DJ Mobile could be the loudest car ever

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2008

DJ Mobile could be the loudest car everOne look and you can tell that this vehicle is all sound. It would probably drive down your street one early morning and break every window so that when you woke up, window replacement companies would be on the move and busy all week. That’s not what it was designed for however. It’s the creation of Dutch artist Olaf Mooij, who prefers his sound loud and on the outside of his car rather then inside.

The DJ Mobile is designed to be used as a mobile PA system. It houses two turn-tables and as you can see, a rear full of speakers. Find a party, park this monster, then operate it from a DJ platform while you stand through the sunroof. All I can say is, anything driving behind the DJ mobile best not tailgate as it could surely make you deaf.

Zune Bug concept: Light & music

Posted in Zune by Conner Flynn on August 31st, 2008

Zune Bug concept: Light & musicThis concept is designed by Ashley Payne and called the Zune Bug. Think of it as a low-power light source that can stream music to guide you in the dark. Like an update to the classic night lite that’s been used forever to scare off monsters. It sports a light sensor, will turn on automatically in the dark and it will even change color depending on the mood of the music that is being played. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we see something like this go into production, minus the Zune aspect.

Move over Guitar Hero, Guitar Praise is here

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on August 27th, 2008

Move over Guitar Hero, Guitar Praise is hereSo everyone and their dog are playing Guitar Hero, but what about your neighbor Ned Flanders? What with Rock and Roll being charged with sex, drugs and everything a good Christian could hate, it’s great for heathens, but what about little Rod and Todd? How is good old Reverend Lovejoy going to rock in his spare time and still be holier then thou?

Enter Guitar Praise, sure to be the boring-est, most goody two shoes, and holiest answer to Guitar Hero yet. I can’t confirm this, but I’m thinking you can unlock heroes from the 700 Club complete with polyester suit as well as big haired female pitchmen who will praise the lord, ask for donations and then rock your socks off with no suggestive or lewd content whatsoever. The game will be coming soon to Mac and PC for $100. It’s bundled with one wireless guitar, that surprisingly doesn’t sport a cross on the end and there’s a long list of exciting music from people you don’t know.

Scented MP3 Players that stink

Scented MP3 Players that stink
I think we all want an mp3 player that does more the just pump out tunes. In this case, these mp3 players give off various smells. They only feature 256MB of storage, but they make up for that by acting like a human air freshener, with scents like chocolate, rose, lemon, strawberry and some others.

No Pine Tree car freshener smell? I would have thought that was a given. Chances are you, like I, are not going to get one. On the other hand if you walk around with a foul cloud about you like Pigpen from the Peanuts cartoon, this might help clear your personal airspace a bit. And I wouldn’t expect these to mask any flatulence problems by being in your pocket.

ZVUE Elvis Presley PMP, the thin Elvis
Maybe the Journey DAP wasn’t your thing, and the Simpsons iPod doesn’t feature Comic Book guy like you wanted. The Elvis PMP from ZVUE is probably what you want since you already have the velvet paintings and busts throughout the house.

He’s the king baby. Comes with 1GB of Elvis video clips, a 2.4-inch display, FM tuner, voice recorder, photo / text viewer and USB connectivity. If you want thin Elvis to eat more tunes just use a microSD card. It will cost you $49.88.

Modified Pikachu instruments freak us out

Modified Pikachu instruments freak us out
Some find Pikachu to be extremely cute. Me, I’ve always been on the fence about that. What you will see in the 2 accompanying videos, knocked me off the fence and made me run for my life. This is not cute. It’s creepy in the way that clowns are creepy.

That spiky cyborg Pikachu seems to be the ringleader and was apparently recently assimilated into the Pikachu collective. As for the rest of them and the music they make together, complete with seizure inducing flashing eyes… I just wish I had never seen it. This is just totally warped. And yet you can’t look away.

Creative Zen Mozaic PMP
Check out Creative’s new Zen Mozaic model. You know that design is really pretty…pretty awful. Mozaic. We get it. It just doesn’t look cool. Now maybe if Creative took those little squares and rectangles and made them displays…

Anyway, here’s some specs. 2GB/4GB/8GB capacities, Built-in speaker, 1.8″ TFT display, playback of audio, video and photos, Integrated FM radio, and Voice recording capability. Comes in black, silver and girl friendly pink.

Skeleton made up of old melted cassettes

Skeleton made up of old melted cassettes
Many of us have a closet full of old cassette tapes that we haven’t seen since at least the mid nineties. Did you ever think that they could turn into something useful? Like a creepy and cool skeleton for instance?

Brian Dettmer is a man who knows what to do with old music. Melt it and let your music rise from the ashes as something undead. It’s especially appropriate if you use heavy metal tapes. Never throw anything away people. Instead, make it into something else. Imagine how much creepier it would have looked had he used VHS tapes.

Star Wars MP3 player: May The Force Rock You

Star Wars MP3 player: May The Force Rock You
So you’re chillin’ with your Clone Trooper laptop, wearing your flannel like George Lucas and waiting in line for that new Ewok action figure that has a big release today. But what you need is some tunes.

This is what you want right here. A Star Wars mp3 player. The front features a close-up of Darth Vader with glowing red eyes, which is cool, but sadly, this MP3 player only features 512MB of memory and a display that looks like it’s 30 years old. It does come with a built-in radio however. It’s currently out of stock at Amazon.co.uk, but ForbiddenPlanet will release a similar product shown above for about $80 US at the end of the month.

DIY Lego record player

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2008

Is there anything Lego can’t do? This guy builds himself an authentic old time record player using Legos and a plastic cup in under 3 minutes. Then proceeds to play himself a record, thereby proving the whole deal isn’t just the product of too much bong water. In this video we also learn that a coffee cup will improve the sound quality of a Lego turntable. Lego 8-Track anyone?

Philips alarm clock with LCD digital photo displays

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on July 17th, 2008

Philips alarm clock with LCD digital photo displaysChances are you’re looking for a clock that will wake you up more gently then the Dumbbell Alarm Clock. This alarm clock from Philips should do the trick.

It features gradually increasing alarm volume, so that the clock wakes you up very gently while playing your favorite tunes, using a radio station or a buzzer alarm. It does double duty as a multiple display digital photo frame, each of the five pictures displaying at 128 x 128 pixels on 1.5 inch displays. You can even make them rotate in a slide show. Some other features include a calendar and voice recorder that you can record important information on.

Muso voice control for your iPod

Muso voice control for your iPod
If having all of that music at your fingertips isn’t enough for you and you want a still easier way to access your music, this might be just the thing. The Muso is a gadget that plugs into the iPod, and gives you voice control.

It will synchronize with your iTunes library on the first use, without any training. It understands requests like “Play some Beatles”, “Give me Rap”, or even “Play me something like the last song”. It costs $159, and the battery lasts for 10 hours, which is plenty of time for you to have talked yourself hoarse, much to the dismay of those around you.

Hercules i-XPS SoundBox Portable Speaker for iPods

Hercules i-XPS SoundBox Portable Speaker for iPods
The i-XPS Soundbox is probably designed for those who want to chill by the pool or at the beach, or wherever, but the first thing I thought when I saw these is that they are downright fugly. The portable speaker will enclose and suffocate your iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod Mini, iPod Classic, and other MP3 Players.

It has an integrated mini jack cable connection that connects it to the speakers through the headphone jack on the your MP3 Player. Then just zip it up to keep your MP3 player safe. It’s powered by 2 AAA batteries. I know you can’t wait to dress your iPod up as either Stone, Splash, or Spray design.

Sound Chaser also chases vinyl

Sound Chaser also chases vinyl
Remember that VW bus that drives around on records? Yeah, this is kinda like that. This one can go wherever it wants, wandering like a train on a track made of vinyl records.

Yuri Suzuki and collaborator Yaroslav Tencer are quick to point out that the records they used are just cheap finds from used record shops, so don’t worry, nothing rare or priceless was sacrificed. They’re creative, not nuts. Imagine what you could do with this thing. You could have it zipping around every which way, in and out of other stuff while it makes it’s music. Check out the video below.
