Feb-2010 Must-watch Videos: Skinput, OK Go, Youtube 101 & Chatroulette

The nature of the internet is filled with a lot of information and seeing it animated and simplified visual is certainly a blessing, since it opens our mind to new ways to see our world. Whether it’s through maps, info-graphs or psychedelic illustrations videos on the web surely added a much needed freshness to information and data on the web.

Hopefully with more bandwidth we will see more innovation in this field but for now we can enjoy some recent videos that have been noticed on the web by the Thoughtpick bloggers:

Skinput

Think of the possibilities for this one! This is actually a working prototype for the ultimate in mobile computing. Add a Wi-Fi capability to it, and make it as sexy and small as an iPod and you got yourself a decade long hit. Now I might find it difficult not to mention that I would find it uncomfortable to hold my arms in a fixed position for too long. Although it is slightly different it and definitely reminds me of Sixthsense technology.

Chatroulette by Numbers

If you are a girl that wants some instant attention then the best place to be is on Chatroulette, and if you are lucky you might get someone to sing a song for you. I have to admit that I’m thoroughly fascinated by it and I’m quite sure that while the mainstream buzz might die off in a few months the website will still attract a cult of followers.

Procrastination

You know a thing or two about it, that actually might be the reason you are reading this in the first place. Social media has been the bane of all procrastinators around the world.
