The Petecube “is a research project investigating the integration of touch with both sound and vision. The focus is on musical instruments, as they provide an excellent platform for experimentation. The result is a range of musical instruments that explore different modalities of interaction.” I like how it looks…that’s good enough for me! [via]
I think everyone in the world knows I’m a little crazy about The London Police’s crazy characters. It was a huge surprise that they are releasing their first designer figure, The Lad, any time now. I think you’ll agree it’s pretty amazing. However, at Â£60 I may have to give it a miss…maybe the TLP dog bowl is more in my price range at Â£14!
I’ve had Rockaway Art waiting to be linked up for ages now but it always seemed a little empty for my liking. Anyways, thanks to Mjar’s Hooked On, I’ve just found out that there’s been a hefty increase in activity. So, check it out for lots of great artwork by Flying Fortress, Dave the Chimp, Senor b & Thesigner. [via]
Each Soundbomb “a handmade design object for interactive transmission. An integrated soundmodule makes it possible to record any given sound and then activate it through a motion detector. As a Non-Visual Graffiti, with its origin in streetart, Soundbombs give the possibility to tag a place in an acoustic form: a welcoming greeting at the entrance or a warning of a bad restaurant.” Fantastically fun idea and a lovely looking object.
