Do you like music? Do you like entropy? Do you have Spotify? If so, then go here
to listen to a song chosen completely at random. It might even be good!

Web developer Justin Watt
was staying at the Courtyard Marriott in Times Square, New York
and using the hotel wifi to access the Internet. He noticed some strangeness on his website... and on every other website he visited
(not to mention YouTube was broken.)

is an Internet resource that brings genuine
random numbers, generated
by a process fundamentally governed by the inherent uncertainty in the quantum mechanical laws of nature, directly to your computer in a variety of forms. HotBits
are generated by timing successive pairs of radioactive decays detected
by a Geiger-Müller tube interfaced to a computer. (Warning: random sounds.)

Goodbye everyone, Since there has been discussion regarding whether or not my posts to this community are relevant, I have decided to no longer post here. I've enjoyed my time here...meeting a lot of you, but I simply find this community's rules too restrictive, and since I write what I feel, without regard to content (Is it sexist? Is it parental? Is it political? Is it, God forbid, all three??), this community will only end up stifling my originality, and I have no intentions of letting myself be censored in this way. i hope you fall off your soap box someday and bust your ass. i'm out of here
. i am not sad about it either.

The Ad Generator
is a generative artwork that explores how advertising uses and manipulates language. What it actually does is that it randomizes words and structures from real advertising slogans and pairs them with related images from Flickr, generating fake ads on the fly.

Be. The. Battery.
A brilliantly simple concept will allow anyone who needs (a small amount of)
power to generate their own just by walking around while wearing this special backpack. By mounting the pack's load on springs connected to a rack and pinion device that is, in turn, connected to a small generator, the wearer's natural walking motion can generate up to 7.4 watts of power. Plenty enough to keep your Nofriendo DS charged. Or your sniper rifle's night scope.
The bonus? By having the pack's load on springs, the backpack is more comfortable and ergonomic than a traditional backpack too.

are words or phrases that can be read in more than one way or from more than a single vantage point, most commonly right-side-up and upside-down. Ambigram.Matic
is the world's first and only online Ambigram Generator! Flip any word, different words of the same length, or even an entire (symmetrically spaced) sentence on its head, and read it both ways!
