Some interesting things I found recently:
Tweet A Sound is a desktop application that uses Twitter as a platform for sharing sonic tweets. Pushing the idea of “social sound design”, Tweet A Sound allows you to design a sound and share it in a community of like-minded folks. It is an opportunity for fun interaction with sound.
The sound engine is based on FM Synthesis and has a waveshaper, a delay, feedback and a flanger. You can get a ton of interesting sounds out of these.
Tweet A Sound was built in Max/MSP and is available for download for Mac. A Windows version should be out soon.
Free app for iPhone/iTouch now available.

Kacie Kinzer built some cute robots, set them loose in NYC, and documented the willingness of people to help the bots find their way.
Tweenbots are human-dependent robots that navigate the city with the help of pedestrians they encounter. Rolling at a constant speed, in a straight line, Tweenbots have a destination displayed on a flag, and rely on people they meet to read this flag and to aim them in the right direction to reach their goal.
The new bots look too cute!
