Sure, you can take a decent in-focus picture of anything (particularly anything with a blue LED on it) and it will look cool, but... goddamn! This is a Chiclet - a pocket-sized digital music-making box that runs for ten hours on two AA batteries. It's been in development by a group of MIT Media Lab types since 2002. The thing is, it's totally baffling. I've read most of this site, and this site, and I really don't understand it. One of the programmers, Ethan Bordeaux, had a paper published called: "Implementation of a Modern Adaptive Multirate (AMR) Codec for Cellular Systems Using a Multicore DSP". The one bit that sounds really interesting is this: They're planning to mass-produce the boxes, but rather than selling them to musicians (who'd want customer support, usable software etc), they want to sell them in record shops, programmed with their own musical alogrithms, as a kind of self-contained music generating box. So... as with all these things, it all goes back to Raymond Scott who in 1967 launched the Fascination and the Participator - two ambient music boxes which generated background music for your house.
