One of the most unique and common forms of art on the Internet these days is called concept art. Concept art is a form of illustration where main goal is to convey a visual representation of the design before putting it into the final product. In this post, we have collected some eye popping examples of concept art that will surely inspire you and give your imagination a boost. Most of these are created with Photoshop. So let’s have a look at these excellent examples of concept art.
The times when paper was considered to be the primary medium for artistic expression is long gone. Many writers and designers use digital media to improvise and develop their ideas. However, there is something particuliar in this “physical” canvas — something that keeps us getting back to paper when we want to brainstorm ideas in a notebook, doodle around in a sketchbook, collect inspiration in a scrapbook or just draw some sketches for the next project.
A small collection of very cool and creative VJ Animations I found. Definitely worth a look!
Demo of the RHIFID speakers developed at CIID. Using a combination of RFID technology, Processing and Arduino, the speakers work as location aware controllers, allowing the user to interact with music and the environment by moving the speakers around.Paragraph. Putting the two speakers together triggers the speakers into playing one common song, creating a social listening experience. The RHIFID speakers can also be modified into musical creators rather than just controllers, allowing location and rotation to control such things as pitch, samples and effects.
Don't expect to ride it on solid ground -- much less water -- but what you see above is indeed a hoverboard that floats. Using electromagnets embedded in the podium and a laser system to measure its position, artist Nils Guadagnin has managed to keep a familiar-looking pink plank aloft, a full five years and five months before the real deal supposedly sees common use. Give the man a pair of kicks, a car and a flux capacitor, and he'll be all set. Video after the break.
Seems Google Chrome has started a trend, because now Opera wants to prove it's even better then Chrome.
Era-defining records, especially in terms of the hyper-accelerated eras of dance music, can often become an albatross around their creators' necks: last season's essential tune is today's sonic throwback. But completely changing tack between albums can be treacherous, too, as Booka Shade discovered when they followed up their acclaimed second album Movements (2006) with The Sun & the Neon Light (2008). Where Movements sprang agilely between electro-house, minimal, Metro Area-style disco and the Cologne label Kompakt's branded fusion of techno and pop – and included, in Body Language, Mandarine Girl and In White Rooms, three of the most ubiquitous club tracks of 05/06 – the latter album was a leaden plod into more brooding territory, awash with live orchestration and 'proper' songs, that didn't seem to play to Arno Kammermeier and Walter Merziger's undoubted talents.
There are moments when the poised Booka Shade of old can be glimpsed. The Door, which cribs its compressed bass chassis from Azzido da Bass's Doom's Night, develops into a tightly sprung house groove which in turn gives way to a simple retro electro synth pattern. Teenage Spaceman is the classic Booka Shade template – essentially a muted take on Germanic trance – at its most familiar, but abetted here by a melancholic synthesised brass riff. Such moments are rare, however, and merely competent when measured alongside the purposefulness of Movements. When Booka Shade are this off the mark, More! is undoubtedly less. Nevertheless, it's Booka Shade, and it's always worth a listen!
