…Whitoken gives your iPod Touch a second life?


Like everything Apple, the iPod Touch’s design is a study in simplistic beauty.

However, as with most things tech, there are those that just can’t help but tinker, which is why one crafty designer named 6mik has created a theme for jailbroken iPod Touches called Whitoken that gives a whole new look and feel to the default interface. (And reminds me a lot of Marvin the Paranoid Android from Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.)

GamesByEmail.com needed a way to create thousands of dice rolls each day that would be equally random, so it created the Dice-O-Matic, a machine that is able to randomly roll up to 1.3 million die per day!

The machine is surprisingly simple, and uses a central conveyor belt that runs up a column to lift the dice past a camera, which records the numbers, and then down a chute where they roll and tumble to ensure complete randomness:

And you thought your 20-sided D&D dice were difficult to handle!

…Don’t Look Back is an artsy game?

Don't Look Back

Don’t Look Back is a surprisingly fun game that’s as much art and story telling as it is gameplay.

The controls and the visuals are simple, but each ‘level’ has its own feel, so you’ll need to learn as you go and adapt to the world around you.

Just remember, don’t look back.

…It’s TGI Friday: The Best Paper Airplane In The World?

Best Paper Airplane In The World

This weekend, spend a few minutes working your way through the 35 steps involved in folding the world’s most perfect paper airplane:

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can then move on to making an alternative T-tail design, making it legal to fly in the world record paper airplane competition, making a Guinness World Records compliant tail, and more.

It’s definitely not the most advanced project, but sometimes it’s fun just to unplug from the rest of the world for a little bit and focus on the simple things in life.
