The internet has once again provided us with useful and/or interesting things that lives rent free in our collective consciousness.
- With the holidays around the corner, here's someone who's made a streaming device for GameBoys. It is an adapter that goes between an unmodified Game Boy and the cartridge and offers a video stream of the game via USB. Turns out to be a heck of a complicated project, and you can read it yourself here.
- Is it over-complicated, or simply complicated? Ben Lorantfy, a developer in Ontario, has some choice words debating it.
Design of the week
- EVERYONE that works in branding and design struggles with their own branding and design, except monopo.
- A case video, no less, on how to go about designing a music composition app. It's 46 minutes long, which is slightly longer than the 5 minute attention span. But hey, let's make it a competition and see who gets further.
- Can't end the design section without something that takes away our jobs. Here's ChatGPT generating fully functional SVG icons that you can paste into Figma. Chills.
Tech of the week
- Finally reaching 1.0, SvelteKit is a framework for building web applications on top of Svelte, a UI component framework that developers love for its performance and ease of use.
- AI use cases is exploding these days, at a much faster pace than our mere human brains are able to digest. Thankfully, There's An AI For That promises to catalogue them daily.
- Stable Diffusion generates images from text (zzz). But what if you use it to generate images from spectrograms, and then convert it to audio? Enter Riffusion. This cacophony might be the sound of AI. What a future, folks.
- Lastly, for those who haven't already found a way out of Twitter, check out Movetodon, the service that migrates you out of one messy place to another.
Also, merry xmas to Petter and Mr. W, our faithful readers.
