What’s Playing? Get the !mpulse!


One of the main projects I’ve been working on, is a technology initiative called !mpulse.

“What’s !mpulse?” you ask.

!mpulse is an interactive platform that let’s you experience a venue’s music library directly from your internet/wi-fi enabled mobile or tablet device.

!mpulse enables people to discover and get music wherever they hear it.

!mpulse displays the currently playing, and the previous nine (9) songs played at an !mpulse-enabled venue.

Wi-Fi capable mobile devices, like the iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry and Android devices, can immediately display the song that is currently playing, comment on, share via Facebook or Twitter, or even play the song right from their device.

By bridging the gap between desire and action, !mpulse also allows users to explore a venue, its music library, or the particular artist which inspired them in the first place.

We’ve rolled at !mpulse (Beta) at a few select destinations, including Red Rooster Harlem, Tillman’s NYC and we’re rolling out Townhouse Hotel in Miami, 1300 Fillmore in San Francisco and more locations to be announced shortly.

Here are a few screen shots of !mpulse.

Select a song from the playlist and you'll get this page.

If you’re ever in New York, Harlem, Miami or San Francisco, please stop into one of these establishments and take !mpulse for a spin.

If you aren’t planning on being in any of these destinations, I’ve got a treat for you…snap either of the QR codes in this post, and you’ll be able to enjoy !mpulse on your own.

If you want to listen to a song, simply click on the album art to start playback.

Please send me your comments and let me know what you think!

    Dude- where’s your twitter and linkedin widgets? Add them so I can share your posts. Keep writing.

    • Oneika, thanks for checking in on my lil blog! I didn’t even realize that I didn’t have these things activated! Boooo! So I must thank you as well for your sharp eyes and looking a bruh out!

    Very cool, congrats on your beta release. Question: do patrons in the venue see the playlist by snapping the qsr code only or is there more promotion of the !mpluse capability? Was at Red Rooster recently and didn’t even know this was available!

    • Duke, thanks for the compliment. We’re still in beta, so there hasn’t been much promotion to the public. This is really one of the first announcements of any kind for the service. We’re still tweaking the library for them, and we’re planning on an announcement with the formal launch of the service. We’re planning on having a bunch of assets in the restaurant to support the release, so that patrons know that they capacity to find out what’s playing exists. But feel free to share what you now know and become part of this Beta community!
