NASA (via Welton)
You’ve gotta give NASA credit, they always know how to make sure they have our attention. With the Discovery coming in for its final descent into our atmosphere, Twitter went wild for the brilliant and really well executed live shots provided on uStream.
Koalas To The Max – (via Dave)
Without ruining the surprise too much if you love koalas (who doesn’t love koalas?) and cool sites then this is for you. Pop all the blobs into their smallest form to be in with a nice surprise….
MS Paint (via Welton)
Sometimes things come along that are just so awesome but you are at odds to explain them. Without disturbing a developer for the intricacies of this, let’s just say this is what happens when you take the code of a programme like Paint and see what it sounds like as digital audio. Daft Punk’s secret has been rumbled?!
Firefox 4 Demos (via Rob)
The end of days is coming… where only the fastest, brightest and coolest will survive. I’m, of course, talking about the ultimate HTML5 browser showdown. IE9 displayed their, admittedly, pretty cool frame rate test. But, due to my admittedly geeky nostalgia for a programme called QuickTime VR, the 360 degree video on the Firefox 4 demo site has won my vote (although if I’m honest, I accessed both through Chrome).
Kinect Hacking (via Gem)
In a recent blog article, Tony talked about the importance of being useful as opposed to just interesting. Kinect hacks have been numerous but have suffered hugely from being really cool but not that useful. We’re finally getting to the point where people are really thinking about how useful the technology is and with 1million users and counting we have high hopes for this trend to continue.
