Create Digital Music posted this yesterday and it was something totally up my alley as far as repurposing technology to do something it wasn't intended for.
Essentially, they discovered that if you set Google Translate to translate German to German and enter certain combinations of consonants, it sounded an awful lot like human beatboxing. Here are the full instructions according to CDM:
1) Go to Google Translate
2) Set the translator to translate German to German
3) Copy + paste the following into the translate box: pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch
4) Click “listen”
5) Be amazed
How long do you suppose it will be until this turns up in a dance single?
