Oh hey hi!

It’s Friday!

And we have some links to check out!

Here goes…

Theremin

Theremin

A web version of this vintage electronic music device.

Sounds cool! There are (of course) apps for it as well.

1974 Zagato Zele 1000

1974 Zagato Zele 1000

A tiny, electric vehicle from 1974. I had no idea.

Auctioned in 2018 by Sotheby’s.

It is surprisingly spacious inside. I question how safe it is but wow: quite lovely.

Sequencer64

Sequencer64

An interactive drum machine in your browser. Comes with several pretty decent default patterns. Nicely done!

Dot Dot Dot

Dot Dot Dot

Click to create circles for the ball to bounce off of. Attempt to get the ball to the black dot.

It is hard! But super fun.

We did it you guys!

I hope your Friday is excellent, and your weekend is awesome.

See you again next Friday!

Well hello at last.

I somehow forgot to send out today’s links, so I’m sending them now. Shout out to the Pacific coast of North America.

Sadly: only three links this week. It was a super busy week for me. They’re still good.

Let’s gooooo!!!

Ming Lu

Ming Lu

“As Made-in-China mass production became a global industrial phenomena, the artist works closely with the handicraft that is known to be slow, inaccurate, time and labor consuming, almost forgotten but are deep-rooted.”

She makes a roast chicken out of traditional Chinese porcelain.

Some pretty great work here.

Readify.Me

Readify.Me

“readify.me provides a safe, easy, open-source solution that allows you to read articles in peace – all without the need to download any software, create an account or even store any cookies!”

The fact that this site needs to exist is really sort of sad.

I find embedded videos needlessly distracting and annoying. As a result I often copy all the text and just paste it in a text editor to read the article. Super annoying.

Note that not all sites work well with it, but it helps.

Rocketpult

Rocketpult

An EXTREMELY challenging but (in my opinion) super fun game.

And there we go! Fridayyyyyy!

Happy Friday, and happy Spring (in the northern hemisphere.)

See you next Friday everybody!

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe and feeling positive.

Photographer Updates Postcards Of 1960s Resorts Into Their Abandoned Ruins

Flashbak’s Sheldon D. does an extended “then vs. now” on jet-setty 1960s tourist destinations and their current run-down, dilapidated state.

Depressing, but also quite well done.

Forekast

Forekast

“Forekast is the calendar of the internet — a collection of the most epic events ever experienced by mankind.”

Wellll “most epic” is pushing it.

UK Game show “The Cube” is coming back!!

Yesterday was “National Rosé Day”!

Fun. 😊

Pictured: My neighborhood.

It reads in map coordinates and known map data about rods / streets / avenues, and then represents that as a line drawing.

It’s pretty freakin’ fast too!

Jumphase

Jumphase

A platformer where nearly everything can be a landing surface. It’s a bit of a brain-breaker. Super fun and very satisfying when you complete a level.

Sent in by Rebecca N. I like it!

Well there we go. Friday!!! With links! It’s a miracle!!

(just kidding.)

Have a fantastic weekend everybody. See you in seven days!

Look at the composition of these posters! Holy crap!

Design your own custom die. Then export it as an STL file and you can 3d print your custom die / dice.

Pretty awesome! Sadly there is no gallery of the existing creations but I love this.
