We’ve known paying with your smartphone for some time now and you probably do it every single day. Amsterdam startup Klearly reverses this process and lets you use your smartphone as a terminal for receiving payments.
Of course, it is especially useful for entrepreneurs and small businesses. You no longer have to use a PIN or connect to the (wired) internet and are more free to accept payments. The app is free to use and you pay 1.65% of the amount per transaction. Good luck organizer!

With Reimagine, you can improve old, black and white or faded photos with the help of artificial intelligence. The blurred edges become sharp again and the gray sky turns blue.
