Future Technology: DJ Qbert’s Extraterrestria is World’s First Interactive Album Packaging [VIDEO]

Novalia-PrintedMIDIDJQBert2

Extraterrestria is DJ Qbert’s long-awaited follow up to his groundbreaking debut album, Wave Twisters (2001), and it features a pretty next level album cover. The printed cover is actually a set of functional Bluetooth MIDI decks and DJ controller that connects to iOS and OSX, making it the world’s first interactive album packaging.

QBert’s company Thud Rumble collaborated with Algoriddim and Novalia to create an album cover that allows fans to manipulate the album (or any mp3s) by moving their fingers along the surface. Apparently most of the copies will be going to those that funded the project on Kickstarter, with a small number made available through Thud Rumble.

Watch the video below to see it in action!

Burning Man 2014 is beginning right now in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. I’d heard that the festival had grown exponentially in recent years, but I had no clue it was this insane.

Vimeo user Roy Two Thousand has compiled a bunch of incredible time-lapse footage from last year’s festival that you have to see to believe.

Watch “Lake Of Dreams” below!

Pow! Wow! Hawaii Video by Werehaus

Friendly dudes outta San Fran, from a studio called Werehaus, put together a bunch of candid footage from their time at Pow! Wow! Hawaii. Kinda hard to tell what’s happening in most of the video as there’s a lot of random footage and no names/titles on screen, but you do get to see some artists and walls I haven’t featured.

My only complaint is that we don’t get to see Andrew Schoultz skateboard in front of everyone’s murals (just his own). Watch the video below.
