The Denny

The Denny has integrated brake lights and turn signals, a no maintenance belt drive instead of a chain, and a removable handle bar that doubles as a bike lock. Sensors tied to a microprocessor can detect if the cyclist is struggling up a hill and automatically downshift or upshift to make an easier ride. The technology is also tied to an eAssist battery-powered motor in the front hub that kicks in when the bike is going uphill.

Google Chrome DevTools Device Mode

chrome-devtools-devicemode2

Click the icon marked with the pink-ish circle to open Device Mode. Click the icon marked with the red circle to activate the Media Query Inspector. One can quickly choose a device and also throttle the network using the blue and orange dropdowns at the top.

You might have to Devtools Expirements in Canary via chrome://flags/#enable-devtools-experiments to see all this.

A Spacecraft for All

aspacecraftforall

The ISEE-3 was launched to study the Sun in 1978, but ended up redefining space flight. Now it’s on a new mission to become citizen science’s first spacecraft, with data accessible by everyone.

Very cool mission, with a very neat website. A must watch.

Hyperlapse

We present a method for converting first-person videos, for example, captured with a helmet camera during activities such as rock climbing or bicycling, into hyperlapse videos: time-lapse videos with a smoothly moving camera.

Waves – Click effect inspired by Google’s Material Design

waves

When clicking an item, Waves injects a <div> on top of the clicked item, yet at scale(0). Using a transition, the growing effect is achieved after – via JavaScript – setting a new scale value.

CriticalCSS

lab-perf-fgcritical

Critical CSS opens a page in a browser from the command line, sets the window width to a specified width and height (default is 1200 x 900), and analyzes which styles are applied to elements that fall within the visible portion of that viewport. It then writes those styles to a file that you can include inline in any page.

Breach – A browser for the HTML5 era

breach

Entirely written in Javascript. Free. Modular. Hackable.

From a technological point of view I find this very impressive. Interesting first use experience, explaining how it works. Uses Chromium as its rendering engine. Tagline should be A browser from the HTML5 era though, I think.
