Is this a good advert for the Stylophone Beatbox? I don’t know, but I really enjoyed the video anyway.

CD + Light theremin

Here’s a nice twist on the conventional CD jewel case. With this one you not only get the CD but also a light theremin built into the case as well! What a great idea.

The music is pretty good too, and if you don’t want to go the whole way and get the $50 theremin edition then you can just buy it on iTunes if you like.

Arduino and carbon neutrality

I was reading this post on how Arduino is moving toward carbon neutrality and made me think about how handheld music is more eco friendly than laptop / desktop based computer music.

I’ve posted on this before and I think that there’s something in it. By using handheld tools for music you’re probably making just a bit of a difference to the environment. So there’s another plus for handheld musicians.

I think it’d be great if other hardware manufacturers moved to a similar footing as Arduino have done, but I guess as time goes on consumer pressure will have a hand in this.
