WASTED GERMAN BEER is WASTED GERMAN YOUTH‘s latest offspring. It’s a Bavarian controlled organic farming bioland eco beer. Can anyone give me a better name for a beer? Anyway, the WASTED GERMAN BEER launch is today, so if you’re in Berlin drop by at Memhardstrasse 1, 10178 Berlin between 2 and 7PM.

Net Famous But Poor

December 14th, 2010

Seacrestcheadle dumped this animated gif on dump.fm. Net Famous But Poor … true dat true dat.
Last months hosting bill was $322.61, meaning 1293 GB of bandwidth and some server cycles. Who wants to publish an ad on the right here?

Fashion Show with Google

December 2nd, 2010

“Fashion Show with Google” is a 30 second TV commercial made by Robbin Ingvarsson & Waldemar Wegelin for the campaign ‘more with Google’ in Japan. It features the Image Search functions ‘sort by color’ and ‘similar images’. I really like it because it shows you that you can use the internet in many different ways.

And as a bonus: the Google Translate Beat Box. Try it yourself, click here.

The Making Of Nike Music Shoe

April 28th, 2010

Remember the Nike Music Shoe ad from 2 weeks ago? Well, here’s the making of video. Seems like it was a very fun project.

Nike Music Shoe

April 14th, 2010

Nike Music Shoe is an awesome ad for the Nike Free Run+ shoe. In the video you can see Hifana doing a live performance by using the shoes as controllers. By bending the flexible sole of the Nike Free Run+, they can control different sounds. I’m actually pretty sure that it is real because I think that I spotted Daito Manabe in the video. And we all know what he’s capable of. I guess they’ve used some flexible sensors and hooked them up to MaxMSP. Great work!

Indeed the shoes used in the video are the real sound controllers. Tomoaki Yanagisawa of 4nchor5 la6 was responsible for the hardware part. He added flexible and accelerometer sensors to the shoes. Daito Manabe of rhizomatiks did the sound programming with Max.
They were both commissioned by Wieden + Kennedy Tokyo for this project.

Mobile Mobile

December 16th, 2009

Mobile Mobile is a Christmas installation at the Lost Boys international office in London. They used 50 old company cellphones to make this huge mobile. Each phone is controlled by a computer and has its own tone. When no one interacts with the sculpture, it plays “Carol of the Bells”. But you can also play with it. You can control it through this website or you can send a tweet with #lbitree and it will react to it. If you’re in London, you can just pop by at their office.

Hermès × Tokujin Yoshioka

December 8th, 2009

Tokujin Yoshioka was asked by Maison Hermès Japan to design a window display, featuring its famous scarfs. It’s actually a new version of a display he did for the brand back in 2004. But it is still amazing in its simplicity. Make sure that you watch the video.
