Here are some amazing random cool stuff that I found on the internet this week - just click and enjoy
Thanks for reading!
1. Camel Camel Camel - This website, surprisingly, has nothing to do with camels. It’s an easy to use Amazon price tracker. Throw in a url for an Amazon product and it tells you how the price has changed over the years. You might realise you’re buying at the wrong time.
2. The Secret Door - It won’t open into a dark nook at Hogwarts, but it can take you to equally unexpected places around the world. The idea is simple—open the secret door and let Google’s Street View transport you to an interesting place on the globe. Think of it as a portal for virtual globetrotting. And if you don’t like it, just click the Take Me Somewhere Else button. This Google inspired cure for boredom definitely ranks as one of the more fun ways to use Google Maps and Street View.
3. Museum of Endangered Sounds - Want a dose of serious nostalgia? Maybe, the sound of a dial-up modem will do it for you or the dial of a rotary phone. The Museum of Nostalgia will send you back in time. The single-person effort from Brendan Chilcutt aims to preserve the signature sounds of old technologies.
4. Sketch Something Daily - Creativity is the magic pill to zap boredom. Sketch Something Daily is one of the artistic things to do online when bored. So, pick up a pencil, pen, or even a paintbrush, and test yourself with the daily illustrations on the site.
5. Innovation Station - This is a little known but cool website to go to when you’re bored. It showcases the latest videos on innovation and futuristic technologies. It is a wonderful learning platform. As their charter says, “We aim to inspire and educate by putting innovations and innovators in the spotlight.”
