Re: Sound Bottle captures ambient noise and remixes it into unique, unexpected tracks. The bottle’s cork interface controls when it both records and plays back the sounds it captured — a fun use of technology to enhance the soundtrack of everyday life.

Roof-mounted sensors translate light, rain, wind and thunder inputs to generate an impromptu musical score.
Drawing its sounds directly from the elements, no day’s synthesizer-style music is the same — who knew lightning could sound like reverb and that moonlight purrs?

There’s a new solution to a dead phone battery, and you can wear it on your body! That is, if you happen to be at a concert. And also have this crazy weird shirt. But the idea of using live sound waves to charge your phone — in this case, with the Orange Sound Charge T-Shirt — is fun, if a little impractical.

Facebook is partnering with Spotify to add music streaming to the site. While I’ve never actually missed the ability to play music within Facebook, I wonder if we’ll collectively have a “how have we lived without this” moment in a few weeks.
Listening to music with friends within Facebook already sounds like what turntable.fm offers but with a much larger audience. Depending on how many friends you have, that could be good or bad. It will be an interesting social experience nonetheless.

Who doesn’t like Bjork?
Our friends at Jam3 http://www.jam3media.com/ who showed off their new site (coming soon) at FITC (its pretty insane) have been busy working with Bjork on her new site which just launched http://bjork.com/.
Its the first phase of her Biophilia project and it will continue growing over time.
HTML5 and they made their own 3D engine to parse the info coming out of Google Sketchup where it was designed by the Parisian artists M/M.
Editor’s Note: This is an excellent use and example of HTML5 + 3D being used in a site. HTML5 works on mobile and iPad as opposed to Flash, which does not work on i-anything-mobile.

Ever since we’ve seen the extinction of analog audio formats, we’ve been spending time and energy reminiscing and attempting to replicate the look and feel of the classic turntable. There have been tons of projects that will take your MP3s and filter their audio to sound more like the cassette tape or record you remember listening to as a kid and, this blog has covered a great deal of them. The fad isn’t going away anytime soon and if you’ve been keeping up, most recently a project, turntable.fm has been growing out of control (it’s a ton of fun and you should try it out).
