Howwwww is it already the last Friday in September? So crazy.

Welcome! To your Friday Links!

Let’s get started…

Design With AI

Design With AI

“AI Driven Logos for your Brand”

They’re pretty pedestrian but once in a while they have some interesting output.

It’s still a work in progress, and it costs money to customizer them, but this is interesting.

“What is your ex-wife’s newest last name?”

Electrio

Electrio

“Connect all the electrons in a single chain. Lines must not overlap each other.”

It gets pretty challenging pretty quickly. I like it!

Here we go!

Danny Dutch: Watch Animated Visualisations of the Bass Lines for Motown Classics

Danny Dutch: Watch Animated Visualisations of the Bass Lines for Motown Classics

“Sideman James Jamerson, Paul McCartney’s musical hero and a co-author of the Motown sound, is a great illustration of the bass’ importance in pop and R&B history.”

This type of visualization is pretty mesmerizing and educational to watch.

GREGORY GROZOS / Miniature Worlds

GREGORY GROZOS / Miniature Worlds

Three dimensional dioramas in a space the size of a wristwatch.

Really beautifully done.

Rotary Signal Emitter

“Artwork by Reuben Sutherland for Audiovisual duo Sculpture”

A good little tumblr featuring several custom Zeotropes and other artworks.

What Goes Up

What Goes Up

“A platformer without falling.”

It’s challenging in totally different ways. I like it!

This concludes our weekly link dump.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Happy Friday everybody!

Friday… THE THIRTEENTH!!

And it’s the second-last Friday in Summer 2019. Wah.

But it’s Friday! And we’re going to get through this!

Let’s go!

Online Tone Generator: Hearing Test

Online Tone Generator: Hearing Test

Note: definitely use headphones.

Turns out my hearing is better than I thought! (And I had chronic intermittent hearing loss for the past several years.)

It goes a little fast but it’s a good little tool. And it’s free!

Specifically his exhibit “SÓLIDOS DEFORMES” project is quite something. They look like rock erosion but they’re made from huge books. Difficult to describe. Really well done.

A Library For Bartenders

A Library For Bartenders

“For the new generations of bartenders these rare volumes, dating from the 1820s through the 1940s, are financially out of reach. However, these sources of research are crucial to career development and creative inspiration as well as to personal advancement in a profession that has rediscovered a justifiable sense of pride and purpose.”

Now you can learn to make a “Punch Royal” the way George Washington would have wanted it.

Crack The Balls

Crack The Balls

Carefully position where you will drop your missile, and it bounces and smashes a series of balls on the way down.

A little addictive. Not bad.

Well there ya go! All Friday’d up in here.

Have a lovely weekend everybody.

Welcome back!

Second last Friday of Summer 2019. (Or for you southern-hemis: Winter 2019.)

So fast.

At least we have these links to get us through it! Let’s go!

GoodAfterNine: Rings

GoodAfterNine: Rings

Beautifully rendered rings with animal faces, most notably birds.

Really lovely.

R2bEEaton’s Phonetic Reverser

R2bEEaton's Phonetic Reverser

“When we say “phonetic reverser” we mean that rather than simply reversing the order of letters, we show you exactly how to pronounce something backwards.”

What an odd, but entertaining tool.

There’s also a YouTube video describing the development process of this… thing. Interesting!

Nailing jelly to a wall: is it possible?

Nailing jelly to a wall: is it possible?

“In this experiment I attempt to establish, one way or the other, the validity of the old proverb.”

This is quite old, but I find it fascinating.

Incremental Memory

Incremental Memory

A fast-paced memory game. You are shown a series of boxes for a brief amount of time and must correctly select their location.

It ramps up pretty quickly.

Extremely challenging!

And that is that! Done! Kaput!

Have a great Friday everybody! Thanks for reading along at home / work / wherever.
