Adidas Augmented Reality

This year, adidas Originals will be dabbling in online interactivity with the introduction of a 3D virtual realm dubbed the adidas Originals Neighborhood. The interactive site allows consumers to play games with the all new ‘Augmented Reality (AR) Game’ Pack by holding the actual products in front of a webcam.

The kicks and apparel from the collection are fitted with a special AR code on the tongue and sleeve which is the key to accessing games like ‘Stormtrooper take down’. The collection consists of five iconic adidas Originals silhouettes and two jackets, with the majority of the gear featuring some really bright block colours.

The adidas Originals Augmented Reality Game Pack will be available at select adidas Originals stockists across South East Asia from February ‘10.

Music Video: Yeah Yeah Yeah's "Skeleton"

iPad wha?

Today marks the official release of Apple's iPad. In layman's terms, the iPad is basically a larger version of the iPod. Sort of like those gigantic calculators you can buy at the dollar store, only these play music. And you can read books on them!

Reviews are varying between an Epic Fail and Apple moving their headquarters to Mount Sinai. On, blogger francisco.e.soto comments: "This is going to completely revolutionize my pooping experience." We agree!

To celebrate this monumental day in technology, we give you a snippet of other objects enlarged for no good reason.

Careful now.

What do you think of the iPad, Musers? Waste of space, or can't wait to own one?

Music Video: The XX "VCR"

I had a serious aversion to this band when it first came out. I think I was just trying to resist any sort of "recession" music. Now I crave it.

Patrick Leung Dark Matters ‘NGA4′ Resin Characters

Here we have the tooth-shaped ‘NGA4′ resin figure designed by Paddy Leung of Dark Matters. Based in Toronto, Dark Matters is a designer toy collective founded with the intention of putting Toronto on the toy map. Standing at just under 3-inches tall, the NGA4 is hand-cast in polyurethane resin and then hand-painted by Leung. Each of the 30 figures features a laser-cut number that denotes its place in the series.

Portable iPhone party

No bigger than a credit card and as thick as a blister pack of chewing gum, the Card Speaker puts most every mp3 accessory to shame with its good looks and crisp fidelity. Designed by IDEA International, this little speaker is ideally suited for trips to the park, the beach, or anywhere you’d like to share a little music on the fly. It comes in either black or silver, with a mirror-polished back, and includes a protective carrying case, a 3.5 mm connection plug, and a USB battery charge cable. The speaker has an operating time of approximately five hours on a two-hour charge.

I'm often found in a place that is in dire need of music, but stuck with no speakers. I wonder how this bad boy sounds. It's on the Ghostly International store for $75.00 and I would trust anything that those guys rep.


Henry Laufer is a fresh faced lanky 19 year old from LA. He's producing some amazing lo-fi dubsteppy, trip hoppy, 8-bitty, music. I'm kinda obsessed.

We look after your ass-ets

It's an emotional day here at Tattoo Sound + Music. We've got new couches!
To celebrate, we brought in actor extraordinaire JAMIE WATSON! He may have just been here for a session, his session may have accidentally coincided with our couch delivery, we may have made him wait on a kitchen stool until the couches were put into place, but he's HERE and ready to sit.


Smellin' fiiiiiiiiiiine.

Fun with friends!

Fun when you have no friends.

Come sit with us!
