Useless But Cool: iDaft
Fans of Daft Punk—and sample pad enthusiasts—will find iDaft entertaining. Basically, iDaft is a website that presents samples from Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger in a clean grid format. Each cell plays an individual sample when clicked on or its corresponding keyboard shortcut is pressed. It’s cool being able to imperfectly replicate the intro of Kanye West’s Stronger, which by the way, used samples from Daft Punk’s original.
This isn’t really something that will change your life or boost your productivity tremendously. But like I said, it’s cool. What’s amazing is that no one’s attempted to turn this into a mobile app! I can imagine iPhone and iPod touch users need another reason to back-up their gadgets’ professed superiority, though it wouldn’t hurt to see a Java version of this online app, made for mobiles.
Also, it would great to see other versions of iDaft, like iBritney iJustin, or whatever you can think of.
