2012: What Brought Us Together

“It was a year of breakthroughs, adversity, accomplishments. And the web shared all of it. From the highest sky-dive to the fastest running man, a first vote or last mission, joys and tragedies, grumpy cats and flash mobs, from silly to serious; whatever it is that we shared in 2012, here is a compilation.”
Very cool. I love these year-end compilations.

“‘Whirled Beat’. Boy (age 10) exploring the rhythmic sounds of the washing machine, ala Stomp style!”
I imagine any more than 4 minutes might begin to be annoying but the kid’s got rhythm, no question.

“An interactive media installation created in collaboration with Mike Allison. A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into and create fire-like visuals and expressively play music.”
Very cool.
How long until the public could buy versions of this for display at parties, etc.?
