Interactive Wonders of the Internet

If you think you've seen everything the internet can do, think again. This 80's invention is still evolving and soon enough, just watching a video will be as obsolete as using a floppy disk.

Play the Xylophone

This motion controlled xylophone works like the Xbox 360 Kinect and only works with Google Chrome. Once there, your browser will ask permission to turn on your camera and microphone. Then you can play the instrument by waving your hands. Of course you can also use your head, your elbows, your feet, or even your tongue if that would make you happier.

We're absolutely going to see more of this technology soon. By that time, we could probably play Xbox Kinect or Wii U games on our computers with it.

Jam with Terry Crews' Muscles

If you don't like Terry Crews or his muscles, then don't even bother with this one. 

This interactive video is part of Old Spice's very clever marketing ploy. First, Terry plays all the instruments around him with the use of his muscles. After watching him jam solo, you get to play with the instruments using your keyboard, which is kind of unfair because you only have 10 fingers while Terry has at least 20 muscles to do it. You can even record, review and share your masterpiece.

It has a great playlist, (not some mainstream music) and an amazing artwork that changes as you move your mouse or cursor. It's like a sound equalizer rhythm display... only snazzier.

This site teaches you what is and how to make imitation milk, for all the good it does.

Apparently, there are three different ways to make imitation milk and you can help doing it through this interactive video. You can crack the coconut, pop out the beans, and do other stuff that you would never have even thought of doing if you hadn't known imitation milk. 

But that ain't awesome enough. Perhaps if they put something in it that would enable us to control what's happening in the computer using a mobile device then---

Oh shit, it does.

After this, you can ask yourself, "So what?"

For a marketing stunt, this one is pretty useful because it measures and enhances your safety awareness.   

It has 10 questions like where to put fire alarms in the house and which insects you hate to see in your home which you can answer by clicking or dragging elements on the screen. Between each exercise, they insert all the boring marketing stuff, but you'll always be given the option to decline.

If you're still playing Farmville, for crying out loud, move out and visit Sunnyville. It's an interactive neighborhood packed with activities and tips about taking care of your home, cooking, gardening, mowing your lawn and even...

playing with a dancing bear?

Time to leave your poultry, swine and bovine.

If you know something more awesome than the ones on this list, be kind enough to share. We're starting to get bored with this lot.
