Ad agency BigMan’s website is one of coolest we’ve seen; the interface is dominated by a Big Man (of course) and lots of flashing, sliding bits of text: kinda like Times Square on crack.
Sean Cooper’s addictive Boxhead is a free flash game with clean, crisp artwork and waves of zombies; if that wasn’t enough, they also have co-op and death match modes.
It’s not quite Monday Night, but you can catch Sunday Night Football with Madden and Co. for free online; now if they could only get Frank Caliendo in on the action, we’d be good.
Stormpulse is a visual web app that lets you keep track of storms and hurricanes brewing in the Atlantic. It forecasts direction and wind speed, but also shows historical storms.
This is one deck you won’t thrash: DolceQ’s sexy skateboards are actually printed by Deckpeck. They allow artists to create their own custom decks and wheels as well as sell them.
Canyon Defense isn’t the only Tower Defense-style game, but it’s quite fun, with good graphics and futuristic weapons. Our only complaint is that it is a bit easy; more levels, por favor.
Onion Maps initially reminds us of Google Earth, minus many features — but its simplicity and focus on isometric views works, especially for tourists who just want landmarks.
Sonny is a fun and free Flash-based RPG a-la Final Fantasy; you start off as an amnesiac zombie armed with an iron pipe. The production values are surprisingly high.
Just launched: Google’s brand-new browser, Google Chrome. It aims to minimize memory bloat (you can selectively shut down tasks) and is lightweight, with a 500KB install file.
3D printing is here: Philips’ Shapeways site will take just about any 3D model you submit and “print” it using one of four materials; they charge by the cubic centimeter.
PatternTap.com is a boon to web designers; it compiles examples of common website parts (borders, comments, backgrounds). It’s a great place to get ideas and inspiration.
Springfield Punx is a pet project of artist Dean Fraser; he does an amazing job creating Simpsons styled versions of popular superheroes and celebs. Our fave: The Dark Knight‘s Joker.
Star Trek Online has a trailer up, and man are we excited: lots of stuff gets blowed up real good. Note: download the hi-res trailer if you can; the YouTube trailer just doesn’t do it justice.
Concept Ships is stuffed to the brim with spaceship and experimental aircraft art. Be warned: if you have even the slightest interest in future tech, you’ll easily waste hours here.
Urbanspoon’s iPhone app works like a virtual magic eight ball, except it brings up restaurant suggestions and reviews. Awesome: a map showing people shaking their phones.
There can never be too many food websites. Open Source Food remixes progressive copyright attitudes with yummy in my tummy. True to form, recipes come with a Creative Commons license.
It’s been a long time in the making, but Delicious 2.0 has finally launched. The social bookmarking service has added *gasp* graphics and more colors! It’s more intuitive, too. Aww yeah.
After voluntarily taking down Facebook app Scrabulous due to Hasbro’s legal threats, brothers J. and R. Agarwalla have re-launched less than 48 hours later under a new moniker: Wordscraper.
