Acid Defender

Acid Defender is a really cool concept game/Audio experiement. Its a synthesizer which a note for each column with the tone depending on where the white box is. Only there are little red “bullets” that fly into the screen and you have to move the notes to dodge them, because if one of the bullets hits a note you lose that beat.

In doing so you change the music, creating a continually changing piece of digital music, and a fun but stressful game.

I’ve only played this on a browser and the site says it only works in Chrome, but I think I game like this would come into it’s own on a tablet PC (iPad,Android whatever).

There is also a “Jam Mode” which allows you to just make music.

Perfect Grab Bag For Zombie Collapse of Civilization

mainImg

Or you know a Zombie apocalypse… This little bag available in khaki or yellow is printed on demand by CafePress.co.uk or CafePress.com put all the things you need to survive the collapse of civilization as we know it, you know like hand cream, soap and nail clippers…

It’s a little small I’d maybe like if on a messenger bag, I think it’s meant to hold a tablet PC/iPad or netbook rather than tools that will help you survive the impending end of civilization…

On an unrelated note I discovered that changing the .com to .co.uk on cafe press gives you the same product but available in the UK which is refreshing. I guess that’s one thing that’s nice about print on demand stuff rather than specially manufactured things.

On another unrelated note here is a picture of a dodo…
