I recently stumbled upon this neat little web-based game LOLWUT by interactive developer Michael Anthony (with graphical help from Che McPherson) and was sufficiently impressed that I had to preserve the moment in this post. ┬áThe game is simple enough but what makes it impressive is while it may look like Flash, it is actually a clever combination of CSS3 tweens and jQuery. Is this the answer to Adobe Flash that Apple is hoping for? Maybe. But ironically, the game didn’t play well on my iPad. I know it serves my inner geek but I do love finding sites that push the envelope on emerging technologies in fun and interesting ways.

Along the same vein, you can see a more practical application of similar effects at Think Green Meeting.
