Tony Turnin’ Turbo Dashboard

Yes, I remember it. I didn’t have one, but I always made sure to get in some turbo time at any friend’s house that did.

Control Panel:

Moog Inspired Art Goes Galactic: “We’re pleased to be participating in “SYNTH: A Group Art Show Inspired by Bob Moog” for the third year in a row (check out our 2010 and 2011 Moog inspired blog posts too). For our submission this year, we decided to fuse Moog’s iconic synthesizers with the cockpit of a spaceship to create an intergalactic music machine.” (via DKNG Studios)

This thing even glows in the dark!

FF DIN, one of the most popular FontFonts yet, finally has a Condensed Italic. More than a simple oblique, this is an optically-adjusted italic matching all five weights of FF DIN Condensed. It fits nicely into Albert-Jan Pool’s finely crafted version of the DIN model.

RE-BO by Bootleg Objects

“Beocenter 1400” – designed for Bang&Olufsen in 1973 by Jacob Jensen – embodies the epitome of Scandinavian design at the top of its historical relevance. Formal language, relation of nature and technology, and formalism in interface design all conjure up the spirit of modernism. In the series of the Bootleg Objects, the BO.02 is a representative of the era of the music cassette. However, the cassette slot now houses a smart card reader. Further, a DVD-drive is hidden behind a previously unused groove in the front panel, and a 16:9 TFT display has joined the object on the sly. The legendary slider control formerly used to control the radio tuning now becomes both a display and controller for a whole slew of functions. Consequently, instead of “tuning” the label now reads “anything”.
