This is not strictly ‘Multiplatform’ news.. It is however extremely funny and this is my blog so I can post whatever inane rubbish I want to!
In all seriousness though, this is a great example of how BBC Comedy have got their content all over the place, this is from Beebo, but there is also a great BBC Comedy website called Comedy Shuffle where they find up and coming talent and showcase it online and also on BBC Three on Thursday nights at 11PM. Its a good example of going to where the talent are and giving them a platform to shine as opposed to getting talent to come to them and then changing the fundamental uniqueness that made them funny in the first place.

Sometimes I find myself looking around the web for some interesting news story that could make perfect fodder for a Multiplatform project. Something to share with the rest of the team so we can throw around some thoughts and get all stimulated (the work safe kind of stimulated!).
Having stumbled upon this video of a robotic exoskeleton, I have come to realise that sometimes real life is far crazier than anything I could make up. If I’d had to bet money I’d have thought it was promotional material for a sci-fi movie but it turns out it will probably end up on a battlefield somewhere.
It’s all very reminiscent of Sigourney Weavers ‘Power Loader’ in Aliens. Another example of life imitating art. Lets just hope life doesn’t imitate the face eating Aliens next.
Ok, so I’m not talking about the 1980 Mike Hodges film… Although I could… for hours. Max Von Sidow is the campest evil deathlord to grace the silver screen ever. It’s a fact.
Anyway, the point of this post is to share some great flash website links (a-ha, you see the tenuous link now?!) that I have come across in the past couple of days whilst doing some research. There’s not much more to say really other than it still amazes me the great stuff designers are doing with flash. The innovation in some of the stuff I’ve been seeing is staggering and very impressive.
The sites I’m sharing all offer something, whether it be smart use of audio, innovative navigation or great design. What they all share, in my opinion, is a strong balance between innovation and technology with great content. The user experience and the way in which they interface with the site is key to their coolness.
If any of you know of some great flash sites please share the love.
