The World Is Full of Interesting Things

That's the name of a brilliant slideshow created by Google's Creative Labs. You'll find a lot of interesting HTML5 apps, iPhone apps, visualization tools, 3D projections, art projects, creative YouTube videos, crowdsourcing services and many other interesting things.

One of the sites featured in the presentation is Goollery, a collection of Google-related projects from people around the world. There's a keyboard just for Gmail users, the already-famous Newsmap, a beautiful stylesheet for Google Reader and more.


The presentation also highlights Google Chrome's ads, an interactive video for Arcade Fire's "We Used to Wait", a clever way to use YouTube's annotations, Google Street View art and IBM's "Internet of things" video.



Don't forget to check Google's slideshow. "This should keep you busy for the next 24 hours," as Jason Kottke says.

  4. Great until the 'interconnected grid' fails. Interesting world with no phone, no email, no scheduling, etc. Paradoxically the more interconnected we become the more vulnerable we are to catastrophic failure.

  12. amazing possibilities indeed!

    the kind of "conversation" that all those things, devices and human beings will be entering into makes me think of google wave and XMPP protocol straight away as a possible basis on which such conversations could happen from a technical perspective. too bad google sent out a negative signal for this initiative by abandoning their wave client. i really hope the concept will fall into good ground somewhere else!
