The consumer drone explosion of the last few years has been mostly limited to quadcopter-style multirotors. Until now. Meet the Disco, Parrot’s super-fast drone party in the sky.
By now a lot of people are familiar with that particularly buttery breed of electronic music: French house. Daft Punk is the master of this new disco sound, so much so that a lot of people don't realize that a whole slew of producers and DJs have honed the sound for decades. My favorite? A soft spoken badass named…
What's hot, sweaty, and filled with sexual innuendo? I'm talking about disco—what did you think I was talking about?—but I'm also talking about the design that was created to sell this era of suddenly decadent lifestyles.
I recently started dating a girl. It actually wasn't that recently and now she is my girlfriend. But! Until recently, there was a rift between us, a canyon separating our passions. She loves R&B. I hate R&B. Who knew a skinny, bearded French dude would sweep in to save the day?
Exactly 30 years ago today, the world saw The NeverEnding Story for the first time. It was a time before CGI, when you had to make fantasy movies with puppets. But nothing feels old fashioned about the synth-laden, sunset-colored theme song by Giorgio Moroder. The flying dragon-dog was pretty cool, too.
You have to love the internet. A year ago, Hunter Sanders made this 1990s remake of the Game of Thrones' intro, using Queen's I Want It All for the soundtrack. Then, three days ago, Steve Buzz uploaded an 80's inspired cover of the Game of Thrones main theme. And today, Mikolaj Birek mixed them both. It's so much…
Vsauce's Michael Stevens answers a great question with the help of Yeti Dynamics: What if the moon was a disco ball? The answer is sad: The mirrors' specular surface would make the moon almost invisible. However, things really get groovy if you put the disco moon at the same distance as the International Space Station.
Attention all sophisticated super freaks: this one's for you. Say hello to the Disco Dish, a flashy light fixture from the off-kilter creative mind of Dutch designer Bertjan Pot.
Combining a block-rocking beat, poignant love story, and a hardcore Astroboy Disco vibe—did I mention, it's anime—With You by Australian electronica duo Flight Facilities will have you grooving faster than you can say "Go! Go! Go!"
I'm no techno aficionado. I like bleeps and bloops. Who cares if they're acid house or space jam or whatever? But I can tell you this: "Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat" is amazing. And it's from 1982.
Finally, the City of Light lives up to its name, thanks to artist Michel de Broin's 7.5-meter disco ball suspended 50-meters above the Jardin du Luxembourg. It's even more impressive in action and up close.
For those of you who're into a little bit of creative electronics as well as fancying yourself as a bit of a mean DJ, this DIY laser light show may be just the thing to spice up your parties. Not only will the project spray laser light around (and who doesn't like laser light shows?) but it also reacts to music, so…
The Skinny A CD/DVD player, storage cabinet and amplified speakers in the form of a classic phonograph.
