DJI, maybe THE dronemaker made a huge announce today. They already took a big leap with the ultra-portable Mavic, which took fan hearts in a second, and this was not long ago. But today, they announced not one, but two big steps in their done history.
DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO
Steady evolution is what stands behind the Phantom series. It comes with a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor and an updated obstacle sensing which will keep this gadget alive even if you are not the pilot it takes 😉 Allover improvements, check the specs here.
DJI INSPIRE 2
Aaaand there it is, the new supermodel of drone filming for professionals: The Inspire 2. This carbon beast is made for performance: A speed up to 67 mph (108 kph or 30 m/s in non-retard) with the top-of the notch obstacle detection, new multi-sensor based steady-modes… hell, it will even find an alternative way home when you call it! Check it out:
This is for the real nerds! Don’t ever trust statistics that you haven’t falsified yourself. Everybody knows that. And most evidence in stochastics is based on data on which you have to find out the correlation. But if you see the raw data, can you guess the correlation?
This little online game with very lovely retro graphics and retro sound is much more fun then you would expect! Give it a try:
OK, there we go: My Dad just digitalised d his CD-Collection! (OK OK, CDs are digital, but the CD itself is still quite „material“ and therefore “analoge”…) I was fucking impressed. And not only that: He planned to sort out the CD racks behind his beautiful Accuphase amplifier and put the iPad there instead. All without asking me, or having any trouble at all… I mean, my dad is almost 70 years old! And usually, he asks for weird obvious shit when it comes to computers. Big up dad! That was a cool move!
And how Apple f*c³d! him
The only problem he had was that iTunes didn’t let him copy the music to his iPad. I was quite sure it was a common mistake he made. But actually it is like: Apple doesn’t allow you to copy your media to more than one device. Let that settle. Seriously: You have to pay if you want to listen to your media on both your iPad and iPod. WTF?
So we decided to get a cheap Android tablet and to test if the setup works like that. And, not knowing if this will be the final configuration, I decided to buy a budget tablet from China to test this idea, and so I ordered the Teclast X10 Tablet for 90 Euros from Gearbest. Pretty amazing you can get a decent looking 10” tablet for less then 100 bucks. But I don’t know what kind of quality we’ll get here…
Von Kompakt Extra habe ich schon lange nicht mehr (oder nur sporadisch wieder) was gehört im Gegensatz zu den 2000ern. Aber diese Scheibe hier von Patrick Bäumel werde ich wohl lange nicht vergessen. Epische Synthy-Bass-Flächen fein getimed in Drums erschaffen eine volle Atomsphäre während der sich der Track aufbaut, und zum Schluss gibt’s auch noch mal mit Hi-Hat Gewitter ordentlich eins auf die Fresse. Ganz schön Opulent und ganz schön geil.
In the eastern parts of Germany (Ex-DDR), a roast chicken is called a „broiler“ and was the luxury Sunday meal. Now I found out that the term is also known in English speaking countries, and after a friend* deliberately misspelled the well known Techno video show Boiler Room as „Broiler Room“ I knew I had to make a logo with that =)
I love when people have an piece of art on their walls. A piece of art they really like. That they look at for huge amounts of time, just to warship it.
I by myself am a little different. My muse of art is listening. At a lazy Sunday evening, when you kind of shake off the craziness from the weekend and find yourself in front of your excellent stereo. You put a track on which means something special, something like sonic art for you. Sit on your sofa with your eyes closed. Listening, no – not listening… feeling what the artist is telling you through the speakers spreading divine emotions inside your ears to your brain…
Some people claim that a low level of unstructured noise (like in a coffeeshop or in the woods) is better for concentrating then total silence. I think I can agree with that. So here are some sources for these kinds of ambience sounds:
