Never mind guitar solo’s | ReacTable

Hendrik-Jan Grievink
January 5th 2007


Ever seen a performance of electronic musicians? No matter the genre, these events don't have the reputation of being very lively, rock 'n roll-like experiences. In the best case, you have a good VJ to make up the lack of a visual element in what the people on stage are doing behind their laptops. But now there's The ReacTable®, a device that combines a graphic user interface (GUI) with a hands-on feeling. Sounds are triggered and sequenced by moving objects around on a flat square. Not quite a Jimmy Page guitarsolo, but a small leap in an interesting direction.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
