It may not be the most innovative idea ever, but this live version of Angry Birds was probably really fun to produce. Plus it’s always interesting to see the translation of an online experience into the physical world — it definitely started a party in Barcelona!

On July 24, 2010, YouTube invited people from all over the world to capture glimpses of their lives on camera and upload them to YouTube. The resulting Life in a Day project, directed by Kevin MacDonald and produced by Ridley Scott, weaves together about 1,000 snapshots of people’s lives — out of over 80,000 total submissions — to create a completely user-generated and powerful documentary of daily life.
Tonight the 90-min feature film premieres at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and streams live on YouTube simultaneously (8 p.m. EST). Google Creative Labs also developed a massive touch screen installation featuring all of the videos, including the thousands not shown in the film, that’s currently on display at Sundance in Park City, Utah.

An installation of the new Toyota Auris with Hybrid Synergy Drive uses projection mapping to bring to life the technology within the Auris itself. Glue Isobar used seven projectors to project a CG version of the car onto the real car, allowing observers to walk around the car and experience the effect.
Many worried the building would become an empty blight, but a Toronto architecture firm has turned it into anything but. The park replaces the pool which people could swim in for $7. Now it is more of a monument to Michael Phelps’ recreational habits than his professional ones.
