Have a Ball

Check out this cute (and addictive) little game from Josh Nimoy:


What’s most impressive, IMHO, is that it’s written entirely in JavaScript using the canvas object (sorry IE fans).

And in that vein, it serves as a good test of each of the current browsers’ rendering engines.

While FF 3.01 performance is spotty, Safari’s current release really tears it up (most likely because canvas is a native Apple element).  I imagine since the app was written to show off Chrome’s JS engine, that Chrome also performs beautifully.

Alright, enough nerdiness.  It’s a game. It’s fun. You should play it :)

Thanks VSL!

Impressive Coding Feats

Amazing. Jacob Seidelin took the data from the Radiohead House of Cards video (made using lasers and data points rather than filmed) and made a JavaScript based visualizer using the Canvas object.

Even if what I just said was all Greek to you (I barely understand it myself), you’ll have fun playing with the visualizer.  Check it out:
