Conductor: by Alexander Chen

Brooklyn based Interactive designer and musician, Alexander Chen has created this great project, called Conductor, where he takes live information from the MTA, visualizes the path of each train and assigns a musical note every time two trains cross paths; all through HTML5 and Javascript. The result, a wonderfully zen like soundtrack that is pretty much the antithesis of what its actually like to ride the train most of the time. Beautiful.

Found this great video produced by The Office of Charles Eames for Herman Miller showcasing the production of the classic Shell Chair from start to finish. The music itself is worth the watch, quintessential Eames. Nice!

Der Mensch als Industriepalast

I’ve always loved Fritz Kahn’s ever so German way of looking at human anatomy though his body machines lithographs, Der Mensch Als Industriepalast being one of my favorites of course.

Air traffic and volcanos don’t mix well

This is crazy, I had heard that last months Eyjafjallajokull eruption caused some flight delays but I didn’t realize the extent until now. Though, I’m not sure which is crazier, seeing a total lack of flights through out a big chunk of Europe or the insane amount of flights that actually go on when things are normal.

Apollo 11 launch @ 500 fps… um, awesome!

Back in ’69 when the Apollo 11 crew decided it would be a good time to go to that big rock in the sky, someone down on the ground had the excellent idea to film the rocket boosters doing their thing upclose at 500 frames per second… My nerd senses are tingling!

New inkjet color… Skin.

OK… This is weird! The US Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine have developed a way to take an ordinary ink-jet printer (in this case an HP) and use to to literally print skin cells on to a burn patient. As Keanu says… Whoa!

Earlier this year, LabTV spoke to one of the researchers who’s working on the project. Hopefully the technology gets in to civilian hands sooner than later. Check out the video…
