Thanks Ryan!! Though I have to admit, I do have every intention of changing the world…one blinking light at a time! Thanks for the love!

For those curious.. LookFor was originally built so my friends could find me at Coachella last year...and we were really surprised it worked. After Coachella, I thought it would be funny to launch a Kickstarter for it and to my surprise, the goal was met in 7 hours. With the money raised in the Kickstarter, I hired a developer from Planet1107 to make iOS and Android versions and threw LookFor on the app as soon as we could…just in time for music festival season! Because Product Hunt was so awesome to put us up today, LookFor will be free all day! I hope you all enjoy my dumb little app as much as I do! Logan

OMG, this is so dumb. Why are people spending time building stupid apps rather than meaningful solutions to big problems. We live in a bubble. ...I'm joking, for those that didn't pickup on the satire (yes, I actually have to call that out). Although "dumb" this could actually be useful at concerts and other crowded places. And to all the dumb app haters, please realize this isn't intended to change the world and I highly doubt @loganknowitall is raising a series A off this product alone. Like music, art, and other forms of creative expression, we should encourage (or at least tolerate) experimentation. If interested, I shared more of my thoughts here. cc @hunterwalk

@loganknowitall @hunterwalk @rrhoover this is so hashtag hashtag stupid that it will probably work. :)

@rrhoover you know it's really useful. I remember back when Nextel flip phones were in and you had the ability to change the covers. I remember I bought a case was clear and the front would light up in blue. Whenever I was meeting my friends and I couldn't find them Id call them and ask them if they could see me since my phone would light up

I had this exact idea for a way to find your Uber driver. It's like ship to ship signal flags. Sell it to Uber.

@arieljalali My first thought, Uber should implement this. I like this dumb app. 👌

@arieljalali Was going to say the same thing. Having an uber pull up in NYC with crap tons of other people around requires a phone call way too often. This would make it a breeze

@arieljalali @loganknowitall Speaking of Uber, what is that weird Uber vehicle you got in at the end of the video?

@arieljalali @lylemckeany I think they called those things "Taxis" back in the day...it's like Uber for old people ;) But yeah, for some reason SF taxis are a whole bunch of random shapes and colors. I was almost afraid to walk into that one!
