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?

Another Chrome experiment from Google, All Is Not Lost features the band OK Go and members of the dance troupe Pilobolus. Filmed from below a glass floor, bodies move and press against the glass (in seafoam green unitards, no less) to form kaleidoscopic shapes and your personalized inspirational message to Japan.
The online video was first shot in 3D and made possible by HTML5 — hence Google’s connection and endorsement of Chrome as the preferred browser. While it kind of feels like it could have been cooler, the video is reminiscent of the captivating, multi-window viewing experiences of the Wilderness Downtown and Soul-Mirror.

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.
