Stopped by the ‘City as Canvas’/Martin Wong Collection at the Museum of the City of New York. Great show that featured the work of legends like Dondi, Futura, Lady Pink and Keith Haring. A good one room show, but Martin Wong’s collection is supposedly deep, would have loved to have seen more.

Almost a year ago the Impossible Project debuted the Instant Lab on Kickstarter. We saw it and couldn’t throw our credit card at the screen quick enough. Initially promised for February, delivery was delayed as is often the case when going from prototype to mass production. Our Instant Lab arrived on Friday, here are some sample shots.
We haven’t bothered to read the instructions (“Christmas in August” anyone?) but are stoked so far. The iOS app interface is clean and doesn’t get in your way. All of our prints were on Impossible PX 680, looking forward to tweaking exposure times, film types and finally reading the instruction manual.

Urbanears Scratch Poster takes the love of vinyl and scratching to the masses! Ok maybe just the masses of Copenhagen. The interactive analog sound poster was recently plastered around Copenhagen and continues Urbanears assault on mobile mixing. And extends the idea of the Slussen that you can get in the mix anywhere.
A quick preview of some new iPhone 5 cases that will be dropping this summer from Incase.
Olloclip has just released the Olloclip app which corrects the optical distortion that the 3 in 1 lens system (fisheye, wide-angle and macro lenses) can make when you take a photo.

When we first heard of the Slussen DJ app + adapter from Urbanears, we thought ok, it’s a thingamajiggy from the cool Swedes. We love thingamajiggies, but how does it work?
