If you’ve ever seen Disney’s The Lion King on Broadway, you’re already quite aware that it’s a 360-experience in itself. But now you can get even closer to the magic from a centre stage view that’ll have you feeling like it’s the first time again.
If you use Tumblr or Facebook or Twitter or any site like that, you'd know that they're all complete time sucks. Hopping onto Tumblr is especially dangerous because of all the rabbit holes you can crawl into—food, tasteful nudes, fashion, tasteful nudes, animated gifs, tasteful nudes, virally reblogged reblogs and…
These macro photographies taken from the interior of actual music instruments make my head spin a bit. I would have never imagined the interior of musical instrument would look so beautiful and cozy. I would love to live in that violin.The interior of a flute. The interior of an organ.
If Spider-Man: The Musical taught us anything, it's that you can never have too many airbags on hand. For their new Vegas show, Cirque du Soleil is using the largest one of its kind.
When technology and music collide, great things happen. Take, for example, FlashHarp, an Etsy creation that merges a harmonica with a USB flash drive.
My goodness, is there anything more joyless than a social media conference? Well, okay, probably yes if you're the type of person to take things hyper-literally. But!

Strings? Nope. Frets? Not really. The Misa Digital Guitar, an open source, Linux-powered MIDI controller, brings shredding to the 21st century by dumping traditional guitar strings for buttons and a futuristic touch screen.
What looks kinda creepy actually sounds quite cool. The Concert Hands system teaches you piano (or keyboard) using a 10-finger feedback system that gently pulses when you should play, coupled with an automated wrist pilot that guides you across octaves.
Take a peek at this insane clarinet mod, which causes the instrument to drop its musical roots in favor of something a bit more offensive. Unfortunately, there isn't an awful lot of information to go on, but the device clearly looks like an artwork installation, meaning it probably isn't going to be firing rounds of…
Guitar players, you'll love this little Tascam MP-GT1 Portable Memory Guitar Trainer, an MP3 player that's also ideal for some serious woodshedding. You can plug in your ax and play along with up to 240 songs you can store on it, slowing down the music so you can play along. Hey, now you can learn new licks at your…
While Cher, Britney, and Kid Rock have twiddled the Vocoder in their day, Kraftwerk was probably the first band to really remind us of the techno-hell we're descending into by opened Autobahn with the magic of a voice distorted with custom electronics.
