Here are twenty of the latest tools and inspirations I have added to the site.

All       Anyone/Fun       Beginner/Easy       Intermediate/Learner       Expert      

You should be able to open this up, figure out how it works and have fun with this. There are lots of online "toys" that are actually worth playing with just for the experience, they'll give you ideas.


This category is for things that may take a little learning but don't need lots of effort. 


These items will require some studying but are worth the time. You can watch a few YouTube videos to get to grips with it, right? 


These are complex tools for those who are more technically minded, or researchers or professionals. But hey, don't let that stop you.
