This week's Tech Tuesday segment looked at a company based in Telluride that has an app to help people send customized cards through the U.S. Postal Service.

The company is called Felt, and it works as an app available on iTunes. (It's not yet available in the Google Play store.) From the app you can choose from a range of custom designs, and fonts that make it look like the card and even the envelope were written by hand.

The company started as a classic startup story: The founder attended a party, and wanted to send a thank you note, but didn't want to wait for a card shop to open to get the task done.

That founder, Tomer Alpert, will be one of the speakers during the Colorado Tech Summit on Wednesday, Oct. 19 in Denver.

In addition to speeches and panel discussions from politicians and leaders of big technology operations in Colorado, there will be a "Youth Innovation Showcase."

That will include:

  • Aquatic Robotics Team of the St. Vrain Valley School District Innovation Center: A Denver Zoo Partnership
  • Denver School of Science and Technology Stapleton Robotics – Brute Force: The Value of Experiential Education in STEM
  • Coronado High School, Colorado Springs – Cougars Gone Wired: FIRST Robotics Team
  • Highlands Ranch High School – Droning On: Project Based Calculus III Drone Project
  • Grand Junction – Team Grit Robotics: Cogburn Robot
