Ariya electric SUV, which will undertake a 27,000km trip from the magnetic North Pole to the South Pole.

During this epic adventure aiming to kick off this March, the Ariya will need to cope with breath-taking but extreme terrains and environments, including ice fields, deep snow, steep mountain climbs and inhospitable desert dunes. Arctic Trucks, specialists in polar expedition vehicles, have collaborated with Nissan design and engineering teams to prepare the Ariya for these tough conditions.

Modifications to the car have been intentionally minimal, with no changes to the battery or powertrain, but the most recognisable difference is the adaption of the suspension and addition of 39-inch tyres. When coupled with e-4ORCE, Nissan’s advanced electric all-wheel-control technology, these modifications will enable the expedition car to tackle extreme terrains whilst giving Chris and Julie the necessary comfort and control to reach the South Pole.

Chris Ramsey, Pole to Pole EV Expedition Leader, commented: “One of the things that underpins all the adventures we do is that we take a standard production EV and aim to make minimal changes to clearly demonstrate its real, everyday capabilities, regardless of where you are driving it. Our Nissan Ariya is no different as the vehicle’s drivetrain and battery has remained factory standard, demonstrating just how capable and versatile the production Ariya is. We’ve modified the suspension and widened the wheel arches so we can benefit from the stable platform and support of the 39-inch BF Goodrich tyres. I’m incredibly excited to get behind the wheel of what was already a brilliant vehicle, but now feels equipped to take on the ends of the earth in style!”

As a self-confessed coffee lover, Chris will have access to a specially integrated espresso machine with a good supply of sustainable coffee. Whilst the on-demand caffeine will help him focus on the long and isolated parts of the journey, Chris can also capture the beauty of these spectacular environments using a drone that can launch directly from the utility unit on the roof. One further innovation is the portable, renewable energy unit that will be used to charge the Ariya in the polar regions. The towable prototype includes a packable, lightweight wind turbine and solar panels that will take advantage of high winds and long daylight hours to provide charge for the EV’s battery when Chris and Julie stop to rest.

Julie Ramsey, co-driver on Pole to Pole, commented: “The planning and preparation for Pole to Pole has been such a big part of our lives over the past four years so I am really looking forward to getting the expedition underway in March. We’re going to discover so many interesting initiatives from communities and individuals who are taking positive action against climate change and I’m looking forward to sharing these experiences and stories with everyone. We are doing something that has never been attempted before, a world-first, and ultimately that is what makes it so exciting.”
