Ground-breaking music technology is anything but
Flo Rida’s place in the music world is certainly not in good standing, and it appears as though any credibility he did have, just took a major hit.
You see, the musician is less known for his songs and more so known for throwing temper tantrums, ripping off ideas, and skipping concerts. And now he’s launched this “contraption”, which has everyone rolling their eyes at a horrible attempt on trying to cash in on the rise in popularity of digital music technology.
The piece you see above is called “Beamz by Flo” and from what I gather, it allows the user to “make music” by moving his or her hands through laser beams that are pre-programmed with songs like Taylor Swift’s “We are never ever getting back together” and Flo Rida’s “Whistle”.
According to Flo, “Whether your fantasy’s to be a rock hero, a DJ thrilling the crowd, or you just want to fulfill your dreams of playing the music you love, you have to try my Beamz for yourself.”
True that, homie.
As was expected, many in the music community took exception to what’s clearly a bullshit product. None more than Deadmau5, who called Flo out on the technology after seeing the video himself: “Well…fuck. so much for my career…the futures here. shit… save me an opening slot at least,” he Tweeted, followed by a series of the following posts: “Seriously though… at least at one point during that commercial shoot, Flo must been like “man… someone might see this… mmmnahhhhhhh fuckit,” he wrote. “.@beamzmusic im in. ill sell out, i dont give a fuck. I’ll do your next advert. 7 million. cash. unmarked bills. #tourmoney”.
