Wacom Cintiq 13HD takes digital art creation mobile

Wacom may be having a ball putting digital pen technology into bestselling mobile devices like the Galaxy Note II, but that doesn't mean the company has forgotten its artistic roots. Fresh to the catalog is the Cintiq 13HD, a 13.3-inch Full HD graphics tablet intended for digital artists on the move. Based around a 1920 x 1080 wide-angle display mounted on an adjustable, three-position detachable stand, the Cintuq 13HD promises the flexibility of its bigger Cintiq siblings, but at a more affordable cost and scaled to fit in your bag.

Apple prototypes of the 80’s unveiled

The designer known as Hartmut Esslinger has revealed an amazing treasure trove of never before seen designs from the Apple archives this week in a book by the name of "Design Forward."

It's time to bust out the fabulously gigantic smartphone known as the Samsung Galaxy Note II to bring on a rather impressive bit of interactive water art. Artists and designers at Steak Studio have used the Galaxy Note II and its build-in S-Pen to create a pool of water that blasts forth waves wirelessly, showing all manner of designs in the wetness. This project took 10 days to create and was made to cross-promote Samsung's device and the group that's working with it to create beautiful splashing letterforms.

SlashGear interviews Futura 2000 on Samsung and the power of cross-branding

SlashGear interviews Futura 2000 on Samsung and the power of cross-branding

The artist / designer known as Futura 2000 has executed a rather interesting set of collaborative projects in his lifetime, painting a portfolio of historically significant cross-overs that's lead him straight to Samsung. The folks at Samsung took the opportunity very recently to team up with Futura for the first time to present a unique use-case for the Galaxy Note 10.1 (tablet with S-Pen stylus) and its major potential in the hands of this creative icon and legend. In our interview we found that though Samsung presents this man as a larger-than-life hero here in their second collaboration (here using the Galaxy Note II as a central device), he's actually quite the down-to-earth conversationalist, and has shown his approach with the Galaxy Note device series to be made with the same intrigue as your everyday average gadget enthusiast.

Beck “Song Reader” album cuts out the music

This week it's been announced that the musical artist known as Beck will be releasing an album comprised of 20 pieces of sheet music called "Beck Hansen's Song Reader". This is 20 pieces of music that are not recorded by the artist, instead intended by the artist to be played and recorded by whoever so wishes to do so. Licensing issues and future recordings by associated artists aside, we applaud Beck's ability to have so much cash on hand that he experiments with each new release.

Kinetic Rain sculpture makes art in mid-air

Airport terminals can be soul-destroying places at the best of times, with little to distract you as wait for your connection, so we can only hope we end up killing time at Singapore Airport's Terminal 1 on our next trip. The refurbished terminal has a new "kinetic sculpture" called Kinetic Rain by ART+COM, consisting of 1,216 individually controlled copper droplets that can be moved to create ephemeral shapes, waves and more.
