Really beautiful, and a nice reminder of how robust installation design can be. Also: music by Todd Terje!

A Turing Machine Overview
Just beautiful: an implementation of a Turing Machine, as described by Turing; not only is it ingenious - reading characters written on tape with pen via OCR - but it's also a beautiful piece of hardware; it feels as elegant as the point it is illustrating.

FLOTILLA
Gorgeous retro-styled, genuinely-3D space combat strategy game for PC and (hurrah!) Xbox 360 Indie Games. Love the jaunty, Jetsons-y typefaces, the gentle piano music as combat plays out, the turn structure, and the hints at what's to come in the preview video. (Although: why anyone would make ships with weak bottoms (as opposed to bottoms & tops) in a genuinely 3D game seems strange. Gravity Bone was delightful, so this could be great; will buy it as soon as it's out.

Continuity
Linked almost everywhere by now, but still: a marvellous, marvellous game, dead simple to play, thoughtful, and well-paced. A must-play, really.

Fig. 8 Trailer
"In the game you are rewarded for keeping your tracks together while navigating through the surreal world of an "architectural" diagram. The camera moves in continuous motion and the object is to finish the course with as many points as possible." Watch the trailer; it's astoundingly pretty. Can't wait for this one!

FAST GAMES - Little Wheel
"There was once a world of living robots. But one day a bad accident occured in the main power generator. The world fell into a deep sleep. Bring life back to the world!" Wonderful animation and art design, and a charming little game. It'll take you about 10-20 minutes. It's brilliant.

YouTube - オオカミはブタを食べようと思った。Stop motion with wolf and pig
Beautiful. And: insanely time-consuming; it's not just stop-motion, but two separate pieces of stop motion put together. I love it when they go swimming.

MUTO a wall-painted animation by BLU on Vimeo
After yesterday's stop-motion, this is perhaps even more remarkable and strange. Seriously, it's jaw-droppingly clever; daren't think how long it took.

The shape and the sound: Steph Thirion's iPhone debut, Eliss - Offworld
Gosh, that looks lovely - and bonus points for a preview video that films the iPhone, showing the way fingers work on its surface, rather than just showing the results of interactions.

"Waveform Series is the laser-cut shapes of the waveform of the sound in sound editing software environment. I used some human sound such as yawn, atchoum, giggle, wow, and the sound of church bell." Utterly, utterly gorgeous.

Cabestan: Winch Tourbillion Watch (Monoscope)
"1352 components driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums, prices range from $275k–$400k." Ignoring the price: do want very much.

YouTube - STS-124 Launch w/ Sound
Video from the side of a solidrocket booster from a shuttle launch - through launch, into the atmosphere, separation, and back down to splashdown. Incredible; hypnotic; magical to think that we made that.

"Auditorium is about the process of discovery and play. There are no right or wrong answers; there are many ways to solve every puzzle." Sounds gorgeous; looks beautiful. So much loveliness.

Stephen Hawking to unveil strange new way to tell the time - Telegraph
"He calls the new version of the escapement a 'Chronophage' (time-eater) - "a fearsome beast which drives the clock, literally "eating away time". It is the largest Grasshopper escapement of any clock in the world." Stunning new timepiece for the Corpus library. Breathtakingly beautiful.

BBC - KS2 Bitesize - Games - Questionaut
Lovely. A flash game that combines point-and-click with KS2 revision problems, made by the people who build Samorost. Actually fun; actually educational. And just beautiful to play and listen to.

IndestructoTank A.E. | Armor Games
Awesome: you're a tank. You can't die, but you are the weapon - so you ricochet around the screen from explosions trying to bump into enemies. As you level up, you increase the *number of enemies* which makes big combos easier. Silly, addictive, fun.
