Creating The Future In 3 Dimensions.


600x400_futurama

A few weeks ago, someone on the DJ Storm’s Blog writing team heard a random kid say something about “You want I should give him the CLAMPS?!” which sparked a group-wide “Futurama” binge watching session on Netflix.  (Where the entire series is featured for your viewing pleasure.)  Following multiple team members watching the full series, we stumbled onto a 3D Futurama test shot conceived by digital wizard “seccovan”.  Check out how he put together this incredible re-imagination of the Futurama world.

If you took the time to see all the incredible detail that went into a project of this scale, check out the amazing, but very short, finished product.

 

 

You’ll Never Believe What The New Mortal Kombat Looks Like.

NetherRealm Studios has debuted another reveal trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X this time focusing on Kano.  “Mortal Kombat” creator Ed Boon walks you through the video and reveals the three different variations for the character – Cutthroat, Cybernetic and Commando.
Kano’s cutthroat style sees the character use his cybernetic enhancements to power up his attack abilities. The Cybernetic variation provides Kano with more long range abilities, and defense from areal attacks, while Commando enhances Kano’s grappling abilities.  Mortal Kombat X is scheduled for release in 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

How About A Solar Powered DJ Booth In Your Local Park.

Have you ever found yourself wandering through a suburban park and wondering “this experience would be better with music”?  Well, your prayers may about to be answered, as Dutch sports company Yalp have developed a solar-powered DJ booth that is popping up in parks all over the place. Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands and Australia are the early adopters, and the booth has been positioned in public, absolutely free spots for anyone to wander up and start jamming their favorite tunes.

It’s a simple enough device – you bring your mobile device and rest it on a special pad, which picks up the musical output without any wires (seriously, it’s like magic). Then you can muck around with the various effects (bitcrusher, delay, pitch shift etc) using the platters as controllers, and crossfade as necessary. Obviously if you wanna get the most out of it as an amateur DJ then you’ll need two devices, but we reckon that collaboration is being encouraged here.  One thing that does seem a bit iffy to us though is that with your phone sitting on the booth, relatively unguarded, how long will it last before someone snatches it? They are in public parks, after all.

Pioneer recently released a small tribute to the gear, tech, and people who have shaped the diretion music has taken over the last 2 decades.  Check the method below.

DJ’s Eye View.


In a mesmerizing point-of-view video, DJ Angelo demonstrates the intricate process of blending tracks from seven vinyl records. “Turntablism” was coined, apparently, to distinguish between a DJ who simply plays full records and a DJ who manipulates their sounds in various ways. It’s pretty amazing to see the various elements of the track come together over time, so make sure to watch full screen, with the sound up.

The Prada LG 3.0 Phone.


LG and fashion label Prada are collaborating for the third time to release the first LG Prada smartphone, the Prada phone by LG 3.0.  The phone combines Prada’s style with LG’s innovative technology, including one of the biggest and brightest screens in the world with 4.3inch and 800-nit screen.  Menus and the user interface are also influenced by Prada with black, grey and white menu and icons.  The Prada Phone by LG 3.0 adopts LG’s “tri-dual” design meaning it has a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM per core, bringing a total of 1GB.  The 8 mega-pixel camera is a real highlight because it can record 1080p video at a smooth 30fps.  The PRADA Phone also supports  WiFi , 3G and Bluetooth.  On-board memory weighs in at 8GB, which is upgradable through the use of microSD cards.  The phone runs Android’s Gingerbread OS. It is planned that the handset will update to Ice Cream Sandwich in the future.

The first LG Prada, also known as LG KE850, was the world’s first mobile phone to use a touchscreen display.  Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG Eletronics Mobile Communications Company, said, “Our working relationship with PRADA is unique in its longevity and success, something no other phone company and luxury brand have been able to replicate.”  Designer labels attached to phones is not a novelty these days considering the Hugo Boss Samsung Galaxy Ace or the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 devices.

Daft Punk – Something About Us (Cherokee Remix)


Click the pic to listen.

Within the realm of electronic music, no song is safe from becoming remixed and France’s Cherokee has chosen to rework Daft Punk’s 2001 single “Something About Us.” The transformation of the iconic duo’s record sees a relaxed melody and over all simplistic instrumentation. So while many are undoubtedly loyal to the legendary French group, this is still something you should check out.  Click the pic above to take a listen.

The Lamborghini Estoque.


Lamborghini doesn’t usually build a concept car without it getting put to some kind of use in the future. It’s never happened, and we’ll place bets on the fact that it won’t ever happen. Try as they may to deny the fact that the Estoque would not see the production line, this concept vehicle stood a fantastic chance at becoming the third model in Lamborghini’s line-up.  To prove this theory, I found a recent statement from Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann.  In the statement he confirmed that the company is indeed preparing a third model, and that this new model is not an SUV as people have speculated, but a four-door luxury sedan.

“We have opportunities outside the supercar business, and we showed that with Estoque. It had a more enthusiastic response than we had expected. It was the right time to see if the brand could go outside of supercars. Even now, people are still emailing me about us making the Estoque.”

And if the strong demand for a production version of the Estoque doesn’t make them actually build it, the recent success the company has been having on the Chinese market may just give Lamborghini the final push they need, especially since luxury four-door sedans are in high demand over there.

A Quick And Comprehensive Guide To Type.


The ‘Fast Lane’ Experiment.


After having introduced The Fun Theory (with the brilliant piano stairs), Volkswagen now comes up with another interesting action which speeds up life a little: the fast lane in the supermarket. The idea is simple: some shopping carts are pimped with a skateboard, providing some extra shopping fun for those who can’t stand people who take shopping as an all-day event.  Besides the fact that this is a rather interesting marketing strategy by Volkswagen (campaign for the Polo GTI), it’s also interesting to see an upcoming stream of projects which intend to separate different spaces in our modern society.
