Attigo TT

May 23rd, 2008

The Attigo TT is digital DJ setup designed by Scott Hobbs, an Innovation Product Design student from the UK. There are already a few mp3 DJ mixing systems out there, but his is a little different. He didn’t use any breakthrought technology, just 2 touchscreens to manipulate a visualisation of audio files. He used Flash for the interface and Max/MSP to control the sound files. He has a lot of documentation on this project on his website. Honestly, I don’t think that it’s very innovative, but well done anyway. Hey it’s a functional prototype afterall.

DJ Picture Disk

May 16th, 2008

Reuben Sutherland printed some short video clips on vinyl, just a few frames. Then he plays them with his turntable and films it again to use in his VJ work. The effect is quite good. VinylVideo is some other project where they really encoded video in the vinyl grooves, even more impressive.

Explicit Content Only

PARENTAL ADVISORY EXPLICIT CONTENT ONLY

I’m a true ni9e / F.A.T. fanboy, here is his next project: Explicit Content Only, a vinyl album. On side A you can hear a curse words only version of N.W.A.’s classic album Straight Outta Compton. On the B side is the Explicit Content Only version of Eazy-E’s ‘Eazy Duz It’. You can of course buy it or download the mp3’s. Or even better, watch it spin.
