The Rapping Weatherman

There haven’t been too many news casts that have been totally hilarious (on purpose), but when I heard about the rapping weatherman on Fox News, I had to take a look.  I have no way of knowing who wrote his lyrics, but although his delivery is a bit hap-hazzard at times, there are some points where he does spit some impressive lines.  Check the method, and keep in mind this is all totally real.

Multi-Touch DJ Tables…

Recently, some peoples worlds have been turned upside down once again with a multitouch-enabled DJ rig built by Gregory Kaufman. The set up employs a gesture-based interface that lets you spin the virtual turntables and use a variety of taps and finger swipes to replicate the main functions of a regular DJ deck. What’s more, Kaufman says that the only gear a DJ would have to carry is a USB drive with their own music and settings, which they’d simply plug into the multitouch table at a club — assuming the idea catches on universally, that is. To top things off, the system would also be able to accommodate regular DJ gear for some added flexibility, and even provide enough room for two DJs if you’re looking to battle or share the stage.  I instantly see some functionality issues, and I can already hear the massive classic vinyl crowd crying about how it makes you less of a “true DJ” when you use it.  But personally I think the concept is worth taking some time to consider, and I would totally be interested if someone put one of these in front of me to try out.
