Gen-X Buskers Amp : Mobile Musical Equipment for Street Performers by Nathan McDonald

The problem all musicians have is the transportation of their musical equipment, and it is because of this that you will often see a guitarist (for example) struggling down the street with his/her guitar and case, an amplifier, and a backpack full of other stuff they need (like cables, foot pedals, a microphone and stand, and a drink).

Based on extensive research done by Nathan McDonald, a product designer, he found that buskers (street performers) have two options in the way they perform: they can either play acoustically and strain their voices to be heard, or they can play electrically but have to bring their own power source. The most common power source for this is a car battery, which is just something else to carry, and car batteries are not light! This is where the Gen-X Buskers Amp comes in.

The Gen-X Buskers Amp is an innovation in mobile musical equipment. The Gen-X incorporates a back-pack style design, this is to aid in the transportation of musical equipment, since it is easy to carry and other smaller pieces of equipment can be stored inside the Gen-X’s storage compartment. For increased sound quality the Gen-X has a hard polypropylene shell, but because of this the back panel has to be shaped to fit the spine for comfort. The Gen-X uses 3 oval speakers that have been arranged to create the ‘new face of outdoor performing’.

Although named a ‘buskers amp’ this could in fact be used by any musician on the move. Gen-X Buskers Amp can be used outside, powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery, or indoors powered by an AC adaptor.

“Xylophone Bin”, Musical Bin Concept

“Xylophone Bin” is an amazing creation by Dominic Wilcox designed for Danish Company Vipp’s charity auction event held in New York. It is not an ordinary bin but it plays music. Xylophone bin is made up of oak and steel. When you press the pedal, the lid opens and it releases a ball that travels down a spiral set of xylophone steps around the bin. Whenever that ball touches a step, a note is played and while going down, the note gets lower. It is hard to see such a musical concept and that too for a good cause.

With Pacer Suit, Hear The Music With Every Move of Your Body

Imagine this…for every move you make, you can create a unique sound, cool huh? I bet DJ will love this PACER suit concept. The Pacer suit receives electro impulses that appear when muscles are activated (movement), amplifies them and turns them into sound with the help of the sensors attached to muscles. Each impulse is goes through the sensors via amplifiers (boxes on the back) to control panel where we can control volume, type of sound, select rhythm to follow…With this suit it is possible to produce harmonious rhythm and melody by dancing. These sounds can be heard through headphones connected to the control panel (box on the front) or through the speakers connected to the control panel by infrared rays.

This system is not entirely made for fun as it has enormous stimulating power and it can be quite efficiently used in therapeutic treatments where ever is necessary to stimulate muscle workout and movement of the body as a whole.

MoovBox Portable Synthesizer Allows People to Create/Mix Music Together Anytime, Anywhere

Sony Walkman was the first successful portable audio player. It introduced a change in music listening habits by allowing people to carry music everywhere and listen to it using earphones/headphones. This brings users in a sort of isolation state that initially was Sony Walkman’s main and successful feature, but then it became an obstacle to human interaction, even using new technologies.

MoovBox is a conceptual portable synthesizer that wants to revolutionize music listening experience, making it “active” allowing people to create new music, mixing it during the listening, and produce new tracks without any limit. It has to be used in association with a smarthphone.

Gibson Concept 909 Music Instrument for Digital Performers

Just recently at 2014 Grammy Awards event, Daft Punk celebrated the ascendancy of electric sound and image as declaration of popular expression. It’s cool and crisp sound, this is the era where digital performers replace human sound with unique, synthesized audio constructs. It’s a sudden clearance moment where Gibson realized how new music has left new artists without an instrument to embrace this new role.

Keeping that in mind, Gibson has released its latest project called Concept 909. It’s a progressive instrument for new musicians who used to play the guitar. Make no mistake, the company claims this is not a guitar, this concept instrument works as a human interface that references a set of learned gestures and responses from another period in our musical evolution. It is both a controller and a generator where you can use in your home, studio, or on stage. The 909’s activators can be programmed to deliver amazing sonic responses while maintaining the tactile qualities of strings and frets.

Toby Concept Car by Fulop Gellert

We just got design submission from Fulop Gellert, it’s a concept car called Toby. Yes, the name reminds us to “A Special Story about Toby”, you can read the reason behind this cute name from the designer’s own words below.

The concept cars name is Toby. It might seem a persons name and it is, but I also decided to give it to my concept. This is because I believe it has a personality, not because of it’s deign features, but because of how it became to be.

My inspiration for this concept started from a conversation I had with a friend, who said “why don’t you build a car company yourself ?”. Of course he didn’t know much about running a company of any size, nevertheless I started thinking, how could I start a car company in my own little town?. My town is famous for making good violins and other musical instruments. So I started thinking, using the tools, the craftsmanship, and the experience of our local violin makers, what kind of car I could make. This was how Toby concept car born. However, simply making a car using wood panels and carbon fiber was nothing new. I wanted to show people how ideas were born and how a simple thought can become a story or a dream, which may or may not become reality. To do this, I thought I made a video, a story of how Toby was born.
