These are linked to everywhere already, but since I think they show a possible trend in future software/AI, here they are. Smart Sites. They aren’t amazing, but they have open ended input and try to react no matter what you type. It’s not a new concept, but with more powerful computers and people with more time, I think they’ll become more popular:
1. The Subservient Chicken – Sponsored by Burger King this is an odd chicken that does “stuff.” You can tell him to do pretty much anything.
2. Let them sing it for you – Type in the lyrics and have famous people sing it back to you.
Right now, it’s only two. I’m sure there are plenty of others, if you know of them, feel free to post them in the comments.
