On Glitch This Week

Glitch This Week is a regular series in which we round-up just some of the amazing projects that fantastic creators have made on Glitch. Here are a few projects that caught our eye this week.

An Optical Illusion ✨

You might have seen that brown ball optical illusion doing the rounds on Twitter. Yeah, this one.

Well, Kate Beard re-created it in WebVR. Her delightfully named project "tripping-balls" is a virtual recreation that you can walk around to try and understand just how the illusion works.

Just Jam! 🎹🤖

"ml-jam" by Pablo Samuel Castro features an in-browser keyboard and drum machine. Using Magenta.js, it allows you to jam with machine learning models in real-time and without having to train a thing.

How it works is explained in the accompanying blog post, but it's a way for musicians to make use of machine learning during live performances.

Try Lodge.js ⛰️

Jesse von Doom made lodge.js to make working with bite-sized functionality much simpler. It brings consistency in interaction to the little workflows we often reinvent — modals, quick forms, embeds, and even checkout flows.

It's a single lightweight library that simplifies modal content and enables secure synchronization of events between windows.

Other apps in this week's round-up include a typing game, an interactive art piece, and a crash course in electronics. Check them out!
