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.

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.
