“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.”

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.
