Really Good Hyperlinks #1 - Dec 11th

Welcome to the first of a regular weekly tech.tmw post, that we've inventively called 'Really Good Hyperlinks', where we attempt to filter out some of the finest links we've seen over the past week on the web.

So without further ado, let's get started:

Demos

PolyMaker

Hot on the heels of redesigning his website, Paul Lewis has released this great canvas demo in which the user can generate their very own 3D shape by plotting 4 points on the screen.

Robo-boogie

Practice your dance moves before hitting the town with this demo from Code Club, with which you can alter the angle and speed of animations performed by a dancing robot.

TMW links worth mentioning
