For the weekend:

  • Sometimes, it’s the silliest of things that are the best way to spend a weekend. Flipnote Studio, recently released on the Nintendo DSi for download, allows people to create simple animations, which can then be uploaded to a youtube-like service for general viewing.

    Spend a few hours at the Flipnote Gallery and be amazed at the quality that people can create with the simplest of tools.
