My track in DJ Kicks mixed by Gold Panda

My track in DJ Kicks mixed by Gold Panda

Gold Panda, a world famous British producer/musician, used one of my old tracks in his mix CD! The track is called “Monolith”. It was included in my first album “Mind the Gap” released back in 2002.

The track was mixed with a track called “If’s, And’s and But’s” produced by Jan Jelinek, who happens to be one of my all-time favorite producers.

Thank you, Gold Panda! Congratulations to your great works!!

ToyToyota – Backseat Driver

ToyToyota – Backseat Driver

backseat-driver-toytoyota-app-3.jpg

The latest work of Qosmo. I worked for the iPhone implementation of ToyToyota – Backseat Driver.

Backseat Driver, the first product introduced by ToyToyota, is an iPhone application which allows users to enjoy driving from the back seat of their car.

The player controlling My Car follows Papa Car, whose moves mirror the route of the real car in which the player is riding, using the iPhone’s GPS functionality. By steering My Car left and right to follow Papa Car’s path and pick up objects, the player can score points. Backseat Driver offers the passenger a new way to enjoy the driving.

The route that you took will be saved automatically so that you can look over.You can gain points by collecting the items Papa Car drops, and the Landmark Icons of shops and facilities that are from the real maps. After you gained some points, you can customize your car with your own designs. The designs of your car and the saved route you took can be shared via Twitter.
