Some interesting things I found recently:

Tweet A Sound

# Tweet A Sound

Tweet A Sound is a desktop application that uses Twitter as a platform for sharing sonic tweets. Pushing the idea of “social sound design”, Tweet A Sound allows you to design a sound and share it in a community of like-minded folks. It is an opportunity for fun interaction with sound.

The sound engine is based on FM Synthesis and has a waveshaper, a delay, feedback and a flanger. You can get a ton of interesting sounds out of these.

Tweet A Sound was built in Max/MSP and is available for download for Mac. A Windows version should be out soon.

Kacie Kinzer Tweenbots

# tweenbots | kacie kinzer

Kacie Kinzer built some cute robots, set them loose in NYC, and documented the willingness of people to help the bots find their way.

Tweenbots are human-dependent robots that navigate the city with the help of pedestrians they encounter. Rolling at a constant speed, in a straight line, Tweenbots have a destination displayed on a flag, and rely on people they meet to read this flag and to aim them in the right direction to reach their goal.

The new bots look too cute!

Pownce Is Not Twitter, Nor Is It As Important As Twitter

I must admit I’m not with it when it comes new services like Pownce and Twitter, so it’s nice to see Tony Hung (Deep Jive Interests) talk about these in a little more detail.

Twitter and Pownce

Tony writes:

Pownce is an web-based instant messaging system that can be used ex-browser if you download the Adobe Integrated Runtime. Oh. Its wrapped up in a pretty slick package, and you can send group messages. That’s pretty much it.

It shouldn’t be confused with services like Twitter, which are really continuous partial attention services, or something that I’ve described as ambient broadcasting.

Read the article to find out more on how Pownce differs from Twitter.
