We can all see how technology is changing our lives (for better or for worse—I’m looking at you, trolls), but for some reason the music world has been slow on the uptake; songs addressing technology are few and far between.
Erika M. Anderson, better known by her stage name EMA, is changing that with her new album The Future’s Void. Clash Music (clashmusic.com) has described her work as both “genre-busting” and ... Read More

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, oh my! SO MUCH SOCIAL MEDIA DEDICATED TO BABIES! I don’t know about you, but if I see one more baby picture on my newsfeed I might just go crazy. For some reason, mothers feel the need to document EVERY LITTLE THING that their precious little larvae humans do (clearly, I’m the motherly type). “Today little Johnny ate mashed potatoes- everyone must be alerted immediately!” * long exasperated ...

New technology to battle technological dependence? Makes sense.
When I had a Smartphone I was prone to constantly checking my various apps out of fear that I would miss something that was happening. In fact, it is so easy to be sucked into a world of notifications and constant streams of information that people tend to tune the real world out completely.

Grace Choi wants you to have makeup that grows up with you, that you design and create yourself. It's like having your own personal M.A.C. boutique right in your bedroom.
In the video of her demo at TechCrunch Disrupt, she's flippant, wise, savvy, speaking off the cuff--basically, the kind of woman you'd buy makeup from.
I can imagine myself hobbling away from her makeup counter with an armful of product, but remember this is the 21st century: at ... Read More

What can 3d printing do? Prepare to have your mind blown.
1) 3D DIY Sex Toys
(Via: New York Toy Collective)
That's right, you can print highly personalized sex toys in the comfort of your own home. This is not a drill. I am convinced that this is why 3D printing was created. The technology is almost in place to allow anyone to print body-safe pleasure objects. This is what the future looks like, people.

Victoria Seimer, a Brooklyn-based graphic designer, posts her stunning work on tumblr under the name Wichoria. All of her work is phenomenal, but her weekly series entitled, “Human Error” is what first caught my eye. In this digital day and age, everyone is familiar with the layout of computer pop-ups, such as error messages and repeated reminders, which is partly what makes this series so powerful. What if error messages just popped up in real ... Read More

As if taking normal iPhone pictures of strangers was not invasive enough, the “Peek- I” takes voyeurism to a whole new level. No one is fooled into believing that “Spy Cam Peek-I” is for taking pictures “discretely at a 90 degree angle” for the sake of being the next James Bond…which is the current sell featured on the gadget’s Indigogo campaign.
Peek- I--which has not only graced the ... Read More
