Climatune by Spotify

Climatune by Spotify

While we certainly can’t control the weather, we can at least decide what we want to listen to—whether we’re slogging it through puddles or embracing the sunshine. To further understand how weather affects listening patterns, Spotify teamed up with AccuWeather to gather data from hundreds of weather stations around the globe and correlatd the data with their own listener habit data to uncover patterns. Climatune is the ridiculousy awesome result.

Wed'ze Goggles Simulator by AKARU

Wed’ze Goggles Simulator by AKARU

While it’s possible to try on different ski goggles in a store, the lighting environment is far from that of what you’d typically encounter while skiing. To simulate the various lens options for their ski goggle collection as if you were on the slopes, Wed’ze teamed up with digital agency AKARU to create this virtual skiing simulator that lets users compare lens styles ahead of time. Genius.

Oimo.js by Saharan

Oimo.js by Saharan

Oimo.js is a lightweight 3d physics engine for JavaScript created by digital craftsman Saharan for actionscript 3.0. From knocking bricks around with a mouse cursor to simulating a tower of bricks getting knocked over by a ball, we haven’t had this much fun with physics since spending last summer doing cannonballs into the pool. For those who are keen with code, a code editor awaits you for even more physics-bending power.

Refresh Studio Homepage by Refresh Studio

To show off their interactive design chops, Norway-based agency Refresh Studio put together this stunning homepage entrance to welcome prospective clients. From the minimal-yet-effective menus to the variation between the entrance ‘experiences’, it’s an absolute killer way to make a strong first impression.
