Call it the Goodby Borrowed Interest Effect. In no time at all, formerly dreary Hewlett-Packard has become the hip HP, in which all its tech is put to sexy effect for way sexier companies than HP itself will ever be. This Bang & Olufsen tie-in boasts a stoner's delight in every bite. In fact, we thought we were tripping for a minute there. This visualization-of-sound conceit relies to some degree on that long-hackneyed frozen-moment camera routine, but it's redeemed by a CG overlay of way cool soundwaves backed with psychedelically enhanced sound design.
