Well we finally made it back to Friday!
And now it’s Spring!! And not St. Paddy’s Day. And stuff.
“Bare-handed procedural speech synthesis”
You move a series of very basic controls and a computer voice makes the noises that those effects would produce.
This is hilarious. But also ingenious.
This app replicates the environment used to command and control the NASA Mars rovers. There are a variety of things you can examine and play with. It’s a bit daunting, but fascinating. There is an intro tutorial but not much other information. Still fun to mess around with.
Ambient music + radio chatter from your airport of choice = background bliss (sort of.)
Making the rounds-ish.
A neat puzzle game involving spacey-looking physics. Fun!
Note: This game requires GPU acceleration, which may be turned off by default in Chrome. (Try Firefox if so.)
Ta daaaaa! You have been Friday Linked!!
Have a great (warm?) weekend.
