It's built on Symfony with a few cron jobs to process everything in the background and sendind the emails through Mandrill. I'll most surely add some kind of queuing mechanism (either with redis or RMQ) soon to handle things more gracefuly.
The design is a paid wrapbootstrap theme called Harp.
Hilarious! It's an absurd combination but a surprisingly fun way to munge around with beats.
The 808 instruments sound intrinsically familiar and make the mishmash you get from random play still sound cohesive and coherent. It's an unexpectedly good choice for music toys like this. Gotta love that cowbell
This is super cool. I've looked a little at lenticular printing for 3D prints but sourcing the lenses was a little more effort than I needed. I'd pay well over material cost to have someone else handle assembling. If you add an option meant for that I'd be all over it.
Thanks! What do you mean about adding an option for 3D prints? Do you mean doing the layering on our end? We could get you viewing angles and such so that you could upload prelayered imagery through the website normally, would that work?
I think a quick shadow does a lot to give the divider some heft and alleviate concerns about visual ambiguity between foreground and background page.
It would look something like http://cl.ly/image/2N3B2V2d2L3W (pardon the wonky #ss_topPage). It can be done in CSS (+ two empty divs, uh) with small effort. To me it feels like the most usable skeuomorphic hint you could drop.
The "Promoted Tweet" pinned on top of brand pages is auto-expanded, so realistically most companies will probably be using it to showcase a video or graphic rather than trying to engage in 140. Oh well.
Not the most discoverable gesture, but it's there, though it's only a little weirder than "swipe across tweet for secondary actions" (though on that topic I'll miss using that to quickly save links to Instapaper).
I doubt phone antennas are the bottleneck, they're a pretty minor part of a huge, lumbering voice-transmission infrastructure. Much of that infrastructure is presumably expensively, archaic, and built assuming that audio traveling through it is compressed all to heck.
You can stream tunes in real time over data with quality far in excess of what a high-def voice call would need. There's bandwidth to spare on the data side of things.
