Recently I was pointed to look at a new website - a lights animation to Ellie Goulding's song "Lights".
This website isn't a video, but rather made in real time as you browse through the 3D world of lights. If you post a tweet about the website, then your name will appear in the lights. Clicking on the bubbles will send up a shower of sparks. As you move your mouse, the animation will follow you.
This amazing web display currently only works in modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox), but is well worth a watch.

Once his registration expired, the address went up for auction on the aftermarket, and was bought for AUD$135,000. And the previous owner didn't get to see a cent of it)... Read More
