Friday Links Time Everybody!!

We made it! Again! Whuhoo! And it’s the last Friday in November. That was fast.

And a very Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends. I hope it was fantastic.

Let’s go!

Theban Mapping Project: Valley of the Kings

Theban Mapping Project: Valley of the Kings

“The purpose of the Theban Mapping Project is to design and implement existing condition reports and management plans for the archaeological sites of the Theban Necropolis.”

This is a great, great project. Explore the tombs of the pharaohs virtually supported by a crap-ton of white papers, reports, archives, etc. on the history and construction of these enormous historic structures.

Fantastic site.

“Sea Foam Salad” people! Gyuuugh.

Enjoy… (?)

EmojiMix

EmojiMix

Combines two different emojis into one.

A fantastic little time-waster!

Into The Loop (Lite)

Into The Loop (Lite)

Jump at strategic moments to send your little ball from one loop to the next.

Challenging! Even the earliest levels are super hard.

Welcome to your Friday Links!

And where I live, it finally feels like Autumn.

Let’s get to it!

Hypnogram

Hypnogram

“Create an image from text”

(Within reason. They do censor your requests.)

I actually just like looking at what others submitted (including what I chose for the image.)

Early days but it’s a fun little tool.

Scan of the Month: LEGO Minifigures

Scan of the Month: LEGO Minifigures

“LEGO knows a thing or two about plastics. They manufacture hundreds of millions of Minifigures per year. These figures are assemblies with moving parts. Each one must work with every other LEGO ever created.”

An analysis of Lego minifigures using a CT scanner.

Flag Waver

Flag Waver

You can control how the flag is hoisted, the wind speed and direction.

Pretty basic but basically your browser is doing a ton of physics and cloth simulation work right there in front of you.

Madalin Stunt Cars 2

Madalin Stunt Cars 2

It takes a while to load. It’s doing a lot.

Basically: drive around, perform and land stunts.

It’s a little slow to control but it’s still pretty fun.

Welcome back to Friday everybody!

And it’s almost mid-November already. What is time?

Links time! (Speaking of which)

Cleanup Pictures

Cleanup Pictures

“Remove any object, people, text, or defects from your pictures.”

Yup. That’s what it does.

A very clever little tool.

Rocks

Rocks

You basically stack rocks. That’s it.

It is super challenging, and I suck at it, but you might not.

You’re welcome…?

Wind Turbine Blades As Bike Sheds?

Wind Turbine Blades As Bike Sheds?

“The [re-wind] network explores the blades’ potential reuse in architectural and engineering structures, by proposing their reuse as protective bike shelters, or pedestrian bridges. one of these two ideas has already been implemented in the port of aalborg, denmark, where one can find an unusual bicycle garage, made from actual wind turbines that were once in use.”

These are beautiful!

Mini Golf Club

Mini Golf Club

The interface is a little weird, but it’s a solid 3d mini golf game.

And there we go! Your Friday now has links in it!

Happy Friday! Have a fabulous weekend. And see you next week.

Happy Friday!

Welcome to Friday!

Sadly I only have three links this week. Busy work week, and a lot less content being posted overall. It happens!

Here we go!

Timon Sager: Wolke 7 Flying House Concept

Timon Sager: Wolke 7 Flying House Concept

“The ‘Wolke 7’ is a design for a Flying house concept. It’s the perfect combination of travel and feel at home.”

It’s just a concept but it’s beautiful.

This Person Does Not Exist

This Person Does Not Exist

“Imagined by a GAN (generative adversarial network) StyleGAN2 (Dec 2019) – Karras et al. and Nvidia”

A site that uses an A.I / Machine Learning model to generate a face that is not of any existing person on earth.

Let’s Play (Pinball Simulator)

Let's Play (Pinball Simulator)

A fun little 3d pinball sim. Spacebar to launch, bottom row keys for the flippers.

It’s challenging and I notice a bit of lag on the flippers, but it’s still fun.

Happy Friday!

Have an excellent weekend everybody. And see you next week!
