I have never been accused of being a fan of Adobe Flash, at least not when it comes to full-Flash websites, but the dashboard interface of the new Tesla Model S electric car is an incredible use of the technology!

And finally, I haven’t been able to come up with any clever way to open this one, so… Suspended animation. There, I said it. But now that I’ve said it, no, it isn’t freezing astronauts so they can arrive safely millions of miles away, it is about slowing an injured person’s metabolism to a point that they are essentially dead, and then bringing them back to life when they are ready to be properly cared for. “You’re not dead until you’re warm and dead.” A well-worthwhile 18 minutes and 13 seconds.
