Alum's Invention Brings out the Best in iPhone
A 2005 graduate of the Weatherhead School of Management, Mike Belsito is a self-described creative thunker. A co-founder of Thunk, an incubator dedicated to bringing creative ideas to life, Belsito is co-inventor of a product that will make you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?"
Last year, he and his business partner introduced Appstand, which converts an iPhone into a digital picture frame.
"It dawned on us that as functional as iPhone is, most of the time it lays dormant in a pocket or on a desk or bedside," he says. "It became apparent to us that a frame-style stand would allow users to get the most out of their apps during times when their iPhone normally would do nothing."
