WELCOME TO THE WEIRD Wide Web – where we take a look at the week’s best offerings in tech and social media news.

Jaw-dropper of the week

This? Oh, it’s just a short film showing the manipulation of individual atoms, magnified over 100 million times, for your entertainment. No biggie.


Challenge of the week

The creator of Minecraft has produced an awesome/frustrating new Unity-based browser game that will leave you wishing your touch-typing skills were up to more.

Drop challenges you…

Death throes of the week

Shower scene of the week

Robert Scoble recently vowed to keep his Google Glass headset on at all times in his quest to test-drive the technology – aside from when he let curious people try it out.
