…Claytorial wants to help you understand?


Claytorial is the claymation version of Common Craft, and their goal is to “help people understand complicated things”.

Their first demo is for a magazine called More2Girls, and it shows off what they’ve got in store, though I can’t wait to see what they can with a concept like the Google spider, which is currently in their upcoming section.

For now though, it’s a great start, and a good look at an area that I think we’ll see a lot of in the coming year. (Explanations for complex technologies and services in simple and easy to understand ways.)


…You don’t have the balls to cook with testicles?

Testicle Cookbook

The Testicle Cookbook will have you cooking with balls in no time.


Serbian chef Ljubomir Erovic is releasing the book, which is sure to cause quite a bit of controversy as it shares his favorite testicle treats, such as Testicle Pizza, Testicle Goulash and White Wine Testicles.

According to chef Erovic,

    “The tastiest testicles in my opinion probably come from bulls, stallions or ostriches, although other people have their own favourites.”

In addition, testicles are rich in testosterone and are believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac in countries such as Serbia and China.

Again, to quote chef Erovic,

    “The best for aphrodisiac properties are sheep and stallion testicles.”

Don’t for a second think that Erovic is a nut off the street though. Since 2004, he as been the organizer behind the World Testicle Cooing Championship, held annually in Serbia, which draws in chefs from Australia, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Norway and Serbia. During the competition, over one metric tonne of testicles are prepared.

Think you’ve got what it takes to grab the bull by the balls and test out these recipes?

Don’t say I didn’t warn you:

…It’s TGI Friday: Defender Of The Favicon?

Defender Of The Favicon

Defender Of The Favicon is definitely the smallest game ever featured on DYH.

Designed as a test to see how far you can push the concept of a generated favicon, the idea was to pack a retro shooter into 16×16 pixels using JavaScript, Canvas and Data: URIs

From start to finish, the game took just three nights to complete.

To get everything working: Each frame is generated on the fly in JavaScript into a 16×16 canvas element, then converted to a 32bits PNG images and used in place of the Favicon.

    The game logic isn’t really complex but remains true to the original Defender and provides enough action for 16×16 pixels. The original game mechanics would make Defender of the favicon insanely difficult. Therefore a few adjustments were done : none of the enemies fire at you, your Defender got upgraded with a shield, and finally the Landers do not mutate into unstoppable war machines after abducting a humanoid but wander in your general direction.

…Invasion Tactical Defense lets you save the world?

Invasion Tactical Defense

Invasion Tactical Defense is an impressively complex Flash game where your goal is to protect a nuclear factory from an attacking alien race.

To play, you buy cannons, upgrade the factory, and deploy personnel.

Sounds simple, right?

Well, it’s not.

Thankfully, the game’s designers have added in plenty of settings to tweak and tune as you try to find the right mix, and even then it’s not an easy win, so give it a shot and see what you can do.

The world depends on it.

Caution: The site requires you to register to play, so be prepared to create an account.
