Old-school video games fans, prepare yourselves! Analogue Nt is a modern Nintendo Entertainment System constructed from a solid block of aluminum. It will play any original NES and Famicon cartridges and connect to any original controllers because it’s built on the same cpu and made of the original Nintendo hardware.
Before you get too excited it should be noted the Nt might run you more than the cost of a PS4, with a price tag of $499 plus $79 if you want the HDMI upgrade to see every crystal clear pixel of Mario upscaled to 1080p. This is definitely targeted at a very special kind of nerd. More images below!
How does one build a clock that will last 10,000 years? Well, “the golden boy of MIT” Danny Hillis and his team of engineers/generational thinkers have some answers. In fact, The Clock of the Long Now is already under construction and is set to be placed in the West Texas mountains. English musician, Brian Eno, has helped with a 10 bell arrangement that will chime a different sequence each day for 10,000 years.
Aside from those technicalities though, the project addresses larger questions about the world and our place in it. Especially in light of recent events, this project demonstrates a refreshing optimism toward the future and celebration of our capacity to take on the most insurmountable problems. Watch the short video portrait below!
Great portrait of artist Doze Green by my buddy, Detroit-based filmmaker, Mike Popso. I’ve been a fan of Doze for a long time; his artwork was the reason I blind-bought albums like Deeper Concentration 2 in high school. A lot has changed since then! For the last five years he’s been living and working on a self-sufficient farm in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
In “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate,” Popso captures the vibrancy of Green’s new life and new work. His upcoming show at the Openspace gallery in Paris opens November 20th and runs until December 20th. Watch the video profile below!
Sweet yet not so simple music video for Brooklyn band, Total Makeover’s synth-laden track. Directed by Phillip Van, “Self Destructive” is a kind of classic boy-meets-girl narrative. Only this time around it’s more like boys-meet-girls as our love-struck hero literally fights with other versions of himself upon meeting the girl(s) of his dreams. Watch below!
