BeetBox is a simple instrument that allows users to play drum beats by touching actual beets. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi with a capacitive touch sensor and an audio amplifier in a handmade wooden enclosure. Here's how it works: Inside the cabinet is a Raspberry Pi Model B computer hooked up to an MPR121 capacitive touch sensor. A Python script detects any touches on the beets, and plays drum samples using the pygame gaming module system. The sounds produced are fed to an LM386-based amp and on to a speaker located behind the holes in the wood.
Japanese artist Rie Hosokai designs these elaborate dresses from the inflated balloons. The dresses were produced through a custom type 'knitting' of white balloons to gradually build a fragile, but wearable frock.
The Triumph Speed Racer created by young French graphic designer Benjamin Blanchard of Impoz Design. The bike is a transformation of the classic Triumph Speed Triple. Blanchard worked 12 months on this bike. The Speed Racer Motorbike has been returned to basics by stripping all the extras added to the original. Blanchard removed all headlights, gave the bike a shorter chassis, added rear LED headlights and redefined its silhouette with carbon fiber and a matte black paint job.
