Chrome Experiment has been coming out with heaps of incredible HTML5 canvas and javascript experiments. Thanks to all the awesome developers, most of the experiments are truly unique and jaw dropping. I could never imagine with the combination HTML and javascript can achieve such an amazing result. Take Tank World as an example, stunning 3d graphic, and it's a game! However, it will take year before most of the modern browsers fully support them, and also, I can feel the slowness when the browser loads and renders the graphic. So in the mean time, flash is still the best solution for intensive animation and web based game development.

Check out the list, preferably with Google Chrome. Mind you, some of them are pretty addictive :)

  • Untangle HTML Canvas and Javascript Experiement - UntanglePosition the blue dots such that no lines overlap. How quickly can you solve it? :)

  • Conductor HTML Canvas and Javascript Experiement - ConductorConductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 diagram.
  • Bacterium HTML Canvas and Javascript Experiement - BacteriumA physics aquarium where you can create colorful and dynamic movement patterns.
  • Ultra Neuron Pong HTML Canvas and Javascript Experiement - Ultra Neuron PongUltra Neuron Pong is a concept game based on the classic Pong game that we all know. This time however, the computer paddle is entirely controlled by a neural network. This computer brain is also a game element: you can shoot the neural net to dumb the computer down.

Awesome stuff. I agree though there seems to be far to much going on about HTML 5 at the moment.
