A Soft Murmur: Ambient sounds

Image for A Soft Murmur: Ambient sounds

Sometimes a little peace in quiet is too much and you need some abmience. A Soft Murmur lets you customize a choice of background noises to fit your needs.

Using volume sliders of different categories, you can perfectly simulate a range of things; from simple white noise to a crowded coffee shop by the ocean during a rainstorm.

A Soft Murmur is available in your web browser or on any Android device.

Give some love to the sadly neglected photos on Instagram which have yet to receive any likes. Of course, keep in mind that many of them have no likes for a good reason.

Tired of fighting over who gets to control the party playlist? Well squabble no more! Playlistful lets users create their own mobile playlists, and then picks fairly between all of them, drawing from YouTube.

How it works:

  1. Set up a computer to your sound system.
  2. Go to Playlistful.com and click "Start a party."
  3. Send your friends the link and have them create song lists on their mobile devices.
  4. Party.

Of course, Playlistful can't do anything about that one guy that always wants to play Wonderwall.

Search via image tags with Unsplash

Image for Search via image tags with Unsplash

Unsplash is a fun little beta project by Arthur Weill that allows users to search for Creative Commons images based on tags. And while my search for "furniture" and "swag" produced no results, a simple search of "coffee" provided me with some really lovely stock photos.

Unsplash is available in English and French.

Program your world with Arduino

Image for Program your world with Arduino

Arduino is a programming platform that allows anyone from a professional programmer to a DIY hobbyist to play around with electronics and make your world more interactive.

According to the website, Arduino is a “an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects.” According to me, this is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. And I spend hours a week hunting for cool stuff on the Internet.
