A curated collection of links to cool stuff on the internet spanning various subjects. Chances are you’ll find a lot of web/art/design or whatever stuff done with computers as that’s what interests me the most! Maybe politics too, you’ve been warned.
- Cool 3D visualisation of space debris
I knew there was a lot of human-made stuff just orbiting near our planet, but knowing about something and visualising it are often two very different things.
- Cool old-school filter on a website
I’m not sure but it seems it’s a promotional website for some kind of Kanye documentary. To be honest, I don’t really care. I just really like the filter they used.
- Cool bug in the way Apple software decodes PNGs
Try opening this link with Safari (if you have it within reach) and with something else to see the difference. Always blows my mind how cool people find strange bugs in software and try to exploit them just for fun.
- Cool artist portfolio
I love when people create digital things that transcribe the look and feel of real-world objects. This one mimics a newspaper.
- Cool technique to represent images while they’re loading
You noticed how gradients are the new trend lately? You can mix them with some kind of old-school progressively loading images. Cool!
- Cool drawing website
I remember spending an infinite amount of time playing with MS Paint as a kid. This is the 2021 cool web version of it.
- Cool visualisation of emojis
If you ever wondered if someone had sorted the emojis by size of the thing they represent, here’s your answer. Oh, and there’s the same thing with Pokémons (cool too).
- Cool article about why you should set the
langattribute on your webpage
Did you know that assistive technology might choose a different pronounciation depending on the ’region subtag’ (the
en-USfor instance) of the
langattribute? Well you can’t say you don’t now.
