This quite possibly could one of the most exciting and innovative technologies to come out within the last few years for aspiring and established DJs and producers. The opportunity to create new music while paying tribute to artist samples without the headache of third party clearance was something unheard of until now. Co-founded in 2010 by Omid McDonald, investors from the Purple Angel, Ontario Emerging Technology Fund and a team of engineers and scientists have created Legitmix, a revolutionary new beta platform that enables remixers to sell and share their work without going through the traditional sample-clearance process, while still ensuring sampled artists get paid.

Apple Touchbook1

We were pretty amazed when Apple launched the iPhone back in 2007. They always seem to have a knack for releasing new technology that you can’t seem to live without (or so you think). You ultimately end up turning into an obsessed tech geek fixated on always needing to check your hand held device. Well it seems that the technology community is buzzing once again. The rumor mill has it that Apple will be producing a new 9.7 inch touchscreen tablet, set to debut starting this holiday 2009/10 shopping season, and will retail for the mere price of $800. According to the Mandarin newspaper The China Times (with a rought English translation), they have apparently sourced rumors from several of Apple’s supply chain partners, including: Dynapack, Foxconn, and Wintek who have all received orders from Apple. Fact or fiction- you be the judge, its keeping us intrigued.

ADIDAS LAUNCHES "URBAN ART GUIDE"

March 29th, 2009 | adminTech |  | 1 Comment

AdidasArtGuide

Many of our R.A.W. readers know the fondness we have for Germany. Aside from having some of the illest beats and Bboys, this is just another good reason to add to our ever growing list. For those of us that are domestically bound, we can only hope that this user friendly application will catch on to be a worldwide movement…or at least in New York (hint, hint)

Adidas celebrated the launch of the highly anticipated Urban Art Guide this past March 20th, by hosting a media bash held at Hotel in Berlin, a night club set to officially open its doors this summer 2009. Based out of Berlin, the new mobile art guide is a free download via Itunes for iPhone users. For those that enjoy getting visually stimulated while keeping stride in the urban jungle, art connoisseurs can now have the best of both worlds with a hands on guide using the new application to visit various pieces of art through out the city streets. From known museums and galleries to hidden nooks and corridors, this new guide covers it all.

To learn more and get your FREE Adidas Urban Art Guide visit the iTunes Store. Otherwise take a virtual tour with the short video tutorial below.

MEDIA INFORMATION:
Adidas Urban Art Guide

The city is a gallery. The adidas Urban Art Guide is the catalog. When Urban Art entered the scene, art left the galleries. Their characters populate the whole urban landscape. Especially in a young and international city like Berlin they follows us at every turn like a second population. But who captures them, organizes and comments this highly dynamic art which constantly re-invents and erases itself? The adidas Urban Art Guide provides for the art on the street what a catalog provides for art in the galleries – a reliable guide which opens eyes, sharpens the understanding and intensifies the fun in Urban Art.

The Urban Art Guide editorial staff is based in Berlin. The city simply forces us to develop excitement for paintings on walls. And curiosity: Who are these artists, how are they linked, what kind of styles develop? Being that curious the idea of the Urban Art Guide came up. A project is needed that specifically answers questions – right on the spot. The adidas Urban Art Guide sends an article for each artwork that you are standing in front of directly to your iPhone. The article gives information on the artist, the artwork and references.

In close cooperation with Urban Artists but also with classical art historians not only a catalog is created but also an extensive and permanently updated Urban Art archive. The fast-paced and short-lived Urban Art is met with the consistency of the Urban Art Guide articles. Long after artworks have perished from walls, are weathered or wantonly erased, they are still documented on the Urban Art Guide website. The guide doesn’t only show the present condition of Urban Art, it also records its history.

The adidas Urban Art Guide counts on interaction in order to meet the fast-paced changes of Urban Art. You have seen a new artwork? Take a picture and send it to the Urban Art Guide. The editorial staff checks it. Because the adidas Urban Art Guide doesn’t only react quickly and flexibly, it also counts on maximum reliability – and all-time ready to go.
