1. Aimed at potential users including new music listeners, unsigned artists and public venue owners, this video is a 5 minute introduction to the grapevine.fm service.

    grapevine.fm essentially turns your mobile phone into a remote control. By allowing you to control the music around you with a simple SMS, the technology matches requests made with unsigned artists' music exposing you to great (or not so great) new music.

    Visit grapevine.fm for more information.

  3. A probe developed to elicit information about what children find important.

    The question raised as a result...

    What if we could bank imagination?

  4. The Gyrophone is a childrens musical toy hand-crafted from colourful, tropical hardwoods to contrast the current trend toward plastic and pine toys.

    The overall brief was to create a highly finished, robust children's toy. The brief I set myself within that was "Visual Sound" - to help children see how music can be formed.

    Loosely based upon a miniature music box, the Gyrophone encompasses self-crafted xylophone parts and a rotating barrel with removable pegs. These allow users to re-arrange the pattern and so change the melody.

    This toy also comes supplied with a music book with familiar nursery rhymes already transposed for the Gyrophone.

  5. An experiment in control systems, the Cubic Control let's you re-discover your photo collection.

    In the demo we have hooked up the Cube to our photo library, so each photo has it's own combination bringing up some old favourites and some we'd completely forgotten about.

    Apply this to your music selection and you'll get a similar experience.
