Brett Domino Band

This Should we have Fun with... Geek..?? nope.. they are Keybourd Junkies..

The Stylophone Beatbox

Stylophone for the 21st century.

The Stylophone Beatbox has just been released, 40 years after the original Stylophone took the world by storm. We were lucky enough to receive one of the first units in the US. I'll post a video shortly, but here are my initial thoughts:

  • It's dirt cheap, retailing for only $25.50. I'm tempted to buy a pair - one for each hand.
  • It plays sampled sounds rather than the simple weedy oscillator that made the original famous. That makes for some surprising audio coming out of tech that looks so 1960s from the outside. You can still slide around the control surface. The Beatbox is rigged so that several samples can be triggered at once.

  • It has a built-in looping sequencer. You can tap out a beat on any of the three sound banks, and the Beatbox will keep looping until the 3 x AA batteries run flat. You can also play other sounds over the loop.

  • It has a record scratching sound effect you can trigger from any of the sound banks, and it's rather cleverly camouflaged. Drop one any time you need a little turntablism, even without a turntable in sight.
  • There's a tempo control for the loop, so you can enter your beats at a slower speed, then rev it up when it's time to freestyle.
  • Even though it uses a lot of modern sounds (including a few samples from champ beatboxer MC Zani), it retains that retro charm. Not just because of the overall look, but the quality of the sounds coming out of the thing.

  • Go ahead and put headphones on. The built in speaker is fun, but the sounds really come to life when amplified.
  • It's the perfect companion for an original $19 Stylophone, or as we see in this marvelous video by plastic keyboard heroes the Brett Domino Trio, a second Stylophone Beatbox.

AIDA: robot yang menemani anda dalam perjalanan

AIDA: robot yang menemani anda dalam perjalanan

AIDA (Affective Intelligent Driving Agent)

Sebagai robot, AIDA akan mempelajari seluruh kebiasaan yang anda lakukan mulai dari rute perjalanan yang sering digunakan, restoran yang sering dikunjungi sebelum pulang ke rumah dari kantor, tempat pengisian bensin (SPBU) dan lainnya.

Semakin lama AIDA berada di mobil anda maka AIDA akan semakin pintar dan mengenal anda. Misalnya, anda sering melewati suatu daerah sebelum pulang ke rumah dari kantor maka AIDA otomatis akan menampilkan rute ke area tersebut pada saat anda memasuki mobil.

Kalau dari segi bentuk, mungkin kita akan berpikir robot E-Wall karena memang mirip dimana AIDA akan memproyeksi sebuah bentuk mata yang bisa berubah-rubah ekspresinya.
