Top 10 COOL Websites
Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you the Top 10 COOL Websites. All of these websites can be accessed with ease by visiting the links below in the video description. I’ll also visit each website and give you a quick little preview of each website and why it has earned a spot on my top 10 list. So here we go!
(Website gives you stats about your life)
This is a website that allows you to input your birthday and it will give you a full report and various stats about your existence so far. From the # of seconds you’ve been alive since your birth, to the # of heart beats up and # of breaths you’ve taken up until the very second. What I found also interesting about this website is that after inputting your birthday, when you scroll down it also includes some interesting facts like the distance you’ve traveled as the earth revolves around the sun, as well as many events that occurred on the exact day you were born, the first year you were alive, all the way up to your present age. This website also allows you to create a report for your friend or family member and share it with them. And for all of the reasons listed above, this website deserves the #10 spot on the list and I advise you to check it out!
This website is a hidden gem. Although upon visiting the website, for the first 5 seconds most people wouldn’t understand its use. But what this is is a ticking, digital clock that tells you what time it is in hexadecimal color code. If you don’t know what hexadecimal color code is, it’s basically a color specified according to the RGB map. This is in the format of: #RRGGBB.
RR (red), GG (green) and BB (blue) are hexadecimal integers between 00 and FF specifying the intensity of the color. So as the time changes using the 24hour clock method, the background color of the website changes as well. Very cool indeed. This website earns the #8 spot on the list.
Meteroshowers.org is a website that shows future projections of meteor showers that are expected to be seen from earth on a set date in the future. Using the tool in the upper left-hand corner of the website’s interface allows you to view different types of meteor showers and when they’ll occur throughout the year. This website has earned its spot as # 8 on the list, as I feel that it’d be an awesome discovery for those wanting to see an actual meteor shower in real life!
Now these ones for all the travellers out there. This is a cool website that provides you with a map that displays all of the best places to visit in the world on any given week based on weather. Just simply go to the homepage, input the week at which you are planning your travel plans and adjust the parameters for your desired temperature, and voila! Now you have a huge, plethora of options for wonderful travel destinations so you can feel at most comfortable in your experience. Travel the world and end up in heaven. I’m giving this site, the #7.
This website is both very informative and a bit disheartening, to say the least. Willrobotstakemyjob.com shows you the likelihood of whether or not your job will be replaced by AI technology or shall I say, “automation” based on a percentage factor. I already mentioned in a blog post on my blog that by the year 2020 it is projected that robots will replace 5 million human jobs. And that’s just 3 years away from now. Imagine what would happen a decade from now. The numbers would be staggering and no one really knows the absolute solution for when such a crisis could occur. The good news is that great minds like Elon Musk have already been trying to come up with solutions. One of many being known as a “universal basic income”, but that’s for another video. However, I feel like this website could also be a benefit to millions if they use it in the right way. That is, to find the jobs that are LEAST likely to be replaced by AI in the coming years so that they could get a safe head start on protected career choices…This site earns its spot as # 6 on the list.
NautilusLive is a website created by an exploration team of up to 31 members and a science team and 17 ships that allows you join them on their expedition to explore the deep blue ocean “live”. The site updates you on the current ship’s location and lets you tune into different channels to see what’s going on from different camera angles. What makes this site very interesting is how many viewers of the live stream have been able to see the creepiest and sometimes unidentifiable creatures of the deep blue sea caught on camera, which you can find past recordings of on Youtube. The fact that this team has made it possible for any internet user to view the vast depths of the deep blue sea using their computer or phone screen, gives this website a cool #5 on the list.
Plain and simple, this site allows you to see all trace routes of any activity that has happened from your very own IP address, IN REAL TIME. It allows you to see WHAT KIND of data is being sent out and received from and WHERE it is being sent out and received from. Now although this website will take some getting used to if you don’t already have a keen knowledge base of IX maps and internet routing, there’s a beginner friendly resource at the top of the page that will quickly teach you data input and site navigation. Honestly, once you get the hang of the website, you will be shocked to know how many traces are being pinpointed back to your IP address. It may even scare you actually. IXmaps is definitely a MUST for everyone interested in learning more about internet privacy, and because of this, it has claimed its place as the #4 website on the list.
Anyone who first visits this website would probably be confuzzled beyond belief. I know I was. The “Globe of Economic Complexity” is a website that maps the entire world production of goods to create an economic landscape of countries around the globe. One single dot on the screen represents ONE TRILLION DOLLARS of world trade exported goods, which is just absolutely mind boggling. Across the bottom, you’ll also see a color coded bar, which filters the various products being exported by category so you can actually understand what you’re seeing. The Glove of Economic Complexity earns the #3 spot on the list for being such an amazing tool to see the complexity of worldwide economics in a beautiful, graphical and interactive way.
This is probably the most intriguing website on the list. 2050. earth is a website site created by Kaspersky Lab that allows futurists to input various predictions based on research and future projections on a 3D globe. All the future projections are within the 20-year timeline span of the year 2030 to 2050. Upon visiting the website you can click any “decade” of your choosing on the left, drag the globe around and click on any of the small hexagonal icons on the map. Each icon pinpoints to a specific projected event in the future in that desired country. After clicking on the icon, a popup will show, displaying information about that particular event that either a futurist researcher or groups of futurist researchers have contributed to. To take it a step further, there’s also a “ratings” system that allows other users who have already registered on the website, to click on a projected event, and rate a thumbs up or thumbs down in agreement of the likelihood or unlikelihood of the event to actually occur. The futurist researcher who created the event also rates what he thinks the likelihood or unlikelihood of the event to take place based on a percentage factor. A Very very interesting website that will literally keep you in your seat for hours if you have the slightest bit of interest in what will be experiencing as human beings in the coming decades. This site EASILY earns the #2 spot on my list.
100,000 stars by the Google Data Arts Team is a site that I stumbled upon one night at about 11 pm, and I didn’t leave the site until about 3 am the next day. Trust me, this website is bound to keep you in your seat. 100,00 starts allows you to explore 87 of 100,000 stars in a galaxy. If you thought “Google Sky” was something, 100,000 takes it to a whole nother level. As noted on its homepage, “100,000 Stars is an interactive visualization of the stellar neighbourhood created for the Google Chrome web browser. It shows the real location of over 100,000 nearby stars. Zooming in reveals 87 major named stars and our solar system. The galaxy view is an artist’s rendition.” This website is so visually stunning that anyone with a hi rez computer monitor or TV with all the lights out is in for a real treat. This is why I have listed this site as the #1 most amazing website on the list.
