2Pac Hologram May Go on Tour
If you’re a fan of rap music, you may have already heard about the Tupac Shakur “hologram” that was on stage at the Coachella Music Festival in California back over the weekend. That means that the performance wasn’t simply a archival video running from an old performance, rather it’s a synthetic creation.

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.

Hi-Five Turntable Watch: Put You Records on (Your Wrist)
A long time back, I came across a watch that looked like a tiny turntable, and thought it was kind of cool. But I was never that thrilled with the ordinary analog dial on that design.

Tabber LED Light Sleeve Helps You Learn to Play with a Real Guitar

This little arduino controlled Drummerbot was created by Steffest, and is called the My Little Arduino Drummerbot. Just like the name implies, this little robot can play the drums either by itself or along with you.

Queen 40th Anniversary Box Set Comes on Golden Orb Flash Drive

Queen 40th Anniversary Box Set Comes on Golden Orb Flash Drive
I’m of the opinion that anyone who’s been in high school since the 1980s will be familiar with at least a couple songs from the rock band Queen. I’m not sure it’s physically possible to make it an entire football season without hearing We Will Rock You played at least at one game or pep rally.

Interactive Musical Poster Promotes Bands with Their Own Music
I think some people choose to give their bands really weird names so that it’ll pop out and make an impression on people. I mean, aside from fancy graphics, a neat logo, and a cool band name, what else can bands put on posters to grab a someone’s attention?

Plugication iOS App Restarts Music When You Plug Your Headphones Back In
Here’s a first-world problem that has bugged the hell out of me. If you’re listening to music on an iOS device using a pair of headphones and for some reason you unplug them from your device, the music player will pause the playback.

3D Printed Guitars Rock the House

3D Printed Guitars Rock the House
If you ask me, 3D printing is the future of small-scale and short-run manufacturing. Assuming that the technology can come down in cost and increase in speed, many of the smaller items we use will eventually be 3D printed – at least custom stuff, like these awesome 3D printed guitars by Olaf Diegel.

Digitar: Revolutionizing the Future of the Electric Guitar

Digitar: Revolutionizing the Future of the Electric Guitar
One of my favorite instruments is the guitar, although I never really learned how to play it all that well. I’m constantly fascinated with the people who do, however, and even more fascinated by people who have actually thought up ways to modernize the instrument.

Quadrotors Play the James Bond Theme Song

Quadrotors Play the James Bond Theme Song
It seems that quadrocopters can do just about anything. Like the other robots, they are busy taking our jobs. In this case, they are getting ready to put conductors and orchestras out of business. They’ve hijacked the James Bond theme and have Moneypenny and Q tied up in the back!
