When art and tech make a perfect marriage

When art and tech make a perfect marriage

Whatever’s made in Brooklyn doesn’t have to stay in Brooklyn.

In fact, it might actually shake up the art world.

At least that’s the big-picture idea behind the Make It in Brooklyn Arts + Tech Pitch Contest, where five founders from the borough’s most innovative companies got a chance to stand in front of a firing squad (okay, a thoughtful and reasonable group of judges) for the opportunity to nab $5,000 for their start-ups, no strings attached.

I loved hearing their wide-ranging ideas, varying from an augmented-reality music-discovery app (you “drop” songs you enjoy in specific locations and others can pick them up) to a next-level platform for writers inspired by popular Chinese publishers.

More on the Brooklyn startups that will have you looking differently at museums, music, TV and books, in my latest story at The Bridge.
