Hooray for Friday!

And where I live, it’s a long weekend. Huzzah!

And now: some links…

Daily Overview

Daily Overview

“Our project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole.”

Some great, great photography here.

The Making Of Me And You

A BBC web installation that takes your age, your height and weight, and then spits out a large amount of beautifully depicted data of the atoms, cells and substances that make up “you”. (Including what some of those elements cost.)

It’s making the rounds and it is well worth a look.

Bike In A Backpack

Created by Bangalore India’s Lucid Design this is an ingenious, beautiful little vehicle. Nicely done.

Wilds.io

A massively multiplayer open-ended brawler which appears to largely be grounded in JavaScript.

Certainly fun. I don’t last very long in it but perhaps you will. Super fun.

Bonus Link!

I DROPPED MY PHONE THE SCREEN CRACKED

A weird little tumblr that shows (naturally) a series of photos of cats, and beneath each of those, a little piece of code that generates a sound to accompany the cat photo.

You can play around with the code to generate different sounds.

It’s weird. I kind of like it.

Sent in by Kate S. (who loves cats.)

And there we have it! Another Friday all wrapped up.

See you again in seven days.
