This time, it’s impressive web demos using complex animation algorithms and basic browser tools. Oh, and an ML post.

Realistic Terrain in 130 JS lines – Pretty impressive demo. I’m still not sure what goes on with the code because of the all the WebGL & physics involved. However, it shows how far one can go with simple browser tools.

Creating 3D worlds with HTML & CSS – It seems like the new fad is doing nearly everything in basic CSS(3) that was done with JS before. This demo reminds me of countless hours wasted on CS:CZ.

Neural Networks, Manifolds & Topology – Good article with impressive visualizations to see what goes underneath NN’s hidden layers. It’s not uncommon to hear hidden layers referred to as black-boxes, however the article sheds some light underneath the hood.
