will.i.am is armed with an super thin, sleek, easy to travel with Ultrabook™ and he’s getting around the world. He started off in Tokyo, went on to Las Vegas for CES and last week was in Mexico City as part of the Ultrabook™ project tour. A tour that has him taking in the sounds and sights of each city and then creating a custom song for each city. Using his technology enables him to be a successful innovator, creator and artist.
And to my fun surprise I found out he made a stop in Scottsdale, Arizona for the Waste Management Phoenix Open Golf Tournament to DJ! Lucky me, I was able to get tickets and watch him DJ the night away. I particularly loved seeing him up on stage and the big screen with his computer based DJ set-up.
In Mexico he visited the Museo Soumaya and toured the art. He attended a wrestling match, Luche Libre where he connected with local famed artist Joan Sebastian, as they took in the fun, colors and costumes of the Luche Libre entertainment.
