WOBBLE CATS

Wobble Cats is just good old fashioned fun on the internet. All you do is click, drag, and create a wobbly cat masterpiece. The brain behind this brilliant idea is Kyle Stetz, an engineer who works over at Slack. He also created the Type Drummer where you can make beats with your keyboard. Have fun!

The program includes book clubs, themed activities, and raffles. To promote the Summer of Wonder, they released a collection of awesome vintage posters from the 1950’s to 1970’s.

BILLY PENN GETS A BATH

Did you know that the William Penn statue on top of City Hall weighs 26.5 tons? For the past 6 weeks, Billy has been covered up in scaffolding due to a deep cleaning and restoration process. The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy released a before and after photo of the conservation process and it’s pretty incredible.

NOSTALGIC APP

The Gudak Cam app is reminiscent of a Kodak disposable camera (remember those?) where you receive a roll of 24 exposures that you take through a small viewfinder. Once you’re done snapping the photos, the next step is sending them to the “Processing Laboratory”. After 3 days of developing you receive a notification that your photos are ready to be viewed. If you’re into nostalgia, you can find Gudak in the app store for $0.99.
