Incredibox is a interactive website that allows users to mix their own beatboxes using the skilled sounds of The Incredible Polo. The website is fun and super simple to use. You just drag and drop the types of sounds on the the beatboxer's t-shirt to add to the mix. Click on any of the beatboxers to remove their sound. The end effect is really enjoyable to experience.

Is This Your Luggage is a website which documents lost luggage, and its contents, through photographs. The luggage is bought through auction (after the airline diligently tries to find its rightful owner - of course), the contents are photographed, and the posted on the website. My favorite part of the site is this justification for collecting lost luggage - "It's a little odd, but not as odd as stamp collecting, just a little harder to find storage space." - Ha.
I wish I had thought of this idea.
Fifty People One Question is a heartwarming little video project created by Crush + Lovely and Deltree. I say "little" because it is such a serenely simple idea, and so simply executed, that it seems effortless. The project does what it says, asks 50 people, in 1 city, 1 question. The questions are also simple: What do you wish to happen by the end of the day? Where would you like to wake up? ...and the answers are varied and beautiful. Watch them all here.

Improv Everywhere is a group of New York based undercover improv agents who organize and execute missions to "cause scenes of chaos and joy in public places". Their missions are all pretty funny and involve some sort of over the top kind gestures. Their latest mission called Welcome Back brought a huge smile to my face. The mission involved 20 "agents" to camp out at JFK airport for the day to welcome strangers. They found a driver in the airport carrying a sign with someones name on it. Then they would fill out all of their welcome home signs accordingly. When that person came to meet their driver they were also met by 20 strangers screaming their name, carrying balloons and flowers. Watch a video of the event here. This is such a brilliant idea.
