…Ricardo Autobahn celebrates The Golden Age of Video?

Ricardo Autobahn’s The Golden Age of Video is amazing. He took clips from various movies (and a few TV shows) and mashed them into a song, but gave it a beat and lyrics that border on actually making sense, so that what you end up with is a video that could fool you into thinking it was music.

…SynchStep gives your life a beat?


If you’ve always wanted to have your own soundtrack, then check out SynchStep for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

SynchStep taps into the iPhone and iPod Touch’s motion sensor, and matches your music library to your pace. The result is that “every step you take lands in-time with a drum hit, a bass pluck, a piano chord”.

Unfortunately the beat that follows your feet is only available in “sucktacular beta” for now, but when the SDK goes live, prepare yourself for tons of fantastic apps just like this one.
