May 11, 1929: An international Rhönrad contest in Würtzberg, Germany. The Rhönrad, or German wheel, was invented in 1925 and apparently shown at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, but was not entered as an official sport. Photo: The New York Times

science:


A Slower Speed of Light is a free little game from the MIT Game Lab. It visually demonstrates the effects of relativity. You move around in the first person picking up orbs which slow down the speed of light—the effect being that your normal walking speed inches ever closer to light speed. When you move faster—or light moves slower—colors begin to morph as the invisible shifts into the visible spectrum, until finally time and space themselves start bending. Very trippy, but based on real physics.

OK, this is just delightful.

Around here, we stare at boring old audio waveforms all day long…this is a much better approach.

If you’re interested in color theory, or you like beautifully-designed little games, or you just feel like being bad at something today (OH MY GOD SLOW DOWN TOO MANY COLORS), try this.
