Seven Raymond Scott Ringtones

I’m a big fan of electronic music pioneer Raymond Scott.  While his strange sounds didn’t meet with much of an audience during his lifetime, they seem perfect for this modern age of beeping devices.  I chopped up a few of his noises and made ringtones out them.  The mp3s are below. raymond scott raymond scott …

Banana Rocket

Limited Edition – Banana FP Rocket By Lunartik JOnes on Flickr – Photo Sharing!. Like most people, I’d often noticed that rockets look like cocks and cocks look like bananas but I’d never noticed that rockets look like bananas. This toy from Lunatrik has changed that.

Russian Power Boots

Apparently the Russians cannot run into a hail of enemy gunfire fast enough. So they’ve invented the Powerboot. While shoe improvements in the decadent west have been gimmicks – think Nike Air and Reebok Pump – these Russian things are powered by biofuel. In them, you can run 25mph and take strides of about 12 …
