My resident Rube Goldberg watched this video exactly 27 times before turning to me with a maniacal grin and saying, “where’s the duct tape?”
My house, and my boy, might never be the same.
The song is from the new album “Of the Blue Colour of the Sky” by Ok Go The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in Los Angeles. The “machine” was designed and built by the band, along with members of Syyn Labs over the course of several months. Syyn Labs calls themselves “a group of creative engineers who twist together art and technology. We build gizmos, whatzits, and interactive installations that encourage strangers to play together by lowering social barriers.”
Based solely on this description and their amazing machine, Syyn Labs now ranks WAY up there on my guy’s “cool places I’d like to work someday” list. They’re right behind Lucas Arts and Legoland. Oh, and if OK Go is looking for an almost 8 year old guitar player, he’s so in!
