Mirmir is a company from Los Angeles, CA, that makes a photo booth for parties and high-end events. Their goal is to make every photo taken within their booths to look great.
The company was created by two entrepreneurs, both professional photographers. Forced to disclose what differentiates their company from many others like it, the entrepreneurs said that the secret to their great photos was the lighting and the software. The software auto-corrects otherwise imperfect images.
Every event that includes a Mirmir also includes 2-3 human supervisors who guide guests into their perfect pose. A black and white filter is applied for a timeless look. In three years of operations, the company has grossed $4,000,000 in sales.

These life jackets for humans are as comfortable as they are practical. The segmented foam panels allow for breathability, flexibility, and added comfort in your swimming life jacket. The panelized design ventilates air to keep the user cool during hot days on the water, and the panels flex with the user to create a form-fitting design along with deep armholes that allow for a full range of upper body motion.
This inflatable life jacket has clips on either side so you can clip connect your Beverage Bobber floating can cooler and allow for hands-free floating.
The multi-functional technology is in the multi-directional dual sliding zipper that allows the zipper to close in one direction like a typical life vest, but also a second slider closing in the opposite direction to be used when wearing it as an upside-down life vest. This swim life jacket is the first multifunctional Coast Guard-approved.
