Please switch off your Sat Nav

A sign asking people to switch off their SatNav

Increasingly the downsides of people's reliance on technology become evident. Now that a large percentage of cars have satellite navigation, more and more drivers just follow the calculated shortest routes. Not a very pleasant notion if you happen to live in a small village between popular places and have a road connecting these places going through your rural community.

Really nice online game in Flash / Papervision

Editing view and in the inset an in-game image

I came across a very nicely created Flash game in which you can design and fly your own toy airplanes. There is also a community where you can view, fly, rate and even adapt each others planes. The site was created by Less Rain and you can read about the design process on their blog. They used an open source 3D engine for Flash called Papervision. I have been playing around with it, so maybe I will put some nice animation up here as well.
