Introducing the Keyocera Echo, the world’s first dual screen mobile phone. Practical? Nope. Aesthetically please? Of course it is! Two 3.5-inch 480 x 800 screens that can be opened and used as a single 4.7-inch 960 x 800 surface. It has 1GHz Snapdragon processor (Second Generation) with the Android 2.2 OS. Unfortunately, there are presently no pieces of software that really make use of the tandem screens beyond the operating system itself. The phone will be $199 in a 2 year contract, which isnt bad at all. For more info, head over to the sprint website.

Above is a video of a beer machine that can fill a cup through the base. How this occurs without spillage, we have no idea, but it sure does look cool! Here’s how it actually works: “The cup features a small hole at the bottom, covered up by a circular magnet. Pressurized beer lifts the magnet up, filling the cup until the weight of the beer on top of the magnet pushes it back down, sealing the bottom. This system is not only faster (serving 56 draft beers in a minute), but minimizes spilling, to the joy of sticky-footed concert-goers everywhere.” WOW!

Lifetime friends and composers George Michael Brower & Jonathan Baken are very big fans of electronic music. As a result of their love, they decided to create a body of work made with a low tech music editor that uses chip-tone sounds and percussion called Piston Collage (or PX Tune). The two released a body of work called The Best Music. It is complex, well composed, and will remind you of some of your favorite old school 8bit game soundtracks. Below is a streaming version of the album. If you like it, download it from the link below as well
