Buddha Machine [iPhone, Sound]

The Buddha Machine is a palm-sized plastic box that plays ambient music loops composed by Beijing-based duo FM3. The iPhone  application is a “virtual Buddha Machine” replicating the no-nonsense simplicity of the original. The app was developed together with Jason Forrest (see Star6 on CAN) and Agile Partners.

Featuring hypnotic, ethereal music designed to create a calming presence in today’s fast paced world, the machine’s colorful charm provides an experience that is hard to define.

Touch the FM3 logo on the Buddha box to flip the screen. Then toggle between the “classic” original Buddha Machine or enjoy the new loops from Buddha version 2.0.
