  • Like it…

  • Wow. Try hitting play on all three of the videos, turning up the volume on your computer and zoning out. Sounds like a rainstorm. 🙂

  • I played all three videos at the same time.
    It sounded like a rainstorm.

  • hahah i love that you two both did the exact same thing without knowing the other one had

    i too have experienced the rainstorm

  • staring at just the filler wire in the third video gives the impression that a circle has been formed out of the dc-motors. the rainstorm is incredible!

  • I hear the rainstorm, too! Love it.

  • Mina

    This is really cool 🙂

  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this before, very cool idea though. I’ve been to galleries and heard strange sounds mixed with footage on large projectors but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a ‘sound sculpture’ before. I bet it’s even better to be in the room at the same time.

  • very interesting to look at and hear – love this original concept

  • I saw/heard this installation a few months ago at the Vooruit in Ghent, Belgium, it was part of an exhibition there. I really loved it, the sound was really overwhelming, and yet the idea is so simple. it put a smile on my face 🙂

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
