Another week down, another load of work completed and another set of awesome ideas from the Young & Shand lot for you to cast your discerning eyes across.

We kick off with Izac’s helpful HTML 5 index – http://html5doctor.com/element-index/

Also from Izac comes this website that answers your “does it have an API?” questions – http://www.programmableweb.com/apis/directory/

Need to know the exact dimensions of any mobile phone or tablet? Here’s what Woodsy’s found that makes things a whole lot easier – http://stefhatcher.com/projects/device-dimensions/

He also showed us an index of sci fi movie user interfaces. Amazingly geeky and cool at the same time – http://www.noteloop.com/kit/fui/movie/

Monsters, Inc was an awesome movie and we hear Monsters University is just as good. Suzy found this cute little app that lets you create little monsters. Have a play – http://disney.go.com/monsters-university/create-a-monster/

Suzy also showed us this website that teaches you all about the construction of the Eiffel Tower – http://disney.go.com/monsters-university/create-a-monster/

Anna showed us Red Bull’s latest fun video that’s gone ‘viral’ – http://www.digitalbuzzblog.com/red-bull-danny-macaskills-imaginate/

She also presented this live Like counter. We’d all love one of these for our brands – http://www.digitalbuzzblog.com/fliike-the-facebook-fan-counter-object/

I presented the most creative use of a urinal I’ve ever seen – http://www.springwise.com/rio-partygoers-encouraged-urinals-music/

I also introduced everyone to this site that pitches Vine up against Instagram video – http://vinevsinstagram.com/

On the topic of Instagram, here’s Skyler’s find – an Instagram account that documents all the prohibited items that people have tried to smuggle into the US – http://instagram.com/tsablogteam/#

Skyler also presented a really interesting piece from Leo Burnett that reminds us that ads can sometimes be art – http://adsoftheworld.com/blog/leo_burnett_wins_the_4as_truthbrief_competition

One more from Skyler – here’s Heineken’s latest, exciting campaign – http://www.adweek.com/adfreak/heineken-dares-jfk-travelers-ditch-their-plans-press-button-and-board-flight-parts-unknown-1

Michal showed us this fun iPad application for kids – http://www.creativeapplications.net/cinder/dirti-for-ipad-tapioca-interface-for-ios/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%253A+creativeapplicationsnet+%2528CreativeApplications.Net%2529

He also presented Abracadapp, a Moleskine app that’s an analog app for your mobile phone. Watch the vid to see what we’re talking about – http://www.abracadabrapp.com/

Here’s a clever way to compare online fonts that Carla showed us – http://tiff.herokuapp.com/

She also showed a heat tracking service for your websites – http://www.crazyegg.com/#.

New recruit Gustavo presented this on simpler UI testing – http://blog.newrelic.com/2013/06/04/simpler-ui-testing-with-casperjs-2/
