Microsoft Flash-type product: Sparkle

[link 1 ] [link 2] Still trying to understand what it is exactly, but it seems like Flash integrated into the next version of Windows. Could be significant if they do it properly. How likely that is is debatable.

Tube poker anyone?

http://www.tubepoker.com It's a site for a short film, looks good, it's running really slowly but worth trying later.

Awesome real paintbrush

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4184160.stm http://web.media.mit.edu/~kimiko/iobrush/ Pick up colours from the world around you and paint. Made for kids really, but a great tool. New feature records video of the moment you pick up the colour so you can subsequently touch the painting and find out where the colour is from.

Flock claims to be a new kind of 'social' web browser, integrating popular web services (Flickr, Blogging tools, social networking sites, etc.) into your browsing experience. It's based on Firefox, made by a bunch of ex-Mozilla guys, and by the looks of it, there's a lot of interest, (mainly from the blogging community) considering it's only a private beta release at the moment.

    Big Black Pencil

    http://www.leoburnett.ca/ Fun. I normally hate things like this. But it's a bit like a flash experiment as a real site, and it works. Wow.

    DTV: Internet TV on your Mac. (And on your PC. Soon.)

    DTV is an app that acts like an internet TV viewer - you can browse available content channels, or download, manage and view any video content on the internet. You can also create your own channels out of existing video, and subscribe to and automatically download new content. Some of the cooler features are: • Supports 'seamless' BitTorrent & HTTP downloads (haven't checked this out yet) • Suports RSS, so you can subscribe to existing RSS video feeds • Currently supports all Quicktime-compatible media, will soon support AVIs, Flash, Real, and Windows media. Oh, and: • Totally free and open source Haven't explored fully, but maybe we could use this for our display screen... Check out the site

    It's a Nokia but it's not a phone!

    Video game advert repository

    http://gameads.gamepressure.com/ Pretty amazing site. You can view almost any ad for any game on there. The viewing feature is well organised, and everything's available to download. Don't know if they've had any conversation about copyright... Lots of good/weird creative work Highlights: Katamari Damacy fold-up Mario, School's out Golf/Porn
