As robots continue to take our jobs, at least rock bands know that they are safe from… wait. What the? Nevermind. Yep, what you’re about to watch is an all-robot band named Compressorhead performing Nirvana’s classic Smells Like Teen Spirit.
I can’t help thinking that The Electric Knife Orchestra is the beginning of a robot that kills by chopping humans into pieces to a catchy soundtrack. Like, say, the Bee Gee’s Stayin’ Alive. Yeah, this is some creepy stuff.
This is what 80’s rockers would have looked like if they were robots. This robotic band goes by the name Z-MACHINES. It sounds like a human band if you close your eyes, but if they are open you know that they are robots, ready to kill us after the show.
Last time we checked in with YouTuber bd594, his robotic band was playing House of the Rising Sun, and before that some Marilyn Manson. But despite their melodic charms, I always thought his band of electronic misfits was missing something… vocals.
Bands that turn a new iPod nano 6G into a watch are getting to be very common. It seems like every time I turn around a new one is on the market. A guy is looking to bring a couple more to market over on KickStarter and his are so much cooler than any of the other bands I have seen.
I never really was that interested in an iPod Nano, but this little watch band might make me change my mind. It basically makes your iPod Nano look like a bona fide watch. Plus, it also looks pretty good.
The watch band is made by Hex and you can currently pre-order it for $24.95
Geeky is as geek does I always say. If you really want to show off your new iPod nano and prove to the world that you are geek, what you need to do is turn your new nano into a massive square wrist watch.
For those of you who think all music should be played on guitars and drums, games like Rock Band keep you jamming all night long. But for those who prefer to blow into their musical instruments, look no further than this new game for the Nintendo DS.
Fresh from Japan, Mokushise!
Already sick of playing the piano on your iPhone? Maybe it’s time to hit the drums.
Developer MooTheCow has created this homebrew drum machine application called “Drummer” that runs on the iPhone or iPod Touch.
Drummer can play up to 15 unique audio samples (one on each finger touch pad), and takes advantage of multi-touch capabilities, so you can play up to five sounds at once.
For a brief moment yesterday, an image appeared over on GameStop showing off this forthcoming add-on for your Rock Band performances. The kit includes everything you need to put on your own Spinal Tap-esque stage show in your garage, except for the 18-inch tall Stonehenge.
According to the box are, Performance Design Product’s Rock Band Stage Kit is an “Interactive Light and Smoke Stage Show” to accompany your Rock Band jam sessions.
When I came across this Guitar Hero controller made out of LEGO blocks, I was impressed. But once I found out it was fully-functional, I was blown away.
Built by LEGO fanatic David McNeely (aka Blue Star LEGOs), this is the third in his series of working Guitar Hero controllers.
Modeled after a Fender Geddy Lee Jazz four-string Bass guitar, the controller uses the electronic guts of a standard GH guitar, placed delicately inside of a LEGO body.
Every part of the controller works just like the original, including the fret buttons, strum bar, whammy bar and control buttons.
Now all David needs to do is build a complete Rock Band LEGO edition.
Electronic Arts has started to circulate a list of 30 tracks that are currently on the playlist for their upcoming multiplayer music game Rock Band. The list includes a number of classic rock tracks, but also offers up some great alternative and more edgy tunes.
This trio of pint-sized robots connects to your media player and rocks out to the beat of your favorite tracks.
The robotic musical group, known as Bandroid, has a lead guitar player, keyboardist and drummer, which can each wildly gesticulate to the beat.
