Twas the last Friday before Xmas, and all through the house.
Friday Links were being clicked on, by many a mouse…

Welcome, and since it’s Xmas week next week, two bonus links! (Scorrrre!)

Here we go…

» Santa’s Flight Plan

Includes a discussion about how NORAD and other agencies can track Santa’s flight path on Christmas eve. No mention of his actual flight credentials or aircraft number though. 🙂

» The Turn: Fredo Viola

This is one of the most unique and entertaining sites I’ve come across in quite a while. Fredo Viola describes himself as a musician and performance artist. Check out the interface, and the carefully-crafted video collage performances he’s put together. Highly recommended.

» Tilted Twister

“a Lego Mindstorms robot that solves Rubik’s cube”
This is… uh… wow. This must have taken quite a while to build… and program… and test… But it works! And you can build it yourself.

» Bush vs. Shoe: The Game

Insane. Developed (obviously) really quickly. Let’s see how well you avoid airborne shoes.

» The Cardboard Christmas Tree

[self explanatory]
Mail them to your friends! Kind of a cute idea. (And mostly green!)

» Cute Things Falling Asleep
