Flying the Airplane of Tomorrow in 1948 Popular Science Film

PlaneOfTomorrow

Undersea ABC: Alphabet Learning Game for Kids

This is a learning game I programmed quite a few years ago. I’ve rewritten the code so that it should play more smoothly and perhaps be a little easier to read in the test results area.

The game is very simple: Larry Lobster tells you what to do. You just click on the letter bubbles to pick the right ones. A perfect score frees the trapped submarine from the bottom of the ocean.

Next up – an iPad version!

I started this fundraiser for the victims of the earthquake in Nepal on Crowdriser.com. It’s a very simple and direct way of making donations to the American Red Cross so they can give people some very much needed help.
