Future Shopping - 1966
The creators of this 1966 video predicted that we would (in the future) be using home computers to shop and bank from home. They were right! It's all surprisingly accurate... except for the weird chauvinism.

Here's what Teenage Engineering, the designers of the synth, have to say about it...
There's also a built in motion sensor; you can shake the thing around to change the timbre of the sounds. Or sample beats directly from the built-in FM radio (how cool). You can even "memorize a tune by whistling it into the built-in microphone." All in all, it's pretty amazing what they fit into this thing.
Interestingly enough... they're not mentioning a price.

I finally started twittering. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I thought I'd try the waters. You can check me out here.

I redesigned my Tinselman site. The Gallery remains essentially the same; the most-used words found in the comments for any one painting become the title for that painting. So please continue to name my paintings! (They need you.)

I recently emailed a link of the the "Melodyne Direct Note Access" demo to a dear friend; he responded almost immediately with the following reaction:
Melodyne is crazy cool! Have you actually installed it and tried it out? I watched the demo, and it's like I'm watching an audio version of one of those eye-rolling effects in a sci-fi, where they snapshot and image and then extrapolate a 3d model out of it, or "enhance" the bit depth of an image =). If I had seen this in a movie, I would have definitely laughed.

This is the view from my desk: a pinboard. It runs from one end of the wall to the other and is covered with sketches and quick ideas. I usually sketch on newprint but sometimes I'll grab whatever's closest at hand...
And speaking of ideas, I'm currently working on a project named Bugfish and have just redesigned the Bugfish website. I've only posted a small sampling of the project... but I may post more later.
