Ohhhhhh baby oh baby, do I have a treat for you. While Volume 5 was undoubtedly a good time, by no means did it deplete the turnup. So I’m bringing you another week of high-quality, hi-fi electroswing in living technicolor. So go find the loudest speaker system in the near vicinity and let’s get it poppin’.
WARNING: This mix contains bangers from the finest artists in the world including Stavroz, Extra Medium, Gramophonedzie, Parov Stelar, The Swing Bot, Swing Republic, Nuno Endo, Jamie Berry, and other legends of sophistication. All mixed live by NYC’s Electroswing DJ, yours truly, The Electric Gentleman.
Gramatk - Hit That Jive. Classic.
I have ideas for art, but I can’t execute them. And I don’t know artists who could get the job done. So I need…
Online marketplace for art commissions.
After I came up with this idea, I researched and found EveryArt, a Y-combinator backed startup who is/was doing the same thing. They’ve been quiet on their social channels though so not sure if the lights are still on.
Electro-Swing remix of a classic.
I enjoy cooking, but I hate planning my meals + grocery shopping. Here’s my dream cooking app…
This is a really important step in the 3rd printer revolution. I am amazed to think we will have a Star Trek style replicator at a price which everyone can afford it in the next decade (well, at least for plastic items).
Today MakerBot introduced what’s basically a Xerox machine for physical items: the Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner. It’ll make 3D-printing at home a lot easier, but that doesn’t mean it’ll make it cheaper. Related
We saw it teased back in March at SXSW, but this is the first time the Digitizer has been available. As a refresher, it scans an object with a camera and a pair of lasers, and instantly renders you a 3D design that can be used to make your object, no technical know-how required. The machine costs $1,400 and is available for pre-order now, shipping in the middle of October.
Of course, you need a Replicator to go with it. But it takes out the 3D printing middleman in an important way. Need a spare part? No need to send off for it, you can just scan it and then print it on your machine. You don’t need any kind of CAD or design experience.
This machine is definitely one way to make 3D printing more democratic. Now anyone can reproduce anything as long as it fits the Digitizer’s size constraints (less than eight inches in diameter, less than eight inches tall, and under 6.6 pounds).
