  2. Hey there Creighton, do you want something that will impress visitors to your digs? Get out some serious cash for the Bang & Olufsen Beosound 3200. Techmoan got the CD playing unit and found some powered speakers, thinking it was time to see what this "Rich Hippie/Calvin Fischoeder"-level was like. Press PLAY to find out how Denmark confused normal people with their strange user interface.;) ("Bang & Olufsen"? Never heard of it!)
  3. OK, you're the rejuvenated macabre movie villain, Dr. Phibes. It's the 21st century and clockwork orchestras are so "last century," so what is Vincent Price to do? Found on a Japanese website, "Techmoan" explores an "animated/robot band" that plays over 20 Jazz-inflected tunes. Press PLAY to find out how entertaining this "sound and motion" thing is.;)

  5. "Techmoan" wanted a state-of-the-art late night movie audio experience. However, "your mileage may vary" is the key phrase for this expen$ive "Bluetooth Speaker system." Press PLAY if you want to find out how an over $300 speaker system is as good as $60 stereo headphones.

Press PLAY to see if you can sing along as the DCC lyrics scroll by...your name is "Superman," right?;)
  9. There are Bluetooth speakers and there are stereo speaker pairs. "Techmoan" has found an exception to that observation with TWO Bluetooth speakers. First off, these are 250 Pounds Sterling EACH. (Matt bought a "lightly used" one on eBay.) Second, Bluetooth "pairing" is the least of your worries. Press PLAY to find out why "Techmoan" likes these as a pair.;)
  10. How small can a record player get and still sound "good"? I looked up the Mighty Tiny mini record player, but more on that later.

  13. It's "back to the future" time again, with "Techmoan." Return to the mid-1980's in Japan, where 3D is about to take the video market by storm as The Next Big Thing! But it wasn't, either in Japan or the rest of the world, since this was sub-Laserdisc video quality. Nevertheless, 3D fan "Techmoan" will take you there as he looks at what/how this CD-pickup system worked and why it failed, only to be revived in the DVD era, for a while. Ready, Set, Go! if you don't mind a few glitches, in the darkest room in your place...;)
  14. If/when your local TV station has a "the Flipster has been fried!" moment, what did they play while engineers solved the problem? The "Techmoan" Mood Music Channel presents: "Music to cover TV breakdowns." Press PLAY to "Lemons and Oranges" from the BBC.;)
  15. Do you remember music CDs? "Techmoan" does, and wondered if stand alone music CD players are still being produced. The next question was, could a video game console or "modern computer" still play music CDs? Press PLAY to find out if your should be looking for a PS3 or original XBox. Then there's album artwork, which is scarce, even for Gracenote.

Press PLAY to find out about the 1979-1982 era of desktop hifi.
  19. Have a hankering to listen to music from Kenya? "There's Internet Radio for that," say Tech nerds. Matt looked around and found the CityRadio for sale in Italy. Press PLAY to find out if this is an easy way to hear music from, say, Havana or Tokyo "like you live there."
  20. Got some of grandpa's 78 RPM records in the house? Did you ever want to play them on a modern turntable instead of the acoustic Victrola? Fear not, "Techmoan' has a tutorial on some of what's different between "microgroove 1 mil" LPs and larger/wider "3 mil" styli used on, say, early Elvis Presley records. Press PLAY if you want to find out what Matt had to do for a few seconds of Elvis Aaron Presley.;)
  21. How do you make a captive audience, standing in line, what kind of extra services you have available? Labelle came up with the Commpak sound+slide show package that "Techmoan" saw at his post office in the 1990's.

Say no more, here at CrowdFund Inc., we have a bird feeder that will make a still and video of avian visitors. "Techmoan" bit, and had to wait a bit longer than he expected for a WiFi/SmartPhone kit that keeps an eye out for "the blue bird of happiness." Does this thing work better than the usual Trail Camera? Press PLAY to see what lurks in Matt's small garden...

  25. It's just past the turn of the century and a sleazy-looking tech rep sidles up to your nascent band, "Shouting Punkz!" He asks if you'd like to send out a VHS single to your fans and "interested parties." You and your band mates haul out your dad's dodgy Camcorder and "make a demo video" that becomes a V-Lite tape. "Techmoan" takes a look at this nearly-all-plastic video sub-genre with an early 2000 A&E promotional video aimed at high school drama students. Press PLAY to find out if it does, and what it's made of in glorious NTSC video!;)
