Check out this experimental video for Nosaj Thing’s collaboration with Chance The Rapper, directed by Tokyo-based media artist, Daito Manabe (who we previously featured doing amazing things with electronic pulses back in 2008).
While CG effects are nothing new, the use of little drone cameras to capture the movements of the two dancers teetering on the edge of reality and illusion gives everything a very unique feel! Watch “Cold Stares” below and learn more about the making of here.
Pow! Wow! Japan doesn’t officially start in Tokyo until October 17th, but things have already gotten started.

The latest Kickstarter from London-based Studio Banana Things offers a futuristic headset that will allow you to “hear twice as much,” or at least stay connected to the world around you while privately enjoying your favourite podcast or Booooooom mix.
The proposed Batband device works by transmitting sound through the bones of your skull, as opposed to traditional sound-devices that plug/cover your ears.
I can honestly say that I would never wear this, but the idea is really interesting. Learn more below!
Even if this is just a prototype, the implications are insane! Futurecraft 3D (by Adidas) unveiled their first 3D-printed midsole, basically taking personalized products to an entirely different level. Check out the shoe prototype and video clip below! How long until I can just print out my own Yeezys?
Artist Luke Ramsey recently came to Vancouver to paint a little mural in Strathcona. If you wanna go see it, it’s on the side of Savoury Chef’s building (1175 Union St), right on the bike route.
I went out there with a few times during the week, with a little camera, to put together a qiuck edit of the mural process. The words “Joy So Zo Love Yanum” appear abstractly in the mural as a tribute to Luke’s friend who passed away.
