Examples of fun digital tools wanted

I'm working on an article about produtainment in interactive design,
that is, products that are designed to be useful and playful at the
same time.

Do you know any digital products that combine tool and toy in the very
same product? Please let me know.

I've managed to find these two examples:

- Dabbler (a discontinued drawing application).

[F2F] IxDA meeting: Mar 10, 19H30 - Fringe Club HK (MTR Central Exit D2)

Sending a reminder to the global list in case there is anyone new around.


Dear all,

It's time for another gathering on Tue, Mar 10. Our monthly meetings
had some breaks, but I guess the busy life of HK justifies that.

Where: Fringe Club HK (MTR Central Exit D2)
When: 7.30pm, Tue, Mar 10

The format will be casual, but all are encouraged to bring something
to discuss -- recent work, an interesting topic, a question.

I'll share my insights from the Interaction Design conference in
Vancouver (5-8 Feb).

The Black Art of Usability

One of my favorite whitepapers is The Essence of Effective Rich Internet Applications by Kevin Mullet of Macromedia (2003). It provides a nice POV relevant to UX, Design and IA related disciplines. One thing that always stuck with me was this portion of it:

“Usability has always been the most difficult quality to instill in software design. It sits at the
junction of form and function to constrain and inform the design of both aspects of the

Re: [IxDA] The Next Generation of Flash User Experience

That's an interesting proof-of-concept. Right now it's unusably slow, which I suppose is what you get for on-the-fly bytecode munging. I have doubts as to whether you'd ever be able to do the kind of high-speed real-time stuff that people write Flash/FLEX for, but possibly a cross-compiler would work.

good examples of stacked / "window blind" left nav

I need some good examples of this to show a client I am proposing this
solution to.

I know a lot of people are starting to do this, but I need some examples
of successful implementations in order to get them on board.
