Cool Pages

A.L.I.C.E. Artificial Intelligence Robot
This has long been one of my own favorite online sites! Engaging for both adults and for children of all ages. ALICE is the world's smartest "robot", who is very polite, sometimes funny, and very very smart. She knows everything, is patient, and can tolerate mean questions. A far cry from the early days of Eliza and other Artificial Intelligence. Voted "most human" robot, with beautiful blue eyes, too, she lives only to chat.

Archives of Cool Pages
This is the final resting place of Cool Pages once they've been around for a while, without much change. Some oldies but goodies can be found here. (Now archived to save space and quicken load time on this page. A few newer finds below.)

CIA for Kids
From the Central Intelligence Agency (really!), this is an educational and fun site for kids, and adults, too! Join the canine corps, try out disguises, check out aerial photography, or learn about geography, history & the CIA.

Doc Harris Home Page
A wild page! Tiny attack dogs, video surveillance, and witty "ads". A dazzling, irreverant delight.

Guimp.com
"The world's smallest website". Believe it! Click on the icon (which is as big as the page gets) and choose html or flash. You can play a game of pong in such miniature you nearly need binoculars to see. Tiny. The pages are small but there are several features and pages. Truly a conversation piece. (Thanks to Azy for this one!)

Microsoft Research Maps
Billed as "one of the Web's most engaging sites", visitors to the former "Microsoft TerraServer" can tap into the world's largest data base to see aerial photography of just about any place on earth, including your own back yard. Try it!

Powers of 10
A cosmic perspective on the universe, from the Milky Way to sub molecular particles of our backyard plants: In powers of 10. Zoom in from outer galaxies to Earth and its atomic structure. Entertaining & educational.

Silk[New]
Here's a really fun thing. Create your own "magical interactive artwork". Click & hold, use cursor to draw, and watch your wonderful colors & shapes woven into very cool art, 'suitable for framing'. Either a new addiction or a new online stress-reliever. Or both.
