Name: Small Sound Toy • Rating: Kinda Cool • Format: Online Software • Play
Designed by Brian Judy and housed amid other interactive experiments at Judy’s boogaholler.com site, Small Sound Toy is a mouse-activated digital xylophone of sorts. Vertical stripes and associated beeps occur in a browser window, depending on where you slide your mouse. As a sound fades over time, it dissolves from full bleep to threadbare blip, and the line gets thinner and less colorful. The leaf pattern in the rotating background image suggests an appropriate use for the toy.
