Watch Tony Hawk do endless 360s on a hoverboard, Ep. 184
My name is Stephen Beacham, and here's what's happening this week on c net's Crave Blog.
Some musicians see sound in colors and wave.
And others, like New Zealand based musician Nigel Stanford, produce a video that amplifies the visual aspects of sound waves.
Nigel teamed up with director Shahir Daud to produce a music video, which show cases sound waves visually.
Using six different scientific experiments that are known to produce visual sound waves, they set out on a sonic journey to capture these visual sound experiments on video as the band performed the song Cymatics.
Named after the study of visible sound.
The song is part of Stanford's newly released album, Solar Echoes, and was written based on these sonic visualizations.
Each instrument was represented with a different visualization.
For instance, the keyboard uses a Chladni Plate, which is a thin metal plate that vibrates when sound waves run through it, causing patterns to form in sand sprinkled over the surface.
The bass track was represented by a thin dish of vodka placed on the speaker.
The sound coming out of the speaker causes the vodka to ripple and wrinkle, which looks very cool.

A Kickstarter campaign is raising some serious money at a quick pace.
To send a robotic probe to the south pole of the Moon.
Where it will drill into the surface and bury a time capsule.
Now, this sounds like it could get pretty expensive.
Which why they want.
You to pay for it.
Capitalizing on the popularity of the Rosetta mission and the success of the Philae lander, a UK based team, Lunar Missions Ltd., has launched a campaign to send a robotic probe to the surface of the Moon.
Where organizers hope that the robotic lander will have the ability to drill between 20 to 100 meters into the Moon's surface.
In a location where no space mission has explored.
The time capsule is only a small part of the mission because the lander will also study the geology of the moon's rocky layers.
Hopefully, giving scientists on earth more insight into how the moon was formed as well as unlock some secrets about our local solar system.
Backers of the.
Kickstarter campaign during later fundraising phases will have the option to include a digital text message.
Or video to be entombed in a separate, private time capsule.
That will even include strands of human hair.
So your DNA can forever be entombed within the moon.
The Pantelligent intelligent frying pan is a smart frying pan that will turn any terrible cook into a four star chef without the help of a screaming chef Ramsay.
You shouldn't be anywhere near food.
Founder, chef and MIT engineer Humberto Evans designed the frying pan to be so easy to use.
That even the sweetest chef could use it.>>
Okay, I'm out of chef jokes.
Pantelligent is simply a frying pan.
You use it just like a frying pan.
You put it on the stove and cook your food.
What's cool about it is that it contains sensors within the pan.
That sends data to an app on your smartphone or tablet.
Which help guide you through the cooking process.
The Pantelligent app contains a database of.
Foods for you to select before you start your meal.
Let's say we want salmon tonight.
Simply select the salmon and follow the directions.
You can tell the app the size and weight of your piece of salmon, so it can calculate proper heat and cook times that are specific to your portion.
To connect the app to the frying pan, you simply tap the handle and it's paired.
Tell you if the heat is too hot or cold.
And it will even tell you when to flip your piece of meat.
Flip the salmon.
Thank you, Siri.
The app'll send notifications to your phone or smart watch if you get distracted while cooking.
And the best part is that you will never burn or ruin your precious dinner, which is the most important thing.
Eating is good.
I like to eat.
You like to eat.
So why not get smart about it?
