Follow the Blue Ball

Blue Ball Machine: This is amazing. I watched a single ball for two or three minutes as it ran through the various machines. It’s a repeating 500 x 500px background image — a big animated GIF.

The music is perfect. I want that playing in my office all day. Via Kottke.



  1. The music SHOULD be perfect: it’s “Breakfast Machine” by Danny Elfman from Tim Burton’s first Hollywood production, “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”.

  2. I want that playing in my office all day.

    And the computer it was playing on would be crushed to little bits by your office mates after the first two hours. ;o)
