Dragonfly or Insect Spy? Some suspect the insectlike drones are high-tech surveillance tools, perhaps deployed by the Department of Homeland Security...No agency admits to having deployed insect-size spy drones.

GI Jonny, a series of videos on the BBC with accompanying website, is intended to raise awareness of HIV. The first, for example, sees action-figure G.I.

99 Rooms is a collaborative effort among four artists of different types - painter Kim Köster, Richard Schumann and Stephan Shulz on photography and animation, and sound designer Johannes Buenemann - that is more interactive artwork than game.

If you get impatient, the space bar will advance you to the next room. The presentation is morbidly beautiful. more inside
