This Exquisite Forest is a collaborative storytelling tool. Inspired by the Surrealist drawing game of “exquisite corpse,” the site allows anyone to start an animation tree by drawing a series of short frames — a “seed” — or add on to an existing tree. The project, from Google’s Data Arts team, is also temporarily installed in the Tate Modern in London.
Check out some popular trees here and here and here.

Nubot is a doll ready to host smartphone video chats via Skype.
The remote user can control the doll’s body gestures (wave, bow, turn) giving them more of a physical presence.
The folks at Nuuo that developed Nubot use it to have teleconferences between their offices.
We’ve seen a more mobile, albeit less cute, telepresence robot named Texai in the past.

Continuing the Internet self-education theme, “Don’t Fear the Internet” is another great resource bank of instructional videos that explain how the Internet works and teach some basic coding.
The project was cooked up by designers and it, in their words, will “help demystify html and css coding so you can prettify your blogs and quit asking your nerd friends for freebies!”

Let’s face it… Kinect hacks continue to be cool. Here’s an elegant one for a music video for the singer BELL, which uses the motion senser and a projector to display elegant designs on her face.

Another Chrome experiment from Google, All Is Not Lost features the band OK Go and members of the dance troupe Pilobolus. Filmed from below a glass floor, bodies move and press against the glass (in seafoam green unitards, no less) to form kaleidoscopic shapes and your personalized inspirational message to Japan.
The online video was first shot in 3D and made possible by HTML5 — hence Google’s connection and endorsement of Chrome as the preferred browser. While it kind of feels like it could have been cooler, the video is reminiscent of the captivating, multi-window viewing experiences of the Wilderness Downtown and Soul-Mirror.

8-Bit Invaders is just a simulation, but seems like a stellar idea to project a video game on building. Making it playable would be even cooler.
