Website Reviews - July 2021

Exploring the wonderful world of the internet? Check out these sites that we find quite useful.
A website that shows a collection of images all with one theme: taking an old favourite photograph and going back to the same spot from which it was taken, and taking another while holding the old photograph within the frame. Each photograph also has a dedication captioning resulting picture. What you get is a small wormhole that brings the past into the present, taken all over the world by people willing to share their memories.
Wolfram Alpha is the awesome artificially intelligent graphing calculator that you wish you had in high school. Want to know what a function looks like? Done. Want to see how to solve an equation, step by step? It’s easy. Want to know the nutrition facts of a 100g of fried chicken? Not a problem. Wolfram Alpha has a bizarrely broad and sophisticated suite of features, and is the student’s best friend.
The BioDigital Human represents the most sophisticated, interactive, 3D virtual human body platform available. This medically-accurate virtual body map allows users to explore detailed anatomy, fitness, and health conditions, remove layers to visualise animated diseases’ progress, and virtually take a tour of the human body. It can be used by educators, aspiring medical professionals, or just the generally curious alike.
Have you ever wanted to just splatter paint everywhere, purely because it’s fun? Now you can! This website is perfect if you are having a really tedious day, or you really just want to unwind and have some fun. At first, you may think that your computer isn’t loading the website, but it already has. The blank white screen is yours to have fun with. Move your mouse around to splatter paint, or left click to change the colour. Despite its simplicity, it’s surprisingly diverse and incredibly addictive.
