Ohm Force Cohmpost

Ohm Force has released Mac Audio Unit and VST versions of Cohmpost, a freeware FSU type plug-in previously available for Windows only.

From the Ohm Force blog:

You just NEED some Cohmpost in your music. Get it in AU for Mac, VST for Mac or VST for Windows. For your information, no kittens were harmed while creating the Cohmpost (just a bit ruffled, promise). Lawyer warning : Please do not use Ohm Force Cohmpost Mac version unless you totally agree with the license agreement. Waiting for your tunes made with, send us the links and we’ll post it here…

Not the most useful plug-in in the world, but good fun anyway.

Some interesting things I found on April 25th, 2008:

# KlangStufen – „KlangStufen“ is an experiment to show, how much information you can get from the sound of a city. You can experience the urban space auditivly by mounting the different height levels of a city, which would not be possible in the real space at all. You should concentrate completely on the sounds, the visual remains in the background.

KlangStufen (Sound Steps) installation by Christiane Keller

A stair makes the different height levels conceivable to the user. The single steps correspond to the different height levels. So we can use the existing architecture to experience the urban space and to get information about it. The user selects his point of view in the city on a map projected on the wall. Now from this point you move along the y-axis upwards or downwards, depending on which step one is standing.

# Audio Ping Pong – Mike McCracken has a fun little project using an arduino, headphones and an accellerometer.

# Kids Be Gone – Mosquito Device – Are gatherings of teenagers and young adults affecting your business and your profits?
The Mosquito ultrasonic teenage deterrent is the solution to the eternal problem of unwanted gatherings of youths and teenagers in shopping malls and around shops.

# Tristram Cary, Tape Music Pioneer, VCS3 Designer, Composer, Dies – Tristram is credited by some as the father of tape music, originating tape music techniques in World War II. He’s notorious to the general public and sci fi fans as the composer of the music for the Daleks in Doctor Who.

# Puzzlemation – A Dynamic Tiled Display – Puzzlemation divides the digital display into pixels you're free to pick up and re-arrange. It can be used to create things as diverse as modular animated signs, to a uniquely challenging dynamic puzzle.

# LoFi Looping Tape Machine – xelent modified a bedside table alarm clock with a tape recorder into a lofi loop recorder.

  • HOWTO Hack Your Guitar Hero Whammy Bar – The idea of this hack is to enable the controller with an “auto” mode that simulates the constant jostling of the whammy bar at all times, maximizing the points accumulated while playing.

Is the world flat or round?

Flat World?

Have you ever had someone ask you a simple question, and you find out you’ve never really thought about that particular issue and don’t really know the answer?

One of the co-hosts of The View, Sherri Sheppherd, said she didn’t believe in evolution so co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked her if she believed the world was flat or round.

The video here, including a partial transcript.

Crazy, you’d think something like this is common knowledge.
