If you can believe it: it’s already Friday again!
And the first one of Summer 2016! (in my hemisphere.)
And now: on to this week’s links…
Swiss Army Man
Created to help promote the A24-produced film “Swiss Army Man” (in theatres now), this little web… thing let’s you play with an inanimate person who responds to certain typed commands.
This ate up quite a bit of one of my days this week…
Edan Kwan: Particle Love
A great selection of particle physics all created and manipulated in the browser.
It definitely can eat up quite a bit of your computer’s processor to do it, but the results are pretty fantastic.
The Temple of No by Crows Crows Crows
A sort of “choose your own adventure” game all performed in browser.
Cleverly achieved. Sent in by Alyssa H.
(Note: I would go see a band if their name was Ragdoll Achievement…)
The goal here is to cause damage to a crash test dummy (ragdoll.)
This is cartoon-y violence at its best. Also: similar and yet unrelated to the Swiss Army Man above!
»Malling-Hansen Writing Ball«, 1867
“The first typewriter in the world produced in series. Serial-No. 97. Pastor Rasmus Hans Johan Malling-Hansen – director of Denmark’s deaf-and-dumb institute in Copenhagen – invented this wonderful precision machine. Giant showpiece of any collection in fantastic original condition!
Estimate: US$ 65,000/104,000”
It isn’t obvious to me how this would actually be used, but apparently it was.
Beautiful looking machine though…
Finally: A great read I was sent by many subscribers this week analyzes the typography found in the movie Blade Runner. It’s making the rounds, it’s exhaustive, and I love it.
And so there we go! Summer links number 1: sorted.
I will see you again next week.
