Koshi Kawachi’s “Note Drawing.”

Artist Koshi Kawachi, inspired by his surroundings, put musical staff lines across various cityscapes and mountains, dotting each point with the resulting music note.  The result is a fascinating, organic piece of music that comes from pure artistic imagination.  Watch a video below of the notes being played!

Greg Klassen.

To make his furniture, artist Greg Klassen collects trees (in a sustainable way, I might mention) from the river bed of the Nooksack River which flows near his home in Lynden, Washington and then transforms them into gorgeous works of art; cutting, carving and sanding them all by hand.  You can see more of the gorgeous work below!

Supersonic - Off the Dashboard.

If you mainly keep up with Supersonic on your Tumblr Dashboard (which 99% of you do) you’ll have missed the redesign to Supersonic’s web appearance!  

With the redesign it’s easier to find Supersonic’s best posts and to navigate from post to post (back & next buttons!).  I’ve also completely redesigned the “About" page.  Take a trip off the dashboard and check it out!

The Gravity Tablet: Sketch in 3D.

Designers at Gravity have created a prototype tablet that allows artists and designers to sketch in augmented space to create three dimensional sketches, designs and drawings that can be shared with co-workers or printed via a 3D Printer.

Invented by four Design Engineering students at the Royal College of Art in England, Gravity looks like something straight from science fiction with it’s gridded, transparent acrylic surface where one draws while wearing special holograph viewing glasses.  The users can sketch, rotate and zoom in on the drawing from any angle.  Other users can even add on to the drawing.

Check out a video about Gravity below and some more pictures of the fascinating, ground breaking invention:
