Diesel ExcelBook: Be Stupid At Work

Downloadable app that makes Facebook look like a spreadsheet. Like the idea. Don’t like the video. Skip to 30secs to avoid most of the annoyance.

Are You Up For A Digital Dare?

I vaguely remember this from school. Don’t remember it being called a ‘chatterbox’ though. Nice idea though.

Egg Timer iPhone app

Love this app for Kalles that tells you how to boil the perfect egg, but also puts a playlist together that, when finished, means your egg is ready. It’s a small thing but a really nice touch.

I see way too many apps that are packed with “things” and “features” that don’t do any of them very well. Much prefer this single focus / brilliant execution approach.

By CP+B Europe, the app has already been downloaded more than 50,000 times.

This is not human-piloted. The vehicles/ball are tracked by an overhead motion capture system and controlled by a pair of computers.

This amazing ball juggling experiment with quadrotors is at the ETH Flying Machine Arena, by Mark Müller, Sergei Lupashin and Raffaello D’Andrea at IDSC, ETH Zürich, Switzerland
