Volkswagen and Underworld collaborate on an innovative project that allows you to create music as you drive.
The innovative app reads how and where you drive, translating it into music live. The app gets speed and RPM data from the GTI’s on-board computer. The steering acceleration and location data is calculated from a combination of the accelerometer, gyroscope and GPS receiver present in the iPhone. All of the data collected is filtered and smoothed before use.
The application makes use of the musical programming language PD (Pure Data) to generate the music and effects live. So you create unique music with your drive in real time. Driving Music reinvented.
Why sleep when you can watch TV series non-stop? To make sure people don’t sleep in France, Paris agency Buzzman has taken to selling coffee for CANALplay. It’s called “Insomny Coffee” and it’s available in beans, ground or even as nespresso compatible capsules.
People can order the coffee online at insomnycoffee.canalplay.com or even buy it at selected supermarkets. It’s a very simple, but great idea to break through the clutter in a crowded and competitive market.
For the price of 5€ you can pick up a packet of coffee and a code that gives you a 2 month free trial for CanalPlay.
Going in at the product level is certainly something we are seeing more and more of. We already wrote about the product innovation/campaign by Buzzman for Milka here.

musical drama is getting a shortened season of five episodes to say goodbye to New Orleans
and wrap up all the dangling storylines in a little more optimistic finale.

President Obama is about to be elected and the residents on the streets of battered New Orleans are beginning to feel hope again, some wanting to return to normality, some wanting to be able to turn a profit again, and it’s not all easy with corrupt cops and greedy developers making the struggle that much harder.
