The Incredibox.


No, this is not some sort of ‘Super-P*ssy’… The Incredibox is a functional and funny flash-based music making system.  Its very basic, but it is capable of creating some unique and interesting musical selections by handling a selection of human “beat-box” loops provided by the french artist.

Check the video from Gamepro. (And that is NOT me inside the bubble)

Sony recently unveiled their ‘Playstation Move’. Essentially its the Nintendo Wii in the gym… with a protein shake… on steroids… with the combined strength of every Power Ranger… after eating Mister T… and Vin Diesel. Click the picture for an exclusive video from Gamepro.

You down with A.P.P.?


His work can be viewed here.

Yeah, you know me… But who you may not know is the man behind some of the moving photo effects on djstorm.com, and on the visualizations for the mixes I post on youtube.  Visual effects artist Adam Patton has a long and impressive resume that grows by the second.  (Sorry A.P… I tried to say that without sounding gay)  Having worked with many people, including (but definitely not limited to) League 510, BeatStreetS, (and yours truly DJ Storm), on web design, music videos, and a slew of other digital projects, A.P.P. is someone you should be down with when working in the realm of digital media.
