Admit it! You’ve never seen a tablet do that before. I was nodding my head to the beat of this one before I even knew what I was witnessing. The music is hot toe-tapping entertainment, which is heavily complemented by a feast of visuals that erupt on stage with the subtle slickness of a sold-out Pop concert. But get this… This near sci-fi musical composition was written by the renowned Flume and composed by a live band of Intel powered tablets. Intel and Flume set out to make a melodious “visual spectacle” and that’s just what they did. Yet you can’t create such musical witchcraft with just any ol’ tablet. You need something versatile with robust staying power–something that melds the mobile world with a more familiar and traditional computing world.

In a quest to be true to his form and write in a fashion he normally would–not compromising in lieu of device constraints–Flume accepted Intel’s challenge. He created the piece above using tools downloaded directly to the Intel tablets from the Play Store, with a bit of additional help from his own proprietary software.

This is more than robots remotely playing traditional instruments. Intel has created a nexus where raw creative genius converges with intricate robotics. These are robots programmed to play on Intel tablets as if they were instruments from plucked from the future. Flume exquisitely demonstrates the processing muscle, extraordinary battery life, energy efficiency and flexibility with existing computing traditions found in Intel Tablets.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
