Startup takes outrageous stunts to new heights

Sometimes companies make outrageous claims in the name of marketing themselves - like saying they can create a webpage in mid air in seven minutes. But Kiwi startup Designbymobile put their money where they mouth is and did just that - and got some quick publicity in the process.

Chris Hirst and Leo Zhao created the page on their second skydive from 8000 feet - using the first to grab footage.

The site ended up complete with text, images, links, a video and a slideshow.
