Prince Paul, Hank Shocklee, And Tom Silverman Speak On How Tracklib Provides Freedom At The Fingertips Of Producers And Artists (Video)

Now that’s how we start a discussion about sampling… with that “Impeach The President” joint! But on to the business: Sampling is at the heart of Hip-Hop, and by extension, the Hip-Hop business. But biz of bringing out hot Hip-Hop music can be slowed or obliterated by the expense and arduousness of clearing samples. Enter Tracklib.

Tracklib is a music marketplace where music producers discover, buy and license original recordings. Prince Paul, Hank Shocklee, and Tom Silverman explain.

This is big. And necessary! Watch right quick and learn.

Up And Coming Dancer/Choreographer ShirJuanda ‘Bounce’ Woodson Debuts Her HoverKicks Ad (Video)

Wow! Have you been keeping up with ShirJuanda ‘Bounce’ Woodson? So beautiful. So talented. And her grind… how can someone start from the bottom, get it out the mud, and look so clean every step of the way? I will post a couple more vids (including a behind-the-scenes for the one above) after the jump to initiate those who don’t know and allow those who do to celebrate. Watch and realize that HoverKicks is just now recognizing what many already know… Bounce is the BUSINESS!

After creating her viral ’90s video to Boyz 2 Men’s hit “Motown Philly,” Bounce was discovered by Hoverkicks and asked to create their newest commercial for their famous light-up shoes line!!!
– HoverKicks

I feel very fortunate to have gotten in on her ‘friend wave’ before she can accept no more. We’ll hear more from Bounce to be sure. But for now, let’s salute to her success for just a sec.

(Time’s up! Bounce is already on the move to the next project. Trust.)

Technology: Nissan Introduces The LEAF EV, With ProPilot Driver Assist (Video)

Not bad, Nissan. Not bad! The LEAF EV will bring ProPilot driver assist to the North American and European markets, meaning a driver can shift many of the burdens of a boring drive to the car with the push of a button. Steering, braking, acceleration, and the LEAF will truly help you stay in your lane while taking the freeway to work and back home… or on that nothing-happening stretch of road you travel on the way to (or back from) summer vacay.

Push play and get a look at some good tech. Smartcars are getting smarter!

Coming Soon: The MSC WorldClass Fleet, The Largest Ocean Cruise Ships Ever (Video)

Insane! This is like the Titanic launch on steroids. Three times the size and almost as much worldwide fanfare. When MSC Cruises’ World Class fleet of super duper sized oceanliners are built (scheduled debut in 2022), they will measure a 1,082 feet by 154 feet. The ships will be able to spend more time at sea without having to refuel, have more amenities aboard, and house more guests than any cruiseliner on the waters now.

Recreation: 5 Amazing Toys For Grown Men (Video)

Because I am not playing with y’all… I have started (re)collecting the Transformers toys of my youth. Living the dream! I am trying to get the original G1 Autobots (all 18, including big rig Optimus Prime) and original G1 Decepticons (all 10, including the ‘ugly gun’ version of Megatron).

So that’s out there. Get at me on here or on Twitter if you have a lead to buy outright for the CHEAP! Used is more than okay. I’m not looking for collector’s or mint edition. I’m gonna play with mine… PAUSE!

(Wait, is it noon yet? Because all ‘pause’ is off for the nooner. Just saying.)

Alright. In case my tastes are a bit too nerdcore for you, here’s a more ‘hip’ list of cool toys for grown-ups: Manuka Gyroscope, Bottle Rocket Launcher, UGears Models, The ForeverSpin, and Delorean Time Machine. The video above gives us the skinny on some phat fun stuff.

(Did I use ‘phat’ right? Been a while. Plus, I’m a nerd; and I’m pretty proud of it #RevengeOfTheNerds)

Technology: Bill Gates Is Backing Cranfield University’s Waterless Toilet Concept (Video)

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is going hard for ‘the toilet of the future’… still. We posted on a prototype the Foundation backed in 2012 on here.

And now this…

In developing countries, access to public utilities like running water and sewer systems are often not available. The lack of those resources leads to unsanitary conditions that can put people’s lives at risk. Researchers at Cranfield University hope to put an end to that with the waterless Nano Membrane Toilet. The design has so much potential to change lives that it’s been backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

A Cool, Modern, High-Tech Cassette Player? Yes! Check Out The ‘Elbow’ (Video)

Are you kidding?!! The crazy ad that ends up making mad sense! Do you know anything about this Elbow cassette player? Well, the concept looks incredible! They really might ‘raise the cassette tape culture’ (per their web page tagline).

Elbow is a new cassette player design concept, dedicated to restoring the glory of a cassette tape. Currently in prototype stage. Elbow has been conceived and designed by audiovisual art organisation BrainMonk.

VERY cool tech. VERY cool gadgetry. Score for both all in one! Hope y’all heads have not thrown out all your cassettes yet.

Technology: Walking Boat Ramp (Video)

Okay, so I will admit that when I stumbled across “Walking boat ramp gets you to shore without getting wet” as a YouTube title… I was thinking that this would involve some mega-robo-tech that would let passengers board and ‘walk them out’ to a boat; like Godzilla going back out to sea after a monster fight.

No… I do not smoke… anything.

Hard Drive Marine made this walking boat. Its landing gates unfold and pull the craft to shore so you don’t have to go in the water.
– Tech Insider

Really cool. But you KNOW that sh!t would have been epic as I imagined it! Some of you would have booked a boat trip just to ride out on the MechaDockZilla (like MechaGodzilla, just made that up off the movie name, and you LOVE the name… or you’re a hater LOL)!

Look, Up In The Sky… It’s The Kitty Hawk Flyer!

Maaaan what is it with all these flying car joints as of late?

The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes.

Technology: All-Electric Flying Car (Video)

Yes. We have posted on flying car tech, but this car right here ninja… this looks straight outta Star Wars… Trek… GI Joe! True vertical take-off and landing in a sleek design. Usually, we’d expect this to be a military thing for some time before it becomes a civilian product for consumption. But naaaaah son. LOOK at WHERE they are demoing this; right on the roadway!

Flying cars, that perennial dream for futurists that always seem to be at least five years away, may be a little closer to reality than we realize. A lot of prototypes have been showcased recently, and a lot of money is being tossed around. More people than ever seem to buy into the crazy notion that in the near future we’ll be buzzing between rooftops in private, autonomous drones. Today, Munich-based Lilium Aviation announced an important milestone: the first test flight of its all-electric, two-seater, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) prototype.
– New Innovations

Oh, did we mention that it’s all-ELECTRIC!! Duuuude! No gas. Imagine charging this with solar power and flying with no fossil fuel use or emissions. BOOM!

Technology: Stopping Intrusive ‘Rogue Drones’ (Video)

I actually heard about using raptors to take down unwelcome drones. But the rest of these though, interesting.

How do you take down an illegal drone? Here are 4 Insane ways…
– Freeze Lists

A couple of things about this video though… First, notice that once you assign a ‘term’ to a problem, the campaign combatting it intensifies, Case in point, did you know there was a fight against ‘rogue drones’ until we started calling them that? Second, anybody see how this might be another way to pit robots against humans? We will need to be VERY careful about who we deem ‘rogue humans’ (uh oh, is that a ‘term’).
