Happy Friday!

We made it! Phew.

I dunno about you, but I definitely need a weekend this week.

Let’s begin…

The New Bar where AI Robot makes alcohol @Ikebukuro Japan YOROH no Taki

Order and get a printed QR code.

Put the code in the “bartender’s” scanner.

Watch as it rapidly mixes or pours your drink.

It includes a tablet that produces facial expressions and engages in small talk while mixing the drink.

Created by QBIT Robotics.

Reuters reported on this here.

Music Synchronized Roller Coaster (Front Seat POV)

“I’ve synchronized Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture to the full length of a Roller Coaster. The coaster twists and turns with the music, as well as triggering special effects that match the beat.”

A CG creation from DoodleChaos who has been featured here before — and has also used Tchaikovsky’s music in his previous videos.

Tessa Violet – I Like (the idea of) You

“The music video for Tessa Violet’s single I Like (the idea) Of You. a dancing homage to Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'”, released in February 1966. We stan.”

This is delightful, and very technically choreographed.

Creep by Radiohead but Using Google Autocomplete Results for Lyrics

“When are we going to Mars / Could you not meme / You’re just like your father / Your skin isn’t paper…”

Ssssort of funny.

It reminds me – conceptually – of the iOs Autocomplete Song (from 2014.) (Also previously featured here.)

Still fun!

Well have a happy Friday and an excellent weekend everybody.

See you on Friday!
